Laying on of tongues short-lived

Church Life

Call it a simple mistake made by neophyte believers, or an error based on cross-doctrinal confusion but a group of young believers at a fledgling church known as Sweet Lips Community Fellowship, in Chester County, Tennessee has seen the error of its ways.

“All we really wanted to do was bless people,” said Chrissy Fullhug from nearby Finger, Tennessee. “We simply got our doctrines mixed up.”

Fullhug went on to explain: “We see in the Bible that blessings are often imparted by the laying on of hands. We also know that speaking in tongues is sometimes referred to as the ‘second blessing.’ When we started practicing the laying on of tongues, we were just confused.

“Some liked it at first and seemed to really be encouraged. Many, however, seemed pretty uncomfortable with the practice. Visitors didn’t know what to think and most never returned. Well, except for that creepy fat guy with the chihuahua. He came back for a few weeks in a row.

“We are thankful that one of the founding members, who wishes to remain anonymous, spoke up and pointed out that the laying on of tongues isn’t really found in the Bible. We at Sweet Lips Community Fellowship were at first stunned, then embarrassed by our error, but were somewhat relieved to be corrected. We will be more careful as we move forward,” said Fullhug.
