There is a new documentary show on tv about a small church in southern KY where they handle snakes during the services, an off shoot of Pentecostal I believe.
They go out in the local forest to get the snakes and use rattlesnakes and water moccasins mostly, so these are not snakes bought in a store or used to being handled. I was surprised when they were holding these snakes and dancing around, the snakes were not biting them!! The pastor said out of the 30 yrs he has been leading the congregation, he has only been bit twice, I find this hard to argue with, Is there really something to this?
I dont think anyone could get by with luck for over 30 yrs when it comes to handling dangerous snakes, almost every day, so it is not luck, other than God himself, not sure what else it could be.
Along with the snake handling, they also have propane torches, and I saw little 12 yr old kids holding these LIT torches up to their hands, and NOTHING happened, their skin was perfectly fine after the service…How is this possible? Again, the only thing I can think of, is IT TRULY is God acting on these people.
Dont worry though, Im not about to go join one of these churches, Im just curious how the things they have been doing for decades and decades has not caused many of them to die, especially holding torches right up on your skin!! If I did this, my skin would burn off, but theirs do not for some reason. We all laugh about these types of people, but is it possible they know something we do not?
