Gov’t Seizes 50 Venomous Snakes From Serpent-Handling Pastor’s Church

Snake handling may not be a mainstream fixture of American Christianity, but it’s still being practiced in some churches, particularly in the deep south. Case in point: Fifty venomous snakes were seized this week from the Tabernacle Church of God in LaFollette, Tenn.

The Associated Press reported that Pastor Andrew Hamblin, whose deadly serpent handling has been featured on television programs, was cited by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency for possessing the venomous snakes.

The seizure took place when authorities went to Hamblin’s home on Thursday and asked if he had any of the deadly animals inside. While the pastor said no, he did admit to housing them at the church. ...

Hey Pam, since nobody else responded, I'll say that the denomination that seems to take lone verses to build doctrines out of would go right back to Charismatic. What particular scriptures are taken out of context and misused by other denominations? I don't know, I'm asking.

John, I'm sure it did and you were right..people forget there are two sides to God( at least that's what I've understood to be true) one is love and redemption and if that's rejected then we have wrath and judgement as a result.

I know just the sort of thing you mean Dolores, as I attended a similar thing in rural Somerset once, which was interdenominational. We used material by WEC International.

All thought themselves Christians, and while we studied the Bible following the notes, there was no dissension. But when we got onto the subject of God's immense love, I commented that God's love was only relevant because of his wrath and justice and holiness. Because he loves, he must punish sinners. This did not go down very well.

The group comprised of four or five nominal Christians (unregenerate) and two Christians. I hope my input made them think.

Wow! Another denomination basing their beliefs and doctrine off of one part of scripture and on top of that, they take it completely out of context. The sad part is I'm sure somebody has tried to explain to them and teach them what they're doing is rediculous and I'm sure they've acted like the one correcting them was the one who was lost. Lol! Sad. Just praying for them

Cont.for each day's lessons to be discussed in the next weeks meeting together..songs were sung..had a lecturer and notes to take back home and hopfully help clear up any thing with more questions to answer..really neat and this is where I learned God's love for me and did not have to work to earn or keep my salvation.The Holy Spirit drew me to Jesus and He has keep me in Christ and one day He will take me home to be with Christ.

By the way, these guys are a Church of God (charismatic) outfit, who are also "faith healers," the very groups Baptists were warned about in their internal periodicals last century. They were warned in 1890 that these groups would appear and spread across the country, and that's exactly what they did. They didnt show up in Topeka, Kansas till 1900. The famous LA group (Azusa street revivals) came afterwards. Bretheren, pray fo us (2 Thes 3:1).

(continued from below)...Montanists, (aka dinosours) otherwise, more of this will continue. They were warned of this a century ago when the liberalized their polity. Hopefully they will listen to reason, pray for them.

I definitely do not agree with this practice, but what is the difference in these people basing their practice ON ONE scripture and all of the other different denominations basing their practice on ONE SCRIPTURE?
( food for thought....please thinkabout what is written BEFORE responding.)

Andrew Hamblin is obviouly an articulate intelligent person, he even taunts the Baptist (at 1:45; Feeding video 2nd one at the Blaze page) mocking them for their hypocrasy. The decay of modern evangelism is on display here. Baptists better get their church gov't in order or they'll go the way of the

These types of things are what give Christianity a bad rep. Sometimes I'd rather them be atheists than confuse all the potential believers. The devils done a mighty work in the US.

Faith cometh be hearing, not feeling, in this case, fear of being bitten, and overcoming that fear. These type of people have little or no faith. Baptist should have missions to deal with these folks, but their own churches are struggling to deal with their own internal abuses because they themselves reject Matthew 18's method of church gov't. So the civil gov't has to deal with these groups instead: a pityful situation indeed.

Matthew 16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover.

This is what they all based this practice on when asked.

I remember the snake charmer churches getting a lot of coverage many years ago. I think they were Charismatic and shows luke Dateline NBC, etc, would film their services. During the services, the preachers and congregants would take turns passing around these dangerous snakes; all the while acting very odd and in a frenzy. Even though I wasn't saved, I felt like I was watching some sort of voodoo ritual as opposed to a display of the power of God. Some of the men would show their snake bite scarred arms and they always had snake venom kits close by which I thought was strange, even at the time, because I wondered how that figured in with their supposed faith that the snakes couldn't bite them. I forget what and where the verse is that they used to justify this and test God...something about Christ telling the apostles that they'll be able to tread on snakes, not be harmed, etc. I'm sure I have that all wrong so I should look it up.
