///Leon:...BTW, "spirit body" is an oxymoron...---jerry6593 on 10/27/15///

Jerry: I recently read, "Common sense is like deodorant. The people that need it most never use it!"

Some people wrongly say the term "ground pilot" is an oxymoron. They assume all pilots fly in the sky & completely ignore the fact that anyone who drives a bus, truck, taxi or POV can, in a very real sense, be called a ground pilot versus being called a sky pilot. Such is your problem with the term "spirit body". You erroneously think if it's not physically formed it has no substance (body) at all.

Again, Jesus said: Luke 16: 19-31. I choose to believe Him, the Truth, who tells nothing but the truth!
---Leon on 10/27/15


///...Leon Saying I am wrong does not prove it. Your point is that this is literal real event passage. [?]

My point is that it doesn't work because if you make it literal then it is impossible since only one person could fit on the bosom of Abraham. [?]

Along with the other points I made. You did not counter the points. Explain why I am wrong. Explain why Jesus did raise the man Lazarus and the words of the parable were fulfilled. [?]

Leon:

Joh 20:17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not, for I am not yet ascended to my Father

Do you believe Jesus or not?

BTW, "spirit body" is an oxymoron.

/The soul of man is in a sense proper to itself immortal.\-Augustine, 4th c.

Who do you believe? Augustine or the Bible?


---jerry6593 on 10/27/15


Dear Micha I have found many good thoughts in the early Church fathers. But they are not the final authority.

Scripture is the final authority.

Leon Saying I am wrong does not prove it. Your point is that this is literal real event passage.

My point is that it doesn't work because if you make it literal then it is impossible since only one person could fit on the bosom of Abraham.

Along with the other points I made. You did not counter the points. Explain why I am wrong. Explain why Jesus did raise the man Lazarus and the words of the parable were fulfilled.

/By these things, then, it is plainly declared that souls continue to exist, that they do not pass from body to body, that they possess the form of a man, so that they may be recognised, and retain the memory of things in this world, moreover, that the gift of prophecy was possessed by Abraham, and that each class [of souls] receives a habitation such as it has deserved, even before the judgment.\-Irenaeus, 1st century
/...that there is some determinate place called Abrahams bosom, and that it is designed for the reception of the souls of Abrahams children...\-Tertullian, 3rd c.

///...since Abraham has a body only one person can be in Paradise...Lazarus. [?] You [can't] fit millions of bodies on...Abraham. [?]...Where did Jesus say [spirits] have bodies? Also you [haven't] explained the...bible verses... presented. Ignoring them [doesn't] make them go away. [?!]...---Samuelbb7 on 10/26/15///

Sam: God gave us minds (souls) to logically "discern" (reason) true & false, right & wrong. Jesus saying they could see each other, could talk to each other, had fingers, could thirst, etc., implies they had spirit bodies.

I don't know what you're trying to say about Abraham, Lazarus & millions of other people (???!) & your blitz of Bible verses doesn't support your ideas.
---Leon on 10/26/15


Jerry: Obviously, there's a gulf set between your understanding & mine. You don't believe what Jesus said (Luke 16:19-31) is literally true. I DO. You don't believe Abraham's bosom was in Paradise (Garden of Eden), in Hades. I DO! You don't believe when Jesus was dying on the cross that he told the thief he would literally, "that very day" (not at some future date), be with Him in Paradise. I BELIEVE!

You referenced Luke 16:31. Well sir, a far more hellish place to be in is DENIAL, i.e., not believing what the "Word of God" (Jesus) said then & is saying today. That's where you're at Jerry.
---Leon on 10/26/15


Leon you got me. I used the wrong word. I meant synonym.

So since Abraham has a body only one person can be in Paradise that is Lazarus. You cannot fit millions of bodies on the Body of Abraham.

You did not dispute my other points you just say they are wrong. Why?

Where did Jesus say Spirits have bodies?

Also you have not explained the many bible verses Jerry and I have presented. Ignoring them does not make them go away.

---Samuelbb7 on 10/26/15


Leon: "Jerry: I believe what Jesus said in the Bible. You obviously don't."

Now let's not get ugly Leon. You say that Jesus meant that He would be in Paradise with the thief that very day. That belief is based solely on the placement of a comma which occurred over a thousand years after Jesus spoke the words. In fact, Jesus DID say the following only 2 days later:

Joh 20:17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not, for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father, and to my God, and your God.

Obviously, Jesus did NOT go to Paradise on the day YOU claim He did. Do you believe Jesus or not?


---jerry6593 on 10/26/15


Sam: A simile (figure of speech)? You're trying to square peg a round hole over n over...hoping to eventually get a right result from a wrong application.

Gen. 2:7 is plainly worded & means exactly what it says, i.e., God formed man's physical body from the dust of the ground. God then gave man His breath (spirit) that made man to become "in God's likeness". The spirit of God in man gave life (mobility) & mental awareness (soul) to Adam's flesh.

Your whole argument stands on an opinion that spirits don't have bodies so therefore they can't touch or thirst, etc. Nonetheless, Jesus said they do & Jesus never lied. We can't fully comprehend how that's possible, but Jesus said it is. NO LIE!
---Leon on 10/25/15




Genesis 2:7
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.

The word and is a simile for plus. So yes the Bible says body and breath/spirit is a soul.

This is one of many verses I have shown.

On Luke 16

Look and read it again. The men have bodies and can touch water. One rests on the chest of a man who has a body. So how many men can rest on his chest? How would a drop of water help a person burning in fire? Latter Jesus did resurrect Lazarus and the leaders did not believe just like Jesus prophesied it in this Parable. Which many have recognized for centuries.

Agape
---Samuelbb7 on 10/25/15


Jerry: I believe what Jesus said in the Bible. You obviously don't. You can certainly choose to believe what you want however wrong. Like so many people, you cherry pick Scripture for what appeals to you & reject what you find unappealing. That's very unfortunate, but is your choice.

When Jesus told the thief on the cross he'd be with Him, that day, in Paradise was Jesus talking about an unconscious nonexistence in the grave or a "conscious" existence somewhere else? Was that also a fictional story Jesus made up (while agonizingly dying on the cross) to make a point? Really? When has Jesus (GOD) ever not told the TRUTH?! :/
---Leon on 10/25/15


The Apostle Paul wrote:
2 Tim 4:6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.

The word "departure" is the Greek word analusis (an-al'-oo-sis). It means departure or exodus.

Paul is stating that his soul and spirit will exit his body and go to be with Christ.

Our death is just like going through a door marked exit. God's people don't die they simple go to be with Christ which is far better!!!

Lord bless those with ears to hear.
---trey on 10/25/15


Leon: Your belief in the continuity of consciousness by spooks is a myth rooted in pagan spiritualism. The parable of the rich man and Lazarus is just that - a parable. Although many try to use this parable to prove innate spook immortality, they characteristically miss the context of the parable, namely,

Luk 16:31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

Jesus claims that the dead will be raised at the last day.

Joh 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

Man is not immortal.

1Ti 6:16 [God] Who ONLY hath immortality

///Leon: ...you believe that there is some part of humans that remains alive and conscious after death...I don't think that a mind can function without a brain. There is also the problem that the Bible says that "the dead know not anything" (Ecc 9:5)...---jerry6593 on 10/21/15///

Jerry: You seem to be trying very hard not to understand. Jesus taught that when the physical body dies "there is a part of humans that remain alive" (Luke 16:19-31). Unlike you, I don't think a physical brain can function without a spirit/soul (mind). Fact is, the brain dies when the conscious spirit/soul exits the body. Correct, the physical, vacated brain "knows nothing" after death. But, the spirit/mind is very much aware...
---Leon on 10/22/15


Sam: Jesus specifically said Lazarus was physically "dead".
That fact was painfully obvious to Martha, etc. (Jn. 11:14, 39). Martha logically assumed her brother's body would be stinking after 4 days in the grave. I believe Jesus performed yet another miracle, probably overlooked by many, & kept Lazarus's body from decaying.

You seem to think that a person's spirit/soul remain in the physical body at death. That's not what Jesus taught (Lk. 16:19-31).

True, Jesus brought Lazarus BACK to life. He did so by recalling (Jn. 11:43) Lazarus's spirit/soul "back" from Abraham's bosom to once again fill, occupy & operate (reboot/AWAKEN) his dormant (SLEEPING) body.

Sam: Respectfully, the difference between our views is I say what Scripture says based upon my reading & understanding of it. You, however, take Scripture out of context by presenting pretext to prove what you think is true. For example, G2:7 does not say the body combined with spirit becomes the soul.

Leon: If I understand you correctly, you believe that there is some part of humans that remains alive and conscious after death. Is that correct? That part (I would guess) is what you call the soul/mind. I don't think that a mind can function without a brain. There is also the problem that the Bible says that "the dead know not anything" (Ecc 9:5). A mind without knowledge is severely limited.

Sam: For whatever reason, you're not understanding that we humans are "tri-entity" beings. We are 1.) spirit/breath 2.) soul/mind & 3.) physical body.

Dead means being separated from Life (Jn. 14:6) A dead spirit goes to hell (with soul in tow) whereas a dead physical body goes to the grave (is dormant: asleep). It seems your focus is more on the physical body, which is no more than outer garment for your spirit man. We are spirits that live in a physical body & have souls (minds).
---Leon on 10/20/15


No Leon and Trey you have not given proof of your points.

We need to take all scripture into account.

Leon you say a person is dead and then you say they are alive in hell. They are mutually exclusive after the body dies. We can be dead spiritually in sin. But if our body is alive then we are not dead.

But as Jerry points out when we are dead then we are asleep as the Bible says. John 11:14.

---jerry6593 on 10/20/15


Jerry, you do understand that God destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah with fire? Please also note the word "eternal" meaning without end.

I believe as Matthew 25:46 states, that the wicked suffer eternally (everlasting) fire.

Are you so brainwashed that you cannot take into account all the scriptures?

In order to understand scripture one must first believe what it says.

trey: "how in the world do you interpret this verse?"

Jud 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.


Leon: "sin polluted "breath (spirit/soul) of God" dies"

Scripture does not support this theory. Instead,

Ecc 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

---jerry6593 on 10/18/15


Is Eternity an extension of time, or something completely different from time?
---santimoy.kumar on 10/17/15


Jerry: Everyone who isn't eternally alive in Jesus (the One who made everything & everyone) is eternally (forever) dead (that is to say separated, "cast away" from God) in their sin. Whereas it took Jesus (God) a few hours on the cross to die a "firey agony (soul searing pain)" as penalty for our sins, apparently it takes forever to purge lost souls of sin?

God has no beginning nor end. He is eternal, He is immortal. Does not that also apply to His breath that was breathed into man? The real question here is do you think the sin polluted "breath (spirit/soul) of God" dies or does He reclaim it thru the process of purging filth out in the Lake of Fire?

BCV, please.

This error in doctrine has allowed many to see our Loving Heavenly Father as tyrannical, unjust, and downright mean.

As my question posed, something must cease to live in a death. Death means a lack of life. God is life and we can say that death is a lack of God, but we must not redefine the word death in a way that fits our doctrine.

Everyone uses Matt 24:56 to say, look here Jesus tells us about the eternal punishment of the wicked. But the Greek word interpreted as punishment also can mean penalty.

Eternal penalty says to me that the penalty of death lasts for all time.

"you were dead in trespasses and sins" (in Ephesians 2:1)

"But she who lives in pleasure is dead while she lives." (1 Timothy 5:6)

So, yes a person can be "dead" while conscious and suffering because of being in sin.

In sin a person is love-dead, like Satan who is quite conscious but horrible in the selfish and evil "spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience" (in Ephesians 2:2).

So, our eternal life involves how we are alive in God's own love (Romans 5:5). But Satan and his are alive in what is not the eternal love life of Jesus.

As I, except I study the whole Bible.

Are you suggesting that God was lying to Adam and Eve when He told them they would surely die if they ate from the tree of knowledge?
In addition, you have to be believe in satan instead of God because satan told them they wouldn't die.

Since satan is the father of lies a quote by Jesus Himself, you are believing in the wrong being.

You see God was talking about physical death not the soul.

Sam: Mortal means we're "death doomed", lost, cut-off from God IF we live & die in unrepentant sin. Rev. 16:3, Jas. 5:20 & Ez. 18:4 all address what happens to "LOST (not born-again) SOULS". Yes, THEY DIE (perish) in the sense that they're eternally separated from God, first in Hell & later in the Lake of Fire.

We've all known people who've died (given up the ghost/spirit) & been said to have "passed away" OR been referred to as the dearly "departed" OR having "breathed one's last breath".

Soul dying/death means it has "departed" (consciously left, spirited out of) the physically dead body...

Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

Ezekiel 18:4
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.

The Bible states souls die.

Yes, Joseph, always be true to yourself.

No a soul can't die.

The soul is the part that is made in the Image of God.

Immortal.

Now in hell is when a soul wishes it can die.

As Jesus said in Matthew 26:24
But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born."

Now if a soul could die, Jesus would have said
'he would wish he would die immediately.'

Proof a soul never dies.

Conditionalism is the Belief that souls can and will die.

Thank you for the verse Josef.

Most Christians believe the soul cannot die in spite of the fact the Bible says it can and that humans are mortal.

Job 4:17
Shall mortal man be more just than God? shall a man be more pure than his maker?

Read I Corinthians 15.

Micha the state before the resurrection is one where all sleep. The final death of the wicked called the second death has not happened yet. Born once die twice, Born twice die once.

Revelation 2:11 20,6,14 21:8

Yes Santimoy, I believe and therefore I have spoken. If I do not warn the wicked of their impending death, knowing the truth, I will be held responsible. However if I do, and they turn to The Christ to receive His gift of eternal life. Then I will have been instrumental in saving a soul from death. Eze 3:18,19>James 5:20

Yes, josef, I understand that some Christians believe that.

From the Adventist website, Waking Up to Eternity, Point 3: "...The image of sleep emphasizes that death is not the end, but is rather an unconscious state prior to the resurrection..."
Apparently a soul does not die.
