Fallen Angels Have Attempted to Censor Biblical History

by CK Quarterman

It is obvious that fallen angels have attempted to censor Biblical literature about themselves.


Justin Martyr, a philosopher who converted to Christianity during the time of Polycarp, suggested that fallen angels had infiltrated the highest offices of the church and desired to remove any evidence of fallen angelic activity prior to and after the flood. This is why any book that referred to the Book of Enoch was censored. However, the Bible supports evidence of fallen angel intervention.


1- Fallen angels have attempted to censor Bible information about their history.


Where they successful? I am not sure, but see my note below for my personal opinion on how we should treat these books.

Did you know that the Book of Jubilees and the Book of Enoch have always been canon in the Ethiopian Bible? Tertullian even called the Book of Enoch “Holy Scripture“.

What did Justin Martyr think about the fallen angels? He was the earliest church writer (Early Church Father).

“But the angels transgressed this appointment, and were captivated by love of women, and begat children who are those that are called demons; and besides, they afterwards subdued the human race to themselves, partly by magical writings, and partly by fears and the punishments they occasioned, and partly by teaching them to offer sacrifices, and incense, and libations, of which things they stood in need after they were enslaved by lustful passions; and among men they sowed murders, wars, adulteries, intemperate deeds, and all wickedness. Whence also the poets and mythologists, not knowing that it was the angels and those demons who had been begotten by them that did these things to men, and women, and cities, and nations, which they related, ascribed them to god himself, and to those who were accounted to be his very offspring, and to the offspring of those who were called his brothers, Neptune and Pluto, and to the children again of these their offspring. For whatever name each of the angels had given to himself and his children, by that name they called them“. Justin Marty Second Apology

2- They lusted after the daughters of Adam

3- Their offspring were the demigods of mythology the “men of renown” or Nephilim. The children of the Fallen Angels were the Nephilim of Genesis Chapter Six.

“And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters
were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.” (Gen 6:1-4)
Note:

Julius Caesar wrote about giants. I would not want to include his writings in anything canon. Flavius Josephus wrote about Christ. He is a historian. It may have been a first or second hand account, but its not in the canon, nor would I put it in the canon. Please, don’t allow books that are history (only) to confuse the issue of what is canon. Just because they claim or don’t claim to be canon is irrelevant. They are not canon, but they should not be thrown out on the trash heap anymore than the works of Julius Caesar.

Flavius Josephus is an important source for studies of immediate post-Temple Judaism and the context of early Christianity. Jubilees, 1 Enoch, Book of Giants, and Jasher are all historical not canon, but should be accepted where they agree with canon and rejected where they do not agree with canon. Just as you would any high school text book!

These books together add color to the Biblical account. They in no way take away from the Biblical account. Why not allow them to have a historical value? Allow them to fill in some of the story and color the edges so we understand the story a little more?

Julius Caesar in several volumes gave first hand accounts of fighting giants. Should we discount that, because the Bible doesn’t mention Julius Caesar’s accounts? No!

Hence, don’t throw the baby out with the bath water!

The Bible gives us the outline. There is nothing wrong with connecting the dots in the outline using historical Jewish writings.

“There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all argument, and which cannot fail to keep man in everlasting ignorance. That principle is condemnation before investigation.” — Edmund Spencer

The Book of Esther
by: Anonymous

Esther doesnt contain the word LORD (Yahweh) even once. The book of Esther may definitely be a farce, introduced by Edomite imposter "Jews", but how is Jeremiah 8:7-8 a contradiction of the rest of the book of Jeremiah or "the prophets"?

The original Judaean Jews were true Israelites who taught the truth, unlike today's imposter Jews. Many "contradictions" in the Bible are either mistranslations or misinterpretations by the reader.

Canon of Scripture
by: Pip

The Jewish Encyclopedia states that the Book of Esther is FARCE/COMEDY! It NEVER happened & yet it's part of the canon of scripture. How many more books of the Old Testament are FARCE/COMEDY?

The Levites/scribes edited & compiled the Old Testament & they also interfered with the Books of the Prophets by inserting verses which contradicted what the prophet had said (Jeremiah 8:7-8).

It is clear that there are 2 religions in the Old Testament, the priestly & the prophetic.

I believe the same thing happened to the Christian Church.

Fallen Angels
by: Lawrence Hebb

This is a very good article and I think you raise some really good points.

Some of the writers in the New Testament actually quote from the 'Apocrypha' as we call it. This is a collection of writings that are not in the Protestant Bible but are in the Roman Catholic Bible (you can get Bibles with them in).

Most of the books are historical in nature and deal with the four hundred years between the return of the Exiles from Babylon and the birth of Christ, a time that the protestant Bible says almost nothing about.

The two books you mention are both in this collection of writings, and they are quoted by none other than Jude the brother of Jesus (book of Enoch) and The Apostle Peter in one of his letters!

The reason that they are excluded from our Bible is that one of the tests of "authenticity" is that they can both be traced back to the purported writers. For the book of Enoch to be by him it would have to pre-date everything we have by at least a thousand years, but it's style and writing show that it's from around the second century BC. Many scholars feel that the book is a good one and one we should read, but they err on the side of caution for including it in the canon of scripture.

I agree with you though, that we shouldn't throw out the "baby with the bathwater".
