Filled with the Holy Spirit.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


My question is, that after growing up in Pentecostal church, and leaving it as an adult, I am troubled by their belief that no one is “saved” unless they “are filled with the Holy Ghost, as evidenced by speaking in tongues”.  They believe that even if you are baptized, believe in God, try to live a clean and honest life, that unless you babble in an unknown language for a word or more, you cannot go to heaven.  In my searching for spiritualism, this is one thought that keeps coming to the forefront–can it possibly be true, even though my inner self tells me no.  I would love your insight into this. 


The Holy Spirit is generally recognized in Christianity as the animating, guiding power of the Divine manifesting in our lives. And the gifts of the Holy Spirit are commonly thought to include teaching, knowledge, giving, and mercy.  Interpreting the gift of tongues and prophecy as exclusive signs of salvation by the Holy Spirit is a limited perspective, and doesn’t account for all the enlightened people from all cultures and all eras who have clearly reached the acme of human potential without having had that particular experience of speaking in tongues.
