'Snake Salvation'

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."

The bible said..Then jesus was led uo by the spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil,,And the tempter came and said "If you are the son of god ,command theses stones ti become loaves of breads.." But he answered, .."It is written , MaN shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds fron the mouth of god...The the devil took him to the holy city ,and set him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to him.." If you are are the son of god, throw yourselfdown,for its written:He will give his angels charge of you,and on their hands they will bear you up,lest you strike your foot against a stone,,..Jesus said,.."Again , it is written,YOU SHALL NOT TEMPT YOUR LORD........Personaly i think is disrespectful to anyone to call a pastor idiots,,people should their word wisely when they talk about servant of god...no matter what religion.. But also any body doesn t have to use deadly animals to prove their faith...God said he will protect and keep us safe but that doesn t mean to go and put yourself in danger..Remember,Don t tempt your God..

I don't get it - if it's illegal to kill yourself just put them on a 5150 psych hold. You can't jump off a building to prove your faith?

Idiot. One less from the gene pool too if it (hopefully) strikes again.

I think our creator has more important things on his mind than saving these Hill illy-swamp-rats. Some little things that come to mind are starving/sick children, cancer, war and natural disasters. BTW...none of these people have jobs or even a legitimate church. Whenever the camera catches the audience it consists of several family members and a homeless person looking for entertainment.
