    The Life and the Blood

    The souls were under the altar. The altar is where the sacrifices took place. There were sacrifices everyday, so the ground under the altar would be saturated with blood. Consider what Moses wrote. KJV Leviticus 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon...

    The Life and the Blood

    I didn't say that. I said the idea that the dead are alive came from the Greeks. The Pharisees believed in the Resurrection, not that there was some sort of disembodied being that existed between death and the Resurrection. Did Jesus believe in life after death? He told the thief of the cross...

    The Life and the Blood

    There's nothing in Scripture that says that the soul returns to God. Regarding Rev. 6:9, remember, Revelation is a book of symbolism. Jesus is portrayed as a Lamb with seven eyes that had been slain. We know that Jesus was person, not a lamb. We also know that He had two eyes, not seven. There...

    The Life and the Blood

    It's not contradicting it at all. The soul is the whole being, the body and the spirit. When the body and the spirit are combined, together they form the soul. If the spirit is taken away their is no longer a soul. Consider water. If you combine two hydrogen atoms with an oxygen atom, you have...

    The Life and the Blood

    Christianity doesn't teach that people are alive after they die. Some Christians teach that, but it's not from the Bible. I comes from Greek Philosophy. In Jesus' day Plato's philosophy was popular among the Greeks. Plato said that the soul would continue on after death and ascend through the...

    The Life and the Blood

    It's the spirit that returns to God. The soul ends. It's the life of the person. When a person dies the life ends. There are quite a few places where the Nephesh and psuche are translated life.

    The Life and the Blood

    I'm not sure what you mean. After someone dies they're dead.

    The Life and the Blood

    Hi for_his_glory, I agree with part of what you wrote. That the body returns to the dust and that the body+ the breath/spirit of God=the soul. I disagree about the spirit. I see that the spirit or breath is God's, not man's. As I understand it there is no "human spirit". Remember, the word is...

    I don't believe you'll find that in the Scriptures.

    The Life and the Blood

    I disagree that we can't know from the Bible alone. Theologians study the Bible. It doesn't mean they understand it correctly. Anything we can't know from the Bible is speculation. Theologians are one of the reasons we have so many denominations. Obviously someone is wrong. So, just because one...

    The Life and the Blood

    The soul isn't part of the brain. It's the life of man. the body without the spirit isn't a soul any longer.

    The Life and the Blood

    There aren't two ways to look at a man if we're going by the Scriptures. Gen 2:7 tells us that God created the man from the dust of the earth. So, man consists of the dust or elements of the earth. That's all. Nothing else is mentioned. We're then told that God breathed His breath or spirit into...

    The Life and the Blood

    The soul is the person. According to Gen 2 the soul is the body and the breath or spirit of God combined. However, the word Nephesh, soul, is also translated as life. 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...

    The Life and the Blood

    Wondering, you said, "This is because the life of man is in the blood." In the passage I quoted the word life is the word soul. It's nephesh in Hebrew and psuche in Greek. You said the life of man is in the blood. That is correct and what the Bible says. You then said the soul is a component of...

    The Life and the Blood

    What's interesting is that it says the soul is in the blood. The word translated life is actually the word nephesh, soul. 4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. 5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I...

    The Gospel continues to be misunderstood

    Sure it is. The idea that works play no role in salvation is a Reformation doctrine not a Biblical one. Those who hold that idea are always trying to redefine words to make them fit the doctrine. As Paul writes, 'he became the author of eternal salvation to those who obey'.

    The Gospel continues to be misunderstood

    I don't know of anyone today who would argue that Christians must keep the Law of Moses in order to be saved. So, that argument is out the window. There is another argument in which people conflate one's good deeds with the Law in the Bible. In the Bible, the Law is the Mosaic Law. It is not...

    The Gospel continues to be misunderstood

    You've contradicted yourself. In the the first number 5 you said one is saved by faith alone in Christ and not by works of righteousness. Then in the second 5 you said repentance is necessary for salvation. Repentance is a righteous work.
