Ezekiel 18:4, 20;
· 4Behold, all souls are mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is mine: the soul who sins shall die.
· 20 The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not suffer for the iniquity of the father, nor the father suffer for the iniquity of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself.
The soul is the body.....the living flesh and blood organism of all living creatures created from the dust of the earth.......made alive by the breath of life generating oxygen enriched blood..this is how all life began.
30And to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life
· 7And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
