So, what did angels do in the Bible? They performed the specific job that God wanted them to do and then they left. They were always sent to ONLY do the will of God, not to make friends with humans.

Demons – what are they – who are they? Are they associated with Satan or are they figments of very fertile imaginations, brought to life through very real special effects and computer technology? Demons are real and are the minions of Satan – but when we think of minions, what do we think of?

Angels... We have such varied perceptions of them. Sometimes they are viewed as little cupids, flying around shooting people with their arrows of love. Sometimes we think they are white glowing winged creatures. Sometimes we think they take on human form and intervene in specific and dramatic ways and sometimes we think that they are our companions with whom we can communicate about anything from the majestic to the mundane… So, really, what, who are angels, what do they do and how do they do it? Can we, should we be seeing and talking with them?

Are angels in our lives as a tangible benefit to our spirituality?
