Spiritual Warfare Forum: Female and Male angels

Female and Male angels QUESTION from Jarryd on January 6, 2003 Hello
Is it true that angels cannot be female? I've heard that the derivation of angel is angelos... and that's a greek masculine now, but I've also heard that there is a hint of female angels in Zechiriah, can you shed some light on this?
ANSWER by Mr. Joe Meineke on January 7, 2003 Dear Jarryd,
Peter Kreeft answers this question in his book, Angels (and Demons): What do we Really Know About Them?
46. Are there Female Angels? 1. No, and there are no male angels either. Angels have no bodies, therefore no biological gender. 2. But masculinity and femininity are broader than male and female. Masculinity and femininity can refer to personalities, souls, spirits. So angels could possibly be masculine and/or feminine, even though they could not possibly be male or female. p. 76. God bless you,
Joe Meineke Assistant to Bro. Ignatius.
