In the scriptures one type of supernatural being mentioned are angels. They are a supernatural force that does not seem to have , nor do I think ever will, any scientific evidence for. I don’t even think it’s realistic to come up with a evolutionary argument for them as beings that evolved like we did. But it’s not surprising since we don’t believe God evolved from a primitive being either.
In scripture we see angels mentioned as a governing body called the Hosts of Heaven where they seem to debate among one another along with God in how to handle certain situations on earth. In 1 Kings 22:19-23 we read of them deciding to deceive Ahab through a false prophet by a lying spirit.
We also see angels mentioned as princes of the world acting as spiritual protectors and messengers over specific people or nations. Such as in Daniel 10 we read that an angel, most likely Gabriel from two chapters earlier, come to the prophet Daniel with a divine message and during the delivery he mentions that it took him a while to get there because the angelic princes of Persia and Greece stood against him and only the Prince of Israel ( or maybe the price concerned with just Daniel) was the arch angel Michael. Satan himself is potentially called the prince of the power of the air ( Ephesians 2:2)
We see angels involved in individuals lives and acts as well such as the angels that destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah ( Gen. 19 ), wrestled with Jacob ( Gen. 32:22-32 & Hosea 12:4), the angel that warned Jospeh to flee Herod ( Matthew 2) and even angels carrying out the wrath of God throughout revelations. We even are told that we need to treat strangers well because it may be an angel in disguise. (Hebrews 13:2)
For a fact the true enemy of the world is a group of fallen angels. The same angel that use to test mankind like Satan did Job became our enemies and roam the earth like a devouring lion. They are the powers of darkness in heavenly places. ( Ephesians 6:10-17) A sort of evil Hosts of Hell. ( I don’t actually think angels have anything to do with hell but it’s a concept we use).
So my question is how does this fit into the naturalistic paradigms that we mostly all share in common. For me, I believe that the supernatural world exists. Same as for miracles such as the resurrection we place our hope in. But I’m curious how do others merge science and faith on this issue or is this one place where they simply don’t harmonize as far as evidence goes.
