Re: Why do souls come to Earth?

HonestBrother ·
IMHO heaven, hell, and earth are the same place. What, after all, is paradise? What knowledge do we have of it? In fact, when we try to imagine it don't we just extrapolate from our earthly experiences? I mean we imagine seeing loved ones, maybe we'll relive our best memories, love, happiness, etc. Ditto for hell.

I don't believe in eternal souls, I believe that souls are impermanent essences. My view of the soul is similar to that of a Buddhist, or Aristotle's view on the soul: http://www.answers.com/topic/soul Jesus did not teach that souls are immortal, seperate, wraithly persons either: Jesus taught that the Kingdom of Heaven is not "here or there", but that is "within you".

Hmmm...that's probably due to Augustinian influence in Christian thought. Modern Christianity took Augustine's philosophy that the material world is something of a "curse", and that physical bodies are crass and disgusting. Many Christian basically view the body as little more than a prison for an idealized fluffy, wraith-like soul. That's why I find Tantric Buddhist philosophy on the soul so refreshing. It goes beyond this Cartesian Dualism of "body" and "soul", and it describes the body...

LOL, that's Evangelical teaching on the nature of why the soul incarnates. They believe that souls need to be "proven loyal to God", so they come to earth in physical bodies "tainted with Original Sin", and if they fail to "believe" (follow Christianity), they go to the Second Death after death (Eternal Hell). IMHO, a very simplistic, silly and immoral belief.

The "second death" is a phrase in the Revelation of John describing spiritual death and one's choice of and consignment to hell. It's not considered a good thing. The western Church for a long time took the Stoic/Neoplatonist idea that the flesh is "bad" and evil, but ever since the Reformation that has not been a serious concept.

Cautious about this series. It talks about the slave but not the slave master, what he or she was involved in.

It makes sense if your understanding of what it means to be a human being has little or nothing to do with the body. He is talking in terms of essences, not accidents. The essence, spirit, soul, etc. is fully and completely human, what ever the accidents (read body) is in form. I had never thought of this, but in some respects, this mirrors their understanding of the eucharist. When the words of consercration are said over the elements (wine and bread) they are transubstantiated. They become...

So the soul enters the body, or is created, at conception in your opinion? BTW - couldn't it also be argued that the soul is decidedly NOT human? That it is 'of God' or exclusively part of the 'spirit world'? Isn't the soul a conduit to God? If so - then what does it have to do with a "human being" in the sense that we're discussing? The soul/spirit defines us as humans?

I am not sure what my opinion is on the first question these days. I was simply trying to offer a context in which the Pope's statement was made. As to the latter comment, within the Christian tradition, only human beings have souls so the only souls are human. They are created by God, they are not parts of God. There is often a distinction made between soul and spirit. Spirit sometimes means simply the animating force. Thus, animals have spirits, but not souls. There are also lines of...

What is funny is that this "Christian" thought is borrowed from Platonism. The idea that the soul is eternal and not a part of God is Platonic and not supported in the Bible (especially the Old Testament). According to Ezekiel "The soul that sins, dies"; in Genesis, it claims that the "soul" is actually the Breath of God which retuns to breath after death. This doesn't support the Christian notion of an Eternal Soul that becomes human at conception (that's almost like saying that life begins...

My opinion on this topic and the related issue of abortion is similar to how Thurgood Marshall looked at capital punishment.
