The 666 Mark Of The Beast, I would have to say no thank you, I choose life over death.
You wouldn't give your life for the sake of your brother?
That's all the OP is talking about.
He flung that word soul out there, without having a clue
what that word really means.. just like most everyone
Jesus loved the Samaritan, the tax collector, the prostitute
and the Egyptian magicians casting demons out in his name.
You do NOT have the right to say whose love is pure, genuine
and an acceptable offering before the Lord. You do NOT.
The words are a bit different? In your opinion does that give
you the right to sit in judgment?
Perhaps you might follow your Lord's example?
I'm not persecuting you. I'm not harassing you. I'm not twisting
words. I'm reminding you how your Savior wants you to conduct
yourself. I'm showing you love, even though you or others
may get all bent out of shape.

maybe you spent a little to much time with evil. if everyone on the earth and the planet were to die and also the earth itself then that would be the price humanity pays for our actions. giving up your soul to save everyone would only extend that judgement because then its just business as usual after your sacrifice. the only way to save everyone is to get them to all understand their own souls.
unless your talking about becoming oneness and influencing others. which is impossible because people have there own souls and free will. and how exactly dose one give up their soul?
and to what?
if you have an image or idea of what your going to give up your soul to then your probably headed down the wrong path. all of our individual selves are parts of one God Being anyways. your already oneness you just dont perceive it.

i think the op should elaborate more on what he means. the post was pretty vague. your soul is the only part of you that transcends life and death to attempt to sacrifice it will not get rid of it, you would only lose yourself in a false concept of death and nothingness. i wonder if the OP has had any experience with his soul or if he is just throwing around words around that he has no true understanding of.
if he wants other people to truly think about sacrificing their souls then he should give us more details about what he means.

Exactly. And it takes more than a good heart to enter the Tao and stay there.

You are confused. The renegade is about being selfish and rebelling AGAINST oneness.
The oneness is God and it seeks to control everyone. The force of Satan is rebellion, but most likely most will just forfeit the freedom of their soul.
Buddhism says get rid of your desires, the bible says crucify the body of its passions and desires.
All of these religions dedicated to God is spiritual Death.

i don't think your using the word soul right. do you mean to devote all of your attention to serving humanity? because thats way different from sacrificing your soul.
everything is dying because the majority of humans are greedy and materialistic. trying to sacrifice your soul to whatever you think god is won't cause some miraculous change that will save all humanity (unless you know something i don't know. and that may be the case). the only thing you can really do is strengthen your personal connection with god live as an example to others and hope people follow your lead and teach them what you know.
but if your question is a hypothetical question my answer would be no. humanity will get what it deserves for being so greedy. to sacrifice myself would just be a cop out for those that got us in this position and nothing would be learned from this unfortunate experience. and if that means everyone has to die "i guess thats just the motion" - drakeedit on 6-11-2013 by duesprimusvictorimmortali because: (no reason given)

The people whodon't believe in power will be manipulated by those who do.
If people be selfish and only do what they want, speaking up for themselves, they won't be as manipulated as those who only want to give and be unconditionally loving
Love is manipulation.
People want love from others, and so they act like sheep, conform, and be a follower of what everyone else is doing.
People give love when they want something from you whether physical or a behavior.
It is all manipulation.
Well you have that right! Love is really only that. Now if one learn to Love themselves, you would not Need anybodys so-called Love. You would have your Own!
Being in that state of mind, your Love then is pure when you give it away asking Nothing in return since you already have it anyway. You would not even care if anybody loved you, since you already had your own.
Most use Love to gain something they do not have within themselves anyway. Might as well get to finding you Own Love and Leave it at that!
Good Words My Friend! Just watch how many people will hate this Truth!

So many thoughts and interpretations of what is and isn't a soul.. My view on the matter is we are a tripartite being.. Comprised of a body, soul and spirit.. The spirit is the life force and the most Nobel part of man.. It's members consist of intuition and communion and love.. The soul is the center or captains seat of man.. It consists of mind, will and emotions.. In essence it's you. Self.. Your dreams, desires , experiences.. It's what makes you think act and talk like you.. Period.. The last part is the body.. It's your physical representation in this dimension.. It's how we experience and negotiate in this three dimensional realm.. It's members are the most base of the three.. Instant gratification, sex, food, drink, drugs.. Those who are led by the flesh are the lowest and most base form of humanity..
So why split it into 3 groups? Could a Soul just be a Soul? Look at how many times we placed God into that box alone!
Now the proper way and order is.. You (soul) exercise your will/voilition and follow the spirits lead by intuition.. Deny the base desires of the flesh, but be careful because the soul can try and lead also.. You'll get self righteous , judgemental, arrogant, conceited and ultimately hippocraticcal.. (Too bad many Christians fall into this category)
I can see this as fact! But you did forget to add evil is still a part of us. Some just go the other way like Christians do.
Man had denide this for ages!
Here's the crux to it though.. From who/whom does the spirit get his information? Be careful because there are many spirits, but not all righteous..
Yes. It takes time in finding this out. Even Man will play on this dirty trick if you are not aware. It helps listening with your Heart and not of your mind, since it can do the same also.
The body is the true representation of Gods temple.. You have the outer court (body) everyone sees.. The inner court (soul/self) people can see it but they have to enter through the gate(get to know).. Finally the holy of holies (spirit) Gods throne.. If you position yourself properly.. You'll ask God to come in( he's a gentleman and waits for you to open the door) he'll take his proper seat in your spirit.. He'll lead by communing with your spirit.. Your spirit then communicates Gods will to your soul through intuition.. Your soul(mind,will,emotions) interprets the spirits direction through prayer and meditation.. Now the hard part.. Will you use your voilition/will to follow the spirit which always denies the flesh and wars with it, or will you take the easy path and compromise, negotiate?
Fighting the best I can! Now its more like allowing, being, feeling, tuning in to a inner voice. Its not so hard, it the many parts you need to work with really.
I wish I could tell you I have over come, I've arrived.. Truth? I have much prayer and fasting ahead of me.. A lot of work.. My hope is by the end of my coarse, I'll be an over comer..
Most have missed the point completely! Your soul is something so Special, Yet considering Giving it away as a Gift to Life you call it Evil! Most of what you Call Evil is what you have read in books, seen on TV and been told to Believe what is Evil. Spend some time with Real Evil and you will find this out!
Really, no games intended! Say that the Earth is in Pain and dying, would you offer your Soul for Earth to Heal itself> What about all the Life that is dying on it also. What you don't give a crap as long as You Got Yours Right?
How do you know How you got your Soul in the First Place? Ever think of that? Its all fun and games while your alive yet everything is dying! Look the other way, no its not happening, God will come down to save us All! Sure about that? Was you Told by God this would happen? What if you ARE wrong?
I never said to do it, only asked if you would consider it. Its your Choice Really. What like I have some Power over You, Really now. Never did I say Evil, yet somehow that all you actually see! Shame how the Human Race only cares if they continue to Live and Nothing Else!
Even if I was to tell you that Your Times Up, you would not listen. Either become Oneness or be as Evil as they have chosen long before you were created! Interesting that Man has not understood this yet. Even FEEL it in your Bones, Heart, Dreams and Yet you still push it away like IT does not Exist!
It would seem I shall have to turn up the Energy some more. Do hope your ready Humans! So Shall It Be!

If the soul exists then the 'next level' is not this lifetime, and it also means that there are many possibilities and outcomes, some of which are incomprehensible.
If you choose to stay here.....you are stuck with only one outcome. Life here with all the pitfalls and joyous moments, but such a materialistic path to take.
I want to mold galaxies. I want to shift stars. I believe as much that I can do this after experiencing this life as you believe that by selling your soul, or giving it away, will enable you to continue this life and wait to see and experience in five hundred years what you could potentially experience in a lifetime.
That and the realisation that on the other side time is a malleable substance.edit on 10-11-2013 by LightAssassin because: (no reason given)
