Do angels have reproductive organs (read the whole question por favor)?

It is thought that fallen angels mated with women and produced giants according to Genesis 6. That must mean that angels have some form of reproductive organs, right? If so, can they mate with each other and produce offspring? If not, why did God give them reproductive organs?

Update:

"Angels are male and they are not gay"....

So they must have a penis to be male, eh? Why do they have this penis?

    They weren't angels.

    Gen 6:4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.

    There is nothing to tell us who the Nephilim were. Some versions translate that word to 'giants'. Calling them sons of God doesn't make them angels. We are called the sons of God in the NT.

    This verse does not have enough info for us to speculate.

    Such an odd question but... Here are my thoughts (oh, I have never dated, met or even been introduced to any but earthly angels, so these are opinions and may or may not reflect reality... assuming angels are real)...

    SInce there is no empirical way to answer this question, we have to examine the logic. First of all Angels were created by God, they apparently have the ability to fly, hide from sight at will, manifest various constructs of energy and matter at will, can move instantaneously from place to place, and have mental abilities superior to ours. Now, it is obvious that Angelic/Godly creatures mating abilities and ways are vastly different than humans (Virgin Birth, Death and resurection, The Holy Trinity) and that their physical forms may not be completely analgous to humans (think burning bush, blowing the trump of doom, Sodom and Gamorra, Wings). Lastly, realize that the bible, is a translation of a translation of a translation, thus Mated with may not be a literal or even correct translation (the whole witches thing was a mistaken translation). So, what we basically "know" from the bible is that the fallen angels interacted in someway with human females to cause the genesis of giants. Whether this is intercourse(sex) or genetic manipulation similar to what happened to Mary we have no way of knowing. I personally suspect that any creature that can create burning bushes, raze towns or fly with wings Is probably not very humanoid. Further, with the power shown throughout the old testiment, they would not need genitalia to cause the above..

    As for the rest of your question, I could be wrong, but I do NOT remember any mention of a single female angel, so at best they would have to be hemaphrodites to be able to breed...

    Oh, and another thought... and think on this, if you take two different breeds of teh same animal and breed them, the resultant offspring are usually sized between the parents... if angels and humans begat giants... how large are the angels? If they are properly equipped would they actually fit???? Just food for thought

    Angels are spirit creatures and do not have reproductive organs. Angels were not design neither do they have a need to reproduce because they were created individually by God. Humans reproduce in order to populate. The wicked angels in Noah's day made materialized bodies in order to have relations with human women. Remember they were present when God created the first human pair, they have extensive knowledge of the human anatomy. This was a gross misuse of their abilities and completely unnatural. After their gross disobedience, God took away this ability from those wicked angels but there are many examples in the bible of faithful angels materializing bodies in order to interact with humans. One example is of Lot and his family. The angels that visited him and practically pulled them out the city were in materialized bodies. Also, after his resurrection, Jesus visited his disciples on several occasions in a materialized body.

    Who were “the sons of the true God” that were involved? Were they men who were worshipers of Jehovah (as distinguished from the general run of wicked mankind), as some claim? Evidently not. The Bible implies that their marriage to the daughters of men resulted in whipping up the badness in the earth. Noah and his three sons, along with their wives, were the only ones in God’s favor and were the only ones preserved through the Deluge.—Ge 6:9; 8:15, 16; 1Pe 3:20.

    Hence, if these “sons of the true God” were merely men, the question arises, Why were their offspring “men of fame” more than those of the wicked, or of faithful Noah? Also, the question might be asked, Why mention their marriage to the daughters of men as something special? Marriage and childbearing had been taking place for more than 1,500 years.

    The sons of God mentioned at Genesis 6:2, therefore, must have been angels, spirit “sons of God.” This expression is applied to angels at Job 1:6; 38:7. This view is supported by Peter, who speaks of “the spirits in prison, who had once been disobedient when the patience of God was waiting in Noah’s days.” (1Pe 3:19, 20) Also Jude writes of “the angels that did not keep their original position but forsook their own proper dwelling place.” (Jude 6)

    Angels had the power to materialize in human form, and some angels did so to bring messages from God. (Ge 18:1, 2, 8, 20-22; 19:1-11; Jos 5:13-15) But heaven is the proper abode of spirit persons, and the angels there have positions of service under Jehovah. (Da 7:9, 10) To leave this abode to dwell on earth and to forsake their assigned service to have fleshly relations would be rebellion against God’s laws, and perversion.

    These fallen angels had the power to materialize in human form, when they materialized as humans they materialized reproductive organs, this is the only way they could have relations with the daughters of men. Their offspring were called Nephilim, gib·bo·rim′, both mean giant/s.

    This was an unnatural union, the results being giants,8 to 10 feet tall that had twelve fingers & twelve toes.

    When the flood came these fallen angels dematerialized their human bodies & were no longer a sexual creature, now they were back as spirit creatures that were thrown in to tartarus, were all of the demons & Satan are going. Jude 6

    Spirit creatures do not have sex organs & God did not hold back from punishing the angels that sinned.” These, Jude says, “did not keep their original position but forsook their own proper dwelling place” in heaven. They came to earth before the Flood and took on fleshly bodies so as to engage in sexual relations with the daughters of men. As punishment for their improper, unnatural conduct, they were thrown into “Tartarus,” or as Jude’s account says, they were “reserved with eternal bonds under dense darkness for the judgment of the great day.”—2 Peter 2:4; Jude 6; Genesis 6:1-3

    Just because Genesis mentions "Giants in the land" doesn't even IMPLY anything about mating with Angels (first off). And secondly, Angels are just like "MAN" and were and are all created in God's image. All have bodily parts just as we do because that is part of the physical body which makes up the WHOLE of a created being. Many spout some nonsense about God being a nonsexual being or some other stupidity... I say BAH to that notion.

    If we are created in His image then HE too has the same body parts that we have and yes, that would imply that procreative power is in His make up as well, just as it is an important and divinely designed part of ours.

    Mating with angels.... no no no - that's just some Sci-Fi thinking and silly I.M.O.

    before the flood the angels used power to manifest human bodies and procreated with human women, That is the reason god brought the flood and preserved only real human creatures, then he removed that power from them so that they could not produce nephilim, the hybrid offspring of human and angel. They have no reproductive organs because spirit creatures are not sexual beings. They changed the naturalness of themselves. Not unlike males who lie with males. You are free to decide to be homosexual, it is your right to choose, but they had no right and so god made it impossible for them to do such a thing again.Jesus was once a spirit and became human to redeem us.but he is no less of a god.

    There are different interpretations of the Genesis account. Some theologians believe the phrase, "Sons of God" refers to the righteous descendants of Seth. The “Daughters of Men” were descendants of Cain. Others say that the “Sons of God” were fallen angels; i.e. demons and the “Daughters of Men”, human women. Either way, the offspring were exceptionally strong and large.

    No angels don't have reproductive organs. Fallen angels took over men's bodies and used the men's bodies to create evil offspring.

    No. Angels could create human bodies out of dust.

    Those who go to heaven to rule with Christ (his bride) will also "lose" their reproductive and sex organs even their gender and will live as the angels do without sex.

    Matthew 22 KJV

    29Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.

    30For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.

    1 Corinthians 15 KJV

    49And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

    50Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

    51Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

    Penises, boobs, vaginas do not go to heaven.

    Those who become spirits are changed. That is, new spirit (immaterial, non-matter, energy bodies) are made for them and their flesh rots in the ground.

    1 Cor. 15 KJV

    35But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?

    36Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:

    37And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:

    Rather than the last of Christ's bride, just disappearing or flying up to heaven bodily (rapture), they must all die.

    Jude 6 KJV

    6And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

    7Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

    The wicked angels did what they did under their own power. They can perform miracles too. God did not give sex parts to them hence it was unnatural and a sin for them. They became demons and lost eternal life.

    by some "tradition" they do not... it is not revealed in Scripture.... the sons of God who mated with human women could well have been from somewhere else in the created universe... it is extremely likely that God has seeded life throughout the universe... and some may well have visited earth in those days... and some of the life forms out there could well be genetically compatible with humans... God is perfectly capable of such work so no reason to doubt that it could have happened that way... The "Biblical" record is not clear on the subject.

    Source(s): my own general idea... just as valid as any other based on incompleat data
