What Does the Bible Say About the Nature and Power of Angelic Beings? – Christian Article

There are good reasons to believe in the existence of angelic beings, but our reasoning powers cannot reveal everything there is to know about these beings.

While we are sometimes tempted to focus on the material forces we can see, Paul reminded…

Is It Reasonable to Believe in Angelic Beings? – Christian Article

As a young man, I was intrigued by television and movie accounts of extra-terrestrial life. I was a huge Star Wars, Star Trek and E.T. fan. I’m not the only one interested in the possibility of non-human, intelligent, conscious beings in the universe. In fact, the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (S.E.T.I.)

Who Are the Archangels in the Bible? – Christian Article

This is a post by guest author Lindsay Kennedy. Given that only two angels are explicitly named in Scripture (Michael and Gabriel), it is unsurprising that they have garnered a lot of attention, speculation, and reverence throughout the centuries—in both religious tradition and popular media. Some even believe Michael was the pre-incarnate Jesus. With the help of Michael Heiser’s Angels, we will consider what the Bible says about Michael, archangels, and some other important angels. Michael and archangels Michael is…

“Let US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness?” – The Outlaw Bible Student – Christian Article

This article is short, but truly a study on the fringe of Christianity, something I am known to present. But it is just a study and examination of what a few others suppose. It is not suggested as doctrine or dogma — it is just something to make you think “outside of the box” and presented to stimulate your brain.
