Stephen, anybody: Here are some verses that I have trouble understanding, if man has an immortal soul:

John 3:36, "He that believeth on the son hath everlasting life; and he that believeth not shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him."

Q. If believers have everlasting life, and they die; does this mean Jesus is speaking of their immortal soul?  But, if the soul is always alive, why does it need everlasting life?  And, if unbelievers shall not see life, does this mean literal death, just of their body, for their soul is immortal?

John 5:28,29, "Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, and shall come forth, they that have done good unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation."

Q. Jesus indicates people are in the graves to be resurrected.  Why wouldn't he call down the believers in heaven (i.e. their souls)?  And, if believer's have a soul which has all it's senses, and therefore, some kind of a body, that can be in the presence of God, enjoying all the delights of heaven, why then would they need another body?

John 6:39,40, "...all of which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day."  "...every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day."

Q. If Jesus is speaking of those given him by the Father, and that even though they die, he will raise them up at the last day, why does he think he could lose them, if they are alive because their souls are immortal?

Q. Again, since these believers have died, does 'everlasting life' not mean their souls? But, if immortal, why do they need everlasting life?  And why do they need raised up?

All for now,  Arnold

~ You had no takers for your last line of questions, Arnold.
