Ryan Willis says: I think it's a dangerous area when really we should see the angels as they are, being servants of the Most High and what the angels do for us is simply God working through them to carry out His purpose as He so chooses.
Me: Actually Rambam teaches that this is exactly how idol worship started. People saw powerful things such as the sun & the moon & the stars & fire and water and animals etc... At first they made images of these things in order to remind themselves but they were actually worshipping God who made all these things. Then they came to a feeling that these things were honored by God & so they too deserved worship. After a time they started to forget the real purpose they had made these images & instead started to worship the images themselves as deities.
