How could any human really know the order of angels and the hierarchy system? If asked to verify that information, what could they use as proof that didn’t require the same belief as theirs?
Why would Almighty God, the creator of all that is, ever need "guarding"???
I was going to ask the same question — and whom are they guarding God against?
As if HE could be vulnerable.
I know!!! As IF!
