There are Infinite reasons to be an Angel of God. I will list 5:

1) Love
2) Heaven
3) Ecstasy
4) Security
5) Interaction

Please list 1 or more (up to 5) reasons to be an Angel. Also, if you are the type, list reasons why not to be Angel of God. I cannot think of any reason not to be an Angel of God.

Humans know of Angels and frequently of an Angelic Hierarchy. Is there a Hierarchy in Heaven above Angels that is only known by God and this Hierarchy?

Here is a song by 'Rammstein' (first in the original German and then translated):


ENGEL
Wer zu Lebzeit gut auf Erden
wird nach dem Tod ein Engel werden
den Blick gen Himmel fragst du dann
warum man sie nicht sehen kann
Erst wenn die Wolken schlafengehn
kann man uns am Himmel sehn
wir haben Angst und sind allein
Gott weiß ich will kein Engel sein
Sie leben hinterm Sonnenschein
getrennt von uns unendlich weit
sie müssen sich an Sterne krallen (ganz fest)
damit sie nicht vom Himmel fallen
Erst wenn die Wolken schlafengehn
kann man uns am Himmel sehn
wir haben Angst und sind allein
Gott weiß ich will kein Engel sein
Erst wenn die Wolken schlafengehn
kann man uns am Himmel sehn
wir haben Angst und sind allein
Gott weiß ich will kein Engel sein

Translation:

ANGEL
Who in their lifetime is good on Earth
will become an angel after death
you look to the sky and ask
why can't you see them
Only once the clouds have gone to sleep
can you see us in the sky
we are afraid and alone
God knows I don't want to be an angel
They live behind the sunshine
separated from us, infinitely far
they must cling to the stars (very tightly)
so they don't fall from the sky
Only once the clouds have gone to sleep
can you see us in the sky
we are afraid and alone
God knows I don't want to be an angel
Only once the clouds have gone to sleep
can you see us in the sky
we are afraid and alone
God knows I don't want to be an angel

What are you asking, if people should desire to be a literal angel or if people should do good acts and be nice to others?

People should do great acts and be kind to others for its own sake; that is, independent of any title that might be accorded them. Angels, however, can be an inspirational and motivating factor for us to be the best that we can possibly be. The Archangel Michael has been inspiring to me as I have no tolerance for evil except for its reformation into something good and great.

queenannie38, what do you want to be in the Afterlife, if not an Angel? Would you say a servant of God without a title?

It appears that you believe that people can become angels after they die. That is not what happens. People who have received Christ as Savior will be changed to be incorruptible. God calls believers saints, kings and priests. I believe we have talked about this before. I believe you really want to know God but you have some unbiblical ideas that you believe in. To continue to believe these false ideas will keep you from really knowing and following God.

Have you ever , on purpose, made a willing confession of faith in Jesus Christ as the only way to be forgiven of your sins?

GT - what is 'after' life? If there is no death, then there is only life!

I already am.

queenannie38, I have come to expect creative and fresh perspectives from you; take it as a compliment. Are you a mystic? Do you communicate with the "dead"?

There is only ONE reason not to become an angel of god, since god/gods do not exist then there would be no reason to become an 'angel' (a further non existant being).
So what would be the purpose of being a 'non existant being' to a 'non existant being'?????

However, if I lived in 'your world', even then I would not wish to be an agent for your deity as I find christianity a very bad religion and your god to be arrogant,childish,vengefull ..... blah blah... jealous etc.

So you can keep your gods and angels for yourself as I have no need for either.

Of which God/dess do you speak?

I personally am proud to claim The Holy Family.

That being God, Goddess , And Son and Daughter.

I am also proud to say that what ever you believe, I may not believe as
you do, but I am willing to defend your right to believe as you wish. Even
with my life.


Are you willing to do the same?

Thank you - that is a very nice way of saying i am eccentric!
(i know this and so it's not offensive)


Are you a mystic?

How do you define 'mystic,' GT?


Do you communicate with the "dead"?

How do you define 'dead?'

The only 'dead' people i communicate with (or at least try to, that is) are those that appear 'living,' i.e. they are animated and such people fill this world...there are really no other 'dead' people....either you are alive (awake) or dead (asleep).

Well you keep all you got, and we'll keep our "non-existance". And when you find yourself running from the light, remember this:

nothing moves faster than light. And, we'll have our "non-existant" nothings moving faster than the light you can't run away from fast enough. So, according to science, having "nothing" sure seems to be the fastest way to travel. Doubt it? Then take all you have to the airport, and i'll take nothing. We'll see who gets on board first.



So what would be the purpose of being a 'non existant being' to a 'non existant being'?????


I'd answer this question, but there is no basis for comparison in your mind, as you have no experience to hold it up to for comparison, so fortunately for you, you aren't capable of percieving the answer.



However, if I lived in 'your world',


You lack the empathy to comprehend GreatTechs world. But, he does not lack the empathy to comprehend yours.



even then I would not wish to be an agent for your deity as I find christianity a very bad religion and your god to be arrogant,childish,vengefull ..... blah blah... jealous etc.


ONE MORE TIME, JUST SO EVERYONE KNOWS HOW YOU FEEL:

how can you find any of those attributes you listed without having found them?

Thanks.

Sorry GreatTech. I only have one reason right now:

1) It's the right thing to do.

ET you can keep your god and all his little minions as even if it did exist I still wouldnt want to be associated with your god.

No amount of your feeble explanations will ever convince me that you know the truth and that what you believe IS the truth.




However, if I lived in 'your world',


You lack the empathy to comprehend GreatTechs world. But, he does not lack the empathy to comprehend yours.
Do you think you know me or something????? I have no empathy LOL HA HA HA LOL - just not for the religious !!!

By using the same information book (BIBLE) that you use to confirm your beliefs, I use to confirm mine.
