You can have your Gibberish

Luke 10:18-20 (ESV)
And he said to them, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. [19] Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you. [20] Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven."

Rejoice that your names are written in heaven. I suppose this is the thing I hate most about the Pentecostal and charismatic movements, they lose sight of this. Everyone wants to focus on what their spiritual gifts are. Well I’d be happy for the one concerning administration. But when it is all said and done, I’m glad my name is written in heaven. Whatever else does or does not happen, that is something to be thankful for. You can have your gibberish.

And it's also heartbreaking that their gibberish is so much more important to them than receiving the Holy Spirit in baptism.
