The bible tells you not to talk in tongues to other people, because you would sound like a drunken fool, yet people do it all the time. I have never understood talking in tongues and it makes no sense to me. people tell me it just overcomes them, my question is what overcomes you? Am I not a good enough Christian for god to not speak through me?
My only thought is he who knows does not speak, he who speaks does not know.

Speaking in tongues is used for a lot of things. There are no words to explain how good God is, speaking in tongues is using a different- sometmes a heavenly language to worship God.
Praying for people can be hard, sometimes people pray for people in tongues.
Why did the person you were talking about act like he was possesed? I dont know. I dont think thats right but I dont know. Speaking in tongues is not neccesary, it doesnt mean ur not a christian if you cant speak in tongues and speaking in tongues isnt extreamly imortant.
Being open to the holy spirit is hard, some people want the holy spirit there so much they will almost act strange. When the holy spirit is there in power its an amazing experience.
hope that helps a bit.
