Demons

By

Definition:

Demons (who are also commonly known as fallen angels) work for evil purposes that lead to destruction in the world, in contrast to the good purposes of the missions that faithful angels fulfill. Judaism and Christianity are the two major religions that say that God originally created all angels to be holy, but some rebelled and became demons when they fell into sin. Believers stress the importance of people protecting themselves from demons by staying close to God.
