Now, to sum up the points that have been covered:
1. We have seen that the doctrine of the immortality of the soul is admittedly traced to heathen Greek philosophers, and its followers are quite willing to concede that the Bible meaning of soul is something very different.
2. The issue is clear and there is no middle ground--we must choose between Bible teaching and human speculation.
3. The words nephesh and psuche, translated "soul," occur 850 times in the Bible and in not one case is there any suggestion of immortality.
4. The translators have used over 40 words in translation and a glance at this list shows how far different the Bible soul is from the orthodox one.
5. The word is first used of ANIMALS.
6. One-third of all its occurrences speak of it in terms indicating its mortality and subjection to death.
7. It is often spoken of as being killed by man, and it is several times spoken of as actually being dead, and being handled and touched in a dead state.
ANYTHING MORE DIFFERENT FROM THE IMMORTAL SOUL THEORY, IT WOULD BE DIFFICULT TO IMAGINE.
