Have you forgotten who is the god of this world?
I thought you knew your Bible.
Don't blame Jehovah for the machinations of his adversary.
But it does explain why we were created and why we die. Have you ever experienced the death of a loved one? Would you like to see that one come back in complete health and walk the earth with you again? The Bible gives instructions for that.
.. . I, like almost everyone, have seen death and want loved ones to return. That would be really awesome. What wouldn't be awesome is if we die, we suffer and are just kind of deleted from existence. What would suck even more though would be if we all went into some kind of hell where we are tortured and repeatedly die for all eternity. . . .
The only way to discern if this is the truth is to study God's word without desire for license or hope of reward. In other words, study with an open mind.
Neo, the Bible says God formed the body, made the soul and created the spirit...
…..your response seems superlative on an ambiguous subject.
… soul…..….Animals are souls. Nothing metaphysical about it.
…... your spirit is you too...

For instance, for spirit to "exist," then is it necessarily a religious concept in the conventional sense
