Human Soul - Spiritual Soul: gives us a dignity with human rights for we are made in the image of God.
That is, our soul possesses two spiritual powers;
1) Intellect to know the truth.
2) And the will to choose what is good.
FREE WILL is the ability to make a choice.
Any choice or decision implies a variety of options of which one wins out.
Daily we make hundreds of decisions, actual choices, that form the fabric of our life against the backdrop of eternity.
* Only humans have spiritual souls and thus are able to make decisions.
* Every choice requires knowledge beforehand.
The better the knowledge the better the choice!
Hence the need for prophets who teach us God's truths.
* Nobody has a 'right' to choose evil, while there is an obligation to choose good.
One thing that DOESN'T belong to God, is 'sin'.
Choose right from wrong!
