"The Lord is not boxed in by what he wants to do..."

I never understood this statement. It seems like many who make this statement don't understand or consider that God works through means. Can God do what he wants? Yes! But he has chosen to work according to what he has revealed to us in scripture. I know this doesn't directly address the question but this statement doesn't add any clarity to the debate.

Apart from D.A. Carson, I still have yet to hear a thorough exegesis from continuationists of the texts that deal with tongues. Most of the arguments, including Piper's, comes from silence or experience. I was quite astonished from what I found in the OT regarding the sign of tongues and judgment. For the record, I come from a background that encouraged speaking in tongues.

I really don't see a huge emphasis on this particular gift after 1 Cor., and church history for that matter, which is why a lot of expository preachers don't emphasize it very much.
