What are your views on angels? In shows like Touched by an Angel, and the movie It's a Wonderful Life, angels are involved in lives as guardian angels.

I have no problem with the concept of God sending an Angel to guard one of his followers on occasions when that Angel is needed.. But the roman catholic doctrine that one is assigned a guardian angel from birth and that angel is always by ones side i do not agree with / believe..

There is no Biblical evidence for such a doctrine.. It just seems to be some feel good doctrine someone made up and others wanted to believe it was true and ran with it..

You8 may have seen in you Bible study the reference made to Jesus on the water walking whe reported to the disciples that he who saw Him must have not seen Him but His Angel.s

In this regard it is refering to the Spirit of our Lord, We all have our Spirit, howeve4r we do not always call our Spiorit our Angel,. This has probably been the root of this fantasy of theology.

It seems to me that, if we all had guardian angels constantly with us and protecting us, then no one would ever get harmed, injured or killed. Our angels would prevent it.. JMO

I am not sure we each have a specific angel assigned to us, but there is Biblical evidence that not only are angels assigned to help us, but we MAY indeed have a "guardian angel":

Hebrews 1:14 New King James Version (NKJV)
14 Are they not ALL ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?

Matthew 18:10 New King James Version (NKJV)
The Parable of the Lost Sheep
10 “Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven THEIR angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven.

Psalm 91:11 King James Version (KJV)
11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

Acts 12:15 New King James Version (NKJV)
15 But they said to her, “You are beside yourself!” Yet she kept insisting that it was so. So they said, “It is HIS angel.”

That's some pretty strong Biblical evidence for saved Christians having guardian angels.
