Sin and The Nature of Angels

The term “sons of God”in reference to angels appears five times in the old testament; Genesis 6 [two times] and Job 1:6; 2:1, 38:7. The same Hebrew expression is used in Job 1:6 and 2:1, describing when the sons of God came to present themselves before Him and Satan came also among them. Angels are of clear interest here and it is plain.

Sin and The Nature of Angels

Job 38:4-7 makes us see without doubt that God is referring to angels also. So we have good angels rejoicing at creation and we have fallen angels who sinned with the daughters of men _both are called sons of God.

The account of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in Daniel 3:24-25 calls an angel the son of God.
Jude 6-7 If Sodom and Gomorrah and other cities committed fornication in like manner as angels, we see that angels commit sins. Further illustration is seen with the daughters of men Genesis 6.

The angels warranted their judgment as verse 7 of Jude gives the clue.
If we combine the scriptures of the books of Genesis, Job and Jude, we’ll gain insight in this issue. Everything was perfect in the beginning. No fallen angels or demons but later Satan fell, drawing the support of one third of the angels. They became the fallen angels. What happened in Genesis 6 happened after the fall producing evil children from that evil union into the world. Angels Have sinful nature and are imperfect. This is seen in Job 4:17, 1st peter 1:12. This is because they are creatures. [1st question answered], JOB 1:6 [They owe allegiance to God]

Since we see in the thirty-third fact that majority of the angels present unalloyed loyalty to God, I do not believe that they would still sin. Also, they should have learnt their lessons from the devil who is a fallen angel.
