Photos: Pastor Preaching With Snake Rushed To The Hospital After Bitten By The Snake


A Kentucky pastor, Cody Coots was reportedly rushed to the hospital after he was bitten by a snake he was preaching with in his church and needed urgent medical intervention to save his life.

According to report, this is not the first time a snake handler has been bitten during a religious service in the Kentucky church, while it was even learnt that Coots’ father himself, Jamie Coots, was also bitten by a snake and died after refusing medical treatment but asked that his fate be left up to God’s will.


It was gathered that Cody also asked the same of his congregation that he told that if he is bitten by the snake, they should take him to the mountaintop for the Lord to decide whether he lives or dies, but luckily for him, a few parishioners, including a man named Big Cody, defied him and sought medical attention.

“Most people bit in the face are dead in five, ten minutes. I mean, his own daddy got bit in the hand and within seven minutes was dead.”


According to Big Cody, he still remembers when Jamie Coots, the pastor of the Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus’ Name church in Middlesboro, Kentucky, died at age of 42 after he was also bitten by a snake because the church is compelled by the Bible verse, Mark 16:18 that says:

“They will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them.”

The pastor Cody Coots while speaking after the snake bite said after this experience, he’s going to rethink the practice of snake handling in his religious services.
