What you will find here is more information concerning the never ending argument of who the "sons of God" are in Genesis 6.  I have written on this subject in in three previous articles, Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3.  In this 4th part I thought it proper to demonstrate the early Church leaders, before this modern era, held a better view and understanding than most of the Evangelical teachers of today.  This resource is from Barnes Notes, a commentary publishing dates 1847-85, by noted author and Christian scholar, Albert Barnes.  You will read his knowledgeable and common sense approach, with due consideration of the Holy Scriptures.  This is the first part of his commentary concerning Genesis 6 and this business concerning the "sons of God".  Unlike many modern teachers that have allowed their imaginations to run wild, Barnes identifies the "sons of God" as followers of the Creator God, even calling on His Name, walking with Him, talking with Him through he centuries leading up to Noah, with Noah being the end of that human line known as the "sons of God", all of whom were physical men, not angels.

   We are told there is to be a great falling away from the truth and then the end shall come -- when will this falling away begin?  They, the Evangelical teachers of the Rapture and other false doctrines, say we are in the end times now, that the Christ can come at any time.  Therefor they are witnesses against themselves, confessing that we are living in the final days and therefor in the "falling away from the truth".

   Consider what Albert Barnes had to say, and is still saying, from the grave, what the Word of God reveals on this subjects others have taken and interjected the doctrine of devils and demons as they chase after -- the truth be told -- Jewish fables.

(Tit 1:13-14) This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;  Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.

That's right, this fable about spirits cohabiting with women is a Jewish fable found in their Oral Torah, so called, writings.  This false teaching is being taught by some in the highest ranks of the Evangelical community.  What seems to go hand in hand with this false doctrine is the secular theology surrounding UFO activity.  It would seem the New Age Movement has infiltrated the Church.

Please consider what used to be considered the truth -- and in these end days -- what is being taught as truth now?

Barnes Notes covering Genesis 6:1-6, publication Date 1879 AD -- we read;

- The Growth of Sin

3. di^yn "be down, strive, subdue, judge." baŻshagaŻm "inasmuch, as also." The rendering "in their error" requires the pointing  beshaŻgaŻm, and the plural form of the following pronoun. It is also unknown to the Septuagint.

4.  nepi^li^ym "assailants, fellers, men of violence, tyrants."

Having traced the line of descent from Adam through Sheth, the seed of God, to Noah, the author proceeds to describe the general spread and growth of moral evil in the race of man, and the determination of the Lord to wipe it away from the face of the earth.

Gen_6:1-4

There are two stages of evil set forth in Gen_6:1-4 - the one contained in the present four verses, and the other in the following verse. The former refers to the apostasy of the descendants of Sheth, and the cause and consequences of it. When man began to multiply, the separate families of Cain and Sheth would come into contact. The daughters of the stirring Cainites, distinguished by the graces of nature, the embellishments of art, and the charms of music and song, even though destitute of the loftier qualities of likemindedness with God, would attract attention and prompt to unholy alliances. The phrase "sons of God," means an order of intelligent beings who "retain the purity of moral character" originally communicated, or subsequently restored, by their Creator. They are called the sons of God, because they have his spirit or disposition. The sons of God mentioned in Job_38:7, are an order of rational beings existing before the creation of man, and joining in the symphony of the universe, when the earth and all things were called into being. Then all were holy, for all are styled the sons of God. Such, however, are not meant in the present passage. For they were not created as a race, have no distinction of sex, and therefore no sexual desire; they "neither marry nor are given in marriage" Mat_22:30. It is contrary to the law of nature for different species even on earth to cohabit in a carnal way; much more for those in the body, and those who have not a body of flesh. Moreover, we are here in the region of humanity, and not in the sphere of superhuman spirits; and the historian has not given the slightest intimation of the existence of spiritual beings different from man.

The sons of God, therefore, are those who are on the Lord’s side, who approach him with duly significant offerings, who call upon him by his proper name, and who walk with God in their daily conversation. The figurative use of the word "son" to denote a variety of relations incidental, and moral as well as natural, was not unfamiliar to the early speaker. Thus, Noah is called "the son of five hundred years" Gen_5:32. Abraham calls Eliezer ben-beŻyti^y, "son of my house" Gen_15:3. The dying Rachel names her son Ben-oni, "son of my sorrow," while his father called him Benjamin, "son of thy right hand" Gen_35:18. An obvious parallel to the moral application is presented in the phrases "the seed of the woman" and "the seed of the serpent." The word "generations"  to^ledot, Gen_5:1) exhibits a similar freedom and elasticity of meaning, being applied to the whole doings of a rational being, and even to the physical changes of the material world Gen_2:4. The occasion for the present designation is furnished in the remark of Eve on the birth of Sheth. God hath given me another seed instead of Habel. Her son Sheth she therefore regarded as the son of God. Accordingly, about the birth of his son Enosh, was begun the custom calling upon the name of the Lord, no doubt in the family circle of Adam, with whom Sheth continued to dwell. And Enok, the seventh from Adam in the same line, exhibited the first striking example of a true believer walking with God in all the intercourse of life. These descendants of Sheth, among whom were also Lamek who spoke of the Lord, and Noah who walked with God, are therefore by a natural transition called the sons of God, the godlike in a moral sense, being born of the Spirit, and walking not after the flesh, but after the Spirit Psa_82:6; Hos_2:1.

Some take "the daughters of man" to be the daughters of the Cainites only. But it is sufficient to understand by this phrase, the daughters of man in general, without any distinction of a moral or spiritual kind, and therefore including both Cainite and Shethite females. "And they took them wives of all whom they chose." The evil here described is that of promiscuous intermarriage, without regard to spiritual character. The godly took them wives of all; that is, of the ungodly as well as the godly families, without any discrimination. "Whom they chose," not for the godliness of their lives, but for the goodliness of their looks. Ungodly mothers will not train up children in the way they should go; and husbands who have taken the wrong step of marrying ungodly wives cannot prove to be very exemplary or authoritative fathers. Up to this time they may have been consistent as the sons of God in their outward conduct. But a laxity of choice proves a corresponding laxity of principle. The first inlet of sin prepares the way for the flood-gates of iniquity. It is easy to see that now the degeneracy of the whole race will go on at a rapid pace.

I hope this has been of help in understanding that what is passing for truth today, on this subject, was rejected by our forefathers.  Please Consider the following scriptures and base the truth, the real truth on the word of God, not a fictional work pretending to be truth, when in fact what is being presented as truth today denies the word originally delivered to us by YaHshua and his Apostles.

(2Ti 4:4)  And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned to fables.

(2Pe 1:16)  For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord YaHshua the Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.

(Tit 1:13-14)  This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.

(Mat 22:30)  For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.

(John 3:13)  And no man has ascended up to heaven, but He that came down from heaven,eventhe Son of man which is in heaven.

(John 1:18)  No man has seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared him.

(1Jn 4:12)  No man has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwells in us, and His love is perfected in us.

(2Th 2:9-11)  Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

(2Th 2:3)  Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
