Hm. Do people become Angels after they die?
What do you think? I’d love to hear your response.
Meanwhile, I’ll tell you mine. My response is a question. Do Angels start out as humans?
I don’t think so. So following that train of thought, I think the answer is no. Angels are not glorified human beings, they are God’s Angels.
It is, however, a wonderful thing to say to children when someone they love dies. That their loved one is now an Angel. It gives them hope that they have their own personal Angel. And, really, we all have a touch of the Angels in us, so it’s not a big stretch for them to believe that.
But when you look at the situation realisticly, there is a difference. And there will always be a difference.
What do you think?
No you are right we do not turn into angels and they were never human. That is if one believes the Bible it's pretty clear about that. As a matter of fact they desire to be like us because they can't understand salvation- pretty amazing thing.
I help run a support group for people who have had near-death experiences (NDE) or spiritually transformative experiences. I fully realize there are those from various religions who will want no part of this discussion or thinking, but I can tell you that we're not humans having a spiritual experience, we are loving spirits having a human experience. When people share about their NDE's, it's often filtered thru whatever their religious upbringing was but the core event is generally consistent with the millions of accounts throughout the world since the beginning of recorded history. If this is a topic of interest to anyone, the best website to start with is the International Association of Near Death Studies, referred to as IANDS (click on the word IANDS) Here's a link to a Dr. Oz episode when he had a guest, a surgeon, who had an NDE.
