Question: How about the deaf and dumb? They are unable to speak, so will they be lost because they didn't speak in tongues?

Answer: It is not wise to establish doctrines based on what seem, from a human perspective, to be exceptional circumstances. Sound doctrine is established only by the clear teachings of the Scriptures. Certainly God, within His grace, must have some plan for those who have no capacity to speak. But the Bible does not tell us about this.

I, Dave Huston, have personally witnessed a deaf man receive the Holy Spirit and speak in tongues.
