Preacher dies after being bit by faith testing snake.

Quote:A West Virginia preacher famous for holding dangerous snakes during sermons has died after a rattlesnake bit him last weekend.

Mark Randall “Mack” Wolford, 44, was bitten during a Memorial Day gathering at park, the Washington Post reported.

“His birthday was Saturday, and all he wanted to do is get his brothers and sisters in church together,” his sister, Robin, told the newspaper.

Wolford was profiled in the Post last year for his unconventional ways of testing faith. He believed that the Bible says Christians must handle serpents to test their faith in God.

“Anybody can do it that believes it,” he told the Post last year. “Jesus said, ‘These signs shall follow them which believe.’ This is a sign to show people that God has the power.”

Lauren Pond, a freelance journalist who had recently worked with Wolford on a project, told the Bluefield Daily Telegraph that there were about 25 people in the park for Wolford’s ceremony.

She told the newspaper that Wolford was bitten in the thigh, but members of the congregation seemed unfazed.

“I don’t think anyone necessarily expected it, but they’ve dealt with it before so it’s not such a huge shock maybe,” she said.

He was eventually transported to Bluefield Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Serpent handling is controversial and illegal in many states. But according to a 2003 National Georgraphic report, it shows no signs of going away.

Guess his faith was tested and he was found lacking in the eyes of the lord. Probably kinda hot where he is now.

You don't test god by handling venomous snakes
The snakes are here to eat them rats
He should of been handling himself by healing peoples snakes inside
But ya know sometimes people learn the hard way
He will be back
Perhaps as a Pet Shop Owner?
