My birthplace is the Holy Ghost, Tongues Speaking, Healing Capitol of the World! When I tell people this, they always look stunned, especially Pentecostals and Charismatics. Everyone else responds with, “Oh, yeah! Oral Roberts.” “Did he speak in tongues?”. That is not purpose of my article, now!
What city would that be? To short circuit a multitude of guesses and jockeying for ” edification superiority “, let me just offer my vote; Tulsa, Oklahoma! You know who is from there. And, how many there are of them. Well, here is a seeming authoritative physiological/spiritual take on “Speaking in Tongues”. I have set the following in bold type!
Warning the following is fraudulent!
In Tulsa, Oklahoma, a neurosurgeon and a researcher; was doing research on the relationship between the brain and praying in tongues. Some amazing things were discovered. Through the research and testing, Dr. Peterson found that as we pray in the Spirit; there is activity that begins in our brain. As we engage in our heavenly language, the brain releases two chemical secretions that are directed into our immune system giving a 35 to 40 percent boost to our immune system. This promotes healing within our bodies. This is amazing because this secretion is triggered from a part of the brain that has no other apparent activity in humans. It has only been identified as being activated by our Spirit-led prayer and worship and Slain in the spirit.

So if necessary just babble like a baby! (Where is this in scripture?) Start praising God and yield your tongue to the stirrings that rise up from your heart by the Holy Spirit. Don’t tune in to the sounds being made – attend to what is happening in your spirit. Try to gauge the depth of the outpouring that is taking place from your heart and go with. (As you do this, often over time the sounds emerging from your mouth become more varied and spiritually expressive.)
You’ll get groanings that cannot be uttered in your known vocabulary! You’ll get a tremendous release of pent up, heart-cries to God for His salvation and restoration! You’ll get a new lightness in your spirit!

Isn’t this amazing? How fraudulent this account is! This is the same physician who’s wife, Vicki Peterson, he treated with a drug called Seroquel as a drug used to treat bipolar mania. She was 71, when she died. Peterson was the subject of a bizarre court case in 2005 and 2006, in which the state’s Department of Human Services took custody of Vicki and had Carl Peterson barred from visiting her on the grounds he was giving her the psychotropic drug Seroquel.
