I speak in tongues (1 Cor. 14:18)

“I thank God

That I speak

In tongues

More than all of you.”;

εὐχαριστῶ τῷ Θεῷ, πάντων ὑμῶν μᾶλλον γλώσσαις λαλῶ·

Paul then said that he thanks God (εὐχαριστῶ τῷ Θεῷ) that he speaks in tongues (γλώσσαις λαλῶ) more than all of them (πάντων ὑμῶν μᾶλλον).  Now Paul made an astonishing statement.  He said he often thanked God in tongues, more than any of the other Christian people in Corinth.  Thus, he was not trying to degrade this practice, but only put it into context.  He himself was a tongue speaker.  Are you a tongue speaker?
