Do angels have wings?
Posted by Clyde Herrin
Everyone knows that angels have wings. Every picture we see of angels shows them with wings. However there is one problem. Some of the things said about angels in the Bible seem to contradict this belief.
Before God destroyed Sodom he sent two angels to take Lot and his family out of the city.
The two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them and bowed himself with his face to the earth and said, “My lords, please turn aside to your servant’s house and spend the night and wash your feet. Then you may rise up early and go on your way.”
They said, “No; we will spend the night in the town square.” But he pressed them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house. And he made them a feast and baked unleavened bread, and they ate.
But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house. And they called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them.”
The men of Sodom thought the angels were men and tried to attack them. Don’t you think that if they had wings the men would have known they would have realized there was something different about them and they wouldn’t have been so anxious to harm them? Read the rest of this entry →
