God’s Argument Against Evolution. Follow Up

Q. Reading your study on God’s Argument Against Evolution, you said, ” Then Satan introduced another breed into the equation and soon fallen angels were breeding with human women to produce a hybrid race called nephilim.” This brings forth my question. If all angels are male and there are no female angels, why did God give the male angels genitalia and the ability to reproduce? You once said there is no sex in Heaven so why then could the fallen angels have sex and reproduce?

A. Genesis 6:1-4 clearly describes angels (sons of God) and humans intermarrying and having offspring called nephilim. So the question is, how did they do that? In Jude 1:6 we get the answer. It says these angels kept not their first estate (the Greek word means beginning or origin) and left their own habitation (this Greek word refers to the dwelling place of their spirit). It means they ceased being the entity they originally were created to be and became a different entity.

Putting 2 and 2 together we can see that they left their heavenly bodies and took on human bodies, something angels have the capability of doing in order to become visible to mankind. (In Judges 13 the parents of Samson repeatedly referred to the angel of the Lord as a “man of God”. Hebrew 13:2 tells us some people who have been kind to strangers have actually entertained angels without knowing it.) Having human bodies gave them the ability to have sex with human women. This was an act that so angered the Lord that He rounded them up and put them in chains to be held for judgment.

But the damage was done, and a hybrid race was introduced into the world.
