Dear Dallas:

Is too, until recent years, referred to man as having three "components"--body, soul, and spirit.  NOT TRUE. Man is made of TWO components--body and spirit. God never put a soul into Adam. The soul of man is not a component, but rather the product of two combined components, namely: body and spirit. God formed man's body out of the ground. He then breathed into this body the breath of life (spirit), and the MAN, not some separate component, but the man became a "LIVING SOUL."  The soul is not the living soul, but rather the man is the living soul. There is no soul without the body of man.  Understood?  God is not a trinity and neither is man a trinity.

In Genesis, "God" is translated from "Elohim" which is the plural of "El" which is God. Who are the plurality of God? Why Jesus Christ and His Father, of course. God created all things through His Son Jesus Christ (Col. 1, Heb. 1:2, 2:10, etc.).

God be with you,

Ray

Hebrews 4:14 says, "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit ..."

Should that be interpreted: "... dividing asunder body and spirit"?
