College student thinks speaking in tongues is vital to Christian living, part 5 (final)

I respect your standing and come to you in humility. In all humility please give me a BIBLICAL reference where it suggest tongues is not for everyone or that there is no second baptism. I want to learn too. I will read and look at everything you send. I think too many times when there is something the church doesn’t understand they go off their opinions of it. Which is fine until opinions replace the word of God. When debating this subject I need scripture and not the writings of any other man. I don’t want opions but rather what the word says. So please give me your point of view on it so I can better understand where you are coming from.
Rather than seeking to proof text someone to death about this (maybe I already have), it is better to focus on what God has given his people to do. Love is better than tongues—love for God and love for others. God has nowhere commanded us to speak in languages we have never learned. He has given us all we need for life and godliness (and Peter was talking about the Scriptures), so why go searching for experiences to give you more than what God has already said is enough?
