Just recently we have been looking at some old photos of when we first moved into our old house and there was a sign out the front that said "BEWARE MILITANT ANGELS GUARD THIS PROPERTY." And I was just wondering what this meant. Are these good, bad or ugly angels? Please email back even if you don't come up with anything.
Boy, the people who had the house before you had quite a sense of humor! There are no such things as militant guardian angels, since militants are people who are angry and rebellious. The demons who fell from heaven were militant against God, but they're into destruction, not protection. And the holy angels who protect us are submissive, not militant.
I think the sign is in the same category as the humorous signs I've seen that say "This property protected by an attack cat," and they mean a household kitten.
At any rate, your e-mail made me smile, and I appreciate it. Let me encourage you that it's cool and you have nothing to worry about.
