Much confusion about the difference between spirit and soul. Many seem to use the names interchangeably, but they are very different. Understanding the difference makes the Gospel of Jesus Christ more easily understood. To me this is the essence of Christianity.
Thessalonians 5: 23-24
John 3: 5-7
5 Jesus replied, "I assure you, no one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit. 6 Humans can reproduce only human life, but the Holy Spirit gives birth to spiritual life. 7 So don't be surprised when I say, 'You must be born again.'
When Adam rejected and rebelled against God's commands, his body did not die, but his spirit did. We inherit the rebellious nature of Adam, but Christ paid the price and penalty for our rebellion and offers all that follow him, a new spiritual life.
1 Corinthians 15:22
