66: Are We Made Up of Body, Soul, and Spirit?
The discussion about the duality (or dichotomy) of mankind versus the triune nature (or trichotomy ) of mankind is a mini-debate among some Christian theologians. People have asked, “Are we made up of a body, a soul, and a spirit?” or “Are we just a body and soul?”
In this episode, Kenny defines the difference between the material substance of humans versus the immaterial substance of humans. Then Kenny uses several passages of Scripture, as well as our overall understanding of the “imago dei” that is indwelled within humanity, to point to the fact that we are indeed made up of three substances: Body, Soul, and Spirit.
