The role of God's angels in the great controversy is crucial to understanding the character of God. There are several stories in the Bible that suggest that the angels of God act as weapons of slaughter. The most notable examples are the destruction of the 185000 Assyrian soldiers and the slaying of the 70000 Israelites after David numbered the fighting men of the nation.
Are angels violent? Do they kill people when required?
We are advised to look into the face of Jesus to discover the answer.
