First of all I want to make sure I have this right (please correct me if I'm wrong) the Holy Ghost/Spirit are the same thing? I know receiving the Holy Ghost/Spirit is something essential for christians to continue on in Christ but from what I've been told recently is that I NEED to be "baptized" with the Holy Ghost as a confirmation. I thought that when you repent and accept Christ into your life you receive the holy ghost/spirit (comforter). I kow God has given me a lot of gifts but I haven't received the gift of speaking in tongues and I'm told every christian should have that gift. Our pastor uses Acts 2 and says that the Holy Ghost is a promise to ALL believers and if we don't have it we should ask for it. So now I'm wondering what is the holy ghost? speaking in tongues? I'm confused. Can anyone please help?
