1. Man is created by God.
2. Man is a sinner in need of a Savior.
3. Man is made up of the material and immaterial.
4. Man will experience an resurrection.
There are some non-essentials that believers differ on. For example, is humanity dichotomous or trichotomous. I, personally, believe man, is trichotomous.
1Thess. 5:23-24 states, "May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it."
Hebrews 4:13 states, "For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart,"
Man has a body, soul, and spirit.
Another issue that the Body of Christ differs on is the subject of the fragmentation of the soul nature.
I believe the soul, however, can fragment and as such can be transmitted, spiritually, generationally.
The spirit is spiritual (John 3:6, 1Corinthians 5:5). The spirit & the soul (the immaterial parts~ the soul is seen in eternity in the Book of Revelation) will enter eternity upon death. However, the soul, remember can be broken (and as such demons can take advantage of the brokeness and transmit the parts to future generations (like they do with curses and diseases if the person has not experienced the healing power of Jesus). The spirit though is indwelt with the Holy Spirit and as such cannot be touched by Satan or demons.That's what I thought you were saying. So, if a persons relative had MPD AND died?, than one of their fragmented personalities could have been passed into them? Wow. I know I keep going deep with this, but this makes me wonder. Is the soul part of the physical or the spiritual? Does the soul die with the body and the Spirit lives on?
Satan can do all kinds of things to the body (and parts of the soul) to believers even after death. Jude tells us that even the "body of Moses" was a subject of dispute as Micheal, the angel and the devil were disputing over the body of this dear believer. Broken parts of the soul can also be disputed if a spiritual right has been given to a part of the soul (not the spirit however when speaking of a born again believer).
However, at the resurrection, the natural (the body & soul) will be restored by the triune God.
Also note that this isn't reincarnation as reincarnation believes one, upon death, can re-enter into the flesh as another identity. The broken soul, cannot take upon "flesh" nor does it comes in any another form.
