Many Christians on blogs and Facebook are upset with the Pentecostal preacher who let her fingers do the talking. From the AT2W blog (via Jenée Desmond-Harris):

When we have ministers like the late Zachery Tims who had a drug habit and who was recently discovered dead in a NYC hotel room; Bishop Eddie Long who allegedly had several affairs with teenage boys and young men; marriages that continue to end in divorce between couples in the ministries, we must address what seems to be the problem within the body of Christ and a lot of it is, rebellion, greed and lust. However, when we look at this Facebook page of Dr. Juanita Bynum II, it seems as though, she is allowing the Devil to misrepresent God’s Kingdom, and maybe this is a mental issue. No one in their right mind would ever think that you can type out speaking in tongues.

Let us read this together, in the book of Acts 2:1-4, it says this:

1 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them (or gave them utterance).

This is why we all have to be led of the spirit and be careful who we follow, because no matter how good one preaches or can make us feel good, demons travel and we cannot allow them to take dominion over the body of Christ.

A Dish reader:

Allow me to share some Scripture from 1 Corinthians 14:26-28 and 33:

What then, brothers? When you come together, each one has a hymn, a lesson, a revelation, a tongue, or an interpretation. Let all things be done for building up. 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……For God is not a God of confusion but of peace.

Just who exactly was built up by this typing in tongues? No one and certainly not God. Well, except for the "Prophetess" – she was very clearly built up in the eyes of the 470 people who Liked her post. Christ died so Juanita Bynum II can get mad props on Facebook. Bloody hell.
