I don't think our spirituality is the issue. I think if you study the history of
dispensations you will see that things unfold in a certain way, for a certain
reason, and when some gifts are no longer necessary they are no longer manifest.
Or they are manifest in different ways. I was blessed with the gift of tongues
when I was set apart for my mission by my stake president, later 1Q70 Ted E.
Brewerton. He explained afterwards that he didn't mean it in the sense of
"glossolalia" but that I would have an interest in, and a talent for learning
foreign languages. That was news to me at the time, but turned out to be true. My
son was given the same gift, and he now speaks three foreign languages fluently.
Because that's what the Church needs now.
