Do You Have An Immortal 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?).

What Does The Word Of God Really Say About The "Soul"?

The "soul" is a physical creation:


"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)

"Did not He that made me in the womb make him?" (Job 31:15 KJV)

The Holy Bible always speaks of spirit and soul as 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)

"For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit" (Hebrews 4:12 KJV)

The soul of man is man. Man is mortal. The "soul" is mortal - and subject to death.

"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)

"The soul that sinneth, it shall die." (Ezekiel 18:20 KJV)

"Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell [see Where Is Hell?], neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption" (Acts 2:27 KJV)

"And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people" (Acts 3:23 KJV)

"Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death" (James 5:20 KJV)
