Snake-Handling Pastor Wins Tennessee Legal Battle

Pastor Andrew Hamblin of Tabernacle Church of God in LaFollette, Tenn., was exonerated by a grand jury Wednesday, clearing him of charges related to the possession of illegal deadly snakes deemed by authorities to be dangerous to the public.

Mark 16:18 they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it shall not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."---NASB
