why do you as a JW think angels came down and had sex with woman Gen6:1-4?
Rom 8:14 says anyone that follows the spirit is a son of God. ANYONE not just angels are son of GOd if they follow the spirit of God.
Gen6:3 talks about HIS SPIRIT CAN NOT STRIVE WITH MAN, which is saying they were sons of God.
Gen 6:1. How many of you people pick your own wife, of your own choosing? EVERYONE picks their own mate and join the flesh, which Gods says his ways are spirit. What is wrong with the woman's body? that God can not walk with the flesh which all join as one in? So if the world were all sons of God, and people walking with God in the spirit, they are all men. NOT ANGELS. The whole world only knows the flesh with their love. All have gone their own way in marriage and death will do you all apart when Gods says his ways live forever Ecc3:14, 1 john 2:17 and his ways are spirit when all the men in this world are not sons of God when it comes to love with a woman and r flesh in their own way and again death will come knocking one day and all your love is tick tock tick tock DEAD and all their love will die with the world. There is nothing heavenly about man and woman and there ways of the flesh and are dead beings walking with each other.
Julius O: the whole thought of God GIVING LIFE WITH ANGELS AND WOMAN IS WICKED god says he is THE GIVER OF LIFE, not a being where life can be stolen from. He would have to bless angels having sex which means the great giver of life had plans for angels to come down and have woman...now if nothing was born from the union I would have no objection to angels comeing down and having sex.. God is wicked with your faith he says HE IS THE GIVER OF LIFE, he knew those Giants names and he planned it for angels to come down...which he did not, as they were men. Gods spirit was so strong with men, they gave birth to GIANTS.

Who were the ‘sons of God’ that fathered the Nephilim?
Who were “the sons of the true God” that were involved? Were they men who were worshipers of Jehovah (as distinguished from the general run of wicked mankind), as some claim? Evidently not. The Bible implies that their marriage to the daughters of men resulted in whipping up the badness in the earth. Noah and his three sons, along with their wives, were the only ones in God’s favor and were the only ones preserved through the Deluge.—Ge 6:9; 8:15, 16; 1Pe 3:20.
Hence, if these “sons of the true God” were merely men, the question arises, Why were their offspring “men of fame” more than those of the wicked, or of faithful Noah? Also, the question might be asked, Why mention their marriage to the daughters of men as something special? Marriage and childbearing had been taking place for more than 1,500 years.
The sons of God mentioned at Genesis 6:2, therefore, must have been angels, spirit “sons of God.” This expression is applied to angels at Job 1:6; 38:7. This view is supported by Peter, who speaks of “the spirits in prison, who had once been disobedient when the patience of God was waiting in Noah’s days.” (1Pe 3:19, 20) Also Jude writes of “the angels that did not keep their original position but forsook their own proper dwelling place.” (Jude 6) Angels had the power to materialize in human form, and some angels did so to bring messages from God. (Ge 18:1, 2, 8, 20-22; 19:1-11; Jos 5:13-15) But heaven is the proper abode of spirit persons, and the angels there have positions of service under Jehovah. (Da 7:9, 10) To leave this abode to dwell on earth and to forsake their assigned service to have fleshly relations would be rebellion against God’s laws, and perversion.
The Bible states that the disobedient angels are now “spirits in prison,” having been ‘thrown into Tartarus’ and “reserved with eternal bonds under dense darkness for the judgment of the great day.” This seems to indicate that they are greatly restricted, unable again to materialize as they did prior to the Flood.—1Pe 3:19; 2Pe 2:4; Jude 6.

Why.???...quiet simple the bible says so.
The bible says in Job 1:6 that angels are sons of God...and also says about 90 times in the bible that humans are Sons of men.
So...if in Genesis 6:1 says the sons of God mixed with the daughters of men....then angels materialized bodies as we see in Genesis 19:1-4 and took women.
Also the book of Jude says the same in Jude 1:6
Jude 1:6 And the angels that did not keep their original position but forsook their own proper dwelling place he has reserved with eternal bonds under dense darkness for the judgment of the great day

In the days of Noah, some angels were also influenced by what they saw. Referring to them, Genesis 6:2 relates: “The sons of the true God began to notice the daughters of men, that they were good-looking; and they went taking wives for themselves, namely, all whom they chose.” Lustfully looking upon the daughters of men aroused in the rebellious angels an unnatural desire for sexual relations with humans, and those angels fathered violent offspring. Man’s badness at that time resulted in the destruction of all mankind, with the exception of Noah and his family.These angelic sons of God had relations with women, and the women bore children who grew to possess extraordinary strength. They came to be known by the Hebrew term “Nephilim.” We are told: “The Nephilim proved to be in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of the true God continued to have relations with the daughters of men and they bore sons to them, they were the mighty ones who were of old, the men of fame.” (Genesis 6:4) The Nephilim were much to be feared. The word “Nephilim” means “Fellers,” those who cause others to fall down. They were killers whose violent exploits are likely echoed in ancient myths and legends.
While the Nephilim and their debased angelic fathers may have enjoyed fame in the eyes of their contemporaries, they certainly were not famous in God’s sight. Their way of life was detestable. Consequently, God acted against the fallen angels. The apostle Peter wrote: “God did not hold back from punishing the angels that sinned, but, by throwing them into Tartarus, delivered them to pits of dense darkness to be reserved for judgment; and he did not hold back from punishing an ancient world, but kept Noah, a preacher of righteousness, safe with seven others when he brought a deluge upon a world of ungodly people.”—2 Peter 2:4, 5.
At the global Flood, the rebellious angels dematerialized and returned in disgrace to the spirit realm. God punished them by prohibiting them from again materializing human bodies. The Nephilim, the superhuman offspring of the disobedient angels, all perished. Only Noah and his small family survived the Deluge.
—Gen. 6:4-7, 11, 12.
Jehovah’s long-suffering was seen in Noah’s day. Over a century before the Flood, “God saw the earth and, look! it was ruined, because all flesh had ruined its way on the earth.” (Genesis 6:12) Still, for a limited time, Jehovah showed long-suffering toward mankind. He said: “My spirit shall not act toward man indefinitely in that he is also flesh. Accordingly his days shall amount to a hundred and twenty years.” (Genesis 6:3) Those 120 years allowed faithful Noah time to produce a family and—when informed of God’s decree—to build an ark and warn his contemporaries of the coming Flood. The apostle Peter wrote: “The patience [a quality related to long-suffering] of God was waiting in Noah’s days, while the ark was being constructed, in which a few people, that is, eight souls, were carried safely through the water.” (1 Peter 3:20) True, those outside Noah’s immediate household “took no note” of his preaching. (Matthew 24:38, 39) But by having Noah construct the ark and serve perhaps for several decades as “a preacher of righteousness,” Jehovah offered Noah’s contemporaries ample opportunity to repent of their violent ways and turn to serving Him. (2 Peter 2:5; Hebrews 11:7) The eventual destruction of that wicked generation was fully justified.

That's where the Nephilim came from, according to some.

Nephilim were a race of giants. They appeared both before and after the Flood, which destroyed everyone except Noah and his family.
Genesis 6:1-4 "Men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose".
"The Nephilim were on the earth in those days - and also afterward - when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown".
Genesis 7:23 "Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out; men and animals and the creatures that move along the ground and the birds of the air were wiped from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark".
Numbers 13:33 "We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them."
Who are the "sons of God" and the "Nephilim"? There are three interpretations:
1."Sons of God" refers to fallen angels who lived on earth and married human women. The Nephilim are giants of extra-human strength who were the offspring of these marriages.
2."Sons of God" refers to descendents of Seth, who were godly men who sinned by marrying descendents of Cain, who were pagans. The Nephilim were "heroes", not giants, and may have been the offspring of the mixed marriages.
3."Sons of God" is better translated as "kings" or "sons of nobles" and "Nephilim" is best translated as "princes" or "great men." That is, the "sons of God" were royalty or aristocrats who were generally immoral and married common women, possibly against their will or despite their already being married.
Arguments for view 1:
The phrase "sons of God" is used in Job 1:6 and 2:1 to describe angels, and early Jewish writers interpreted this passage as referring to angels.
In support of angels coming to live on earth and marriyng human women, Jude 6 refers to "angels who abandoned their own home." Other passages describe angels as being able to assume human form (Heb 13:2, Gen 19:1-3).
Numbers 13:33, describes Nephilim as giants.
Arguments against view 1:
"Sons of God" in Job refers to "good" angels, and distinguishes them from Satan, the fallen angel. Only fallen angels would be marrying humans, they wouldn't be referred to as "sons of God."
Mark 12:25 and Matthew 22:30 state that angels don't marry. (Supporters of this view respond that these passages say that angels don't marry in heaven, not that they can't marry on earth.)
Num 13:33 could be an exaggeration of faithless spies.
God seems to condemn mankind for the intermarrying in Gen 6:3, but says nothing about angels, though they were at least as responsible for it as the humans.
Arguments for view 2:
Humans are referred to as children of God in the Bible (Deut 14:1, Is 43:6, etc.)
Genesis 5 describes godly descendents of Seth (Enoch, Noah), while Lamech Cain's descendent, was also a murderer (Gen 4:23).
To support the "Nephilim weren't offspring of the marriages" view: Gen 6:4 doesn't say the Nephilim were offspring, only that they showed up at the same time the intermarriage was happening.
Arguments against view 2:
The Sethites don't sound godly, since only Noah and his family were spared from the flood. (However, "sons of God" may refer to generations previous to those whose sin brought about the flood.)
This interpretation requires that the phrases "men" and "daughters of men" have two different meanings within the same sentence. "Men" and "daughters of men" in v.1 would refer to all mankind and their daughters, but "daughters of men" in v. 2 would refer to Cainite women
Arguments for view 3:
Rulers referred to themselves as sons of God - Pharoah was called "son of Re."
The Hebrew words "sons of God" is Elohim, which is translated as "judge". (Ex 21:6, Ps 82:1)
Early translations of "sons of Elohim" rendered it as it as "sons of nobles" or "sons of kings"
"Nephilim" in Gen 6:4 is "gibborim", which means "mighty man of valor, strength, wealth, or power."
Arguments against view 3:
Pagans referred to royalty as sons of God, Israelites did not, nobles were not referred to as "sons of God."
There is no contradiction in the Nephilim appearing both before and after the Flood. Genesis 6:4 does say, "The Nephilim were on the earth in those days - and also afterward." If the Nephilim were giant offspring of humans and fallen angels, the fallen angels could come back after the Flood and have more offspring. If the Nephilim were heroes or nobles, society after the Flood could produce heroes and nobles just as well as society before the Flood.
