My Life Inside The Snake Church Part 1

SUBSCRIBE to Barcroft TV: A NEW documentary has captured the startling moment a controversial American pastor is bitten by a deadly snake during a service. Cody Coots is the pastor at the Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus’ Name church in Middlesboro, Kentucky - one of America’s only remaining snake-handling churches. The dangerous ritual had already cost the Pentecostal church its previous pastor, Cody’s father Jamie Coots, 42, after he was bitten by a rattlesnake and killed in 2014. And the shocking footage shows Cody Coots - his shirt splattered in blood - collapsing and being helped from his altar as the snake’s potentially lethal poison begins to take hold. The church’s story is told in My Life Inside: The Snake Church, the first film in a new series from Barcroft TV which gains unprecedented access to people who’ve chosen to live outside the norms of modern mainstream society.

PapaSMOrc : As a snake owner myself, i feel so bad for these snakes. They are still innocent animals and you are commiting animal abuse. The amount of mistreatment here is astounding. Of course the snakes reaction to you swinging it around like a baseball bat is gonna be volatile. Dropping a snake from standing height can be fatal since they dont have legs to break their fall. They dont feel secure and think they are going to fall and die. You should always be supporting 2 different spots on the snakes body. These people are insane, and I hope the snakes are taken from them and released back into the wild.

patrick vandyke : God gave us "common sense" also. Use it!!

John Thomas : This is what happens when moonshiners attend church

SOBER OTIS : 3:06 *Cody: "When I get bit I stay home. Live or die !"* *Fast forward: Cody gets bit and rushes to the hospital.* 😂 What happened to all that faith ?? GTFOH

gtgrnhuh1 : What in the trailer park hell is going on?

joshua hymer : “We are a normal family” .........Pass me that Rattlesnake....

Matt Gonzalez : 😂😂😂😂😂😂proof natural selection is 100% real by way of religious fanatics

gladto begone : "Thou shall not put the Lord thy God to a foolish test"

Joe Momma : Supposed to be an experienced snake handler. Says they're poisonous instead of venomous.

Antiluddite : Scenes from a mental institution without staff.

p boss : Mental illness at its finest. The mom said they are a normal family 😂😂😂😂😂

richie wheeler : It’s crazy how passionate they are about something so foolish.

Elf Owl : Seems like a cult to me.

Camaronsmith Carlos : Smokeing meth before church lol

Rachel R : So the dad died within 5-10 mins of being bitten and they are still doing this? At this point if they die they deserve it. Bunch of idiots. That's like giving a child a loaded gun and wondering why the child is dead.

Professional Commenter : If you live by the snake you will die by the snake. This is animal abuse plain and simple. I want to know where in the Bible it talks about a snake in the box.

Sizzla Kalonji : Next service try a Black Mamba..

Donna Frank : Just tell people to drink the Kool-Aid ain't no different than Jim Jones

horticasey : The immediate regret on his face is priceless

chigasaki06 : 1. He messes with snakes but don't know that they're venomous and not poisonous. 2. This is what happens when people pick verses from the Bible out of context to serve their own stupid purpose. the Bible clearly states that we must not test God. In other words, we should not purposely put ourselves in dangerous situations to force God's hand. That in itself is sinful.

Lamont : “ the lord would protect me from you snake” Snake: ever been to the ER.

Petyr Baelish : Thank ya'll for com'n to the snake church. Dang, it been a great service, yeee-haaaww! Thanks to Peggy-sue on the drums and Billy-Bob on the geee-tar. Now lemme jus put dis serpent back in the bo... OUCH. He bit me. Oh lord, the snake bit me mamma. Dang, it be a sign from up aboooove. Praise be to Jesus. I can feel ma throat cord thing tightening up...

Ben Velthuysen : Mad, Ungodly Cult. They are more concentrated on the snakes rather than on the Word of god. Are they using the snakes as a form of God's Holy Spirit? This is really, really blasphemous. So sad, lost souls. Snakes come first, God comes second.

Garp Funkel : There's a lot of death and darkness around this church. Fire. Snakes. Screaming about evil. There's no sense of peace at all.

Erika foxx : They all idiots. 😁. Amen. 😁

Jim Elliott : They'd think Australia was heaven - until the entire congregation was wiped out in a month or two.

Donna Frank : I believe in Jesus I don't need to try to tempt the Lord


Live Free : And they say people in Alabama are Hicks.

Jay Jay : This is a cult

slickrr69 : WoW and he really thinks he is worshiping God.? That Church needs to repent. They are worshiping the snakes (which is Satan) WOW.

Brody Wolverine : God won’t heel you from poisonous venom that’s why he gave us a thing called common sense

Charles Rushing : White man have you lost yo bologna smelling mind😂😂😂😂 *The wayans bros

Johnny Brown : Well if this dont beat all I've ever seen. That is the farthest thing from a church service I've ever seen. He said and I quote if you get bit it's because you have sin inside you. That ole rolling rock bottle on fire yelling screaming jumping around then bam bit on the head😂😂😂😂 funniest thing I've seen today

buckle.mp3 : 1:48 *”We are a normal family”* -Are you sure bout that?-

isray 14 : I did what you all did, continue to watch till the snake bit someone lol.

justin babcock : We must not put Christ to the test, as some of them did and were destroyed by serpents, 1 Corinthians 10:9 ESV

Sith Lord Lawrin : Awwww poor thing... Are they ok? Are the snakes ok?

King Quency : The Bible said, "Ain't nobody got time for dat."

TacoS WoRLd : What a bunch of fruit loops

mordantkitten : "...and you get a serpent out of the box and it bites you and you lay and suffer for hours on end, there's more than likely something wrong in your life." ya think?

Gregg Roach : These are the consequences of a shallow gene pool

Crystal Fyffe : A sign from God to not play with rattlesnakes, you Kentuckians are all screwed in the head.

Deepak K : This is beyond insanity. This buffon is not just risking his life, but putting everyone else around him in harm's way

Brynn Hill : It's like a church from hell in my opinion.

Jon longdong : Luke 4:9-12And he(Satan) brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God ,cast thyself down from hence: 10 For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee 11 And in their hands shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. 12 And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, do not tempt the Lord thy God. Why are you putting God to the test?

Nazgul OvHell : Serpent cults have existed for millennia not 100 years

Jorge Reyes : The old guy at 5:17 through 5:20 looks like hes getting possessed lol 😂😆
