Genesis 6:2
". . . the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose."

The "sons of God" are claimed by J.W.'s and others to have been angels who had sinned and spread evil by marrying the daughters of men. A J.W. publication puts it this way:

"To marry the daughters of men, those heavenly sons of God {angels} materialized human bodies, clothing themselves with fleshly bodies like those of men on earth . . . When the Flood came, those disobedient sons of God could not get into Noah's ark, and so, to escape from the floodwaters, they dematerialized, dissolved their assumed human bodies, and returned to the spirit realm. They were not admitted back to the heavenly family of God's perfect, sinless sons. They were degraded to a very low state that the Bible calls 'Tartarus' . . . {J.W.'s teach they became the spirits in prison, 1 Peter 3:19, 20.} In view of this form of imprisonment those disobedient spirit 'sons of the true God' cannot materialize anymore and live like husbands with women. But they still keep as close as they can to mankind, especially to women, whom they prevail upon to serve as spirit mediums, fortune-tellers, clairvoyants, and so forth."1

  1. All existence in Scripture is bodily existence. Nothing is known in Scripture of "materializing" and "dematerializing" "assumed" bodies. J.W.s should be pressed hard for evidence to justify such a doctrine.

  2. Luke 20:35, 36 is conclusive - angels do not marry: "But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection."

  3. "Sons of God" can refer to angels as it may in Job 38:7, but the expression is also used of men. (See Deut. 14:1, R.S.V.; Hosea 1:10; Luke 3:38; John 1:12; 1 John 3:1). In Genesis 6:2 the "sons of God" were the righteous line of Seth (Genesis 4:26)2 intermarrying with evil Cainites.

  4. It is sometimes contended that only angel-human offspring could produce "nephilim" (mighty ones or giants, cf. Gen. 6:4). But the sons of Anak (Num. 13:33) were also giants, ("nephilim") and these were certainly not angel-human offspring, as they existed long after the flood.

  5. Divine angels can not sin. They are "ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who will be heirs of salvation". (Heb. 1:14). These angels are not rebels, but do Yahweh's commandments, "hearkening unto the voice of his word . . . ministers of his, that do his pleasure." (Psa. 103:20, 21).

  6. The "spirits in prison" passage in 1 Peter 3:19, 20 is considered elsewhere on this site.
