"sons and daughters who are half earthlike and half of the 'gods'"
return to letter

I asume you a referring to Genesis 6:1-4, in particular verse 4 which says:

"The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown."

This is a verse for in which God is telling us something, but we do know what He is telling us. The Bible does not tell us who the Nephilim are. Nor does it tell us who the "sons of God" are. (Notice that "sons" is not capitalized. Thus this does not refer to the Son of God--Jesus.) It may be likely that this was information for people who lived 3,500 years ago, and which has no meaning for us today. However, anything anyone says about this verse is pure speculation.

We do know that this is not referring to angels or demons having sex with mortal women. Both angels and demons are spiritual beings who have no physical bodies.
