Is Man A Soul Or Spirit ?

I have had the understanding that man is a spirit and God is a spirit.

Eccles. 3:21

    Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?

Zech. 12:1

    The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the[b] spirit of man [/b] within him.

Until I met a man of another religion that says man is a soul. I put up an argument and he made reference to the bible, that even in my bible it is there.

Genesis 2:7

    And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Question: Is man a soul  or a spirit?

If the bible says Man became a living Soul , then Man is a soul

Genesis 46:22

   These are the sons of Rachel, which were born to Jacob: all the souls were fourteen.

Can you site categoricaly where in the bible it says Man is a spirit? I Know it says God is a spirit.

John 4:24

   God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

I see what you're trying to say, but even within your own paradigm you are wrong.  There is bone inside too.  So you should say that man is flesh and bone.

Man is pure flesh and blood.

Man is a spirit from my own point of view. But I never really gave attention to that Genesis part before.

Why should you make sure that there is lots of DHA in prenatal vitamins you take? This article talks about the importance of consuming high amounts of DHA omega-3 fatty acids for your baby's development.

When you are pregnant, a baby totally relies on you for all it's nutritional needs. So you should make it a priority to consume enough of whatever it needs to fully develop.

One of those things that a fetus needs to fully develop is DHA omega-3 fatty acids. The human brain is made up of 30% DHA omega-3, so making sure you consume enough of it is of up most importance.

If you don't consume enough of it, then your baby will draw DHA from YOUR BRAIN. And if you can believe it, some mothers have shown a loss of 3% of their brains cells because they didn't consume enough DHA omega-3 fatty acids!

These give both the baby and even the parent to enjoy healthy living; most especially the babies grow richly where they're not engrossed with malnutrition that can lead their dysfunctional status. For details, see: www.inforesourcesworld.info.
