I was using the dictionary definition: a Protestant movement emphasizing the literal infallibility of the Bible.

But you are right, there does seem to be some negative connotations what with the speaking in tongues and handling snakes.

...speaking in tongues and handling snakes...

Wow - if you think those are "odd", then holding to a "creator of the universe" or a "raiser of the dead" must be off the charts - right?

As for speaking in tongues or handling snakes, in my view they are just an exploration of various people’s faith.

Of course when the snake bites the handler one has to wonder what message that sends..:>)
