Guardian Angels Exist
ChristiaNet.com, a large Christian portal with eight million monthly page loads, recently asked, "Do you have a guardian angel?" President of ChristiaNet, Bill Cooper, stated, "The Scriptures reveal to us that God did indeed create angels."
Out of 1,600 Christians surveyed, 84% believed that they had a guardian angel. Most in the group believed because they had personally experienced the protection that guardian angels are said to bring to children of God, "I know because I have felt their presence, especially when something horrible happens around me. For some reason I seem to escape unscathed." Others said that, "The Bible tells us we have guardian angels that watch over us." Still, others in this group quoted certain Bible verses, one of them being Matthew 18:10, "Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, that in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven."
Twelve percent of those surveyed did not believe in guardian angels. Some felt that, "The Holy Spirit and God are who protect us, not angelic beings. God gave them a different purpose." Others in this group did believe in angels but did not believe in guardian angels, "Sure, there are angels, the Bible speaks of them, but they are not assigned to protect individual people." Still, some people in this category did not believe at all, "I have never felt a guardian angels protection. Bad things happen to me just like everyone else."
Only four percent of survey participants were unsure. Some wanted to believe, but still weren't sure, "I feel them around, but I can't say I have ever seen one or have any proof." One poller stated, "I hope so. It sure would be nice and I could sure use the protection that people claim they give". Some in this category couldn't give a definite yes or no answer because they were unfamiliar with what the Bible says about angels, "I don't know the exact passages, so I can't give an opinion, but I hope so."
To help educate Christians, ChristiaNet has just released a free Angels Quiz. Using the latest interactive technology, one can test their Biblical knowledge on issues facing the Christian Community.
