Has anyone ever seen angels?
What did they teach you?
Has anyone had any life changing experiences with inherently good entities?
how do you know one is really an angel or a demon with an angelic cloak? Even Lucifer/Satan can pretend to be an angel...how are we to honestly know the difference?
Satan can be 99% truthful, but that 1% of lies can dupe you forever into hell.
I had a weird experience with an ex gf before involving a guardian angel. We were drinking a bit one evening, when her attitude suddenly changed. She claimed to be her guardian angel Ashelia, and when I asked where she was if they were using the body, and she pointed near a closet in my brothers room. the interactions were strange though, marvelling at things we take for granted. I was smoking a cig when Ashelia was asking what I was doing, I told her "smoking" and she asked if she could try. I was weirded out at this point, if she had drank that much, there was no way she could be this coordinated. No slurred speach or anything, I handed her a smoke and she lit it up. She smiled and said "it reminds me of the clouds in heaven" when I told her smoking is bad for people she seemed generally concerned, like she felt guilty that she smoked while using my ex gfs body. we had her try some of my ex gfs butterfinger, she was quite delighted with our food. then she wanted me to tell something to my ex gf, but I could never remember it because I drank as well. But still an odd experience. When my ex gf woke up, she complained about someone eating part of her butterfinger. that's about the weirdest experience I may have had with a guardian angel, but it may have been booze. idk.
Seen, no. Possessed by, yes. They instantly healed me of a shoulder injury. Then they tried to convince me I'm some kind of demon prince not in good standing with the family. Called me the black sheep. Told me they can't let me die because I'm not welcomed on the other side. Either way, they helped me out and identified themselves with the sign of the cross, but they seemed pretty shady.
I was about to make a thread like this
what do you picture angels to look like? are they humanoid or animal? beautiful or ugly?
so what about fallen angels? do they have the same luxury?
A couple of months ago I woke up early in the morning. There was this shiny light ball hoovering in my room. I was laying in bed, as I open my eyes and look at it the first thought that came to mind was "It's an angel, it's all good." Then I shut my eyes and fell asleep again. I don't know if this was a dream or not. ALL the stuff in my room was at the right place, everything seemed "normal" except for the orb/light ball. I don't dream very often anyway. It was wierd, I don't usualy think about angels and such. But it was like I knew it was an angel, and that I had nothing to fear.
Because I do have it, via being well educated. We exist with free will so that following God is a meaningful choice. Depriving us of free will is antithetical to that. Besides, they wouldn't have to possess you to heal you, and even if they did they would just prevent you from being injured in the first place.
No, you don't. Your education is based on what other people believe, i.e. what they think they know. None of what you think you know is necessarily true. Sure, maybe they didn't have to possess me, but they did. Sure, they could've prevented the injury, but then they wouldn't have healed me and I never would've believed in any of this shit, which I believe was the primary point.
tl;dr, are we talking about paradise lost angels or generic higher beings serving an even higher power
so lets go for literature here, would the divine comedy be factual as in how heaven, hell and purgatory are set up?
>Sure, maybe they didn't have to possess me, but they did.
I will make this very simple. There are three possibilities.
> You're roleplaying
> The entity that possessed you was not an angel
> You are using the term possession incorrectly
> I supposedly got possessed by an angel once for a small period of time, therefore I know more about angels than the cumulative theologians that have lived since the religion began.
What are you talking about? If anyone's making shit up it would be me, which I'm not, but it doesn't matter. I wouldn't believe me, and that's where it ends. I hate rp fags. I'm probably the only person on /x/ who actually believes this shit. Oh, well.
naw, you're not alone. even though most of these thereads are 90% rps, there has to be some greater force we have yet to observe. I think it's on the other end of black holes though
fine, maybe being exist beyond our perceived optics, the human eye has 3 cones and 4 rods that pick up light and color, the mantis shrimp has like 20 something and can see spectrums we can't even imagine, what if the higher energies exist there?
I never got why Angels are considered inherently good.
They're supposed to be these perfect beings looking out for us?
How the hell am I supposed to relate to something perfect flawed as I am?
Anything that seems perfect usually isn't and anything that claims to be perfect is untrustworthy in my opinion.
