Ok so what about these Bible verses?
It says that someone must interpret it I'm not saying that the Pentecostal churches don't have some of their interpreted but my friend said that he went to a Pentecostal church because his brother did and the people were just babbling and nobody was interpreting what someone was saying and I went to another place and someone told me that we could speak in tongues when we pray to Jesus and that it was our special language or something and I just didn't think that that was in line with what the Bible says about speaking in tongues if a church is speaking in tongues and they're in line with how these Bible verses say they're supposed to speak in tongues but if people are just speaking battling that doesn't make sense then they have to be careful. As long as the church is in line with these words then if they want to speak in tongues if God wants to speak in tongues they can do so but it says that they should not speak if there's no one there to interpret. And how do you know someone is just babbling and the other person is just interpreting what they've made up in their own minds? That's why I believe that the interpreting of speaking in tongues have to do with interacting with different believers that speak different languages if I speak English and you speak Chinese and neither of us have ever learned a word of English or Chinese and we had an interpreter that could just interpret what we were saying at church even though they also never do that language then that would be considered in my opinion speaking of tongues. Like on the day of Pentecost that's what it was it was the new believers and they were all speaking in tongues and understanding each other even though they're from different countries and spoke different languages.
I'm sure people speak in tongue sometimes but from what I've heard most of the Pentecostal churches just aimlessly Babble I saw the videos on YouTube of the Pentecostal churches speaking in tongues and it doesn't look like it's really people speaking in tongues it looks like aimless babbling

If any speak in a tongue, let there be only two or at most three, and each in turn, and let someone interpret. But if there is no one to interpret, let each of them keep silent in church and speak to himself and to God.

When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance. Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men from every nation under heaven. ...

If, therefore, the whole church comes together and all speak in tongues, and outsiders or unbelievers enter, will they not say that you are out of your minds?
