The Evangelical Steve Irwin | My Life Online

21-year-old David Orin has gone viral by posting videos of him wrestling with pythons, willingly getting bitten on the face, and fearlessly flirting with venomous vipers. But, if you keep swiping, you will also see posts of David preaching the gospel, encouraging others to follow Christ, and condemning the sin of masturbation. As an amateur herper, a discipline rooted in biology & behavioral science, and a fiercely passionate fundamentalist Christian, David walks a fine line between two communities we often see as at odds. However, he feels like he can reconcile the two, with his love for God fueling his appreciation for all of His creations. There are plenty of Christian influencers out there, as well as plenty of herper accounts, but he’s the only one fusing the two, and people just can’t get enough. However, it’s not all snakes & sunshine - David is often criticized online for his lack of formal training and somewhat cavalier approach to the hobby.
In this episode of My Life Online, we’ll follow David as he balances being a 21-year-old pizza delivery guy with his often-dangerous mission of being the first viral herper-minister.

    • Our God is a God of mercy and love. We live in a fallen world and terrible things happen because of it. I'm sure that God in his all knowing and all mercyful ways has love and mercy and understanding for those taken to soon. We don't know everything, but we do know that God does the right thing.

  • This guy is the exact opposite of me. I absolutely hate snakes and insects and critters of all kind, and I'm an Atheist. He seems like a cool person and has a great sense of humor..but, he's also the disturbing kind of Christian. His instagram literally says "Slave to Christ". Is that not incredibly creepy? Religion is so fucking bonkers to me, especially this fanatical obsessive strain. You can't say he doesn't have balls though. EDIT: I just saw his comment about not supporting LGBTQ+, not such a cool person after all. The longer you watch the video, the less cool he gets. He seems to be struggling with his beliefs a lot. It feels like he's repressing a lot of deep feeling that conflict with his world view.

    • You can hate we Christians all you want. And that's ok because The Bible tells us that we will be hated. As a former atheist I can now tell you that if I didn't believe in God I would have no reason to get out of bed every morning. God saved me.

You are an egotistical self-centred attention seeker. I dare you to to come to Australia And take your pick of being bitten by only 3 snakes of your choice from the following list Eastern brown snake. (Pseudonaja textilis) ... Western brown snake. (Pseudonaja mengdeni) ... Mainland tiger snake. (Notechis scutatus) ... Inland taipan. (Oxyuranus microlepidotus) ... Coastal taipan. (Oxyuranus scutellatus) ... Mulga snake. (Pseudechis australis) ... Lowlands copperhead. (Austrelaps superbus) ... Small-eyed snake. Then you can meet your god fist hand
