    In my opinion God cannot create nothing immortal. But human can alone become immortal. Maybe some people have become angels. What do you think, can human become angel?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    No.
    Angels are created beings, but they are not human and humans are not angels and do not become them.

    By your reasoning we do not have the hope of spending eternity with God.

    It's a nice "comforting" way of explaining death to a child, but angels are created beings and we cannot become them.

    That would be like believing when your dog died he became a cat, which is better for him because now he gets to stay inside when it rains or is cold, where before he stayed outside all the time, so in essence he is in Heaven. :ebil:

    God can create beings which He intends to continue on living. God can not create anything eternal as He is eternal (having always existed) because that is God alone, and God is not created.

    But He can create angels and humans and purpose that we will never be annihilated. (Though the physical bodies of humans will die during this age due to the curse of sin - but our souls continue and will one day be united with resurrected bodies and once again be body+soul as God intended.)

    Humans do not and will not become angels though. Angels are one kind of created being, humans are another.

    Welcome to CF.

    God has lived from eternity with not only Himself bit with other beings in the eternal heaven e.g. The priestly Order of Melchizedek in this passage

    Heb 7:
    1 For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, who met Abraham as he was returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him, 2 to whom also Abraham apportioned a tenth part of all the spoils, was first of all, by the translation of his name, king of righteousness, and then also king of Salem, which is king of peace. 3 Without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God, he remains a priest perpetually....

    I'm pretty sure a human won't become an angel when He dies. The bible make a clear distinction between us and angels.
    Also, it comes to my mind the passage where Paul is saying: "do you not know we will judge Angels?"
    We are different beings, have different roles and purposes. There's like an order to God's creation.
    I believe that the bible say that mens are made in God's image. And we also are to inherit salvation. (which is not the case from angels)-
    Sorry for the errors in english! French here :)

    No, humans cannot become angels. God made the spiritual beings called angels before He created the physical universe. Even though angels can appear as humans, they are spirits.

    Hebrews 1:14 says, "Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?"

    God made man out of the dust of the earth and breathed His Spirit into him. So, even though man has a spirit, he is not only a spirit as angels are. So, unlike angels, humans have physical bodies.

    How can so many on here judge God? God's powers are limitless.

    There is absolutely nothing in Scripture that suggests that humans can become angels. Nothing. So, no.

    Becoming the image of the Father as Jesus was is to become a messenger sent in His Name, as the book of Hebrews points out. Not messengers like the angels who spoke before that to the law. Now all is spoken in Christ. Hebrews 1:1, John 6:63, John 12:48

    At the root of the meaning of the word ‘angel = send with a message’ and in biblical Hebrew meant ‘work, occupation or craftsmanship’. The morphological structure of the word mal’akh (מַלְאָךְ) suggests that it is the maqtal form of the root denoting the tool or the means of performing it.

    That tool is the Holy Spirit Who is responsible for the new creation that will alone be raised from corruptible to incorruptible and will raise the mortal body should that self-same spirit dwell in any.

    It's not abut judging God; it's about reading Scripture.
    We have eternal life but there is nothing to suggest that we turn into angels after death.

    God is not confined to the Bible. It is a guide. Its not a rule book governing on how God can decide things.

    Who knows the mind of God?

    No, God is not confined to the Bible, but neither does that mean that anything the mind of man might conjure up is what God does or has done.

    If He had done X, then there must be some reason for thinking he has done that, some evidence of it...not just saying that it is possible with him.

    No, it's a series of writings that reveals him to us - ultimately shown in Jesus, of course.
    If it's not in Scripture, it's speculation/wishful thinking.

    If your point is that there are other eternal pre-existent Beings who are eternal just as God is eternal - that is not the accepted Christian teaching. That would make such beings God just our One God is God.

    But since this is controversial maybe it can be suggested here. I'm not going to debate it.

    One explanation is that Melchizedek is a type of Christ (a Christophany in fact) - and being that we believe God exists in three Persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) then in that aspect it is true.

    But there cannot be other eternal Beings which suggest multiple "Gods".

    Yes but God limits Himself by His own Words.

    That is not what the passage is suggesting...

    God is not restricted by scripture. Scripture is for man's benefit.
