  • I believe she is refering to the Nephilim...

    They were the sons of Angels... And if you have a bible, they are in it!

  • My son has a friend who is a giant and he isn't horrid, in fact he's quite nice.

  • If you read the visual descriptions of the angels, they really don't sound "beautiful" ... cherubim, for example, have four faces - one in each direction; one is a lion's face, one is a human face, etc. Which kind of sounds monstrous if it manifests in flesh. They may be angelic perfection, but that doesn't necessarily mean they are aesthetically pleasing to the human eye.

    Since they were not permitted by God to mate with the humans, perhaps their offspring was cursed? Or perhaps so large and physically overpowering that they seemed terrifying. (Interestingly, many religions have a mythology surrounding a race of giants.)

    The Nephilim were conceived through sexual union, just like human offspring....AFAIK, it is not Christian belief that God literally mated with Mary - He impregnated her miraculously, through His Spirit. I think that therein lies the difference.

    It's a great question!

  • The Bible makes it clear that these particular giants, conceived of male angels and mortal women, were abominations. It's not that extremely tall, large people are inherently horrid... just that the Nephilim of Jewish and Christian tradition WERE. Refer to the verses shared by sabrinaMbowen.

  • because the angels sinned and took a life form and had relations with earthly woman, GODS son was perfect and would never do anything to hurt his FATHER.

  • God is perfect and sinless.

    The angels I would venture to believe they were not God's angels but the fallen angels that mated with the women.
