    Many Pentecostals disagree with that.

    It is spiritually damaging to be taught that you must speak in tongues.

    It does say that in places like 2Thess 2 for one who turns away from hearing truth? But it does not say that not knowing about truth to start with is the problem. "if you were blind you would have no sin" John 9:41

    "To him that knows to do right and does it not - to him it is sin James" 4:17

    So on the one hand God "has you covered" for that which you honestly don't know.

    But if you try and "play God for a fool" well then Gal 6:7 "God is not mocked". So then God is not fooled by someone "trying not to learn truth or be corrected" as if that sort of "ignorance" will be a safe guard for them. He marks such a person as one who "turns away from hearing truth" and 2Thess 2 results.

    you are fine "not knowing stuff" but you are not fine "turning away from the Word of God on purpose".

    Satan uses scare tactics to scare the saints into "paralysis of the spirit" too afraid to look into the Word of God for fear that they might do something or think something "wrong". It is the one thing Satan cannot defeat so he sets his minions around it to say "shoo shoo - get away from here. ... be afraid to look"

    You don't have to speak in tongues. You don't have to be baptized, ( but you should do this as a public profession of your faith). Churches have short courses on what the "believer Baptism" is. Or "Immersion baptism". You will learn what it is for and what it represents and why you should do it. You will also learn some basics of Christianity and how to read the bible, have daily devotions and about prayer.

    You are a new Christian. Find a good church that preaches the gospel. Get into a small group or find someone who can be your mentor and accountability partner.

    Don't go trying to become an super Christian. It will take time for you to grow, learn and understand the depth of your relationship with Christ.

    The Baptism WITH the Spirit does NOT save anyone, neither Baptism WITH water. There is only one baptism that saves us and that is?

    If any church or denomination teaches that Tongues is necessary for salvation then they are FALSE teachers...

    True -- we just normally don't stick "-amatic" or "-matic" at the end.
