Hi Mr. Collins-
I read your blog about the Serpent Seed Heresy and everything you said makes sense. The whole racial supremacy thing never made sense to me, but I do have a question for you regarding Gen. 6:2 and verse 4 which talks about the sons of God having children with daughters of men who are known as mighty men and men of renown. What is your opinion of these scriptures? I’ve heard some people think it was demons who had manifested themselves, but I never heard it in regards to the Serpent Seed Heresy topic, just that they possibly formed a race of giants.
I enjoy reading your website and you always have great things to offer!
Thank you for your positive feedback on my blog which mentioned my article about the serpent seed heresy. Genesis 6:2 and 4 do, indeed say that giants emerged in the pre-Flood world. However, it was not from interbreeding with angels (who themselves have no physical or human reproductive sperm or eggs). The “sons of God” language is explained in Genesis 4:26. This verse states in the King James Version that “…then men began to call upon the name of God.” That implies that mankind was turning toward God in the pre-Flood era, but Genesis 6 tells us the opposite was occurring. Mankind was turning far away from God. The explanation for this conundrum is in an alternate translation of Genesis 4:26. My King James Version (The Open Bible Edition of the King James Version by Thomas Nelson Publishers) offers an alternate translation of this phrase in its marginal reference. The alternate translation is listed as “…then began men to call themselves by the name of the Lord.” This makes more sense. This version simply states that mankind began to call themselves by the name of the Lord. In other words, pre-Flood mankind knew it was created in the image and likeness of the Creator God, as Genesis 1:26 affirms. They simply called themselves “sons of God,” which is exactly what God calls mankind too (II Corinthians 6:18). The “sons of God” in Genesis 6:2 & 4 were simply human males.
Just a thought about the origins of giants. Joshua 10:13 and II Samuel 1:18 both record that the book of Jasher used to be a valid scriptural book. It is no longer in our biblical canon and modern published editions of the book of Jasher have some clearly unscriptural material. However, the book of Jasher in my library does seem credible in its accounts through the time of the patriarchs. Jasher 4:18 relates that pre-Flood mankind learned how to teach the “…mixing of animals of one species with the other.” In other words, they learned the secrets of DNA manipulation, genome mapping, etc. to make possible hybrid or genetically-altered species or specimens which would not ordinarily occur in nature. This capability on the part of pre-Flood mankind would require that their civilization was a very high-tech society like our own (which is also now mapping genomes, creating clones and chimera specimens, genetically altered forms of plants, etc.). This is totally consistent with Jesus’ own prophecy in Matthew 24:37 that our latter day civilization would mirror the pre-Flood civilization. The pre-Flood giants didn’t come from interbreeding with angels. They were bred by pre-Flood mankind who knew how to manipulate genetics or do selective breeding of humans to create giants. Genesis 6:11 records the pre-Flood world was eventually “filled with violence.” You can imagine how useful it would be to breed armies of giants via genetic manipulations.
