Are Giants Half-Angel, Half-Human?
Did Angels Breed With Women?

By Ken Raggio

I have met a lot of people who think that angels bore children by women. I have never been able to figure out why anybody needs to believe that.

The proposition generally comes from a misunderstanding of Genesis 6.
    "And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. ...There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown," Genesis 6:1-2,4

As the argument goes, the phrase "sons of God" is taken to mean "angels." So they translate the verse to say, "the ANGELS took wives," or "the angels came in unto the daughters of men."

Stop. Go back to verse one. The original premise of this scriptural passage is: "men began to multiply on the face of the earth."

The phrase "sons of God" is talking about human beings - men.

Yes, there are verses in the Bible that ascribe the angels to be "Sons of God." (Job 1:6, 2:1, 38:7).

But, the Bible also calls ADAM the son of God (Luke 3:38).

Paul said, "As many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God," Romans 8:14.

"Beloved, now are we the sons of God," 1 John 3:2. So, all born-again believers are Sons of God.

The point is that the phrase "sons of God" cannot be construed to exclusively refer to angels.

But there is more. Much more.

The Bible simply does not support the belief that there are any half-angel, half-human creatures. It is a totally pointless doctrine.

The assumption would HAVE to follow that there are people in the world today who are HALF-HUMAN and HALF ANGEL. That is absurd.

There are no half-angel/half-humans in the world. You do not know any, and I do not know any.

If such a creature existed, it would have multiplied to this day.

Therefore, I refuse to teach otherwise, because it is not true.

Take note that their offspring, "the same became mighty MEN," (Genesis 6:4). These offspring were not half-breeds, nor were they hybrids. They were 100% human.

A nephilim (Genesis 6:4 - "giants") is a giant, which is a human that is overgrown, usually due to a pituitary gland malfunction. That is not an angel or a devil. It is 100% human. The sons of God mentioned in Genesis 6:2 were not angels, but men.

Jesus plainly taught that in heaven there will be neither marrying nor giving of marriage because we shall be as the angels. (Matthew 22:30, Mark 12:25)

Based on that scripture alone, we can deduct that angels are sexless creatures. They are neither male nor female. There is no scriptural basis for believing that angels have either genitals or reproductive organs. They do not have children. No human ever had sex with an angel. There is NOT ONE EXAMPLE in the Bible of an angel marrying, having a husband or wife, having a child, or raising a family.

In addition to that, fallen angels CANNOT be redeemed. The angels who sinned are reserved in chains of darkness until the judgment day. (2 Peter 2:4; Jude 1:6)

A half-angelic human, if it existed, could never be redeemed. There is no plan of salvation for such a creature. Nothing in the Bible gives instruction to such a creature. There is no benefit or reason to believe such a theory. It serves no purpose in the Church. It is a quirk and a novelty to discuss, but has no basis in truth or reality.

No problem, though, because there is no such creature. We are all 100% humans.

Wonderfully, fallen humans CAN be redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ. You were not born of an angel or a devil. Not one human on earth was born of the "serpent's seed." We are all mortal sons of God after the flesh of Adam, and we who are BORN-AGAIN are immortal sons of God after the Spirit.

There is no reason for anybody to teach that angels had children by earthly women. There is no evidence or teaching of any kind in the Bible to support such a notion.

"Why did ...the people imagine vain things?" Acts 4:25.

"Let no man deceive you with vain words," Ephesians 5:6.

"Avoiding profane and vain babblings," 1 Timothy 6:20.

"Avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, ...for they are unprofitable and vain," Titus 3:9.

These are the last days, and time is swiftly running out. We do not have time for pointless preaching. Let us focus on preaching the gospel truth. The whole truth. And nothing but the truth.
