Check it out: CNN today, sorry I don't know how to link.
SUNBURY, Pennsylvania (AP) -- A woman accused of holding police at bay by brandishing poisonous snakes was sentenced to house arrest and probation.

"I just wasn't in the right frame of mind that night," said Terry Jackson, 36, at her sentencing Monday.

Officers were trying to prevent the despondent woman from harming herself with a hunting knife when the confrontation took place October 25, police said.

Jackson picked up two western diamondback rattlesnakes, a pigmy rattlesnake and two copperheads to try to keep police from taking her into custody, authorities said.

Jackson, who was raising the snakes for laboratories, received several bites during the standoff and was taken to a hospital after police subdued her with a stun gun.

The snakes were later donated to a zoo in Hershey.

Jackson pleaded no contest in March to one count of reckless endangerment. She was sentenced to two years' probation and will spend the first six months of her sentence under house arrest. She must also receive drug and alcohol counseling.

She said she was beset by alcohol abuse and family problems and had wanted to kill herself.

This article used to have a great picture of a guy (now deceased from snakebite) holding up a huge timber rattlesnake, but it seems to have disappeared.
What is interesting is the bible says tread, not pick up. I have tread on several rattle snakes, usually it's during the opening days of deer season because it is still warm. I guess I don't have much faith because I where 24" snake boots until the first hard frost. :shock: :shock: :shock:
As my pastor say's "that's ignorance gone to seed".

or your "pastor" (whatever that is)
here we go again
Ramm,
I am not going to explain or have any rebutle to any one on this subject. I placed the article in this way so everybody could at the least have fun with the idea of brandishing a snake is illegal. I hope no one has been offended at this because if you read the article, no snakes where hurt during this altercation. :rotfl: :lol:

No, it says they shall "take up." Mark 16:18, but that has no application to you or your "pastor" (whatever that is) or to the modern age.

It's in the link . . .[/quote:2ski2v64]

Malum,
I certainly don't want to offend you by this statement but are you catholic or a denomination that do not have clergy as pastors?
pas·tor (păs'tər)
n.
A Christian minister or priest having spiritual charge over a congregation or other group.
A layperson having spiritual charge over a person or group.
A shepherd.

My pastor happens to be my best friend that I've known for many years. But out of respect for his position at our church he is my pastor.

Before this gets out of control in the religious arguments I want to leave it alone.

*Disclaimer:
This is not the opinion of anyone in particular on this website.
I have done all I can do here to prevent this thing from getting out of control.

Ok, Cool!

Malum Prohibitum said:
As to my particular religion, into which you inquired, it is important to be able to identify the church of the New Testament.
Like I said, I didn't want to sound offensive about this. I guess that the church I attend calls our undershepheard, Pastor. We are baptist based with a little pentecostle mix. So I guess we're bapticostle. :lol: :lol:
No matter how you want to say it, it's still ignorance gone to seed(refering to the original article).

As far as snaking handling goes, I believe th good LORD gives us common sense too.
The problem is with so many sincere religious people out there teaching that miracles are something ocurring in the modern day. They are sincere, but misguided, and have never really chosen (most of them anyway) to devote any serious time to studying what God's word has to say on the subject.

That is why the title of that article was Sincere But Wrong: Dead Wrong. :cry:
Malum,
I don't want to start another debate here, but could you explain this statement? Or maybe I am looking at this and you didn't write it.
If you would rather PM to me that is fine. :-k

What is your definition of a miracle?
If it was not answered sufficiently back on page 2, please let me know, and I will try again.

Miracles in the modern day? Sure. Let me ask you a question first. This is not biblically based, but merely your observation. Ever seen anybody raised form the dead? How about an ear instantaneously re-attached. Ever see any non-disputable miracle? The kind that everybody present would affirm was miraculous and nobody would deny?

The miracles Jesus did were of that sort. Even his enemies did not deny the miracles, but attributed them to Satan rather than God.

(1) Ever see any like that?

(2) What is the purpose of a miracle in the New Testament?


That first question is simple common sense, which, I assume you affirm God wants you to use.

The second question will begin to get us into the biblical portion of answering your question . . .

I fully understand where you are coming from now.
Thanks,
