OK, so here is how I see it. If I where going to be a Christian, I think that God would prefer that I go out into the world and try to reach the lost. I think that God would prefer that try to encourage others to follow us instead of running away. I think that would much rather see his Christians on mission trips instead of shaking starved to death milked snakes. I think that he'd rather see his Christians trying to save the lost from the fire of hell instead of playing around with it at church, and instead of drinking poison, I think that God would rather see his Christians drinking from the well.

And speaking of the so called "faith healers"... Why is it that the only time you see healings are in controld environments such as churches. If I was a faith healer, I would visit every ICU, Childrens Hospital, and Cancer unit in the country. But well, just research Peter Popoff and you will see that these faith healers are nothing but fraudes.

In conclusion, if you are a Christian, lay down that near dead snake, get out from behind those closed doors and act like Jesus.

Jimmy Rants 1:69 Thou Shalt not be a moron, and stick thy hands anywhere around a poisonous snake unless you are mentally deranged.

If your God asks you to do this, then your god is also an idiot.

<quoted text> well what about a spiting cobra, there poison will get you on contact to eye or any opening of the body, even the mouth, so YEAH try swallowing!
I will repeat this for you one last time. Nothing will happen if you swallow snake venom unless you have a sore in your mouth or bleeding gums. Venom has to get into your blood stream to be dangerous. You'd think as many years as folks around here have been worshiping snakes they would be a little more familiar with them.

Here is a website were you can learn all about snakes.

http://ufwildlife.ifas.ufl.edu/venomous_snake...

Notice:

What is the difference between poison and venom?
If you drink venom, will it kill you?

Poisons are substances that are toxic (cause harm) if swallowed or inhaled. Venoms are generally not toxic if swallowed, and must be injected under the skin (by snakes, spiders, etc.) into the tissues that are normally protected by skin in order to be toxic.

PS. I know for a fact that many of these people milk the snakes before taking them to church. When taken dry bites into account it is virtually impossible to die from a milked snake bite.

Hi i just wanted to tell you not to waste your time at some of these churches. They won't talk to reporters or anyone writing a book. There is about 3 in London, 3 in the Manchester and Hyden Area, more near harlan but they will not let you video or take pictures in the service if they no you are doing it. If u want somewhere that will let you it's Jamie coots church in Middlesboro and Andrew hamblins church in lafollette Tennessee. I know this from experience all my family goes to these churches so I have been more then I care to count. You can try but they have never let anyone before. I don't really understand why but its just how they are. Good luck with your book how I was able to give some help.

to my opinion wrote:
OK does it mean to spiritually lay hands on the sick not naturally.. I am curious .. i have been to snake handling churches before. I have seen people handle them.. I saw one lady handle one and I know she was a good christian lady.. she was as Lifeless as a piece of string..The LORD had to be with her or else...
I am not going to condemn anyone for how they beleive and what thier religion is but I am gonna say if they have the power to pick up the serpents. THEN signal out someone in the crowd that has cancer and PRAY for them with laying on hands and see them healed. OOPS i Dont wanna judge ..BUT These are questions in my mind..
I agree 100% with you!

He speaks true. If you say otherwise then you are the liar. Put that in your church pipe and smoke it.

Mark does say it. And for those that believe nothings gonna change it. For those who don't believe nothing but the grace of God is gonna open up their minds to it but the Holy Ghost. Just like it did all those before us who had never come into contact with it. Just like it did for me. I've never handled a serpent or fire.(I have prayed over the sick and the Holy Ghost Moved and a boy was healed.)
1 thing I would say. You have to live a close sanctified life for the signs to follow you. None of us are perfect but there is a way of holy living we have to strive for.
Don't try to take up for the way, just walk in it and pray for those who don't believe.
I am interested in chatting with someone who goes to a trinity signs church and who believes in the saved sanctified Holy Ghost baptized experience.
My gmail is paulstrength11@gmail.com. would especially like to talk with some of the Saylors from rural street church if possible. I have some questions.
