Many today teach that speaking in tongues is required for salvation. The notion that speaking in tongues is even related to salvation stems from two things. First, that Jesus said believers, “will speak in new tongues”. But secondly is the mistaken conclusion that the “baptism of the Holy Spirit” is connected to one’s salvation.
Therefore, when put together, one might say, “As a result of being baptized with the Holy Spirit, a true believer will speak in tongues.” The prerequisite questions are important here so make sure to review them as they form the basis to understand if speaking in tongues is required for salvation.
