comment What is the difference between St Thomas Aquinas and Abbot Suger's interpretation of the term “anagogic”?
I wrote a lengthy answer, of which became accidentally deleted-only 1 paragraph survived-which in my extreme anguish I deleted. After I recover from my extreme chagrin, I may attempt this again.

comment Are there two different types of “tongues” spoken about in the NT?
Another argument appears to be that there is no such thing as "tongues of angels", Paul is loosely interpreting "ecstatic speaking" of which no interpretation is needed or required, but it should not be manifested during a normal church service, especially when unbelievers are present. I don't particularly agree with that view but a legitimate argument can be made for such which I would certainly +1 for.

comment Are there two different types of “tongues” spoken about in the NT?
The OP's question asked if "2 different types of tongues in the NT"; 1 of which are tongues of men, and 1 "mysteries of God", or tongues of angels per 1 Cor. 13:1. His question centers around these 2 entities, not whether or not the church at Corinth had issues which the Apostle Paul had to deal with. It is "ad hominem" to suggest that because the church in Corinth was immature, therefore their giftings are invalid. The 1st answer calls the 2 manifestations as 'different operations', and certainly an argument can be made for that.(cont.)

No DV's for you, as you have taken the initiative to 'look at' rather than 'look against'. What I'm waiting to see here in these answers is CONTEXT: in other words, what CONTEXT is Paul speaking about when he gives his dictum concerning tongues? We certainly contextualize his argument about "a woman keeping silence, and all submission" as not meaning a woman may NEVER speak in church. Why don't we follow Paul's discussion about a Public Sunday Morning Worship Service, and not 'blanket it to mean 'in every circumstance'?(see 1 Cor. 1:23)

If the disciples "spoke in tongues" in Acts 2:4, and they were Galileans, how then would they have interpreted "what the Spirit gave them utterance"? Would they then have to wait for the appropriate linguist before they would 'give utterance' to what they knew not? Also, in Acts 10:46 they(Cornelius & household) spoke in tongues-who interpreted? It was said they "magnified God", but in what language?

BTW- I have upvoted many of your posts, as they are usually thoughtful, articulate, and knowledgeable. I believe in this case your 'prejudice' has obscured your ability to give an insightful argument.

My purpose is to expose your 'conjecturing' your own feelings concerning the text, and making Paul somehow 'agree' with them. If you are taking issue w/"tongues of angels", I would concede you have a point, and could bring evidence to uphold your convictions. This post doesn't do that, it simply 'denigrates' that practice and puts Paul 'somehow' in your camp.

comment David and Jonathan - why the secret meeting?
@NathanFriend To keep from betraying David's location, if Saul changed his mind. The idea was 'hopefully' David could come out and re-unite himself with Saul's family, BUT, if that didn't work out, then a way had to be devised to reveal Saul's intentions and not reveal David's location. Saul knew his son and David were 'buddy-buddies' and Jonathan's servant would have revealed David's location. Since Jonathan was merely engaged in a little target practice, the 'heat' was off and Jonathan's servant left Jonathan(and David) alone.

I don't read anywhere in the text that Paul said the use of tongues was "self-centered". I do read in the text where he proscribes their usage "decently, and in order". Oh, and by the way, women are told to keep silent in church, so apparently from 'proper exegesis' of this passage, only men spoke in tongues.......?

It's simply "ad hominem" to infer a particular behavioral pattern(and Paul's response to it) when Paul himself says," I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all( 1 Cor. 14:18). If you're going to make a case against angelic tongues, make it, but don't make the text say what it doesn't say.

@Dell Welcome to BH! We are a little bit different here, if you read the site guidelines it will help you "Frame" your question correctly. Since the reference was edited out, you may want to add some other research to illustrate your question-although in my opinion it is fine the way it is.
