    Thanks to Shav and Frogstomp for pointing this out.

    Mark 16:17-18

    16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

    16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

    How many of you who claim to be believers have done these things?

    Want to run this scientifically? We can have a "believer" drink poison and then give them an AIDS patient to cure. The other indicators are not so easy to experiment with it seems to me. Maybe have some serpents available...this implies the snake is poisonous right?

    What will it prove ? -"Goes towards the credibility of the witness , your honor." - as they say on Law and Order all the time .

    Here's my test as to whether a xtian is real or not : Throw him to a lion . If he goes "BBBWWAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!" , and runs then he's not for real . If he prays while being eaten , then he's real .

    This is a highly scientific test , my man . I'll believe what the test tells me after a large enough sample group has been run through .

    To be truely accurate you'd have to test every single one.

    Personally, I'm just as happy to wait on Jesus to separate the
    sheep from the goats, that day is coming. What you are suggesting
    here can be faked.

    Certainly a test of this sort is flawed. Personally, I have never witnessed something I would call a miracle. I've been in plenty of situations where people believed that a miracle was being performed (I even tried to believe it myself.). But I have never witnessed any of the things Thousand mentions, and I know of no one that I can really trust that has either.

    That is my point here it doesn't matter, even if you did trust someone
    here, would you after they said they have been apart of or witnessed
    something like that?

    Depends on whether their lithium intake had been recently monitored by a certified mental health professional or not .
