Chestnut Ridge Church
Angels and Demons—Part 1
Many misunderstandings come with the unseen world of angels and demons. While some have trouble believing the devil and his helpers exist, others give Satan too much credit for the difficulties in life. Misconceptions about God’s angelic helpers also abound. We wonder whether we have a guardian angel, or if people receive angel wings when they pass away. There are so many questions—how can we know the right answers? Beginning this week, we’ll take a look at some of the most common misunderstandings of this hidden world. Join us as we explore Angels & Demons—and let’s see what God has to say about it.
