Been a while without any posts. Sigh… It’s be cause the internet connection in my office has been error for nearly two weeks!! Damn !!!
But now it’s been repaired.. So here the post again. And it is still about the conception of angels at Supernatural The Series.
Many movies are depicting angels as helpful to human and merciful as well. They are also usually described as righteous. However, in Supernatural The Series, the Angels are not always helpful, nor merciful. Neither are they righteous. Just as described by wikipedia:
Contrary to angels in television series such as Touched by an Angel, Castiel and other angels are not out helping people in need. Though he has a conscience, Castiel is willing to kill innocents if the need arises.
Misha Collins who played as Castiel also commented at Chicago Tribune Blog as follows:
“I think that these angels are at least loosely derived from some Biblical angel stories, and those angels are [very tough]. They just destroy. I picked up Revelations, and they destroy, they destroy, they destroy. There’s no mention of cherubs and harps or any of that.”
So, that’s the characteristics of the Angels at Supernatural the Series.
Then I turn and think about Islamic concept. I find it quite the same indeed.
In Islamic View of Point, each angel has its own task and job. Some as messager (who brings revelation from God), some as spreader of prosperity (literally: “Rain”), some others as “secretary” who write only virtue, or secretary who write only evil… Some other as executor of death (it’s similar to Reapers at Supernatural)… There are also executors at life after death, and there are executors who torture souls at Hell as well.
For several angels (in Islamic concept), they are probably helpful, merciful, and righteous… But for several others, especially the executors and destructor, they are not at all !!!
So, that’s another match point I’ve just found about angelic concept at Supernatural the Series and Islamic View. They are does not have to be Helpful, Merciful, nor Righteous !!!
Anyway, Season Finale for Season 4 has been aired at USA. And be cause I’m in Indonesia, I haven’t watched it yet… What a poor !!! Hopefully I will have bougth the DVD or downloaded it by this saturday.
