Yes you make sense.  

And yes some of them are just caught up in their own emotions.

But the gifts of the Spirit, (Speaking in tongues is the one most are worried/concerned with) is a tool of prayer.

It says somewhere that you should desire interpeting over the gift of tongues. or something like that. I will look it up later.

I've seen some wacky things that people do and I'm not totally convinced they are real  (the people)

Early 57,

Actually, speaking in tongues, is what occured at Pentecost. (Acts 2:4), they spoke to men, not God, and men understood them, contrast this, with 1 Cor 14:2-4.

The gift of divers tongues, is not the same thing, because, this is not understood by men, because who speaketh in a tingue he speaketh mysteries in the spirit, 1Cor 14:2.

I think this is where the confusion lies..

Also, see Acts 10:46, Cornelius, and his household began speaking in tongues, as Peter spoke the Gospel to them, and they,

45  And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Note that no one who came with Peter, when they heard them speak in tongues, asked for an interpretation, they all heard and understood, what was being said;  

vs 46  ......................"they heard them speak in tongues and magnify God"

I think "and magnify god", meant that they glorified Jesus; the reason why I say this is because, they all understood that they also had received the Holy Spirit, as they had on the day of Pentecost.

Their answer might have had something to do with 1 Cor 12:3..

Anyhow, Praise the Lord..
