- Uti Nwachukwu has expressed strong reservations against the act of speaking in tongues particularly because of the lack of interpretation
- Uti noted that a lot of people now abuse the religious practice and even resort to faking it
- The media personality warned against saying ‘amen’ especially when the words spoken in tongues are not understood
Nigerian media personality Uti Nwachukwu has taken to social media with a religious topic that appears to have been giving him major concern for some time.
Uti in a series of posts shared on Twitter delved into the act of speaking in tongues in Christianity, and how it is worrisome that there is hardly any interpretation for the words spoken in tongues.
According to Uti, the religious practice has been abused in the Christian community and it has even gotten to a point where people easily fake it.

“Speaking in tongues has been abused so much in the Christian community because its SOOO EASY TO FAKE IT. Its way more difficult to fake interpretation so they emphasise of speaking! Its so bad that you are made to feel like an infidel if you can't speak in tongues! Whyyy???”
Uti pleaded with those who care to listen to refrain from answering ‘amen’ whenever they do not understand prayers being offered in tongues.

To drive his point home, Uti noted that most people wouldn’t sign a life-changing contract which is written in a foreign language, as such they should be careful when it comes to prophecies and declarations being offered in tongues.
He also shared Bible passages to back up his statement.
Uti’s submission generated a host of mixed reactions from his followers on the platform.
