    Here is the best way I can explain , at this time, what the soul is, and what happens to it after you die.

    To begin with, we read in Genesis 2:7 , that after God made man from the dust of the earth (earth has life in it), God then breathed into his nostrils the breath of life".

    God breathed , is also used to express His Word - Job 37:10 -- Acts 17:25

    Breath = soul

    God has a soul, because he has breath. Speaking figuratively of course. But what breath life is, is the "mind". To have the mind of Christ, is to have the soul of Christ, which is the breath of life.

    When God made man out of the dust of the earth, man had life, but he did not have soul life.

    Matthew 10:28 tells us that the soul can not be killed. IT can however be destroyed - Matthew 10:28 also.

    The soul , is the mind, and the mind can be destroyed, but not killed. Our minds, are what is in our remembrance. In order for Adam , the first man, to be able to name all of the animals, he had to have a reference from which to name the animals. This reference is the soul, that God breathed into man. Man became a living soul. This tells us, that the man "became" what the soul (mind) had in it for reference (remembrance).

    When mankind dies, it is the body that dies, not the soul. The soul remains, until such time, that God raises that which is corruptible, and raises it unto incorruption. Christians sleep, because what they have is greater than the soul. They have Christ in them, which is the spirit of God's son, in them. This is mortal, and it will be raise unto immortality. (ref. I Corinth. 15).

    Our bodies are like a car. The gasoline is the soul, and only needs a spark to ignite the soul (gasoline), thus rendering the soul (gasoline) to be able to perform its remembrance. God is the spark in mankind. And he sparked His breath , into the man who was made out of the dust of the earth, and this man became a living soul (gasoline that has been ignited). The potential is always there, but a spark is needed. God being that spark, also sparks all those who ever lived , at one of the two resurrections. Your gasoline (soul) remains with you in death. What we put into our minds (souls) after we have been sparked into life, can be water, or more gasoline (God's breath). God's Word is the breath of life. If we water down the breath of life, then we no longer have the pure Word of God, which is God breathed.

    God told Adam to not eat of the tree of good and evil, for in the day thereof that thou eatest, thou shalt shurely die ! He did eat, and he did die ! His soul ? NO ! The soul can not be killed !

    We are going to give an account of ourselves, at one of the two judgement seats. We will be able to do this, because our "souls" will be reactivated by God putting a spark to the gasoline (soul). We will remember, because God wants us to remember .

    The "soul" is "breath life", that came from God, who breathed into the nostriles of the first man Adam. Man then started to remember that which is in his soul (mind). Adam did not go to school to learn, God taught him, and he was to remember what God had told him in his soul (mind).

    You're all wrong....

    I recently bought a cheap concordance and this is what it says,

    Soul is the ability to, or proclivity for, moving the body rhythmically and in syncronization with music, particularly music with strong back beats and bass lines. Soul is also a type of culturally aquired food preparation technique. Soul is most commonly found within the African-American culture although some anglos feel they too have aquired 'soul'. Generally though, white folk aint got no soul.

    I'm not sure I agree with that concordance. I feel I can dance pretty well. Some nice young lady once told me that I looked like I was taking a motor skills class. That's good right?
