Are the souls immortal?

“Almost all who profess they are Christians and that they believe in the Bible also believe in the immortality of the soul. So I was surprised to find out that Iglesia ni Cristo rejects this doctrine. Why?”


Does the Bible teach the immortality of the soul? This is what the Bible says in Ezekiel 18:4:

“Behold, all souls are Mine; The soul of the father As well as the soul of the son is Mine; The soul who sins shall die.” (Ezekiel 18:4 NKJV)

Since all men have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (cf. Rom. 3:23), thus, upon a person’s death, the soul dies. The Bible also tells us that when a person dies his soul cleaves to the dust:

“My soul clings to the dust…” (Psalms 119:25 NKJV)

Because the soul dies when a person dies, the Bible also teaches that a person who dies will bever return to his house, nor shall

“As the cloud disappears and vanishes away, So he who goes down to the grave does not come up. He shall never return to his house, Nor shall his place know him anymore.” (Job 7:9-10 NKJV)

Therefore, the belief on the immortality of the soul contradicts the teaching of the Bible. The Holy Scriptures explicitly tell us that upon a person’s death, the soul dies.
