I myself am a Apostolic/Pentecostal raised 27 year old. I was raised in the church my father is a minister. I am trying to learn about the coptic church. Can someone help me understand your stance on speaking in tongues. I read on why you do not do it, I understand that. But my question is for example if a person is from Egypt and they speak Arabic how do they speak in tongues? I am sure arab speaking individuals have and do speak in tongues...Do they speak English? Discuss please.
