A Race Of "Soul-less Monsters"?
by Wayne Blank
What Does The Bible Actually Say About The "Soul"?
The English word soul is used to translate two original words of the Old Testament and New Testament. The Hebrew word pronounced nay-fesh, which literally means a breathing creature, is variously translated as soul, life, person, mind, heart, creature, body, himself, yourselves, dead, will, desire, man, themselves and appetite. The Greek word pronounced psoo-kay, which literally means life's breath or breathing, is variously translated as soul, life, mind and heart. According to the Holy Scriptures, a soul is a living, breathing creature that eventually dies. Nowhere in The Holy Bible can be found an "immortal soul" - it simply isn't there (see What Happens When You Die?).
How And Where Are Souls Created?
"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." (Genesis 2:7 KJV)
Spirit And Soul Separate
"And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ" (1 Thessalonians 5:23 KJV)
Can Souls Die? According To The Word of God, Yes
"Behold, all souls are Mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is Mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die" (Ezekiel 18:4 KJV)
Fact Finder: Did Jesus Christ have a soul? Was Christ's soul "sorrowful" (that is, was He sorrowful) as it (that is, He) was about to die?
