The Truth.. Our souls

Friday, September 11, 2009

In yesterday's blog, I mentioned that thru the Bible, God allows us understanding about our true essence-our soul. Many religions nowadays study about the soul but there is not a clear cut uniformity in the teachings of the soul. In Romans 6:23,".. the wages of sin is death . Because of sin, we all face the inevitable; whether rich or poor, tall or short, blue or brown eyed. Since death touches each and everyone one of us at one point in our lives, then what sin did we commit? where did we commit it? And what does our sin have to do with our soul? By studying about our souls thru the Bible, God allows us a clear understanding of where our souls actually came from and where we are going.
To understand this, in the book of Genesis 2:7, it reads, 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. Here we see that God made a living being out of two specific elements: dust of the ground and breath of life. As a result of these two elements, man became a living being. Apparently, we living beings are not literally made of dust but just like dust that you can see, smell and touch, what on us shares the same characteristics???? Our body! Then what about the breath of life? If you think about an impending rain storm, you will first see the trees swaying helplessly. What is causing the trees to sway? The wind, right? But, do you see the wind? Do you feel the wind? Then, just like the wind, that you cannot see but you know it is there, what in us shares the same characteristics??? Our soul! When the inevitable (death) happens, our bodies return to the ground. However, what happens to our souls? Does it stay with the body or go somewhere else?.......
