Dear wilson609: I would like you understand the pattern of pentecostal worship. You certaily did not have any clue.
(I do not know anything about above mentioned event. There fore I will not defend it nore condemn it.)
There have been lot of propaganda about the confusion and violation of Biblical priciples when speaking in tongues in the pentecostal servieces.
This is a very false notion presented to gullible people who does not understand pentecostal pattern of worship.
when there are special tarry meetings/fasting and prayer people will gather and given time for free woship. This is the individual prayer time. During this time people may praise God in the spirit. This may be singing loud with beating of drums and clapping of hands. This is a time of individual praise.
If there is anyone receives a special word of knowledge often times that person beging to speak and everyone quet down. It have been my experiece when some one has a special word all those who are speaking in tongues often recognizes and stops immediately for that person to speak. This might happen in the process of one person speaking in tongues and another person interpretting it or being interpretted by the speaker.
Second there are time for intercessory prayer. Everyone is encouraged to pray together but be quiet enough for the person leading the prayer to be heared.
When the word is preached no one speaks in tongues. If anyone speak, he/she is asked to be quiet. If the inturruption continues despite the control of the servants of the Lord then it is often understood as demon posesion.
There is a defit order and Biblical pattern is fallowed in most pentecostal servieces. In some places where there no Biblically trained ministers might not know what to be done in certain circumstances. One groups mistake should not be counted as the norm. Your byist should not used when you are looking at the realtiy of the true worship in the spirit.
may The Holy spirit help you to understand the true wors
