There are serious problems with Chuck Missler’s handling of Genesis 6 and the question of
the identify of the sons of God. He repeatedly misrepresents the text and the facts, and he often reads
into the text meanings that cannot be sustained by the context or by the Hebrew language itself.
Additionally, the Angels View has problems from which it cannot recover. The failure of the Angels
View is evidenced by the rising popularity of what has come to be known as the Tyrants view. More
and more contemporary commentators are abandoning the Angels view in favor of the Tyrants view,
primarily because they have come to realize that the Angels view cannot be sustained against close
examination. There is no questioning Missler’s sincerity and dedication, but on this subject, he has
missed the mark.
