About The Angel Andrew in “Touched By An Angel” August 28, 2010

1. Touched by an Angel

I had been looking at the TV series “Touched by an Angel” off and on for several years. I could not help noticing recently, that the Andrew, angel of death, featured quite often. In the series, he works collaboratively with angels such as Tess. You know that someone is going to die when Andrew appears on the scene.

However, is the angel of death an Angel of God or a fallen angel?


2. The truth about the angel of death as dramatized in the Holy Bible.

I heard God telling me that death is an enemy and I also know this to be true from the scriptures.  So I conducted a brief search on the topic and will now share my findings:

  • In the New Testament, thanatos is the Greek word for death (G 2288).
  • Adam brought death by sinning against God (1 Corinthians 15: 21)
  • Death is an enemy and will be destroyed (1  Corinthians 15: 26) 
  • Apostle Paul explained that death controlled humans from the time of Adam’s fall (Romans 5: 14 & 17).
  • Hell follows Death (Revelation 6: 8; Isaiah 14: 9)
  • Death is accompanied by tears, sorrow and crying (Revelation 21: 4)
  • Death and hell hold the unrighteous dead (Revelation 20: 13)
  • Jesus pleaded with “strong crying” to be delivered from its power, pains and agony  (Hebrews 5: 7; Acts 2: 23 & 24)
  • Death destroys the body (1 Corinthians 15: 54)
  • It has a sting called sin (1 Corinthians 15: 55)
  • Jesus came to deliver us from the fear of death  (Hebrews 2: 15)
  • Jesus abolished death and gave us life and immortality (2 Timothy 1: 10)
  • Death and hell will be cast into the lake of fire for ever (Revelation 20: 14)
  • The angel of death does not live in heaven (Revelation 21: 4)


3. Is Andrew a friend of God and His angels?

The angel of death is a fallen angel and enemy of God who will one day be cast into the Lake of Fire. 

In the television series “Touched by an Angel“, the angel Andrew is incorrectly portrayed as a friend of God and His angels. This is a serious error and departure  from the teachings of the Holy Bible.

The way TBAA puts the angel of death is to make death easier. The death that Andrew is responsible in helping with is the first death, dieing of the body. The death that the verses talk about is the second death, Hell. I understand your point but just because death is a part of their title doesn’t mean they are a fallen angel.

Hello Trexland

The scriptures teach us in 1 Corinthians 15:

– that death is an enemy
– death has a sting
– death is swallowed up in victory

For the believer in Christ, the sting of death is overcome by eternal life, because the spirit of the believer goes from the body to join the Lord in heaven – 2 Corinthians 5: 6 & 8.

– the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ – Romans 6: 23.

I stand on the Word of God and not by the opinions of Touched By An Angel, however, well meaning it appears to be.

That’s very interesting, I use to love watching “Touched by an angel”, but then I thought Andrew is not a kind man, and it hurt me so much to see life taken away. I was a child not fully understanding death, it really did leave me with the wrong impression on God! This is a very revealing insight, thanks!
