We do not want to lose focus on what I was defending or adhering too...
Do you?

So lets see what Mark 16: says

Vs. 15  And He said, "Go into all the world, and preach the Gospel to
every creature.
16  He that believes and is baptised (not with water but by the spirit)
shall be saved, but he that doesn't want to believe shall be
damned (a result of rejecting Jesus not a punishment of God).
17  And these shall be the SIGNS following them that believe:
In my Name shall they cast out devils, they shall speak in
new tongues, (Prayer language),

18 They shall take up serpants; and IF THEY drink any deadly
thing it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the
Sick and they shall recover...

Nope I don't see anywhere in those scriptures where it says:

They will dance with snakes into a frenzy and they
shall drink mason jars of poison while dancing and singing
and praising the Lord...

It is clear that the Lord was saying before his ascention that these signs
would FOLLOW them who believe...  Follow would also me come as a result
believing in Jesus....Casting out devils is a sign for them who believe...
and a new prayer language...If they take up a serpant...(if you read it
in context along with the following words (nd if they drink any deadly
thing it shall not hurt them) is clarly denoting happenstance...God's
devine protection and deliverance is spoken of...Not a frenzied

But like I said before if you want to dance with snakes and drink
poison...  :)  ..........  Gofert

... This is just a hobby. Perfection is not required. Fun is.
