The work of angles and demons
Each “essay set” assignment comprises a set of 2 distinct essay question prompts designed to stimulate the student’s thinking and assess the knowledge gleaned from the textbook and course reading. Each essay question should be answered with a 1 page double spaced essay, but compiled and submitted as a single document (2 essays for a total of 2–4 pages, double spaced). It is expected that the course textbook and assigned reading will qualify as the primary sources for writing essays; however, students are permitted to use other sources. Any sources quoted or used in the essay should be cited. Each essay is meant to answer a related group of questions, so it is important that you are thorough in answering the questions completely.
For this final essay, you decide to again meet the gentlemen from the coffee shop. Through your discussion he states that there are a lot of opinions surrounding the doctrine of angels. This has caused him a lot of confusion, particularly when it comes to how they work. In the first prompt, explain to him the work and ministry of angels as it pertains to both heaven and earth.
As a follow up, he is then curious in knowing your opinion when it comes to demons. Explain to him some of the foundational ideas surrounding demons. Who are they? What is their activity? Be sure to use relevant Scripture and supporting sources to substantiate your response.
