Christians - do you believe dead people become angels?

On what do you base this belief?

I had never heard of this belief until yesterday, and I'm wondering how prevalent it is.

  • I'm not Christian, however, i do not believe that a "living" soul can become an angel. An angel is a being who has never been human, just like and angel can not be born a human.

  • No. Angels and Humans are two completely different things. One cannot become the other.

  • I do. I believe angels are people before they are born, and after they pass.

    It's based on my specific LDS beliefs.

  • No
    Angels are beings of pure intellect, created by God

  • No. Angels are beings God created to serve him and they do not have free will. Humans were created like angels but we have free will. When you die you just either go to heaven or hell. But your spirit is human.

    Of course angels have free will. Satan is a fallen angel
