I’ve studied a bit on how the descriptions of angels we find in the Bible were influenced by other ancient near east religions, Zoroatrianism, and Kabbalah mysticism. That doesn’t necessarily make them not real, but it does make you wonder. And to be honest, the idea of God needing messengers rather than just talking to people himself doesn’t sound like a God who likes interacting in an incarnational way (ie – Jesus). But I can’t deny that the world is a weird place and weird spiritual things seem to happen sometimes. Should we just be agnostic about angels because the universe is weird? What are your thoughts?
