Sorry to be a party pooper here but I think most ''gifts'' are a load of nonsense. It reminds me of televangelists who shout ''away ye devil!'' while crying hallelujah at cancer patients. All to no avail of course. Scams and much suffering continues in the name of some religion. Speaking in tongues? Sounds like learned behaviour [see Jesus Camp film]. And no fortune teller has given us accurate predictions, just general statements. I've read too many over the years, also things that were supposed to happen in the past 15 years. But people keep falling for it over and over again.
