The Soul – Sign of God’s Fatherhood
The soul isn’t a thing, so however powerful the microscope you use, you will never manage to see it. Neither can you grasp it; you may as well try to get hold of a ray of sunlight. This invisible and intangible gem has definite qualities, however. These qualities are divine qualities – the soul is free, intelligent and continues to exist forever, just like God. This divine spark points to your identity as a child of God. It shows that you are created in the image and likeness of the Father.
