yes it is, if you want to see and be part of the old timey pentacostal holiness sprited church you should visit there, the power of god is really strong at this church with people praying, shouting, just like our mamaws and papaws did years ago, todays churchs are pretty dead, dried up and just a place to visit, but this place is a place to worship the almighty GOD, remember, GODS not dead, he is alive and if you need to verify this just pay them a visit, they'll be glad to worship with you.

always an idiot in the crowd, we pray for those kids that gods will be done, theres a reason for everything, we just can't understand the will of god sometimes, thats why you pray and seek his face for wisdom and knowledge, things sometimes seem cruel to us mortal minds but god has a reason and a season for his will to be done if we can just hang in there.

God is with those children being born addicted to drugs, He is not involved in snake handling, that is absolutely true. God isn't confined to the limited concepts of our understanding, God doesn't depend on our knowledge and understanding to act and to be God. Free will that we are given allows that men as a race are allowed to choose good and or evil, some choose evil, and it has consequences beyond themselves. This is part of a fallen nature that humanity has.
Snake handling is not, I repeat NOT of God, but they should be free to worship as they choose.

peter the hermit, this is open youreyes,you are wright i was just saying it that way because snakes would be satans way of mocking the word of god just look at adam and eve,there was a bad sinner that toled me that he looked at snakes in church as a way of keeping some people out of church and it working.

mark 16 read it and let me just say we all need to come together and worship GOD LOVE one another there is no time to be fighting and carry on GOD is love and god is also wrath all i know is we better be ready.. no matter if we pick the snakes up or not if GOD tell you to do something you better do it.. these snake handling ppl are more than just picking up snakes.. their walk with GOD is more than that and if you ask them they will tell you. some have never picked one up but they still believe.. we have to have a relationship with him to know what he would have us do pray much and love always in jesus name

If you are picking up snakes in worsjip of the One True God, then your church is NOT Christian...

Snake Handling is a poor way to show ones faith in God. Instead of being brain washed by some self appointed cult like preacher, a good way to show and live your faith is to do God's work. There must be people in your their own community who need a helping hand. Snake handlers are usually poor uneducated people who get sucked in. A good book to read is "Salvation on Sand Mountain:Snake Handling and Redemption in Southern Appalachia" by Dennis Covington.

you can read all the books you want, I'll stick with the king james version of the holy bible. But just because you don't believe like i do does't mean your a bad person at all, I can still worship and pray with you. I will not push any thing i believe on you but i expect you to do the same and not push anything on me. But if we can agree on anything like praying for the sick then we can pray together anytime, thats the thing about freedom of religion, you do what you feel is right for you, and I'll do what i feel is right for me.
