Discussion for Genesis 2

    Cheryl (I'm having problems uploading regardless what device I use), 1 Cor 15:45a "And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul..." I think your original question was "when did man become a spirit?" The answer is at creation. The spirit died because of sin but the spirit is born again when we are saved. 1 Cor 15:45 "the last Adam [was made] a quickening spirit."
  • A disciple
    Cheryl; We are not only flesh and bones, but living souls. It is the spirit in us that animates our bodies. The spirit is the life and the breath; and the life is in the blood. To think that a man is only a body makes no sense: for how then do you account for the decay and corruption that consumes a dead body? The spirit of a man present in the body shows he is alive; and the spirit absent, death!

    John 4:24 "God is a Spirit...."
  • A disciple
    Cheryl; "If not a man be born from above; he cannot SEE the kingdom of heaven...unless a man be born of the water and of the Spirit; he cannot enter the kingdom of heaven... The words I speak unto you are Spirit, and they are life." The Preacher wrote; "Who knows the spirit of man which goes upward? and, Then shall the spirit return to God that made it."
  • CHERYL
    YES GOD MADE US IN HIS IMAGE ,, BUT HE FORM MAN FROM DUST AND THEN GAVE HIM THE BREATH OF LIFE NO WHERE DOES IT SAY HE MADE HIM A SPIRITUAL BEING YES IN HIS IMAGE BUT NOT AS HIM
  • Jeff Berry
    Cheryl, Gen 1:26; God made us in His image
