If the sons of God were angels it would be written as so.

Am of opinion that sons of God are that of Seth while daughter of men were from Cain


bill's comment on 2015-04-20 15:14:22:

sons of god Bene alohim angels or a special type of angels..because as most people don 't know, in heaven their are different ranks of angels. Angels are messengers or servants of god, there pretty much the go between the spirtiual and physical world. Throughout the bible, we have cases were angels stepped down in their divinty, and took on mortal bodies. Genisis 6 is definity talking about angels. Their other books in the bible to back up this up as well. I know alot of people have a hard time wrapping there head around this, but as Mark twain said: " The truth is stranger than fiction. "


Christi's comment on 2015-02-04 05:36:46:

I believe with Wesley. The Bible states that God only had one son in heaven and that was Jesus. According to scripture, angels have never been called sons. Read Hebrews 1:5 and Hebrews 1:13. Let the Word of God be truth. The idea of angels having sex with women came out of a mind that didn 't have a clear understanding of scripture concerning angels. Angels neither marry or are given in marriage. Angels don 't procreate give birth to little angels so why would God give them sex organs or the desire for something that they would not need. He only gave those things to man because He didn 't create a world full of people. He created one man and one woman and told them to fill the earth with their kind. God has all knowledge and wisdom. He has never made a mistake and He never will. The only reference to woman being made is when Eve was made from man. God didn 't make male and female angels. All references to angels are in the masculine. Heaven is not being populated by beings that are being born there only with those from earth who are true to God. God is not the author of confusion.

The sons of God are from the bloodline of Seth.


colvin straker's comment on 2015-01-02 10:04:10:

I also think that the sons of God are angels.who took on human format and produce a giant race of hybrids.i also think that christ is not God because why would God punish the angels for having children by women and then he himself would have a child by a woman. Through Adams disobedience sin and death care into the world. Through Christ obedience sin and death was defeated. Sin was defeated when christ over came the wicked one when he was tempted 3 times and death when he died and came back to life to be what the scriptures call the new man

I believe that if God said Jonah was swallowed by a mino it would be true


Wesley Ledbetter's comment on 2014-09-01 08:42:10:

Why not angels? people refuse to see things as they are the only other race we know is angels and there was a legion of them in the beginning god walk thee earth so if he did it? Why not them we lost communication in contact with God because of sinand if you read a little bit more you will find out so did the angelsI have read the secrets of Enoch the Dead Sea Scrolls. The Lost books of the Bible The Lost books of Moses 5,6,7. The Book of Lilith the secrets of Solomon the problem is people are just selfish and stuck in their own ways. nor do we have open mind. I could have wrote a whole lot of scriptures but for what read it for yourself and get your own understanding


Kristen's comment on 2014-07-26 17:40:59:

I believe what Butch has said to be as close to the truth. It explains things spoofed off as myths to be facts. Including the pyramids, the giants fought by David, Joshua, etc. Skeletal remains have been found all over the planet of 10 foot larger. Elijah was taken away by a chariot of fire UFO? Endtime prophecy with DNA tampering by demonic influence to destroy mankind. Look around you an see it


Liberty's comment on 2014-05-28 07:15:23:

Is there any place in the bible where women are regarded as daughters of God? In acknowledging the position Man occupies in the hierarchy of creation, he is Called Son of God. while woman that was form from the man, is described as daughters of men. Angels have never been described as son of God. for unto which of the angels saith he at any time, thou art my son? the angels are created as servants or ministering spirit and have no male or female organ. man is created as son, Lk 3.38


Cosmos M. Sosibo's comment on 2014-03-12 00:34:03:

I believe that the sons of God referred to in Genesis 6 are angels that were in the process of falling from that status to demonic They are fallen angels who were trying to deceive the whole humanity and that are also referred to in Jude 1 6 7


Mystical's comment on 2014-02-10 13:32:57:

I believe the Sons of God to be those born from the line of Adam i believe the daughters of man were those created on the 6th day Gen1 27 God created man in His own image in the image of God He created him male and female He created them


jason's comment on 2014-01-14 23:26:50:

I fell into this trap by thinking it was the angels that slept with women, it was there in my face, i argued with people cause i was so convinced that i was right and that angels did have sex, but then i actually started to study and look it up for myself, with prayer and study, God has shown me that angels having sex is a false doctrine, theres loads of scripture that will prove this doctrine wrong. when Jesus drove out demons, does the bible say He drove out Sons of God..nope. It is heresey!! Seek and you will find.


Winter's comment on 2013-12-30 18:34:27:

There are two arguments here. Seth and cain's kids v.s. angels and man's kids. For those who have chose a view i entreat you to ignore your opinion and read the verse in genesis, then fully study out the view point of the one you DO NOT believe. Read every pro-argument against your standing on the subject then and only then compare your original belief. By then regardless of your original standing you will be an expert in both views as well as obtaining the blaring truth of which actually took place...christ said the truth will set you free. Enjoy:)


Thomas Vargheese's comment on 2013-11-28 06:24:50:

Only the earthly creatures were created as male and female, not the angels. Devils are fallen "angels" who were neither male nor female in the worldly sense. Therefore neither the angels in heaven nor the fallen angels have any sex interests. Moreover, the rebellious angels can never be called "sons of God". The men of Sodom and Gomorrah wanted to have "sex" with the angels who visited Lot, not because the angels desired so, but those brutish men thought that they were real men. So the only rational explanation is that the lineage of Seth was described here as the "sons of God" that of Cain as the "daughters of men".


victor's comment on 2012-11-22 00:26:37:

The Bible is clear on its say, angels were the fellows watchers, the sons of GOD in which they took wives and bore the nephilims the hybrid babies.


pete's comment on 2012-07-24 21:03:02:

they were an alien race that had sex with our women and produced "men of renown".

hi, could you explane Gen.6:2
thank you


hamton's comment on 2012-06-05 05:59:07:


Butch is right and he delineated his reasoning directly from unmolested scripture. You and another poster stated how your reasoning is short-sighted in each of your own statements. You said, "The LORD HIMSELF stated [...are like the angels in Heaven who neither marry...]. Exactly-<i>in Heaven</i>. Why is Cain not mentioned in Adam's lineage? Also, if you notice, Cain's sons became the fathers of all worldly things-metal working, music, etc. Where did they get the knowledge to do so if Cain was hidden from God? Further, the same "Sons of God" are spoken of in the old and new testament in reference to fallen angels.

Nowhere in the Bible does it ever say that all angels are in heaven or that they cannot conform to earthly bodies (see Sodom and Gomorrah where they tried to rape the angels).


Lonnie's comment on 2012-05-17 13:42:23:

Butch is right. Basically Wesley is saying that the godly line (Seth) mingled with the ungodly cain and this union produced giants. There is no godly line, if the line of seth is so godly then how come Noah and his family were the only ones on the ark? I believe the sons of God are angels no other interpretation makes sense.
