The following are some verses from the Bible that prove that the teaching about an “immortal soul” is about imaginative “wishful thoughts”. These ideas have their origins in Hellenistic philosophy. The theses according to the philosopher Plato were from the Roman Catholic church completely taken over (Body of a leopard, Revelation, chapter 13) and continues to be taught to this day. The doctrine of the “immortal soul” found its place as an official dogma in the Roman Catholic Church. catechism (Can. 366). The serpent used this lie in the Garden of Eden in order to mislead Eve and ultimately to tempt her to be unfaithful to God.
“And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.”
“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.”
“For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.”
“For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.”
“Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.”
“So man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep.”
“The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence.”
“His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.”
“And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. ”
“But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.”
“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:”
The doctrine of an immortal doctrine is a prerequisite for numerous heresies. This includes the immediate journey to heaven or hell after death. The Catholic idea of a lucrative sale of indulgences presupposes such an immortal soul.
The “best”: The Roman Catholic Church knows what the Bible says. She knows full well that the Gospel contains no reference to an immortal soul. This religiously oriented institution proves this with its own encyclopedia. In the “New Catholic Encyclopedia”, issue 13, starting on page 335, the chapter “Soul [in the Bible]” explains to the reader that the Old and New Testaments view the soul of a human being as a whole. The living human being with the breath of God IS the soul. A distinction between man and soul does not appear in the Bible.
Therefore, this church deliberately teaches people a lie. Belief in immortal souls or in spirits of the dead is already spiritism. And anyone who knows the Bible also knows that this is an abomination in the eyes of God!
