Snake Salvation

In the hills of Appalachia, two Pentecostal pastors struggle to keep an over-100-year-old tradition alive: the practice of handling deadly snakes in church. They believe in a bible passage that suggests a poisonous snakebite will not harm them as long as they are anointed by God’s power. If they don’t practice the ritual of snake handling, they believe they are destined for hell.
