As a human being, u r composed of three entities. Ur body, ur soul n ur spirit. Ur body is d part u see, d physical aspect of who u r. Ur soul is ur intellectual aspect, ur will, ur emotions, ur pride, ur achievements, ur thinkin, ur reasonin etc. Ur spirit, as d name implies is ur spiritual aspect. Ur spirit is d only part of u that lives on after ur physical body dies.

i dont agree with the part of the soul! If our spirits lives,does the soul die with the body??
Re: The Difference Between 'spirit' And 'soul' by Lyzbet: 6:40am On Aug 04, 2012

spirit is like the ocean and souls are the different creatures that live in that ocean. each of those creatures are unique and different from another creature but they are all bonded together by the ocean in which they live and have their being.

if you study the human body it gives you another close analogy on how the cosmos is arranged. spirit can be likened to the blood which moves around the whole body nourishing and keeping alive the different unique individual cells in the body which can be likened to souls. the blood is pumped by the heart which can likened to the God centre from which the Holy Spirit flows sustaining and creating all life.
The Holy Spirit is the creative force of God with which God created all life and sustains all life and souls are individualized units of life that have separate identities and consciousness.

and then tell us where the mind,conscience reside.in the body,soul or spirit?
or perhaps the body-soul-spirit is just another triumvate akin to the father-son-spirit triumvate

The breath of life could be anything...eg oxygen......keep peddling nonsense
Re: The Difference Between 'spirit' And 'soul' by buzugee(m): 12:53pm On Aug 04, 2012
spirit and soul are the same thing. its called soul when it is in a human body. when the body dies it gets released and exists alone as the spirit. so think of a spirit as being homeless, while a spirit who is not homeless is a soul.

Do u see oxygen??

D life force in a human is d spirit....

What's propels the human life is the air we breath......abi??

The greek word for spirit signifies wind,the air........

We are both right if u understand what I mean....

U just always wana be on the opposing side...:-)

we do not possess soul. it is the other way round. we are souls wearing a physical body. all the various forms of life you see were all created by the Holy Spirit of God, the creative force, as clothes or bodies for souls to put on in order to experience life in the universes of God. when soul is done with each particular experience, it simply drops that body which goes back to dust and wears another one to continue its experiences.
Re: The Difference Between 'spirit' And 'soul' by Emmy9ite(m): 3:23pm On Aug 04, 2012
Na wa for una o,na so una want take change the topic to chemistry ba?
#Back to topic! I just realised that spirit and ghost are the same,that is why we can say Holyspirit and Holyghost. Now a ghost is what comes after death(as we watch in movies) and we are made to believe but the soul is what goes for judgement after the body is dead,it either ends up in heaven or in hell!
With this few point of mine,i hope i have been able to convince and not confuse u that there is a difference between 'spirit' and 'soul'.
Thank yousmiley

bros am so impressed with the reply..after the soul drops the body,does it pick the spirit? When does the spirit come into play?
