Question about your pet

I was reading about tarantulas on Wikipedia, & found that many people have them as pets. I was wondering if any of my brothers & sisters in Christ here at onlinebabptist had a tarantulas for their pet?

I understand that a spider has been know to live as long as 49 years.

And maybe some of you did not know that tarantulas were available as pets at many pet stores throughout America & will be headed to your local pet store to get your next pet. That just might be the Christmas present you want to get to give yourself.

Merry Christmas

My brother-in-law brought a tarantula home which he picked up while working in Texas. They kept it and now have a home for it in their house and they buy crickets for it to eat from a pet store.

That's disgusting. haha.

I'm VERY surprised my sister allowed him to keep that tarantula, and then to spend money on buying a home for it and keeping it inside their house.

I had a cousin who owned a python or boa and he also had a giant lizard. Never went to his house.

Several years ago I kept one for a year or two that I caught in south texas. A coworker currently keeps one at work too.

Its been said that the average person eats a few spiders during their life time while they'er sleeping.

Now, does that give you the heebie jeebies? :)

Does it make cold shivers go up your spine? :blink:

I hear they're high in protein, little extra protein will not harm a person, will it?

Seth, Did you let that pet tarantula crawl around on your shoulder, arms, hands?


No, for one thing I have never been into handling pets that are better observed and not touched, for another thing the species I had was not as docile as some species are and it very well might have bitten me in fear had I handled it.

They sure do not look I could hug them up close.

I suppose they would keep neighbors out that are nothing but a pest!

My brother-in-law lets his crawl on his hands, arms and around his neck and head.

Myself, if I see a big spider it's probably not going to live much longer.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.

      Why is it here in 2022 that truth is all of a sudden arrogance ?
