Bite me once shame on you ... the new pastor in the "Snake Salvation" church will NOT accept medical treatment today if he's bitten by the rattlesnake that killed his father exactly one week ago.

Cody Coots tells TMZ ... he will indeed handle the deadly snake during the afternoon Kentucky service.  What's more, he says there will be NO anti-venom meds on hand in case the snake attacks again.

And ... if he's bitten and paramedics rush to the church, he'll send them away ... just like his dad Jamie Coots did.

Cody tells TMZ, "I will lay right there and say to everyone, it's God's will.  It's good enough to live by, and good enough to die by."

Snakes do not "attack" people. They defend themselves when threatened.

Adrenaline is a chemical and these pastors are addicts. That's all. Their religion is adrenaline.

What they are doing is sacrificing themselves to snake gods, maybe kundalini. If he knows his father is dead from aggravating these snakes with their silly dancing and annoying singing, then why would he want to follow in his footsteps. I think these people are really possessed by demons making them kill themselves.

No where in the Bible does it say to dance with snakes and then leave snakebites to fester without treatment. It says to meditate on the word. They need to do more meditating and less dancing and showing off. They need to let the snakes lie. Doesn't the Bible say to let sleeping dogs lie, or is that an old adage?

In other words, stop looking for trouble and stop trying to look invincible. You are not whether you believe in God or not. Humble yourself and follow the law of Moses. Stop carrying on like a circus side show looking for gawkers to come in and pay regular entrance fees as tithes.

I think God is going to start cleaning up the churches. The ones who don't measure up are going to be taken out. They had better clean up their act and stop supporting suicide by snake practices.

Refusing treatment has nothing to do with Gods will! One by one they will fall like a house of cards...dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb!

This group is a sect or a cult. Their arrogant expectation of God's great mercy for show is obnoxious.
