Soul

soul

 

The word "soul" is similar to the word "spirit." This refers to that inner, nonphysical life that may live on after a person has died. The soul is sensitive to emotions such as love, hate, fear, anger, etcetera, but it is not considered to be physically sensitive. The soul should know the difference between what is morally right or wrong.

  • In many religions, a person’s soul goes to heaven if that person has led a good life.
  • Hell is a place for souls whose lives on earth were full of bad behavior or guilty of evil.
  • If you sign your soul over to the devil, you will get whatever you want while here on earth, but the price for your greed or lust is eternal damnation.
