    He is right. Here's the Greek:



    But since this verse does not exist in a vacuum and builds up on the question to which Jesus was responding , namely as to why the man was born blind ("who...
  4. What precisely do you mean by that they are...

    What precisely do you mean by that they are “rational souls” and where does scripture say that is the case ? And how is this relevant to the definition of (human) death ?
  5. Let's look at the verses one at a time. Start...

    Let's look at the verses one at a time. Start with 1 Samuel 28:11 :

    Saul here has a human form, he is an old man wearing a robe. Are you saying that disembodied human spirits have bodies and...
  6. God’s intention was for Adam and Eve ( and by...

    God’s intention was for Adam and Eve ( and by extension the whole of humanity) to live forever as bodily creatures. Only when Adam sin did his body began to see corruption. Had Adam never sinned he...
  7. Genesis 2:7 does not say that though, that man...

    Genesis 2:7 does not say that though, that man became a living being because of “the spirit within us.” It says rather that the man became a living being as a result of God blowing “the breath of...
  8. I meant where are you getting that from the bible...

    I meant where are you getting that from the bible itself ?
  9. That's a strawman caricature. Man with the breath...

    That's a strawman caricature. Man with the breath of God is more than that, he is a living being (i.e. a being living -- that is, a being capable of emotions, of intelligence, of physical...
  10. The text of genesis 2:7 does not say that. So...

    The text of genesis 2:7 does not say that. So where exactly are you getting this from ?
  11. Genesis 2:7 speaks of "the breath of life" as ...

    Genesis 2:7 speaks of "the breath of life" as existing before God breathed it into Adam's nostrils. If you disagree , then you're severely eisegeting the text .
  12. That's NOT what the text says. Genesis 2:7 says...

    That's NOT what the text says. Genesis 2:7 says that God breathed the "breath of life" (something already existing) into the nostrils of the man, after which the man became "a living being." In...
  13. Genesis 2:7 does not allow for the "breath of...

    Genesis 2:7 does not allow for the "breath of life" to have been created in Adam's body. Rather the text says that God breathed "the breath of life" (something already existing) into the nostrils...
  14. Is Ecc. 12:7 referring to this “soul” when the...

    Is Ecc. 12:7 referring to this “soul” when the text says that it ( he?) returns to God ?
  15. (1) Genesis 2:7 does NOT say that God’s breath in...

    (1) Genesis 2:7 does NOT say that God’s breath in our nostrils becomes our spirit, but that God breathed into our nostrils the breath of life and the man becomes a living being. So the “living being”...
  16. (1) False This same “breath of life” which God...

    (1) False

    This same “breath of life” which God gave to Adam ( which you agree is NOT a thinking, feeling , rational entity) is said to leave the body and return to God in ECC. 12:7 —

    “Our...
  17. (1) So the soul of Adam was already a thinking,...

    (1) So the soul of Adam was already a thinking, feeling , rational entity before it entered the body of Adam. In other words it pre-existed his body. True or False ?

    (2) Do you recognize that...
  18. By the way, I don’t think you understood why the...

    By the way, I don’t think you understood why the following statement is nonsensical if we substitute the word “dead” for the words “The SPIRIT SEPARATED From The BODY”:

    “The body without the...
  19. Look at the following verse: Then the Lord...

    Look at the following verse:


    Then the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.

    The “breath of...
  20. Infact in Eccl. 12:6 it is clear that the...

    Infact in Eccl. 12:6 it is clear that the reference to the “Spirit” hints back to Genesis 2:7, to the “Breath of Life” from God and not to individual, disembodied human spirits :



    Genesis 2:7 ...
  21. Explain how either of those citations show that...

    Explain how either of those citations show that death is defined as the separation of the human spirit from the same human body ?
  22. The following...

    The following resource is on the right track with bold below:




    The apostle is saying that a body which is not breathing is "dead" (that is, it is broken, it is in a state of decay). He is...
  23. If “death” is defined as the separation of the...

    If “death” is defined as the separation of the spirit from the body please explain how the author could have used it in context to the body and the spirit in James 2:26 ? In other words, how does...
  24. One more thing I want readers to keep in mind is...

    One more thing I want readers to keep in mind is that I have carelessly used the English words “soul” and “spirit” interchangeably in James 2:26 , which I should not have done. The word used here is...
  25. In Matthew 27:52 we have the word “sleep”...

    In Matthew 27:52 we have the word “sleep” functioning as a SUBSTITUTE for the literal death which humans undergo. So “sleep” in this verse functions to clue us into how the apostle conceived of...
