I Ate Shergar: What_Would_Jimi_Do: "Did you ever notice how in the Bible, when ever God needed to punish someone, or make an example, or whenever God needed a killing, he sent an angel? Did you ever wonder what a creature like that must be like? A whole existence spent praising your God, but always with one wing dipped in blood. Would you ever really want to see an angel? "

"The ancient depictions of angels are more like traditional Eldritch Abominations than the fluffy cloud angels we see nowadays on Christmas decorations. The cherubim (yes, those cuties we all know today) have four faces - a lion on the right, an ox on the left, a human forward, and an eagle backward. They have four wings, with HANDS under the wings, their legs described as simply 'straight', and they have hooves. Also, the eyes. Everywhere. Even in the spaces between the eyes. Furthermore, 'Cherubim' means 'the living ones'. This means, in the eyes of the Hebrews, the most outstanding characteristic amongst the other orders of angels was that they are alive. Not so cute anymore, is it?  Contrast the Seraphim, basically cherubim with extra wings that are on fire, whose name means 'Fiery Ones', and the Ophanim that take this to the extreme, being wheels intersecting themselves while turning, also flying with six wings, somehow attached while they're turning, whose name means 'Wheels'. Remember, neither of these were understood to be alive by the Hebrews. Add to all this that God's guard for the Garden of Eden was a cherub armed with a flaming sword that turned in all directions.
Some interpretations of Seraphim hold that their divine fire radiates a light so ineffably potent that it will SEAR FROM EXISTENCE anything that approaches too close, including, presumably, lesser angels. That's still nothing compared to God Himself, for whom the Seraphim are the mundane equivalent of matches, basically shining as tokens of His glory.Seraphim are also described as dragon/serpent like (which led some experts to believe th ...

Ishkur: untaken_name: You love making assumptions. Just like everything else you ever post, your assumptions are wrong.

In what way?

In every way. Geez, can you not read, either?

dready zim: thorthor: If you ACTUALLY believe any of that shiat, other than in a comic book sense, you are an idiot. Plain and farking simple. Get a grip.

1/10 and only because you got some bites. It was plain the OP was talking objectively in an academic manner about what was written originally about angels, did not have a religious agenda.

Wait a bit for the real religious nuts to come in and try again.

And tell thorthor he's a stupid biatch for having a Swedish god name because lolreligion.
