I think you will agree that is a lot clearer and, oddly, misses out the words in your version that suggest a spirit shared out. I don't think these verses help us with souls at all.
Were you expecting a verse that said 'and in identical twins the spirit is likewise shared'. The verses merely lend support to the claim i made: that the spirit is divisible (can be shared between more than one individual). I was trying to transfer this point as simply as was possible. If you want to go into the metaphysical explanation then yes, one spirit shared out among many people is still one spirit, Just like one cake shared out between seven people is still one cake.
Most movies portray spirits as entities that must leave one body in order to enter another. This is not the biblical depiction. If you try to understand the bible with that mental imagery then it won't make sense.
A spirit can pass from one person into another and still be in both. This is what i was demonstrating with the verses above. The Holy Ghost is less like Casper and more like the Ebola or the Common cold. The same goes for any ghost.
I mentioned that Eve was the first clone. Scientifically, if we are to believe the story, she was Adams twin. When Jehovah formed her He didn't have to make another spirit to put in her and He didn't have to breathe life into the new body He created. The life of the second was taken out of the first life, the spirit of the second out of the first spirit.
I'm just trying to get this across in the simplest way possible, please let me know at what points I'm not being clear. Also you might to have to describe what you personally imagine a human soul to be like if i am to understand your position.
Supplemental......what if one is saved and the other is not. What happens in the afterlife?
Once again this has nothing, really nothing to do with their souls or being born again. Read my previous post about the two cars.
I take it you don't believe in bodily resurrection then?
I don't know enough to be sure on the matter. I suspect the people who believe would tell you that they come back with 'perfected bodies'. I however am very skeptical on this issue. Immediately someone mentions bodily resurrection to me this verse comes up in my head:1 Corinthians 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God...
Even still i'm not sure. Do you have any personal views or experience on the matter? Also do you think that the belief in bodily resurrection is a fundamental part of Christianity?
Your verses dont answer a single question that I asked in regards to your assertions. They, like you, make assertions with no definitions, descriptions, nor telling us how they work or what they do, etc.
There is a reason i mentioned the soul/spirit thing in passing.
As for my examples of grounding and spanking, they go to show that as much as you want to, in black and white, assert that these "people" (as opposed to person) sharing one body can easily be discrened between each other isnt exactly true... as my examples point out.
Do YOU think of these twins as one person?
If you don't then you will likewise understand why i said that having a brain and having an individual mind are not the same thing.
If you actually do think these two girls are just one person and have no individual identity apart from one another, then we really don't have anything meaningful to discuss.
