Greek gods and demi-gods


Greek gods and demi-gods

The Fallen Angels are source of mystery and intrigue for many. They really aren’t that mysterious. God created Angels to serve Him by serving man (Hebrews 1:9-14). When Lucifer fell from grace he took a third of the angels with him (Rev 12:4). Some committed acts that got them locked up until judgement day and others roam the earth today.
Some have wondered what happened to the angels from Genesis 6 that came to earth and had babies with the daughters of man. This created a race called Nephilim (or Giants) on the earth. Have you realized by now that all myths are based in some form of reality? Such is the case with these Greek Myths. “Greek gods” were nothing more than angelic beings who came to the race of men to interbreed. This created a true demi-god situation where men of extreme size and power were created. Some may have even been hideous.
The Greek myths actually may give some insight into what those days were like, taken with a hefty dose of salt because they have been clouded in 1,000′s of years of story line and exaggeration.
So if this happened once why not again? The purpose of the inbreeding can be found in the instructions given at the fall.
15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”
Satan/Lucifer knows that the offspring must be a pure bred human. So he begins a DNA manipulation plan to ruin the seed of mankind. This becomes so awful that there is only one human family left on earth that hasn’t been ruined for evil and God wipes the earth of the whole mess. He then locks up those angels for a judgement day to come.
 4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days–and also afterward–when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown. 5 The LORD saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. 6 The LORD was grieved that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain. 7 So the LORD said, “I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth–men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air–for I am grieved that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD.
And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day
For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment
18 For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit, 19 by whom also He went and preached to the spirits in prison, 20 who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water.
Whole mythologies were birthed from these events. Zeus and Poseidon and the whole mess were tales derived from these things.
There are those who would say that angels cannot have babies because of Luke 20:
  • Luke 20:31-41
35 But those who are counted worthy to attain that age, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage; 36 nor can they die anymore, for they are equal to the angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection.
One could say, however, that this is simply pointing out that angels do not die and is not a reference to their reproductive capabilities. They ate with Abraham while discussing Lot’s future in Sodom. They made food for Elijah. They do not have corporeal bodies but they can interact well enough with ours that we don’t know if we entertained them or not. So they interact well enough with our form. It is likely true that they do not procreate among themselves and that their state and number if final. But we are not told that one way or the other in biblical precedent.  Could Angels, being intelligent, use some form of genetic manipulation to have babies with mankind?
  • Hebrews 13
1 Let brotherly love continue. 2 Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.
It’s an interesting hypothesis. It certainly speaks to the Greek Mythologies basis in reality. There are those at the History Channel who would have you believe that the Greek Gods were Aliens who came down and interbred with Humans. That may be truer than THEY even realize, but it’s not Aliens from another world, but rather another dimension, the spirit realm.
It’s an interesting Idea anyway… to be continued…

Foundations Class #2 Levels of Change

Foundations Class #2Levels of ChangeBob HampClass can be seen on GatewayPeople.ComStarts with two stories...1. True Story. He had driven out to help his aunt who had a flat tire. He used a metric lug wrench on an American car, it wouldn't work so he forced it, stripping out all the lugs. He used the wrong tools to try to fix the problem and trying harder made it worse.

2. Potty Training Parable. You have an infant and shortly after you realize that the child needs his/her diaper changed. So you change it and it gets dirty again, and you change it, and it gets dirty again... Constant change but nothing changes. Then you get a higher order of change. Potty training. Once the child is potty trained you no longer have to change the messes anymore. A higher order of change has over-ridden the former things.
It is this type of change we are referring to with "Levels" of change. Not levels as in: When I pass 1st grade I will be in 2nd grade. It's not linear change, progressiv…

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Introduction In the beginning, the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. (Immerse, 2017) John, page 399 
Notice that John begins his gospel by calling Jesus, The Word. We find Words, and the stories they create for us, impact us at a level that is beyond our cognitive ability to understand in the moment. Being caught up in a story can make you lose all sense of present, and be transported to another time and place (and sometimes another world entirely).

Ever since Aristotle observed that stories had a beginning, a middle, and an end, the science of story has been developed and studied. Our modern sensibilities tell us at a gut level whether a story “works” or i…

Reflection Paper: Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis

Reflections of Mere Christianity
This is a reflection paper of the text Mere Christianity (Lewis, 1952, 1980). The content was first delivered as radio broadcast material between 1942-1944 by Clive Staples “CS” Lewis. Lewis then gathered the materials and published them as three sperate works, later combining and editing the text that became Mere Christianity. With the mind of a scholar and the mouth of a layman, Lewis takes us through the various topics that affect our lives as Christians and provides practical break-downs of how we are to treat each topic, supplemented by a host of modern parallels and parables. He is careful not to take any position that is not laid solidly in the Word of God, leaving those positions that are controversial within the Church either without an opinion or a well-deserved analysis of each side. However, far from a dry treatment of theology, Lewis gives us a laugh through each turn as he cuts through the heady stuff for the “why behind” each discussion…
