Mark 16:18 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well."

Lefty...LOL!

In west Tennessee it was the Holiness church which practiced this. I don't believe the Church of God did. You can imagine how impressed I was at the first service where I saw some of this. I was ten at the time.

How do you interpret this? I'm especially interested in the part about the drinking the poison.... certainly not something to be taken literally right?

Is it pick and choose with the bible? Literal and some not? I don't get it. I would think if they are God's words he would not want to be so round about, people back then would take it literally. I think it either is or it isn't.

Regardless of how I interpret it I have seen a woman drink a mixture of tea and Merry War Lye and though sickened by it she lived to tell about it.

How amazing. Especially considering Mark ended with 16:8 and all the rest was added by other authors through time.
