    Speaking of guardian angels, it is a fallacy to believe that every individual has an assigned guardian angel. There is no biblical support for this concept.

    At the same time, since angels are ministering spirits, they are sent to minister to, and assist Christians (or the OT saints), as and when need. At least in the Bible record.

    The New Age Movement caused a shift in the focus from God and Christ to angels. However, since the NAM is riddled with false doctrines, chances are that the angels connected with them are in fact evil angels pretending to be good.

    Chances are that no one does. God's love, grace, and mercy are unfathomable, because they extend to undeserving sinners.

    For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich. (2 Cor 8:9)

    There is more depth to the ministry of angels than can be discussed here. Could be an interesting thread. I agree that the NAM or occult concepts in general have muddied the waters.

    over the years I have heard many stories or testimonies from people who were helped by who at first appeared as ordinary men, but afterward were evidently angels. I say evidently, because no other explanation would suffice. I firmly believe that angels are more involved in our lives than any of us are aware. Events, thoughts, inspiration, that we do often attribute to the work of the holy Spirit, I believe would be more accurately credited to angelic influence. Not that the holy Spirit isn't involved, but God is big on delegation of responsibility, so I think angels have the prime responsibility in keeping us from harm, influencing many of our decisions, and assisting us in many ways in our labouring with God for the good of his kingdom. No guardian angels? I disagree...I think we have billions of them who can fly instantly to our sides when needed... Or when God directs.

    I said no guardian angels ASSIGNED to each one individually. I agree with what you have said otherwise.
