I was taught that we are three part beings...body, soul, spirit. That we are spiritually dead before we are saved. So until then we are existing as two part beings...body and soul ( mind, emotions and will . It isn't until the Holy spirit enters us are we now three part beings and that the spirit "effects" our body and soul, but isn't the same as our soul (mind,emotions and will. Now I am being told NO we are two part beings. That even though our spitit is dead it is part of our soul before and even after we get saved. So in a sense we are still only two part beings, before and after. So which one is it?
