Will We Be Made Immortal, or Is it Our Souls That Will Become Immortal?

The argument over the soul’s immortality vs. our body’s immortality is a petty long-lasting debate, not a salvation issue. In other words, your salvation is not dependent on your belief either way.

Some teach that mankind cannot become immortal. There is a spiritual side of man/woman and this spirit is called the soul. It is the soul that goes on for eternity with God.

-Bull: There is a lot of the Bible that is symbolical, metaphoric or analogical. But we humans becoming immortal is stated in several passages that are not symbolic, metaphoric or analogical. (See the Daily Bread Message Below.) Furthermore, our God is a powerful God, whom we should not set limits on. If He wants our body to become immortal, then He shall have it.

The Consequences of Believing in Immortality

Again, this is not a salvation issue. You’re free to decide for yourself.  Jesus does not care and probably laughs at your debating this issue. As long as you believe in Jesus Christ as your savior, you will be saved for eternity with Him.

In conclusion, the Daily Bread email message sent on 9/5/2022 says,

1 Corinthians 15:51-53 Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality. (NASB)

Yes, we will rise from the dead, but not as zombies wandering the earth. But as saved souls in the New Earth and the New Jerusalem. Some debate the immortality saying mankind cannot be made immortal and it is our souls that will become immortal. That is an unimportant distinguishment. But for the record, I believe in the Bible’s declaration of man becoming immortal in Acts 4:12, Romans 6:23, 1 Timothy 6:13-16, 2 Timothy 1:10, and 1 Thessalonians 4:16. Giving mankind immortality is just a small miracle that our Farther, the creator of our world and us, can bring about in a flash. Such a miracle is promised in John 3:16. The Bible also makes it clear that being resurrected to immortality comes only through the gracious mercy of God.

  9. Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll
    just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any tips for first-time blog writers?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    1. Thank you for reading my blog and sending the comment.
      No, my blog does not does not require what I consider a massive amount of work. I write a short email devotional message three mornings a week. Sometimes that involves a lot of time for research and then content construction. Most mornings the time is short (1 – 2 hours), sometimes it takes most of the day. Once I send it, I expand it and post it on my blog. Most days that takes about an hour. Some days the blog message requires more research and more editing.
      My advice to you, a new blogger is, as I’ve heard many times from AWAI (American Authors And Artist Institute), is:
      to write every day. At the minimum write in your journal. Don’t give up on your journal. If you make it a habit, you’ll soon discover a lot of topics that will go into your blog.
      My second piece of advice is that you join the AWAI. Mainly because you will receive a lot of messages- blogs that will teach you how to blog, and blog well. Go to
      https://www.awai.com/
      Third, learn something new about writing, editing, and blogging, every day. AWAI will send you plenty of topics to learn.

  18. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
    Nevertheless think of if you added some great images or videos to
    give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this blog could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its niche.
    Wonderful blog!

    1. Thank you for your comments and suggestions.
      Between my ministry, and my first novel and my new online ecommerce store, I find that I have to “work” until the wee early mornings of tomorrow to get as much as I do put into this new blog. I am not really interested in taking time away from those three to learn how to do good videos or photography.

      And, to be honest, I am afraid I might not be any good at those things.

    that is wonderful blog. A fantastic read. I will
    definitely be back.

    long time. Excellent stuff, just wonderful!
