Christians: Is "soul" just your way of saying "consciousness"?

According to you everyone has one, it’s a part of you, and somehow “leaves” the body after death, but it somehow ISN’T its own physical entity?
Don’t you just mean “consciousness”?
The functioning of our organs all-together? The system as a whole?


  1. Your soul is what gives you life conscience, it is not your organs, that is your body, the soul is what gives you awareness that you are alive.

  2. A soul is the whole person.
    Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

  3. Its called magnetic energy and yes it does transform, Whether there is consciousness to the soul or not is irrelevant as that energy/soul is designed to do and be and go wherever the original designer //God had planned. Its not about us to begin with, its about Gods Plan for us. Welcome to kinder garden.

  4. No.
    365 The unity of soul and body is so profound that one has to consider the soul to be the “form” of the body: i.e., it is because of its spiritual soul that the body made of matter becomes a living, human body; spirit and matter, in man, are not two natures united, but rather their union forms a single nature.
    2727 We must also face the fact that certain attitudes deriving from the mentality of “this present world” can penetrate our lives if we are not vigilant. For example, some would have it that only that is true which can be verified by reason and science; yet prayer is a mystery that overflows both our conscious and unconscious lives. Others overly prize production and profit; thus prayer, being unproductive, is useless. Still others exalt sensuality and comfort as the criteria of the true, the good, and the beautiful; whereas prayer, the “love of beauty” (philokalia), is caught up in the glory of the living and true God. Finally, some see prayer as a flight from the world in reaction against activism; but in fact, Christian prayer is neither an escape from reality nor a divorce from life.

  5. yes I believe that consciousness is the spirit. Weather you want to call it consciousness because you want to be scientific or call it spirit because you want to be spiritual either way it will always be a divine mastery that no human scientist or religious person can ever explain! There for only GOD almighty or supreme intelligence is the creator of this wonderful thing we call life!
