A few weeks ago we began to look at the nature of the soul as defined in the Bible – not as defined by traditions or mythology or different social groupings - but as defined by the Bible. What we found was the Bible clearly states that the soul – the being of man and animal - is mortal and subject to death, which is the absence of life. This program looks at Scriptures that seem to contradict this conclusion, as well as the difference between "soul" and "spirit." What does the Bible tell us?
(Part I of a 2-part series) Death and taxes – two sure things for us in this life. Now, with taxes we can always try and avoid them – we can shelter our money, make less money, get a better tax advisor – you know – we can play the game and sometimes even come out ahead. With death there is no game, for it eventually finds every one of us. The only question here is what really happens when you die? Do you leave your body and go someplace or are you dead – really dead – as in not alive, not aware, just plain ol’ expired? As you already know, such a question has many different answers – stay with us as we attempt to establish a biblical perspective on the matter!
