The only sure thing that drugs can do for you is either is put you in jail or kill you. And I can think of many things on how it can ruin your whole life.

1,201 wordsGod's holy angels carry out a variety of tasks and deeds, as well as the angels of Satan. They carry out what the will of heaven is on earth when god Himself wants. Sometimes they appear as normal humans and sometimes with all the radiance of heaven shining upon them, and making known that a part of heaven is on earth. What I am going to try to explain is that I don't think that angels have a role. I think that any angel does whatever heaven's will wants it to do, when it wants it. In other word...

Elsewhere, in a statement that has been variously understood (Mt 18: 10), He warns against misleading a child, because their angels behold the face of God. (Acts 2: 15 may refer to a re...
