God is about wrong and right and the struggle between them. We assume God is almighty, but maybe he needs some faith himself. Would you fight for man if they stand lazy on the side expecting you to take care of things. The battle between good and evil are the torments of man, not of God.

In Heaven: A History (1995: Yale University Press) the authors, Drs. Colleen McDannell and Bernhard Lang, state that Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) had a pivotal role in bringing about a changed view of heaven, including the idea that angels are humans who have died and gone on to heaven, rather than a separate race of pre-created beings as mainstream ...

Why do people die but angels do not, but both have sinned? There is little reason not to assume that angels were created at once and with full abilities of understanding and choice. We know that humans are created sequentially and in ignorance. Both elect humans and elect angels were created. Matthew 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great ...
