  • Christina Galay for verse 10
    I am a nutritionist preparing a presentation about how far off we have come from God 's plan of how we feed our bodies. I see the serpant as always evil in the bible....why is a lion sometimes portraying evil and sometimes portraying good? Or do I have it wrong.?
