Wouldn't have happened of said pastor was baptized.

Re: Pastor using Snakes to prove faith in God gets bitten and die
Isn't your "god" supposed to be a loving and understanding god? Instead he seems like a little vengeful bitch who likes to exert his power arbitrarily or whenever he feels like it. All I see going on in this world is chaos and turmoil...

Your "loving" god sure has a funny way of showing love and comprehension.

There are many unanswered questions but I suppose that's what faith is all about.Faith that God is like you said loving ,like really if he wanted to exert his power you would dead by now.So lucky for you he has shown grace letting you live a little longer.Just something to think about

Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple
"If you are the Son of God," he said, "throw yourself down. For it is written: "'He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'"

Jesus answered him, "It is also written: 'Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'"

There's a difference between getting bit by accident and getting bit on purpose. That man was putting on a show, and boasting about his faith, which is a big no-no in God's eyes.

Re: Pastor using Snakes to prove faith in God gets bitten and die
He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years."

"1Rescue me, O Lord, from evil men;
protect me from men of violence,
2who devise evil plans in their hearts
and stir up war every day.
3They make their tongues as sharp as a serpent’s; the poison of vipers is on their lips.       Selah"

"1Do you rulers indeed speak justly?
Do you judge uprightly among men?
2No, in your heart you devise injustice, and your hands mete out violence on the earth.3Even from birth the wicked go astray; from the womb they are wayward and speak lies. 4Their venom is like the venom of a snake, like that of a cobra that has stopped its ears, 5that will not heed the tune of the charmer, however skillful the enchanter may be." psalm

"But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent's cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.

The fact that this pastor believes that God meant physical snakes should be a lesson to us all. Yes, he tested the Lord, but he tested Him based on falsehood and no understanding.

West Virginia is the only state where snake handling is legal. In 8th grade social studies class we were all required to watch a documentary on snake handling. They interviewed a bunch of people that handled snakes. At the end of the film they told us when every single one of them died from snakebite.

When my dad would happen across a snake while ginsenging he would collect them and sell them to the churches. $20 a piece. Some days he brought home more copperheads and rattlesnakes than he did ginseng.

Re: Pastor using Snakes to prove faith in God gets bitten and die
If you look up the bible verse he was relying upon

i.e. taking up serpents


and you look up the word serpent in a Greek concordance


it says it means


a sly, cunning PERSON



Read the bible for yourself and use a concordance. Don't rely on preachers.

No, my mother and father on a drunken night decided to have sex in the bathtub. When my dad came, he ejaculated inside my mother and then, I won the race! Your "god" has not created me. I am a product of my parents' loins! Yep! I am also a descendant of apes! Too bad we evolved into humans though, we caused a lot less damage as apes.

Also, you're saying that if your "god" wanted to exert his power on me, I'd be dead? Really? Your loving "god" sure has a HELL (pun intended) of an anger management problem.

Re: Pastor using Snakes to prove faith in God gets bitten and die
I still to this day have no desire to handle snakes. However, Mark 16 is inspired scripture.



15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.



But then so is:



And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, You shall not test the Lord your God.



In all my visits to find old time Pentacostal churches, there was a very specific reason that I stayed away from appalachia.

don't laugh too much. That same crap is about to happen to the entire world for putting faith in "society".

The bite will be painful and most likely deadly
