God Needed Another Angel in Heaven

At FaithBridge we are currently rolling through a sermon series called MythBusters, where we are looking at some common phrases to see if they hold up to the test of Biblical (and logical/historical) scrutiny.  This past Sunday, the myth was “God Needed Another Angel in Heaven,” and you can catch that sermon below.  The main idea is that God is the author of life, not of death (spoiler alert: God does not need another angel in heaven).

I closed the sermon with the following poem:

God is Love

God needed nothing to create
all of life, paradise.
Yet with one unfaithful act,
enter sin, death, and strife.

God gazed upon the mighty throng,
And sent his son to bring
An end to death forevermore,
the resurrection of the King.

Jesus is the chosen one,
and came that we might have life.
What can separate us from this Love?
Not even death, nor sin, nor strife.

    I haven’t had time to watch your sermon yet! I do look forward to it, as I do each week. I’m sure I’ve said, “God needed another angel!” It is just something that may have jumped out of my mouth at one time. Recently I read a devotional about this, which made me start to think more seriously about this statement. How silly it even sounds. Of course, God doesn’t need another angel, He is omnipotent!!!! I look forward to hearing this segment of your series. I am also going to try to find that devotion and reread it, since it provoked some serious thought on my part. Thanks for sharing, Love you!

    Thanks for clearing up the myths our human minds create to deal with life’s events. Maybe “fairy tale” type explanations that, while “feel right”, are not based in truth. Contine with the myth busting! It’s a motivator for to better understand the truths found in the Bible teachings of generations past.
