 Soul & spirit, what's the dif?

but if not, then don't make a distinction between the soul & spirit of man.

Is that logical? Even if we never knew the separate natures, functions, etc. of man's spirit and soul the distinction has already been made in the bible not in my imagination.

What I meant was, if or when you use one to make a point, just know it could also be the other.
Example:
My soul is grieved.
this couild also mean:
My spirit is grieved.
So it is with:
My heart is grieved.

You see, wich is the correct way to say it?
When some one is grieved, what part of man is it that is grieved?

Another example:
Quote:
b: the soul had become wounded, lost, undiscerning.
L: Not wounded, but rebellious, disobedient, blind, lost, undiscerning...ect...

b: The will of the soul healed by faith is free.
L: Not healed, but shown how not to follow the lusts of the flesh.

b: Now a man's wounded soul can be healed and live according to the power of God's Word.
L: Not wounded soul, but rebellious, disobedient soul can submit to HIM.

b: The knowledge of good was obscured and lost in man's sinfulness.
L: The knowledge of good is obscured because they do not know God to show them what is good. Not because of sinfulness.

In all this, you could also say:
b: the spirit had become wounded, lost, undiscerning.

b: The will of the spirit healed by faith is free.

b: Now a man's wounded spirit can be healed and live according to the power of God's Word.

Why do you think it is the souls and not the spirit?

I think I will start a new thread on this, to get other's oppinions.

Jesus said For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished.

 Re: Soul & spirit, what's the dif?

The soul is the seat of the emotions or the
personality. God created us unique individuals
each with distinctive personalities. But we
are not to be ruled by our emotions, rather
governed by the Spirit. Our personalities are
to be conformed to the character of Christ.

The Spirit is the image and likeness of God
created in us by regeneration. We are to be
filled with the Spirit, to be led by the Spirit,
and to walk in the Spirit !!

Can we make it cleare that the word "God" referes to the Godhead.
If you want to speak about God is [b]A[/b] Spirit, make it cleare that you mean that the Holy Spirit is [b]A[/b] Spirit.
God the Father can not be one also, otherwise there would be two Holy Spirits.
God the Son is not [b]A[/b] spirit either.

 Re:

John 4:24
God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth." This is for the person who recommended Esword. I actually used biblegateway but that is not the point. I would like to recommend that you study your bible before you post such incorrect statements. I say this in love of course.

What makes you think that I don't?
What was incorrect?
