Who Were the 'Sons of God' in Genesis 6:2?

Unusual Terms

There are numerous terms in the Bible which are not explicitly defined or explained which raise some interesting questions. The question over the identity of the “Sons of God” in Genesis 6:2 is a fitting example.

The Bravery of Job

A Necessary Choice

When facing great times of crisis or trouble in life, the choice of many is to take the road of the coward. This road can manifest in different ways, such as: self-deprecation and self-blame, blaming others, or avoidance and escape. Each of these ways has one thing in common, a refusal to confront the problem directly. While this may not be possible in every instance, the question of “fight or flight” will separate the brave from the coward in any crisis.

What is Man?

A Vast Universe

The universe is a very large place, at least as far as we can understand its complexity. Within this universe are countless numbers of galaxies, each holding an uncountable number of stars. In reality, any such attempts at measurement are merely conjecture because man cannot comprehend such scope. Among such a maelstrom one singular galaxy does not appear to hold specific importance.

Part of a True Family

The Same Body

One of the interesting parts of traveling is the opportunity to visit other congregations of the body of Christ. In different cities, different states, even different countries we can meet fellow brothers and sisters who are a part of the same body. When greeting fellow Christians we are literally greeting our family, connected in a way more powerful than anything else in this world.

When People Face God...

Ignoring the Future

A sad reality of our modern world is how few people really expect to stand before their Maker one day. While many like to entertain the idea of a loving God and Heaven, the idea of a judgment scene is less popular. As man become more cynical, fewer people even consider that they will one day atone for their choices in this life, and even more cynically believe that if they do, they will be able to overcome it.
