That which is Flesh. The Terri Schiavo delima. When is life over, when is it time to say enough, when is it time to give a life over to Gods will? The question many are refusing to address; ”Is the body of Terri Schiavo a “soul-animated” Body, otherwise is her body without the Spirit? The Bible tells us that Faith without works is dead being alone so then with what we understand of Scripture on Life and Death, does the same thing apply with the Body? The Flesh with out the Spirit is Dead, being alone ? Now I understand that all Christian, Theologians and Ministers do agree with this one fact in Life, there is three parts[entities], as with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit{Ghost}.The Body, Soul and Spirit. Which of these three can live independently of the others? The answer, The Soul and Spirit. The Body without the Spirit and Soul is just an“soul-animated” body. The heart, lungs, and nerves can operate, with or without outside influence but without the Spirit the Body is dead being alone. Lets read a little of the scripture concerning the dead. Ecc 3:18 I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.

Ecc 3:19 For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.

Ecc 3:20 All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.

Ecc 3:21 Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth? Again here we see the influence of God stating ,”That which is Flesh is Flesh and that which is Spirit is Spirit”. Then you ask, what is the Spirit?

The Spirit is;

Hebrew ruach, Greek pneuma. Man in his normal integrity ("whole," holokleeron, complete in all its parts, 1Th_5:23) consists of "spirit, soul, and body." The spirit links man with higher intelligences, and is that highest part receptive of the quickening Holy Spirit (1Co_15:47). The soul (Hebrew nephesh, Greek psuchee) is intermediate between body and spirit; it is the sphere of the will and affections.

In the un-spiritual, the spirit is so sunk under the animal soul (which it ought to keep under) that such are "animal" ("seasonal," having merely the body of organized matter and the soul, the immaterial animating essence), "having not the spirit" (Jud_1:19; Jam_3:15; 1Co_2:14; 1Co_15:44-48; Joh_3:6). The unbeliever shall rise with an animal (soul-animated) body, but not, like the believer, with a spiritual (spirit-endued) body like Christ’s (Rom_8:11).

The soul is the seat of the appetites, the desires, the will; hunger, thirst, sorrow, joy; love, hope, fear, etc.; so that nephesh is the man himself, and is used for person, self, creature, any: a virtual contradiction of materialism, implying that the unseen soul rather than the seen body is the man. "Man was made" not a living body but "a living soul." "The blood, the life," links together body and soul (Lev_17:11).
