O, I forgot to put a direct link to the actual post this was meant for, lol.
Yeah, I like the snake because it reminds me of God’s unwavering justice and judgements. But, it was more meant for displaying the two polar opposites of Jesus’ calling to believers to be Wise and innocent at the same time. The snake is crafty and it’s power is in it’s mouth and the dove, while defenseless, is one of few animals that keep a single mate their entire life span. They also have literal tunnel vision so they are able to look in one direction.
