Humans ARE souls

Soul = body + spirit

Genesis 2:7 KJV — And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

No. Things live and die, that's a;; there is to life @cee, please explain the location within the body do you find a soul. We are alive because we have lugs, heart and a brain. 0@ Roberta B, soul can only be just life, when do die your life is gone. @Ted, it is a fantasy, but a trick to cause the ignorant to stay in a religion and continue to be controlled. @Paul, nothing has reveled what you claim. @ Robert de. LMAO, and your answer to this question is as useful as all of your other answers; useful for nothing. Why do you need to bring  Misty into your nonsense? Now prove your claim, or STFU! @Misty, you are on a  roll, don't back away.

Yes, I do, but I believe in the Bible's rendering of soul, not human doctrines of the soul's immortality.

"Soul" is the traditional rendering of the Hebrew word neʹphesh and the Greek word psy·kheʹ. In examining the way these terms are used in the Bible, it becomes evident that they basically refer to (1) people, (2) animals, or (3) the life that a person or an animal has. (Ge 1:20; 2:7; Nu 31:28; 1Pe 3:20)

In contrast to the way that the term “soul” is used in many religious contexts, the Bible shows that both neʹphesh and psy·kheʹ, in connection with earthly creatures, refer to that which is material, tangible, visible, and mortal. 

Notice these scriptures, cited above, that use the Hebrew word neʹphesh and the Greek word psy·kheʹ where you see asterisks (*):

Genesis 1:20

20 Then God said: “Let the waters swarm with living creatures,* and let flying creatures* fly above the earth across the expanse of the heavens.” 

Genesis 2:7

7 And Jehovah God went on to form the man out of dust from the ground and to blow into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living person.* 

Numbers 31:28

28 As a tax for Jehovah, you should take from the soldiers who went out into the battle one soul* out of every 500, of the people, the herd, the donkeys, and the flock. 

1 Peter 3:20

20 who had formerly been disobedient when God was patiently waiting in Noah’s day, while the ark was being constructed, in which a few people, that is, eight souls,* were carried safely through the water.

So they didn't HAVE souls, they WERE souls.  It is not a separate thing that leaves the body and goes to heaven or "hell" (another mistranslated word).

What leaves the human body, according the Ecclesiastes 12:7, and Psalm 104:29-30 is the SPIRIT (Hebrew word ruʹach and the Greek word pneuʹma).  

Psalm 104 also state that angels are spirits, and Jesus in John 4:24 stated that God, his Father, is spirit. 

The spirit comes from God and makes the soul alive, and when it leaves, the person's thoughts perish.  Psalm 146:4 

The Hebrew word, neʹphesh, translated as "soul" in many Bibles, occurs about 750 times in the Bible, and it actually means “a breather.”  As mentioned before, animals as well as humans are SOULS.

Understanding these Bible facts as the original words render them, is important for us when recognizing what the soul, and the spirit are, and also so that we are not misled by pagan ideas of inherent immortality.  

The Egyptians believed in an immortal soul, and the elaborate tombs that they built are now objects of thievery for people who desire the gold and precious gems in them.

Our lives are dependent on God, NOT ourselves, and the soul that sins will DIE.  Ezekiel 18:4,20

I believe that God has an ideal "blueprint" of our ideal selves from which we are created.  I don't believe in a ghost in the machine, and there's evidence from the Bible that Jews and Christians are not supposed to believe that either.
2020-07-31 22:10:35 UTC
Yeah, me too!  In fact, I believe in a whole lot of things which totally lack any kind of empirical evidence.  For example: unicorns, chupacabras, mermaids, and talking snakes.  (And souls, of course.)
2020-07-31 16:49:44 UTC
Soul may just be a label or a human word, but everyone has the essence of God within them, otherwise we would not exist or have conscious thought of anything, The Bible eludes to God being LIGHT and you can see that illustrated even in science whenever we have an idea, a light bulb goes on in our brain, its an anthropomorphic illustration but still relevant to God that science has no problem using, science knows that Photon light exist with human DNA.
2020-07-31 13:33:56 UTC
Of course I do. God has clearly revealed that reality to us. I'm not about to tell Him He is wrong.
2020-07-31 09:28:19 UTC
No, I see no good reason to think that a soul exists. When people suffer from brain damage their personality can change.

Gov't is killing you with highfrequencyelectricity. Theotokos Virgin Mary gave prayers to "Schema-nun Antonia" on how to save aborted babies from hell. If you pray these prayers diligently, aborted babies are released from hell. On each painted nail there are forty demons. Smoking is censer to the devil.Using foul language calls upon Pagan deities (aka demons); Holy Spirit departs on seven meters. People who use drugs see demons who cleverly disguise themselves as ghosts and aliens.America will be last country to switch to Euro (antichrist's world currency). Contraceptives = abortion;using contraceptives for one year = five aborted kids.Miscarriages happen because of high heels; cesarean because of pants (second generation cesarean will be infertile).Unbaptized aborted/miscarried/unborn babies burn in hell until Final Judgement; if pregnant, keep the kid and deliver at home because kids are chippedusing IVs and vaccines in hospitals. Dentists and doctors chip patients secretly. Ultrasound leads to mark of the beast; don't do ultrasound, please. Abortion leads to breast cancer; a demon is released from hell for each aborted kid. Dogs can become possessed; don't keep dogs inside your home [Pelageya of Ryazan]. Walmart has technology to administer mark of the beast to those who have cat bacteria in their stomachs/brains; stay away from cats [Athanasius 3rd of Constantinople]. Next false flag is the Statue of Liberty. Above earth there is ice (dome); when rockets go up they bring ice down from upper sky to lower sky; ice stuck in lower sky will fall on us during Apocalypse. Earth is flat; earth stands on three stalactite pillars (The Most Holy Trinity); pillars stand on water at zero Kelvin; underneath this ice there is a bubble; and then the abyss. Zodiac is planetary prison of demons; don't believe in horoscopes or you'll exhibit the traits of the trapped demons. Most thoughts and dreamsare from demons; demons never do good. Sleep fully clothed; pray the Jesus prayer. Pray to your guardian angel to have normal sleep. Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov was the last prophet before Apostle John (who wrote the Book of Revelation), Enoch, Elijah, resurrected Seraphim of Sarov, and resurrected Sergius of Radonezh will preach against the antichrist. Humans were created about 7530 years ago. Birds participate in time creation. It's a sin to kill birds. Dinosaurs live under our level; they will get out through sinkholes and lakes; to kill them, go for their nerves. Save the birds; but kill the dinosaurs. First dinosaur will come out of Volga River in Russia. Scientists don't see dinosaurs under our level because of radiation. Sinkholes happen because people dig for resources underground and because earth is heating up. Demons grow human skin (from a sample taken during abduction) and put it on so as to look like us. Demons will invite people to be healed inside their UFOs; those who go will be like zombies after. Gov't provides demons with diamonds and allows demons to abduct people. If you're being abducted, slowly pray the Jesus prayer. Don't panic. Demons use diamonds and souls to power their UFO craft. The bigger the diamond, the more it lasts. Demons have 4 UFO bases: 1)moon 2)inside fake mountain Kailash (Tibet) 3)in lake Baikal in Russia 4)in Atlantis which is underneath double ocean floor of Mariana Trench (Pacific Ocean). There are no aliens. Nobody lives on other planets. Airplanes that go down are hit by demons because they need the airspace to fight Jesus. Antichrist is pale with red eyes. He's possessed by Satan since he's 12 years old [Lavrentiy Chernigovskiy]. He flies super fast; deceived people will say: "Christ is here; Christ is there" when he's flying from one city to the next very fast. He wears gloves to hide long nails. He'ssurrounded by demons who appear as angels of light. Antichrist will trick people that he can do mountain moving and resurrection using holograms/hypnosis; fire from the sky is real because of pollution gases in the atmosphere. Antichrist will have food only for 6 months; then he will feed his 666ed people flourfrom mashed up turtles (Tavrion Batozskiy), but this won't be enough because 666ed people are 10 times as angry and 7 times as hungry as normal people even though 666ed people became shorter (3-4 feet tall = 80 - 120 cm)because nanochips do function of organs (organs diminish) [Nilus Myrrhgusher]. If you have a lot of nanochips in your forearm, then you will not be able to make proper Orthodox sign ofthe cross (last mercy for you will be to cut yourforearm off). Nanochips are sprayed by the gov't usingchemtrails; they're also in gov't food andmedicine; so, eat food from your own garden. In case garden is destroyed by ice from the sky, have chickens for eggs and goats for milk (Paisios). Lipstick contains cells of abortedfetuses, dog fat, and placenta; human fleshis in McDonalds, Pepsi, toothpaste, antiaging,anticancer, vaccines, perfume, etc.; that's why you should not be using anything that modern society has to offer. You're better off hiding within a 10-15 people group in order to escape Apocalypse. During Apocalypse,Christians will eat dirt from under pussywillowtree as it's filled with tears of Theotokos VirginMary; this water will flee if a 666ed person tries to get it. Barcode is Druid black magic curse; QRcode is Mayan curse; when food is scanned, it becomes dead because laser is a substance from demons. Don't go into a UFO to be healed by demons. Unforgivablegreen666 is given by isotope rays on wrist or forehead when people stretch hands to receive small plastic grey card with no name on it (WorldPassport). It doesn't just have to be during this procedure (could be anything you sign up for or anywhere where there is a secret scanner); biometrics (fingerprints, eyescan) or getting picture for passport are very dangerous because they could mark you secretly. GabrielUrgebadze said thattheydoitonindexfingerwhenthey scan your finger. Basically, trytoavoidnewdocuments at all cost. Policewill microchip and isotope ray people on highways. Chipped people will be influenced by computers to take grey plastic card; but when they do, greenmark by isotope rays is given on forehead/wrist. Food stores will isotoperaypeopletoo. Antichrist will also release prisoners/insaneasylumpeople tomarkpeople. Reject 666 at all cost because it leads to permanent hell. If you're about to be marked, pray the Jesus prayer. Hide with OrthodoxChristians to escape 666; leave all electronics behind so that antichrist's minions can'ttrack you; burn documents because they're fromSatan. TheMostHolyTrinity gives you a name during baptism; devil gives an antiname during antibaptism (ex. SocialSecurityNumber). People who die with these Satanicdocuments go to concentrationcamp in hell to await FinalJudgement; once the BEASTComputer is burned down, souls will be released for FinalJudgement. That's why you should give back documents of your deceasedrelatives back to the gov't so that the gov't cancels these digital antichristiannames given during antibaptism by the beastsystem; or just burn thesedocumentsbecause gov't could get upset and could send demons to mark you because of this outright act of defiance. Prophecy from halfamillennium ago describes FinalJudgement like this: Jesus was very upset with people who had littleboards (plasticcards) in their hands because they wanted discount from the antichrist. Givetocharity in the name of ArchangelMichael; he rescues people from temporaryhell twice a year [at midnight September18-19 and similarly on November20-21; pray at these times on your knees remembering the deceased by names (adding "and relatives by flesh up to Adam") so that they arerescued if they're in hell] (or brings them up alevel, that is, to a level with lesspunishment;eventually, people arefreed). Feed thepigeons;when pigeons bowdown, people are savedfrom temporaryhell. It's a big sin to rememberthe deadwithwreaths (because demons put these wreaths on their necks if they're inhellwith theirwrists tied up behind their back while hanging by their wrists), meat,alcohol,sweets,andworldlymusic. Demons print icons of saints/crosses/8sidedstarofTheotokosVirginMary in newspapers/products so that you throw these newspapers/products in the trashblasphemingthesesaints. Crosses on solesofshoes and backofpants are blasphemy. Demons makecarpets with crosses and put them on sidewalks so that people walk on crosses. Playingcards mockhow Jesus sufferedonthecross: clubs(cross on which Jesus wascrucified), diamonds (fournails Jesus was crucified with), hearts (sponge with vinegar that Jesuswas given to drink),spades (spear with whichJesus waspierced).Cremationisdevilworship; onlyblasphemers suchasLenin should be burned; if Lenin is buried, earth will be polluted, and China will attack Russia because of this. AfterChinaattacksRussia, RuskiOrthodoxTsar (shown by resurrected SeraphimofSarov) willcome topowerinRussia;this Tsar will slay traitors inside Church and gov't; asaresult, Russia will be the only country not under the antichrist.Ecumenism=263heresies;each heresy leads to hell. In 2006 in Moscow (that's why Moscow will sink),representatives from most religions signed a document where it says that all religions worship the same SupremeBeing [aka thedevil]. Priests who participate in ecumenism will have Pagans walking on theirheads in hell.

The Bible does not teach that man HAS a soul but that man IS a soul.  So when man dies it is a soul that dies.

When God created Adam, Adam WAS a soul.  Genesis 2:7 explains how God did this.  The King James Version puts it this way.

"And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man BECAME a living soul."

So it took two things for Adam to become a soul.  First, the dust of the ground, second, the breath of life.  When these two things were combined Adam became a living soul.

That is just like water.  It takes two things, hydrogen and oxygen combined to make water.  It is not water until hydrogen and oxygen are combined.  So it is with Adam becoming a soul. He was not a soul until until God combined the dust of the ground and combined it with the breath of life.

When man dies and the breath of life returns to God who gave it, man ceases to be a soul, the soul (man) dies.  Just as Ezekiel 18:4 says, "Look! All the souls—to me they belong. As the soul of the father so also the soul of the son—to me they belong. The soul who sins is the one who will die."

At death, man (the soul) dies, ceases to exist except in God's memory.  God can resurrect those who have died when the resurrection that Jesus promised takes place.

But this is another story.  I would refer you to the official web site of Jehovah's Witnesses which is  You will find an abundance of audio/video articles to help you understand the Bible better.

animals have souls too. all do.
2020-08-01 07:55:09 UTC
God doesn't watch each and every human being at the same time and cannot live with each and everyone to guide them. These works are done by the spirits. God had created different kinds of spirits for various purposes. He had made the spirits to watch, guide and determine the destiny of the human beings from their daily activities, talks and thoughts too. Your past determines your present and your present determines your future. God has given freewill to all creatures including human beings. According to this, all human beings have all right to live a life as they wish. But if it happens to be bad and hurts someone, they have to face the consequences. These consequences are created by spirits. It's a natural system. After death no one lives in any form. Heaven and hell are only for spirits, not for human beings. God is a mystery even to the spirits. Spirits are not eternal beings but their lifetime is long. Spirits are separate elements. A human being during his/her lifetime is living with many spirits which have joined one by one since birth. They are knowledge, skills, feelings, emotions, interests and everything. These spirits are your consciousnesses and memories. Even thoughts are not your own. For example, when you want to take a decision on a subject, one after another the spirits think and you just listen, choose or reject the ideas which they transmit to your mind through your brain in the form of thoughts. Brain is just a media to connect the spirits to your mind. A mind is just a computer's mind. A mind is you. After the destruction of a computer completely you will not get it's mind. The same is the case with the human beings.  A human being doesn't have a spiritual body. Soul is nothing but an energy needed for the functionality of a body. It is not a spirit or anything else. A body's functionality is based on the auto mechanism.  After death all spirits which accompanied a person quit and go to different places searching new bodies. No one lives in any form after death. All human beings are just robots made of flesh and bones and toys of the spirits for their games.

I do, the soul isn’t a separate entity we are all souls. Have you ever gone to someone’s home and said there wasn’t a soul at home, that’s a truism supported by scripture- Ezekiel 18:4.
2020-08-01 00:59:17 UTC
The fact of the matter: Yes, The reason mankind has a soul is because we our the only species that prays to God, because we were created in the image and likeness of eternal God.

2020-07-31 19:40:00 UTC
I believe what the Bible teaches.

  In the Bible, "soul" is translated from the Hebrew nephesh and the Greek psykhe.

Bible usage shows the soul to be a person or an animal or the life that a person or an animal enjoys.

   To many persons, however, "soul" means the immaterial or spirit part of a human being that survives the death of the physical body. But this is not a Bible teaching.

Read Genesis 2:7; and  Ezekiel 18:4.
2020-07-31 19:18:49 UTC
SOUL- The original-language terms [Heb., ne'phesh; Gr., psy-khe'] as used in the Scriptures show "soul" to be a person, an animal, or the life that a person or an animal enjoys.  For example, Genesis 2:7 states: "Jehovah God proceeded to form the man out of dust from the ground and to blow into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man came to be a living soul."  Note that Adam did not HAVE a soul; he WAS a soul, just as someone who BECOMES a doctor IS a doctor.  The word "soul," then, can describe a whole person.
2020-07-31 17:42:41 UTC
The word "soul" was not translated by the King James writers. So, you have to look at the Greek. "Soul" means life. Intelligent life. Humans, dogs, cats, cows. It does not mean an existence beyond the grave.

PREMISE  : a SOUL requires BELIEF ,

belief does not DEMONSTRATE nor VERIFY a soul  it would be irrational for me to conclude  that SOULS exits rather a human  idea  proposal  proposition  thought  association  perpetuated by certain people SOUL word etymology " coming from the SEA" from old Norse "sala"

the Ancient Egyptians promoted the idea / CONCEPT of the soul called the KA/ba had multiple parts the human body called 'h" or " h,w and magic the PEOPLE  of ancient Egypt promoted the PROPOSITION IDEA    "the god ALUM created the world out of CHAOS, using his  MAGIC, when humans were created that MAGIC  Ancient Egyptians  BELIEVED    took the form of the SOUL

BELIEF : a persons CONVICTION of a proposition  or allegation  to be the case , actual without direct knowledge PROPOSITION a proposal  / suggestion / idea  for consideration

ALLEGATION :an assertion- claim  made with little or no PROOF

A person  can obtain KNOWLEDGE  of that which  is ACTUAL  ( independent  self evident  TESTABLE with consistent  repeatable result  , OBJECTIVE  without BIAS  BELIEF does not  supply that  KNOWLEDGE  rather  based on proposal  ideas 

BELIEF has a aspect  of EMOTIONAL CONDITIONED RESPONSE  ( association  stimulus - response  and THOUGHT  )  and  humans are  subject  compliance theory   thank you  for the question
2020-07-31 15:18:54 UTC
Genesis 2:7 says “Then the Lord God formed a man[a] from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.” (New International Version) Other translations say “became a living soul”. 

We read here that Adam BECAME a living soul or person. Not that he was “given a soul”.The belief about humans having an immortal soul did not come from God or the Bible. It originated in philosophy teachings from Ancient Greece. Sadly over the years false teachings have been blended with Christianity. 
2020-07-31 15:17:37 UTC
Jehovah God blew the breath of life into Adam and he became a human soul. we are the soul. read Gen chapter 2 verse 7 and it is also in the king james bible. when we die, our soul dies also

I have never seen any evidence for (or a compelling reason to infer) the existence of a 'soul' or any other part of what we think of as 'ourselves' that continues on after death.

'Near death experiences' are less than compelling - as they always seem to reflect (and cement) the preexisting religious beliefs of the individual, and they can't all be right.  They are also the 'experiences' of a person whose systems are dumping massive amounts of chemicals as their brain is slowly starved of oxygen.
2020-07-31 11:48:28 UTC
  @. Misty: You have no proof of what you say, your soul is your eternal existence, when you are in the other dimension your stupid answers will cease forever.

You know what?

I can tell you with such certainty that the soul of man and woman exists, because first of all God created it, and then, because I had a direct experience with God, when He took me from the ground, and made me stay in space for a few minutes, I saw my body from above, on earth.

God created mankind with a physical body, and with the Immortal soul, in essence the soul is inside his body, only in case of bodily death, the soul comes out of his body and goes into the ades, waiting for God's judgment.

2020-07-31 09:34:47 UTC
YES, a human being has a soul. Your soul is the most precious thing about you. When God created the Prophet Adam, at first he had no soul and was lifeless for many days until God breathed the soul into him, peace and blessings be upon him. The soul first began with his head, the head is the most honorable part of the body and most important. The soul entered the entire body completely. Afterwards, he shared his most intimate words with God for the first time in his intimacy with God, his relationship with God a close exchange of words. There's an interesting, short video about that and more depth if you want. See in youtube: "Few Facts About Adam s You May Not Know"
2020-07-31 08:56:50 UTC
On one hand, I have a body with blood, cells, nerves, brain, eyes—all of that. Then, distinctly inside of me, there is something that is allowing me to exist. The feeling that it brings is not only the feeling of being alive, but the feeling of being in peace. It brings the feeling of joy, of tranquility. There is something that stays untouched by everything that happens around me. I get affected by good days and bad days; the thing that is keeping me alive is apart from all of that. This is who I am. I’m not just my body, and I’m not just my accomplishments. I’m more. All of that put together is who I am.

Often the soul is equated with the total person. For instance, Genesis 2:7 tates: “God proceeded to form the man out of dust from the ground and to blow into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man came to be a living soul.” The first man, Adam, was a soul.

The understanding that the word soul can mean the whole person is supported by other scriptures. For example, the Bible speaks of a soul’s doing work. Leviticus 23:30 The soul is spoken of as being impatient, irritated, sleepless, fearful, and depressed. Judges 16:16

 Referring to a soul as a person, Romans 13:1 states: Let every soul be in subjection to the superior authorities.” And at 1 Peter 3:20, we read: “In Noah’s days, a few people, that is, eight souls, were carried safely through the water.”

 Nothing in these scriptures indicates that the soul is some immaterial entity that lives on after death.

Therefore, all living creatures are souls.  
2020-08-03 01:56:29 UTC
I do. But what happens after we pass on is anyone's guess.
2020-08-02 23:27:07 UTC
I believe in a soul. Not a physical something that exists in the body some place as Descartes described it, but the composite of a person. The soul is the person with all of his experiences, actions, and thoughts that the person was born with and that have accumulated over the years of a person’s life. The conscious life is an element that goes to make up the soul, but it alone is not the soul. If you take me apart, you’ll find pieces of matter that ultimately—according to physics—consisting of quarks, electrons, and gluons. Neither soul nor consciousness will be found. But if you want to find me, you’ll need to accept me in all of my complexity of who I am and what I have been.

So, the next question you’ll ask is whether the soul is immortal. Well, if you believe in God or even if you accept the concept of God, you’ll realize that if God wanted to preserve all of that information about me, then God certainly could. For those of you who think this is too unbelievable, I would ask if you believe that an electron can be in two places at the same time. Well, according to quantum mechanics which has never been proved to me wrong, it certainly cam. There’s much more to this, but space is limited.

There is no evidence for a soul, indeed, all the functions and features claimed for the 'soul' are now known, through experimentation, to be functions and features of the brain.

Well, all bar two. They are being detachable and living forever. They are know to be BS.

The soul is the subject of human consciousness and freedom; soul and body together form one unique human nature.

Each human soul is individual and immortal.

The soul does not die with the body, from which it is separated by death, and with which it will be reunited in the final resurrection.

We don't "have" souls, we 'are' souls.  The soul cannot be found anywhere in the universe because what is being sought, we already are.  The concept of the soul can be traced at least as far back as the ancient Sanskrit word 'atman'; which is described as a dimensionless, indivisible and indestructible, "part-and-parcel" of the 'Paramatman' (or 'Supreme Soul', i.e., 'God').

Commonly in the West, the soul is often mistaken for the spirit, or taken to be interchangeable.  The spirit is distinct from the soul, in that it has dimensionality.  The idea that of the soul as something of substance likely comes from the Greek translation of 'atman' to the word 'atmos' (air, breath, spirit), which became the word we know in English as 'atom' (or 'indestructible').
2020-07-31 21:35:50 UTC
Yes.  The soul is the eternal  part of a person.

Yes.  The soul is the life principle within the body that cannot die on its own.  We are souls in a body of flesh and blood.  Strangely, it is the soul that will be judged at the resurrection. " For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul."  Lev. 17:11

We all have this very tender spot within us that hides itself most of the time as it doesn't want the exposure in a world where most argue that such a thing even exists.  It will hide at the slightest breeze it feels against its delicate being.  But it is in there.  Just hard to find.

Of course not - there's no such thing as a soul. That's just more magical hoo-hah for gullible people who'll believe in any nonsense you tell them.

Yes. We are all comprised of body, soul and spirit.

Do you know where you are going when you die? The Bible is very clear that no one can earn their way to heaven since good works do not pay for sins. See Gal. 2:16, Rom. 3:23-28, 4:4-5, Eph. 2:8-9, Tit. 3:5. The only way to heaven is by believing in Jesus for His free gift of eternal life. Jesus shed His blood on the cross as the full payment for our sins. He did all the work; all He requires of us is that we believe in Him.

Because we have all sinned against a perfectly holy and righteous God, we all deserve eternal separation from God in hell (Rom. 6:23). However, God loves us so much that He sent His only Son Jesus to die on the cross as our Substitute so we don't have to go to hell. Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose from the grave three days later (1 Cor. 15:3-4). He gives eternal life freely to anyone who simply believes in Him for it. No one can be saved by doing good works. Salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone (Eph. 2:8-9).

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life" (John 6:47).

The original Christians believed that the heart was doing the thinking.

In the 17th century, it was discovered that the heart was a blood pump.

The Church just dropped that and said the soul lives in the brain instead.

Neither exist.

Your consciousness should be enough for you.

Yes, I believe in the soul. But unfortunately we think we have a soul, we don’t realize that we are the soul. Consider a ring - a ring thinks it has gold. The ring doesn’t realize it doesn’t have gold; it is gold. If we remove gold from a gold ring, nothing remains. It disappears. So do we. When the soul leaves us, there is no breath, there is death. We disintegrate into the elements of nature. When will we realize that we are the divine energy, the soul? We are the very soul that we believe we have.

 I cannot believe or disbelief anything unless you 1st define what it is

so what do YOU mean by a "soul"
2020-08-03 09:34:50 UTC
The original-language terms (Heb., neʹphesh [נֶפֶשׁ]; Gr., psy·kheʹ [ψυχή]) as used in the Scriptures show “soul” to be a person, an animal, or the life that a person or an animal enjoys.

The New Catholic Encyclopedia says: “Nepes [neʹphesh] is a term of far greater extension than our ‘soul,’ signifying life (Ex 21.23; Dt 19.21) and its various vital manifestations: breathing (Gn 35.18; Jb 41.13[21]), blood [Gn 9.4; Dt 12.23; Ps 140(141).8], desire (2 Sm 3.21; Prv 23.2). The soul in the O[ld] T[estament] means not a part of man, but the whole man—man as a living being. Similarly, in the N[ew] T[estament] it signifies human life: the life of an individual, conscious subject (Mt 2.20; 6.25; Lk 12.22-23; 14.26; Jn 10.11, 15, 17; 13.37).”—1967, Vol. XIII, p. 467.

The Roman Catholic translation, The New American Bible, in its “Glossary of Biblical Theology Terms” (pp. 27, 28), says: “In the New Testament, to ‘save one’s soul’ (Mk 8:35) does not mean to save some ‘spiritual’ part of man, as opposed to his ‘body’ (in the Platonic sense) but the whole person with emphasis on the fact that the person is living, desiring, loving and willing, etc., in addition to being concrete and physical.”—Edition published by P. J. Kenedy & Sons, New York, 1970.

The first sermon on the immortality of the soul was given by Satan -- Genesis 3:4,5. Directly contradicting God's testimony that the soul that sins, it shall die -- Ezekiel 18:4, a fact God told Adam and Even (Genesis 2:17 -- the original seems to suggest the correct translation here is 'dying ye shall dying.' In other words, to eat the forbidden fruit meant to begin the process of dying). In the Bible the word "soul" in both the Hebrew and the Greek is the same word used for life, or living. In Genesis 2:7, if you read the creation story of Adam, God formed man from the dust of the ground (his body) and breathed into him the breath of life (ruach, the same word used to be translated 'spirit,' so 'breath of life' and 'spirit' are synonymous). But notice back in Genesis 2:7, THEN Adam BECAME a living soul (nefesh chai). In other words, it was the combination of a body and breath of life that made A soul. Adam was a soul, he didn't have a soul. When the breath of life leaves the body, the soul ceases to exist and enters into the sleep of death, until the first or second resurrections (John 5:28, 29). It's like having a light bulb. If you combine it with electricity, you have a light. But if you cut the electricity off, where does the light go? It doesn't go anywhere, it just ceases to exist. It was the Greek concept of soul that influenced what most people today believe, but it isn't the Word of God.

Genesis 2:7 teaches that man is a soul.

No , I believe in a body that the human soul has temporarily so that we can learn important lessons through practical experience and interaction.

Yes i believe in soul.I also believe that birth and death is of human body but the soul remain live forever.

Personally I believe what the scriptures say about the soul. The term is used in many ways, but in regards it being a separate part of the body that lives on eternally, that's something the Bible doesn't teach. One of the ways 'soul' is defined is that of a living being, and not something immortal within the being, for Jehovah God stated that the soul that sins will die. (Ezekiel 18:4) Also, in regards those going to Heaven, apostle Paul noted that they had to 'put on' immortality. (1 Corinthians 15:53) If humans were born with immortality already, this statement would be unnecessary. Those that are able to live forever on the Earth can only do so if they exercise faith in the ransom Jesus gave. (John 3:16) These are the righteous that will be living forever on Earth, in which all evil people will have been destroyed. (Proverbs 2:21 & 22; Psalms 37:10, 11, 28 & 29) All the innocent people(those that did NOT go to Heaven...), as well as those that died before knowing who Jehovah God was, will be resurrected back to life on Earth in the future. (John 5:28 & 29; Acts 24:15)

There is NO verifiable evidence for any kinda god critter

Let alone a soul thingie.

2020-07-31 10:36:26 UTC
Yes, I do believe in souls.

But I believe the scriptural teaching that humans *are* souls, not that they *have* a separate spirit that lives on after death.

Ezekiel 18:4: "Look! All the souls—to me they belong. As the soul of the father so likewise the soul of the son—to me they belong. The soul that is sinning—it itself will die."

(KJ, AS, RS, NE, and Dy render it “the soul.” Some translations say “the man” or “the person.”)
2020-07-31 09:28:20 UTC
No, the facts show that souls don't exist.
2020-07-31 08:56:55 UTC
Yes, absolutely 🙂  Without a soul, a human body is just a robot covered with skin.
