NatGeo’s Snake Salvation is reality show that’s hard to turn away from. It follows the leaders of two churches in the south who abide by the signs listed in March 16:17-18. As well as laying on hands of the sick and casting out demons, the verses also say that if you believe in Jesus, you can drink poison and not get hurt, and handle serpents and not be harmed. On the show three people have been bitten and survived so far. Is their recovery the work of God, or are the snakes they’re handling dangerous, but not necessarily deadly?
