    I find it ironic that his father died of a snake bite when he was 5...

    Oh really? A West Virginia Pentecostal pastor who used poisonous snakes during religious services has died of a rattlesnake bite.

    Do you think Jesus was pissed off at him? Do you think he was an ignorant cretin?

    Yes, I think it is OK to laugh at this one.

    Since he was a preacher, I'll tell you what my pastor preaches.


    That God did not give us the spirit of fear, but of love and a sound mind. This doesn't mean he didn't give us the EMOTION of fear. The spirit of fear and the emotion of fear are different things. When a big old snarling dog comes running at you, it invokes the emotion of fear, as does the rattling of a rattlesnake. These emotions are good for the preservation of your person. They tell you to get from where ever you are quick like and in a hurry.

    My preacher also says that God gave us common sense. "Jesus take the wheel". Yeah, try that next time you're going down the interstate. See, God isn;t in TOTAL control of your protection, you're responsible for it too. We're not co-dependent on God, we're co-laborers with Him.

    Apparently this old dude isn't reading the the same Bible as my preacher, or he's just interpreting it differently. Because nowhere that I know of does That Book say to go pick up a snake and God will protect you. What an idiot the guy was.

    So many better ways to demonstrate faith. Like doing good in the world. I never understood handling snakes and drinking strychnine.

    Here's another article showing the guilty serpent. I wonder if the snake will be put down.

    Yes it's ok to laugh.


    So, does it prove something since the snake bit him and killed him? I'm guessing it's supposed to prove something when the snake DOESN'T bite him.

    To each his own. What bothered me was the words Bible and Required in the same sentence in that article. Hope that was an ignert reporter and not an ignert fam'blee member.

    Guess the snake couldn't read the Bible.





    The snake did what snakes do.
