Snake-Handling Pastor Bitten By Deadly Rattlesnake  | MY LIFE INSIDE: THE SNAKE CHURCH


CODY COOTS: These snakes – it’s a part of the Bible and I am going to put that before anybody. CODY COOTS: I have been bitten six times. I don’t think it’s crazy. It’s just a sign from God. BRITTANY COOTS: Snake handling, it is not for me. I don’t understand it. MAN: The purpose of our Church is to spread the name of Jesus Christ and get people saved. CODY COOTS: But if you have not been raised up in it and you look at it, you are going like, ‘Man! These people are crazy.’ CODY COOTS: I have seen a lot of people bitten, I have seen them suffer, I have seen them come close to death. CODY COOTS: I have seen it so much. I am going to pray for them. I am not going to quit doing it. CODY COOTS: The only difference between our Church and the other Churches is when you go to the Book of Mark 16 and 18; it tells you about the Bible signs. The sign is taking up serpents, drinking poison, casting out devils, speaking in tongues and laying hands on the sick and then recovering. CODY COOTS: I was raised up with these snakes, they don’t scare me, they don’t bother me. LINDA COOTS: We are a normal family. We love each other like normal families love each other. TRINA COOTS: Childhood was fun. Growing up I mean, it was different. Of course, people know who you were, ‘Oh, God! It’s some snake handlers. They are crazy.’ CODY COOTS: You know the only time I have ever had fear getting bitten by a snake is if I had seen in my life and I knew that I shouldn’t be even around the snake. BRITTANY COOTS: I never heard of the snake handling until I met my husband, Cody, and honestly I thought, ‘What am I getting myself in to?’ CODY COOTS: I love snakes. This is the Timber Rattler, which is what we got around Kentucky, beautiful snakes. When the Bible says serpents, if you look up the definition of a serpent, it means a poisonous snake. If they could bite you and never hurt you, it wouldn’t be a sign to the unbeliever. BRITTANY COOTS: Sometimes I do think that Cody puts the snakes before me and our kids. CODY COOTS: When I get bit, I stay at home, live or die. CODY COOTS: When the old man got bit by a Canebrake like this, he died within probably ten minutes. So it is a nasty bite. Praise you Jesus. TRINA COOTS: Daddy made a vow when he was younger that he wouldn’t go to the hospital if he ever got bit. LINDA COOTS: That night the service was great, the lord was moving, the music was really good, the serpent was being held and he got bit. TRINA COOTS: It reacted so quick, it got to the main artery and the vein. He died within five minutes. LINDA COOTS: I miss Jamie more than anything in this world. TRINA COOTS: It’s hard but I know where he is at and that makes it easier. LINDA COOTS: Immediately after Jamie’s death, Cody stepped in and stepped up and he walked right into Jamie’s shoes. He didn’t want to but he respected it and he did. CODY COOTS: People don’t realise how they need to get in Church, need to get saved because Jesus is coming back. The Bible plainly tells us that. And when it does come, there will be a time they will say, “You will either not worship God or we will cut your head off.” CODY COOTS: A lot of Churches they will judge you from where you’ve come from, what you have done. Well, we don’t blame and judge. We all got a background. We just teach them, ‘Jesus will forgive you. You got to stop what you are doing.’ CODY COOTS: Look at Big Cody Wynn. He was a big-time drug dealer. Well, now he is in Church. He don’t deal drugs no more. You got to stop your sin and God will forgive you. BIG CODY WYNN: You want to see why I call it God’s country? Who else could make something like it? BIG CODY WYNN: Snake hunting is important, when we want supplies for the Church. I like doing this because it’s fun. BIG CODY WYNN: The Bible said, “a believer is a doer” and if you are not walking according to the will of God 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. BRITTANY COOTS: I never have asked Cody to stop his belief because I know that he wouldn’t. CODY COOTS: My wife is always super scared that I am going to get bit and killed. Every time I go to Church and I take a snake out of the box, she is like, ‘I am worried that you are going to get bit and killed.’ And I just tell her, ‘When it’s my time to go. It’s my time to go. I am still going to do it. It’s not going to stop me.’ CODY COOTS: And she says, ‘Well, you need to think about your kids.’ Well, I do think about my kids but in the line of work I am in, being a Pastor, it’s God family job; God comes first, family comes second. BRITTANY COOTS: I do worry that Cody is going to leave this world like his dad did. BRITTANY COOTS: That is just a fear I just can’t overcome. CODY COOTS: When I go to Church, I like to dress nice. I like to dress a little different. Some people don’t believe pink and blue mixes too good but… CODY COOTS: I do believe that if you get bit and you have to suffer that there was something wrong; either you had something in your life, you didn’t move when God told you to, you went against what God said, I do believe that. I believe a good bite is when one latches on and you just die in five minutes and don’t suffer a bit. Because the bites I have suffered, I have been swelled up so big, you couldn’t tell who I was from snakebites and every time it’s because I should have waited on the voice of God. CODY COOTS: I believe that one day there is going to be fire rain down from heaven. It’s going to burn this whole earth. The Bible plainly says, ‘Heaven and earth is going to pass away but there will be a new earth and a new heaven.’ I believe once you go, you are there for eternal. I am looking forward to when I go to meet my Maker. CODY COOTS: But I am happy, with my wife and my kids is what makes me happy. BRITTANY COOTS: If something happened to Cody, my kids will be heartbroken. It is a constant worry; something that you love so much can be taken from you. You know just like that. CODY COOTS: If you know that you are going to heaven and you know you ain’t got no sins in your life, it’s a good time to die. CODY COOTS: Ready for Church.

100 thoughts on “Snake-Handling Pastor Bitten By Deadly Rattlesnake | MY LIFE INSIDE: THE SNAKE CHURCH

  1. Katrina Coots (3:44 and on) has since passed away. She died at 26 when she was a passenger in a car with another woman, going home from church. The car went off the side of the road and hit a guard rail, bounced into the other lane, and they were hit by an SUV. She died at the scene. So sad. She was just a little girl when she walked up to the piano and began to play. She had never had a lesson. R.I.P., Trina.

  2. If jesus walked in the doors of that "church " I would be impressed if the sermon would continue in such a manner. Good grief, I don't believe the spirit would reside during those "sermons" good grief.

  3. There are no golden rules to handle any beast . One day, sooner or later a beast will always prove to be a beast .
    We have seen it happens with pets killing their owners unexpectedly.

  4. Do not tempt the Lord. Scaring the snakes with loud noise and jerking them around, expect injury and death. Those snakes are defending themselves, they’re scared so they are going to bite. Read the New Testament in context from beginning to the end and God will bless your life, without fear.

  5. ** Meanwhile, in Kentucky **
    Pink suit dude:
    “imma perform miracles with this snake!”
    Snake:
    “And I’m about to end this man’s whole career”

  6. Well, he had to go and ruin the pink suit. Lol, All a bunch of hills got eyes meets the wrong turn, family values. The snakes don't scare me, it's the fxxking people crazy mother fuckers.

  7. You guys have a real shitty god if it’s supposed to come before your family, even if that means getting bit by a snake and never seeing your family again.

  8. Your a bunch of idiots you need too read the bible and understand what its saying it does not any where inn my bible tell you too handle snakes . You need too get your Priorities stright . And if you think god told u too handle snakes you need too bee bitten idiot

  9. No buddy it’s not God family job it’s God family and ministry. Your relationship with God is first your ministry is different than your relationship. Ministry is helping others with their relationship with God. If your house isn’t in order and your priorities are not in order your ministry won’t be taken seriously.

  10. Ok first off. A rattle snake is VENOMOUS not poisonous. And second off, why the hell are untrained hillbillies handling these dangerous snakes? They're fricking wipping them around instead of holding them carefully and with respect. Rattlesnakes are very sweet and docile when handled correctly. These guys are dumbasses

  11. This is an injustice against the animals. Those snakes don't want to go to church. Still, it seems to me these people are really trusting God, so I'm not sure why other Christians (with their "tongues" and "healing revival" services) think this is all that far out. Snake handling is in the New Testament.

  12. Crystal Meth, moonshine, 100% pure hillbilly white trash…. Oh yeah and deadly venemous snakes? What's not to love. Ah to be a white kentuckian Christian.

  13. No offense but it’s people like this who make Christians look like idiots and yes I’m a Christian but not like these people lol

  14. Clearly you worship the Snake as your Hod but not the God of Abrham and Jacob. Lord have mercy upon you lot. My heart cries for the whale congregation very sad and strenge times.

  15. I like to dress good🤣🤣🤣🤣 what the hell why the hell who the hell allow the damn snake inside a church and who in the hell is a Ted deem this church that is so freaking hilarious it would ever work for you God never said you have to be smart to get to heaven you just got to have faith and believe and try your best to live according to the word

  16. how is this for real they are crazy they make up what they think bible is telling them into some strange ways yes all are allowed to worship the lord but snakes why mess with deadly snakes

  17. serpents meaning The serpent was a symbol of evil power and chaos from the underworld as well as a symbol of fertility, life and healing. נחש Nāḥāš, Hebrew for "snake", is also associated with divination, including the verb form meaning "to practice divination or fortune-telling".

  18. Don't take them to the hospital after they've been bitten…its gods will that they die if they die 👀😨😱😫😭😂

  19. Serpent is possessed by demon in the bible..he is cursed by God himself. .so why use the serpent????we can be truthful to God without any using worldly things….GOD SHOWED YOU SNAKES SHOULDNT BE PRAISED..He will bite you..THIS IS THE NOISIEST WORSHIPPERS IVE KNOWN..AND THEY HAVE ROCK N ROLL

  20. NEVER CREATE A DOCTRINE BASED ON ONE SCRIPTURE !!!!! Scripture must support scripture….. Paul was bit by a snake but he didn’t go looking for a snake to handle …… false doctrine here folks

  21. if scripture is interpreted correctly it is accidental ingestion of poison or handling of deadly serpents……you are tempting the lord god..

  22. Jesus neither handled deadly serpents nor jumped around like a mentally disturbed person to attract attention he drew crowds with his words and actions

  23. Somebody already died and they still want to handle the snakes in a place where they supposedly call it a church? For the love of the heavens! This is beyond crazy.

  24. Of course God comes first but at the same time pastor you have a wife and kids dont risk your life over getting bit by snakes . Those snakes need to stay in the wilderness were they belong he is walking in danger zone . I don't think God is pleased with that

  25. The reason the snake bit him is because he was swinging it around like a damn baseball bat. The snake bit him in defense. This is animal abuse and I hope someone has stepped in and saved those animals.

  26. The irony in this is that there may not actually be a god or gods. But, I've never heard a Christian utter those words. More likely, the bible was written by goat herders to entertain other goat herders during those long and cold Arabian nights. If the bible really was of any worth, it would mention to leave carpet vipers and elapids alone or where you find them, but certainly not in a worship service. I call this behavior suicide by Jesus. Have at it.

  27. Lack of Knowledge

    Matthew 4:

    5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,

    6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

    7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
