I beg to differ. I call into question First Samuel 28:3-15:
Now Samuel was dead, and all Israel had mourned for him and buried him in his own town of Ramah. Saul had expelled the mediums and spiritists from
the land... When Saul saw the Philistine army, he was afraid; terror filled his heart. He inquired of the Lord, but the Lord did not answer him...
"Find me a woman who is a medium, so I may go and inquire of her."
"There is one in Endor," they said.
So Saul disguised himself, putting on other clothes, and at night he and two men went to the woman.
"Consult a spirit for me," he said, "and bring up for me the one I name." But the woman said to him, "Surely you know what Saul has done... Why have
you set a trap for my life to bring about my death?"
Saul swore to her by the Lord, "As surely as the Lord lives, you will not be punished for this." Then the woman asked, "Whom shall I bring up for
"Bring up Samuel," he said.
When the woman saw Samuel, she cried out at the top of her voice and said to Saul, "Why have you deceived me? You are Saul!"
The king said to her, "Don't be afraid, what do you see?"
The woman said, "I see a spirit coming up out of the ground."
"What does he look like?" he asked.
"An old man wearing a robe is coming up," she said.
Then Saul knew it was Samuel and he bowed down and prostrated himself with his face to the ground.
Samuel said to Saul, "Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?"
If Samuel's Soul was not Immortal, then it could not have appeared to Saul. So right here, the OT supports that the Soul is in fact Immortal.
The Human Soul is wholly composed of Energy. If any of you know a way to destroy energy, please post just how this is done.
I am one who might be called "medium," in that I have been seeing dead people for most of my life. In hospitals, nursing homes, places where people go
to die, and other places too, in homes where someone died. Now before your mind goes to the old, "it's demons," do a little research on the Ghosts of
Gettysburg. If you are about to tell me that Demons have nothing better to do than pose as dying and bleeding men, screaming in pain, then something
is wrong here. As for relatives, I have seen both my Grandfather, and my Real Father, whom I never knew in life, and both appeared in full apparition,
and others saw them. As for friends, I have seen two. As for other Ghosts, I have seen too many to count.
I know Christianity teaches that the Soul is not Immortal, and that the Soul can be destroyed. They teach this for good reason, if everyone knew in
their heart that they were an Immortal Soul, they would not need the Church anymore, would they?
