    circumstances in The Bible that specifically say that holy angels possess humans. But why should this phenomenon be troublesome? I know of no particular commandment prohibiting angels from possessing humans. Also, the Holy Spirit, although not an angel, is a distinct personal being who resides in millions of Christians. Is it possible that the two men are actually men whose bodies have been taken over by holy angels? I suggest this is a possibility. Apparently, these were not angels who simply…

    The people who settled Sodom were the descendants of Noah’s grandson, Canaan. Was the seed of evil that reached its fullness in Noah’s day before the flood also present in the seed of Ham’s son, Canaan? Is it also possible that Ham’s wife was with child when she entered the ark? If so, perhaps the seed of wickedness from Ham’s wife — like Noah’s wine — was given time to ferment. Whether through that birth or a repetition of demonic unions like those prior to the flood, wickedness would again…

    Why The Bible Tells Me So?

    In my opinion some of these interpretations are convincing such as the film “For the Bible Tells Me So” because instead of trying to just have one side mentioned, they mention the two sides. They use the whole bible and state the views of both sides. The only downside about the film is that they included stories about families but not all families are the same. Another source that I found convincing is the interpretation of Genesis 19 and how God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of their…

I just can’t deal with their lifestyle. The Bible says in Romans 1:26-27 26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for…
