T H E SOUL

1. When God made Adam He called him a living soul. Gen. 2:7.

2. Adam became a living soul only when God breathed into him the breath of life. Gen. 2:7. 

3. "Soul" therefore means an individual, or any living being.  Gen. 17:14; Lev. 5:4; Lev. 17:10; Rev. 16:3.

4. If "soul" means a living being, then it can die.  Gen. 27:4; Num. 9:13; Ps. 89:48; Eze. 18:4.

5. Since "soul" means breath, when a man dies the breath "goes" back to God.  Gen. 35:18. Ecc. 12:7;

6. "Immortal" means living forever.  Only God is immortal.  1Tim. 6:16; Deut. 33:27; Ps. 90:2;

7. Human beings will be given immortality only when Jesus returns the second time.  1Cor. 15:52-55; Rom. 2:6, 7; 2Tim. 1:10.

8. If only God is immortal, then it is wrong to say that the "soul" is also immortal.  1Tim. 6:16.

9. If the soul is not immortal, then it can die, for it simply means an individual.  Rev. 16:3; Eze. 18:4.

10. "Soul" and "spirit" both mean breath, life, or in other words, an individual.  Job 12:10; Job 27:3; Is. 42:5.
