Bad Angels

Throughout history, bad angels are associated with fire. Satan and his followers are said to live in Hell, which is a place of fire. Bad angels also have different appearance from good angels.

Some Christians, do not believe that angels, good or bad, escort souls to Heaven or Hell after death. They believe that souls must wait to go anywhere apart from their human body until final Judgment Day, when angels awaken the dead and judge whether each person is worthy of Heaven.

Ultimately, a belief in angels and all things related to angels can be based only on faith.

Satan is often depicted in artwork with red skin, red horns, and a red forked tail. The fork is probably meant so suggest a connection between Satan and snakes which have forked tongues. Satan’s wings, when they are depicted, are those of a bat or dragon, two creatures-one real, one imaginary.

Alternatively, Satan is also shown in ordinary human form. A master of disguise, he pretends either male or female in order to tempt human beings to sin.

Even when Satan appears in human form, his eyes occasionally revert to those of a reptile.

There’s a concept that the appearance of a person reflects his or her character. Bad people are ugly and good people are beautiful.

This concept influenced the way ideas developed about how good and bad angels behave.

Good angels serve God. Bad angels serve Satan. When angels first came into being, they were all good. Then some of them disobeyed God and were cast out of Heaven. These fallen angels or bad angels behave differently from good angels.

The word devil comes from the Greek word diabolos, which means slanderer. It has long been associated with evil. The word demon, comes from the Greek word daimon, or spirit.

According to beliefs, the devils are the ones with most contact with humans. They cause mischief for individual human beings. Demons create general chaos among human beings as a whole.

Other fallen angels spend all of their time in Hell and have contact only with bad humans who have died.

Supervising all the bad angels in Hell are the Princes of Hell, who are closest to Satan. Satan was once a loyal follower of God. There are many stories of how Satan or Lucifer turned bad. Almost all stories suggest that they were responsible for their own fall.

In modern times, a few religious leaders have suggested that there are two types of fallen angels, those who sinned on earth and those who fought the battle in Heaven.

Another belief is that of different angels called psychopomps-a word that means “soul guides” in Greek, led souls of the deceased to Heaven, Purgatory,or Hell. These angels serve God but are in a class separate from the good angels. Their contact with Hell does not place them at risk of becoming a fallen angel. They are immune to Hell’s temptations, concentrating only on their duties.

Someplace throughout the sentences you actually managed to create me a believer but only for a short though. I nevertheless have got a problem together with your leaps in logic and you may do nicely to fill in those breaks. Should you in fact can accomplish that, I could surely be fascinated.
