The human body is more than just flesh, bones and blood. Genesis 2:7 says: “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” or “living being”. Humans and animals alike have the breath of life. Genesis 1:30 informs us that the beasts of the earth, the birds of the air, have life or the breath of life. The expression, ‘living being’ in both the Authorised Version and the New International Version is translated as ‘living creature’ in Genesis 1:20, 24. However, humans are unique because only humans can claim to have been made by the Spirit of God. Job 33:4 says “The spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty has given me life”. The NIV is virtually identical. Job also said this: “But there is a spirit in man; and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding”. The NIV renders it as “it is the spirit in a man, the breath of the Almighty, that gives him understanding”. God’s spirit and God’s breath are the same. The soul and the spirit are the immaterial aspects of humans.
The spirit is the element within humans that enables us to have an intimate relationship with our creator, in whose image we are made. Spirit is what connects us with God, who is spirit: “God is a Spirit; and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:24). King Solomon asked “Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?” (Ecclesiastes 3:21) He concluded: “Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.” (Ecclesiastes 12:7). Before Jesus died he cried out and said, “Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit; and having said thus, he gave up the ghost” (or, breathed his last – NIV) Luke 23:46. Stephen, as he was being stoned to death, prayed: “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit” (Acts 7:59). The spirit returns to God.
Soul refers to both the immaterial and the material aspects of humanity. Whereas human beings have a spirit, human beings are souls. Soul means life. When Rachel died after giving birth to Benjamin, it was said (in Genesis 35:18) “as her soul was departing (for she died)” or, “as she breathed her last (for she was dying)” (NIV). Soul can refer to the whole person, whether alive or in the afterlife. Revelation 6:9-11 says that the souls of those who were slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held were under the altar, and they cried out with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?” They speak, and they receive an answer! They were given white robes and instructed to rest yet for a little season. The Christian belief is that the souls of deceased saints are waiting to be clothed with their heavenly body. This will happen on the day Christ returns to earth, with those saints, and dead bodies will rise from the grave, being clothed with bodies made fit for heaven as they rise to meet Jesus in the air. It is noteworthy that although some Christians think it is more correct to say the spirit, rather than the soul, when speaking of the period between physical death and the Day of Judgement, both the AV and the NIV clearly say it is souls under the altar, not spirits.
The soul and the spirit are connected, but separable: “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit…” (Hebrews 4:12) The soul is the essence of humanity – it is who we are. The spirit is that aspect of humanity that connects with God.
Am I ready to get my ears pierced?
It looks like your mom is standing behind some type of religion or something. Plenty kids get their ears pierced within the first year on this planet. I was 11 when i got my ears pierced, and 13 when i got my snake bites. I currently have 1/2 inch stretched ears and snake bites, septum in two days, and I'm only 15.
It's all up to your mom in the end, since she is basically in control of you. But personally it's pathetic in my opinion if something as small as ear piercings can be such a big deal.
Unless it's some type of rule in your city, which i highly doubt that it is, then there's no rule about it, just what your mom says. You are NOT too young.
My whole body is sore?
Have you seen a dermatologist? I think you should.
Goldenseal is a natural antiseptic; vitamin E is healing and soothing to the skin. Make a paste by combining the contents of three 500-milligram capsules of Goldenseal (or 1 teaspoon of Goldenseal powder) and 800 international units of vitamin E (pierce capsules and squeeze out the oil). If the resulting mixture is too dry, add a few drops of olive oil.
Apply this to the affected area three times daily.
