People come into this world and a lot of them arrive at the conclusion, or better said, they arrive at the big questions, those questions being: Why am I here? Who am I? and Where am I going? And of course, most people would say, “You are a human being, get on with it, don’t worry about all that stuff or you’ll end up becoming some kind of religious nut!” So yes, a lot of people don’t do deep because they are afraid of what they might find. And what do you find when you decide to do deep? Well, you find all of this religious text that talks about man as being both body and spirit and so you find yourself happy with this conclusion because the general conclusion is that the most important part of you is your spirit and not your body and the idea…

  1. Here is an interesting article about soul and spirit that might be of interest to you or others that follow your blog, it’s quite long but worth the read.

  2. Great post.

    To add to this, I have also found that to drive this home and make it even easier and clearer when I teach on this topic, to explain our soul is our mind, will,and emotions, and we are meant to be governed by our spirit-being who is taking orders from the HS within our spirit-being.

    When we leave our physical body, our “soul” remains intact because it is comprised of our mind, will, and emotions, which came into existence, as you cite, when God breathed His Spirit into our carnal body.

    Hope this helps someone.

    Great teaching!!

    Thanks for teaching on this.
