Angels. They are our guardians, our healers, our protectors. They follow us wherever we go. They lull us to sleep and send our prayers to God on wings of the morning. They are gentle, kind, caring, full of heavenly grace and beings of immense beauty.
Or are they?
Stories of angels are prevalent in our society. From paintings to bumper stickers, belief in angels is at on all time. I would even hazard to say that more people are willing to believe in angels than in God. Perhaps because the view of angels is based on our own preconceptions of what angels are. Some believe they are glorious beings of both genders with white wings playing a golden harp or lute. Some suggest they are warriors of power, girded with armor, and wielding swords. Still others see angels as benign, sending message from earth to the heavenly realm. Even more so, some people believe angels are our dear departed dead sent back to guide loved ones in their lives and protect them from catastrophe.
From small images carved of glass to massive statues adorning places of worship, angels are mentioned in one form or another in various faiths around the world. This has given rise to the worship of angels.
Which leads to the problem of angels.
