Salvation, baptism of the
Holy Spirit, & speaking in tongues:

horizontal rule

Overview:

"Speaking in tongues" forms a major part of Charismatic and Pentecostal Christian life. This behavior is linked to an individual's salvation, and subsequent "Baptism of the Holy Spirit."

Although the phenomenon of "tongues" plays a large role in the lives of many tens of millions of conservative Christians, little attention has been paid to it by the scientific community. It is also essentially ignored or looked upon with suspicion by many other Christians.
