Do we become angels when we go to heaven?

This is a very common myth that has been largely popularized by cartoons. In the after life, people are seen flying around with wings, carrying harps, and resting on clouds.

The Bible does say we will be like angels in some ways - the fallen angels like fallen man will be judged someday by God and for both there is no marital relationships in the eternal realm. Nowhere doses it say we will become angelic being. Although there are only brief descriptions of the roles humans and angels will have in heaven, the Bible never once mentions the two groups as being interchangeable.

"Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself" (Philippians 3:21).

"Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is" (1 John 3:2).
