Essentially every culture has beings that are equivalent to the Judeo-Christian notion of angels. Though by and large they are often believed to be spiritual beings of great power and knowledge, we in the west, thanks to generations of artistic license and marketing strategy, tend to think of angels as beautiful women with wings, or conversely pudgy cupid-like infants. Scripturally though, how does this hold up? What does the Bible have to say specifically about angels, and is there an insight to be gained about them from other sources as well? Check back Friday as the new series begins. God bless!

I am a believer, a husband, a father, and an artist. I have been a researcher at heart for as long as I can recall, always burying myself in any interest that I have found myself drawn to. While everything from archaeology to zoonosology has its own level of intrigue for me, I have always gravitated to biology in particular. That love of biology brought me to the world of commercial biotechnology, and though it was a vastly intriguing field to be involved with, I turned away from it and focused my attention on other things. My greatest joys in life now are found in the relationship I have with my Savior and in the special time I spend with my wonderful wife and three lovely children. I am an avid researcher of the science behind Biblical Creationism, and as such I am a proud member of the Creation Science League, the Creation Research Society, Associates for Biblical Research, and the International Association for Creation, and I have spent the last several years writing and illustrating my first book on the subject (hopefully soon to be published), with others in the development pipeline behind it. In the meantime I write a weekly blog (www.foundry4.com) on various relevant topics from science and history to philosophy and personal experience, all from a Christian perspective. I am currently pursuing an education in Bibliology, and have been vigorously applying the insights gained from that pursuit not only towards teaching others in Bible Studies, but also introducing the little ones to Jesus as the Children's Minister at my church, and preaching the Word every opportunity I get.
