Question: How could the angels in Genesis engage in a physical relationship with earthly women? I thought they could not marry or they were of different material than we are. But the Word says they took wives of men and had mighty or giant men.

Answer: The account of Genesis 6:2-3 has been a controversial topic for centuries, with people holding a number of different views on the meaning of these verses. If they are describing angels having physical relations with human women, the Bible provides no information on how this occurred. Some things we must accept solely because God said it without insisting on a full explanation.
