5- THE SOUL.
Has anyone seen or touched the soul? Has anyone felt their own soul yet? Humans are also born, grow up, get sick and die just like animals, is there any difference in saying that there is a soul? Or if humans have souls, why don't animals have souls? But the Word of God is wise beyond the reach of science, we are blessed because we put our trust in Jesus Christ and rely on the Bible which is extremely wise, interpretable problems from the infancy of science to its peak:
Book of Genesis, 1:26-27 about God's creation of man: God said: "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth on the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created them."
It is not by accident that the Bible repeats three times that: "God created man in the image of God.": The image that man is like God is the SOUL, the SOUL cannot be recognized by man nor can the IMAGE of God be discerned. On July 31, 1966, Jesus himself revealed in his Message of Merciful Love to Margaret: "I have created your SOUL in the likeness of my image." And on June 23, 1967: "I created your SOUL in my IMAGE". Thus, Jesus more than once identified the sentence LIKE GOD'S IMAGE in the book of Genesis as the SOUL. Jesus also revealed more about the union of body and soul on June 25, 1967: "The soul is far more related than the body. Because it nourishes the body and makes it active."
And the sentence "We made man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth." Man LIKE THE IMAGE OF GOD is a human being with a SOUL that is thousands of times wiser than animals and can dominate all things.
Genesis also speaks clearly about the soul in Genesis 2:7: "And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a LIVING SOUL."
We have mistaken the word "breathing life" to give people the breath of life in this life. In fact, we have understood it literally, in a close sense, because animals weren't breathed into their nostrils, but they still breathe, live and multiply, so the word "breathing life" that the Bible wants to express is giving a man a soul. It was Jesus who taught us very well the meaning of the word "breathing" when he breathed into his disciples and said, "receive the Holy Spirit..." It is just like the Bible describes God blowing life into Adam's nostrils, but that first time God gave man immortal life as the SOUL, and this time the Son gave man the HOLY SPIRIT, who restores nourishment soul.
So, "The Lord God formed man out of dust from the earth" means that God created man out of matter, whether out of love for his wife, whether he was wandering around or in a test tube. .. As long as it becomes human. And "breathing life" is any creature called human, whether white, black, yellow, brown, red, blind, crippled, bastards, abandoned children... All of them were created like God, like the IMAGE of God the immortal SOUL to unite with that body.
It must also be added about the meaning of "God breathes life": God does not have to breathe like us, but must understand that "LIFE" is the Eucharistic flesh and blood of God. So the Bible clearly states that: When our bodies were formed in our mother's womb, God gave birth (breathed in) a SOUL like an angel in the spirit world, to be united to that body. Therefore, the souls of all people, whether good or evil, holy or sinful, are the Children of God, born from the same God, so all are brothers and sisters. so we have found the answer to what Jesus said: "Don't call anyone on earth your father, for you have only one Father, the Father in heaven."
Well then, the supremely wise Bible teaches too clearly: HUMAN HAS A SOUL and only man has a soul, for no animal is breathed, no animal is made in the image of God. So no animal we are allowed to believe has a soul.
As for science, there is no machine, no means to probe to determine that there is a soul in each person, that is God's intention, He wants to put limits on science, so that the law of his blessing may be fulfilled. But in incidents such as ghost doing, demon possession, the dead person appearing, demon appearing, demon entering the field... We have to admit that: only when people have a soul will this happen like that. For example, in the case of ghost possession, that means each person has a soul, but if there is more than one soul in a body, that phenomenon occurs.
And as it is discussed in "The Origin of the Universe" both the earth and the atmosphere are immersed in a supermaterial solvent a thousand times denser than anything else, scientists with the most advanced machines still unexplored, it forces us to determine that the soul is indeed an existent spirit that science has not yet reached. And we believe there is a soul, but if we understand that the soul is weak and fragile, lying in the body, pretending to be a crippled limb, then that part is indented... That is not true, because let's look at the phenomenon of twins, when someone raises their hand to hit one, sometimes both of them raise their hand to help, even though the other can't see the hit. There are many cases where parents at home become seriously ill, and children far away are impatient and restless.
The soul is also understood as the words of Jesus: "The soul of the good people shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father": It means that the soul of the righteous is nourished by God every moment of their life until the end of their life, then it becomes a great light like the sun in the heaven, therefore we understand that the souls in our bodies shine like the lamps. And the souls of the parent attach to children like the light of lamps on one roof, thus spreading both virtue and sin.
In short, because of God's intention for his law of blessing to be fulfilled, God has created our senses to be unable to perceive the soul, just as no machine can touch the soul, there is no technique that can probe the soul, but we believe the Bible is the LIVING WORD, the TRUTH and the lucid insights in daily life that we recognize as having a soul.
