So do you believe that the soul doesn't depart from the body after death?
The soul cannot exist without the body, but is not itself a body.
In the Bible, Gensis 2:7 states, '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.'
I disagree with part of what you said said Plato. I believe the soul has two capacities. Through the first capacity, the soul ascends to the heights, where it expereinces God. The second capicity disputes what you just said. It takes possession of the whole body in which it exists, in order to achieve its own work by means of that body. For the soul rejoices at being able to achieve things with the body.
My opinion is that I thought that our souls was something that left out bodies, but I was never clear on its functions. Recently, I acquired some knowledge about souls and so because of the information I found, I am not sure that I believe in souls at all.
I care to disagree because everything living is born of death. Meaning that our souls existed before we were born and will continue to exist after we die. After we die the soul is pleased to be released from the body after death because all the wrong man does.
AWell then if that's the truth, how do we have our own individual souls?
So from what I am hearing, everything is born of death?
P We don't have our own individual souls because we receive the soul of a person who has previously died. Our soul is never ours, even though ti has the desire to be in its bodily form.
Yes, that is correct.
I totally disagree. We are different human beings because we have different compounds made of form and matter with our own individual soul, not preexisting before we were born.
Hildegard, how can base your whole premise on a book that is written by group of men that were inspired by someone who is unseen (God).
Because it's based on faith and everyone has faith in something, even if it is not God.
My thoughts on the soul is all faith based, our soul is alive because it feels the same things as the body does such as Happiness and torment. Physical death does not end our life , We Are Immortal Living Souls waiting for the Return of God, if we live a prosperous life according to his word we will live an eternal life with him.
I heard those old people over there talking about what a soul is. What is your opinion on souls?
After over hearing their conversation, I have a better understanding of what a soul is. Although I still may be a bit confused on what I believe. I do believe that humans have souls and that it departs from the body after we die to ascend to Heaven.
