Did some part of you exist before you were born? Most Christians would immediately answer “no.” We are told the Christian belief is that nothing about you existed before you were born.
However, that hasn’t always been the belief in Christianity. A segment of ancient Christianity believed that a part of you has existed since before God made the universe. A segment of ancient Christianity also believed in reincarnation. Those beliefs, though, were snuffed out 1500 years ago by The Church.
In this last segment of our three-part series on the soul, we look at what it really means to say that human beings have a spiritual part to them. We try to come up with some kind of understanding that goes beyond the dogma of institutional Christianity.
In doing so, we find a completely different version of what Christianity is all about, what human beings really are, and what God is like.
