Mark 16:17-18 (King James Version)
17And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18They 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.
Okay so I am rereading the new testament and here's a puzzle. What exactly does this tell us?
I know that some who call themselves Christians do play with snakes and some have died. So if they misunderstood this verse then, what does it mean?
