Also, later in the book of 2nd Kings, the serpent is destroyed by Hezekiah because the Israelites began to worship the snake, which displeased the Lord. lol they named it Nehushtan and started sacrificing to it.

. Also its as if God is the Bronze snake on that pole, we are all bitten by sin.. and that if we keep our eyes fixed on him, we will live.

be encouraged.

no, in order to look upon the snake and be healed u would have clearly needed to beleive in the healing virtue of it or have "faith" in the action in itslef, yes it was just one of the many clear biblical contradictions.

But Exodus 20:4 says, You shall not make an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.



I'm pretty sure this includes snakes :)

Expertise

Do you know that unless you are born of water and Spirit you cannot get into heaven? Do you know that there is no passage in the Bible that asks you to "pray Jesus into your heart" to be saved? I have volunteered in the Jehovah`s Witness section for years (check my ratings out there), but feel it is time to branch out. Friendly discussions only! Be prepared to open your Bible!

Experience

My "expertise" if one could say that is mainly with Jehovah's Witnesses, Trinity, and the diety of Jesus. However, I am also a born-again Christian and dabble with the Greek langauge. Not an expert, but I look forward to going to heaven.
