148) That angels are superior in nature and intelligence to man
I have read that the Orthodox see angels as quote "superior in intelligence and nature to man". It is so obviously wrong however to say that I have no doubt at all this will be one of their "movable" doctrines, were if it becomes an embarrassment they will produce some quotations from their bizarre list of spurious pseudo saints, hermits, pillarists etc to "prove we really believe otherwise"
Born again men are superior to angels as we are the sons of God. No angel would talk back to God, or spiritually supplicate him in a familiar family fashion as we do.
