Scripture tell us that these signs WILL follow (all) those who believe and are baptized. Why do we not see these signs following the majority of those professing to be ministers? Or most Christians? Mark 16: 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover." NKJV

i agree, esp with the last two sentences wholeheartedly
Yes, They definately do not follow anyone that is not baptized in the Holy Spirit. And not many of them actually have signs following all the time.
Scripture doesn't say the signs will follow every time or all the time; just says the signs will follow. Not trying to find a copout, just pointing out the wording.
I would agree and add a couple. Some are not even born again and many are hirelings, AT any rate NONE of these mentioned have any business "leading" or teaching God's flock. That is why the church has no power these days. Powerless ministry.

No that won't work. I have met a lot of the big boys in that false doctrine and they dont follow them either.
Ah well Celafoe, that's just too bad. If God loves people so much that he's going to wilfully torment them in fire forever, he's hardly going to grant signs to the living.
Interesting, but then I have seen most of the signs when I minister so must disagree
sorry i deleted your last comment by mistake,feel free to reenter
that is your opinion and does not line up with scriptures
Actually my opinion does line up with scripture, that's why I hold it.
