Grudem's definition of angels.
Created spiritual beings with moral judgement amd high intelligence but without physical bodies.
If angels are spiritual beings with no bodies, how do you explain the fact that at times they have appeared to humans in bodies on earth?
God gives us a special ability to see them. Ex: Numbers 22:31~ opened the eyes of Balaam; 2 Kings 6:17~ opened the eyes of Elisha
List several other terms for angels.
Sons of God; holy ones; spirits; watchers; thrones, dominions, principalities, authorities; powers
List three other kinds of heavenly beings and give a verse which refers to each.
The "Cherubim"- guarded entrance to Eden, part of the ark, said to travel with God as his chariot (Genesis 3:24- ...at the east of the garden of Eden he placed the cherubim...)
The "Seraphim"- worshippers (Isaiah 6:2-7-"Above him stood the seraphim... "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!"...)
The "Living creatures"- worshippers around God's throne (Revelation 4:8- And the four living creatures... day and night they never cease to say, "Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!")
Explain the concept of guardian angels. Does the bible support this?
Angels watch over us, but the bible does not necessarily support this. No convincing support for the idea of individual "guardian angels" in the text of scripture. We don't have to worry about this though because God is our protector and worthy of being worshipped and trusted.

Why is it wrong to worship or pray to angels?
