This is probably the most interesting answer.

I like your take on this. I have never met a person who has never been sick. If you took this literally that would mean nobody I have ever met anyone who believes and has been baptized. That would mean every person I ever met is condemned.
It is not talking about intentionally handling or drinking which would be against scripture, it is talking about in the course of ministering the Gospel if you are poisoned as happens in some foreign countries or bitten while doing same.
How in the world did you come up with that from the context of this scripture? That verse is very controversial, this is why we have snake handlers here in the South.
proper understanding of scripture and putting it together as it is. Check the example for snakebite of Paul in in acts. Also personal experience of God's protection while ministering His Word
It happened to Paul, didn't it? The viper bit him and the people expected him to fall down dead, but nothing happened. It is the same today when we have faith.
