'Snake Salvation'

Son of Dead Pastor Will REFUSE Treatment

If Snake Bites Again

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."

5. Don't say "God bless you!" when someone sneezes
6. Don't give your children Christian names

In the Bible Satin told Jesus to throw himself off a Mountain to show that his father god would send angels to save him. He wouldn't do it! Why do these people believe they are better than Jesus???

yea cause if their was such thing as a "god" he would involve himself in your petty hobby of playing with venemous snakes. He would have much much more important things to bothe rwith.

They miss interpret the whole scripture ...how foolish, what are they on acid? God didn't mean in that scripture to literally go out and pick up poison snakes to prove your faith.

I wonder if Mr. Coots jumped off the Empire State Building if he thinks if it's God's will, he wouldn't be killed. I think God gave us a brain to think with in order to keep us from cutting short our time on earth.
