    While what you are saying is true, that is a given, everyone knows we a Believer receives the Holy Spirit within them, even if they do not Pray in Tongues.

    I know It sounds like I'm splitting hairs, but we are infilled with the Spirit upon our Baptism, and a Believer receives the Gifts at a different time, not at all related to the Indwelling.

    This in my opinion is part of the problem people have, they are believing it all take place at the same time when it clearly does not, just because a Bleiever has the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, does not mean they have any of the Gifts of the Spirit.

    Mohammed was a False Prophet.

    It is impossible for Muslims and Hindus to have Prophecy and Tongues, they are both False Religions and do not in any way represent the One True God.

    Like I said, just because something may be used out of order, does not mean it has ceased.

    All of Scripture does not say what you think it says.

    If the Gifts come from the Holy Spirit, don't we get them when we receive Him? When they are expressed or utilized is a different matter. But I won't argue with you on when we get them because we're already in agreement that they exist :)
