What happens to the soul if your brain dead?

Was just curious as to what your opinion is as to the status of the soul of some one who is completely brain dead with 0% brain activity. Long story short as to my asking : my ex-wife had a severe stroke, followed by complete brain death.

Theories as to what happens to soul if you are brain dead but your body is kept alive by machines?

There are a number of traditions that even in a normal death a persons spirit can hang around for a while. One of the accounts at the disciples seeing Jesus after his death seems to indicate that think they are seeing his ghost.

So my best guess is that their spirit might have to hang around will they really die. But its a guess.

Doesn't make any difference. The soul is eternal. God is in control, not the body and not the doctors. When the body dies, the soul passes into eternal punishment or eternal reward.

Much the same as death in general - God will preserve the non-physical aspect of us until we have fresh bodies again at the resurrection.

'God will download our software onto his hardware until the time he gives us new hardware to run the software again for ourselves.' (John Polkinghorne). 'We are animated bodies, not incarnated souls.'

The soul probably still inhabits the body or is asleep. It depends what your views on life after death are ...

The soul is gone, or whatever.

I am really not sure but my own personal belief is that the soul leaves the body and goes to the particular judgment once the brain dies.

We have scientific evidence that our soul/spirit exits the body when the brain is no longer functioning. Isn't it strange how the spirit can see without having eyes and can hear without having ears? The evidence of us having a spirit is found in this documentary:
