Creation as a Divine Fact Section One: The good angels are sent as guardians, but demons tempt men to sin. Although human reason may reasonably conjecture the existence of pure spirits, it required divine revelation to make the fact absolutely certain. Indeed a fair index of fidelity to supernatural religion is the acceptance of angels as created by God and now living in two states of being, those in heaven who also minister to the needs of men, and those in hell who are demons and bent on the destruction of the human race through estrangement from God.
If an apology is necessary for treating of the angels in theology, it is only because of the preoccupation with human psychology and physiology, and the practical absence of any concern for or interest in a whole world of reality which is at once intelligent and deeply involved in the affairs of men.
Moreover in the practical ascetical field, we know the stress that St. In the present thesis we seek to establish and explain six distinct propositions of faith: John the Baptist Matthew You ask what is the name of his nature.
He is a spirit. You ask what is the name of his office. He is an angel. We may define angels as purely spiritual created substances, where each word in the definition has special significance. They are substantial beings, that is, beings existing per se, and not mere personifications of divine operations.
While substantial, they are created, to distinguish the angels from God and specify their essentially contingent Thesis about demons which was brought into existence and is conserved in the same by the power of God.
Yet they are spiritual substances, and as such both different from and superior to men, whose natures are a composite of matter and spirit. Men, otherwise than angels, are rational animals.
And of course angels are still farther removed by their spirituality from all material beings not endowed with intellect and will. Finally angels are purely spiritual substances, to further distinguish them from men, who are not purely spiritual but also material; and to specify this distinction even as applied to disembodied human spirits, which still have an aptitude for reunion with a body and which we know, on faith, will be so reunited in the final resurrection.
Grace as used in the thesis is sanctifying grace, namely, a permanent supernatural gift of God, which confers participation in the divine nature along with adoptive divine filiation and a title to inherit the Kingdom of God in the beatific vision. Connaturally associated with sanctifying grace and implied in our thesis are the infused virtues and gifts of the Holy Spirit, together with a right to those actual helps which are necessary to preserve and increase the supernatural life.
Entrance into heaven for those who persevered and damnation for the others implies that the angels were on probation in via, and therefore freely determined their eternal destiny by cooperating or resisting with respect to the grace they received.
In other word heaven for the good was a reward, and for the wicked hell a just punishment. No figures, even comparative are attempted on the number of the saved and damned spirits, although it is commonly held that an immense number proved unfaithful and a correspondingly great multitude serves at the heavenly throne of God.
Damnation for the evil spirits is understood as eternal in duration, but its nature is not further examined in the thesis beyond the general fact that documents imply essentially the same kind of punishment for the demons as for the lost souls in hell.
The latter will be analyzed with more detail in the treatise De Novissimis. Actually the angels have a variety of offices, with relation to God, to Jesus Christ, to one another and to mankind.
With regard to God, their office is to praise, bless, adore and respond with perfect obedience to the will of God. With regard to Jesus Christ, their office is to serve Him, even as man, as indicated in St.
Among the angels themselves, the office of the superior is to enlighten those who are lesser. Their office in relation to man is expressed in the thesis. It is also stated universally, to mean that men in general are objects of angelic guardianship, and also that men in particular are under this providence, including both believers and infidels, adults and those who have not yet reached the use of reason.
Further specifications are handled separately in the body of the proof. Demoniac temptations of men are only one, although the most common, form of diabolic attack or assault which is permitted by God. The three generic ways in which devils assault men are by temptation, obsession and magic.
While we do not go into analysis of all three types, it is worth placing them here in context and thus distinguishing more clearly the notion of temptations properly so called. In general temptations may be either probative or seductive.
The first is directed to our moral benefit, and comes either from God, the good angels or from men. The second is intended to seduce or lead to moral harm, to cause us to sin; and this is properly speaking diabolical. In either case, temptation carries the connotation of putting a man to the test, to find out something about him, to his spiritual benefit or injury as the case may be.
Theologians distinguish diabolical temptations which are internal and not sensibly perceptible, from those which are sensibly perceptible, whether internally or externally.Angels and Demons Angels and Demons is a mystery-thriller novel written by Dan Brown.
