    Before I tell you what I think of that quote, perhaps you could point me to a scripture reference that says our souls take any Earthly knowledge at all to heaven with us.

    This IS a Christian board, after all.

    CTB- I get your point; and without nitpicking about semantics, I agree.

    I think we throw around "soul" too much.

    If you say his experiences make him, well let's discuss that. If you say his soul is effected, that is more than mere semantics. It is pagan. Our souls are binary. Either saved or not.
