Spiritual Sunday – Angels: Beyond Christianity


Welcome to Spiritual Sunday, a day dedicated to exploring the mystical and spiritual aspects of life. In today’s post, we embark on a captivating journey through various religious traditions to unravel the concept of angels. While angels are often associated with Christianity, we will discover that these celestial beings have a presence in other faiths as well, transcending religious boundaries and reminding us of the universal fascination with the divine. So, let’s dive in and explore the diverse perspectives on angels across different religions.

  1. Angels in Christianity: In Christian theology, angels hold a significant place. They are considered as God’s messengers, divine beings created to serve and protect humanity. From the archangels like Michael and Gabriel to the cherubim and seraphim, Christianity paints a vivid picture of angelic hierarchies and their roles in the cosmic order.

  2. Angels in Islam: Moving beyond Christianity, we find a rich belief in angels within Islam. In Islamic tradition, angels are seen as heavenly beings made of light, created by Allah to carry out specific tasks. The angel Jibril (Gabriel) played a crucial role in delivering the revelations of the Qur’an to the Prophet Muhammad, while angels are also believed to record each person’s deeds for judgment on the Day of Resurrection.

  3. Angels in Judaism: Judaism, too, acknowledges the existence of angelic beings. While the Hebrew Bible mentions angels sparingly, Jewish mystical traditions like Kabbalah delve deeper into angelology. Within these mystical teachings, angels are seen as intermediaries between God and humanity, embodying different aspects of divine energies and serving as messengers of spiritual insight.

  4. Angels in Zoroastrianism: Zoroastrianism, one of the world’s oldest known religions, holds a belief in celestial beings known as “Amesha Spentas” or “Bounteous Immortals.” Although not explicitly termed as angels, these entities fulfill similar roles, representing different aspects of divine attributes, such as righteousness, truth, and wisdom. They aid in maintaining cosmic harmony and guiding humanity towards goodness.

  5. Angels in Sikhism: Sikhism, a faith founded in the 15th century, recognizes the existence of celestial beings known as “Devas” and “Devtas.” While their nature and role may differ slightly from traditional angels, these entities are regarded as divine messengers and protectors. Sikh teachings emphasize the importance of connecting with these spiritual guides to seek enlightenment and spiritual growth.
