Christian Belief That Fairies Are Demoted Angels

Christian Belief That Fairies Are Demoted Angels

Demonic fairies are summoned by parents to visit their children at night and pay for their teeth.

     In Christian mythology is the belief that the Fairies were a class of "demoted" angels. One popular story held that when the angels revolted, God ordered the gates shut; those still in heaven remained angels, those in hell became devils, and those caught in between becoming fairies. The fairies are inexorably tied in with the Nephilim because of the folkloric belief that the fairies dwell in the subterranean chambers of the burial mounds.
     The story of Lilith and Fairies stealing babies appears to be ancient wives tales that has little relevance in today’s world.  Historically, mothers would sing a song to their children at night to keep Lilith, an evil angel, away from their children."  Lilith is the etymological root of the word "Lullaby." Today, it is common practice to encourage children to beckon demonic fairies and sell them their teeth.
