    So, the soul is destructible. It is the infinite or unlimited aspect of who we are. It is widely considered that they have knowledge of all that they write about, but, in fact, they do not. And this account is used to depict an ideal soul and how it can deteriorate if not properly cared for. For though the resurrection of the dead is kept as a doctrine of the church, what is its meaning if the dead get immortality immediately upon death? Making the right choice may mean standing out against popular opinion and believing in the immortality of the soul is the popular, established in church opinion and bearing the respective costs.

    Like a well-regulated state, each aspect of the soul will know its place and will contribute to the well-being of the whole person. Consult especially E. Add to this what we said before, that power is bound to exaggerate every fault and make him ever more envious, treacherous, unjust, friendless, impure, harbouring every vice in his bosom, and hence only less of calamity to all about him than he is to himself. Now, man having thus been liberated from the fetters of causation response, at least as pertains to eternal destiny, and provision having been made for the growth of the immortal self, the soul, it remains for man himself to will the creation or to inhibit the creation of this surviving and eternal self which is his for the choosing. These dialogues show the life of the philosophical mind at work: questioning, arguing, speculating, imagining, wondering, struggling, and understanding. Those who torture the living will hardly find happiness after death.

    So, the soul cannot die. Among these new endowments may be mentioned: fixation of divinity quality, past-eternity experience and memory, immortality, and a phase of qualified potential absoluteness. This is the emerging and immortal soul which is destined to survive mortal death and begin the Paradise ascension. For Kierkegaard, the development towards more and more integrated selfhood is marked by a self-conscious, responsible, and continuous integration of necessity and possibility over time.

The Immortality of the Soul book

So, the soul cannot die. Every material thing we understand falls prey to its own unique "evil": wood rots; iron falls prey to rust; the body dies of the illnesses that attack it; and so on.

The mortal and material mind is the mother of this same emerging reality. We worship God, the all-worker, the Great Soul, who is ever seated in the heart of his creatures. Like a well-regulated state, each aspect of the soul will know its place and will contribute to the well-being of the whole person.

So possibility is future-oriented and appears to us in the form of fantasies, hopes, imaginings, and dreams. It even goads us into feeling these base emotions vicariously. Impressed by evidence of the dependence of mind on brain, some Christian thinkers have been willing to accept the view—corresponding to the ancient Hebrew understanding—of the human being as an indissoluble psychophysical unity, but these thinkers have still maintained a belief in immortality, not as the mind surviving the body, but as a divine resurrection or re-creation of the living body-mind totality.

In IV Maccabees, also ix. You and I have a choice to make: will we believe God and His Word, or we will believe Plato, Socrates and what they brought, through their disciples, into the church doctrines?

To know God is to cut the cords of death.

Disbelief in the immortality of the soul…~Carl Jung

God is all-seeing, and he beholds both the evil deeds of the wicked and the good works of the righteous; our God observes all things with a flashing eye. First, they pretend to know all sorts of things, but they really know nothing at all.

What is bad for the soul is injustice and other vices. For years, people are either rewarded in heaven or punished in hell for the sins or good deeds of their life.

Thus in Book X c Socrates begins to investigate the rewards of the just life. He is the Creator, the God of all good purposes, and the protector of the justice of the universe. But we cannot at this point logically allow his argument. Such an idea is utterly contrary to the Israelite consciousness and is nowhere found in the Old Testament.

This is what I want to do here: I want to focus on those passages where Plato has Socrates argue for, rather than just describe or discuss, the immortality of the soul. The God-knowing soul rises in the universe like the cream appears on top of the milk. And however thoroughly it eludes the attention of the despairer, and however thoroughly the despairer may succeed, as is the case of that kind of despair which is characterized by unawareness of being in despair in losing himself entirely, and losing himself in such a way that it is not noticed in the least — eternity nevertheless will make it manifest that his situation was despair, and it will so nail him to himself that the torment nevertheless remains that he cannot get rid of himself, and it becomes manifest that he was deluded in thinking that he succeeded.

Maybe from the weakness of old age, or perhaps because, now that he is nearer to what lies beyond, he begins to get some glimpse of it himself — at any rate he is beset with fear and misgiving; he begins thinking over his past: is there anyone he has wronged?

We think there is no shame in indulging these emotions because we are indulging them with respect to a fictional character and not with respect to our own lives.

But if a natural evil can just make its bearer bad then the problem disappears. You breath. This original couple cannot transmit unconditioned immortality to their procreated sons and daughters.Bible verses about Immortality Of The Soul. 1 Corinthians ESV / 5 helpful votes Helpful Not Helpful.
