Immortal Soul


Satan’s venom: Immortal soul

Christ said:

“Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” (Matthew 10:28)

He can destroy the soul in the fire means the soul can be destroyed (cease to exist just like the body) implying both the soul & body mentioned here to be “not immortal”.
If the soul is immortal here (as your interpretation goes), then the body (also mentioned in the same context here as your soul) must also be “immortal” too.

This is absurd since the body returns to the dust or completely gets destroyed in hell (ceases to exist).

However, note that Christ clearly mentions God’s omnipotence to be “able” to do so (complete destruction till ceasing to exist) but we know from other Scriptures that He “chose not to” only inflicting the necessary age-during fire for our chastisement and betterment.

Why? He is Good (both Loving & Merciful).
If He didn’t chastise at all, we would remain in a sinful & death state (without being healed of our sin & evil). That is why in the lake of fire He destroys both our sin & evil in us.

It’s painful because we’re attached to that evil & sin (loving darkness).

Lastly, Satan is the one who taught men the lie that the “soul is immortal” (implying it intrinsically but literally too) when Satan said in Genesis that “you will not surely die” (implies that your soul won’t really die too = soul being immortal).

I repeat (from an earlier post), that is why it is written in first Timothy that “God alone has immortality” not you, me nor Satan possess immortality. Yes, “alone” means “One Person” only has immortality according to Scripture and He is God (Trinity) in the Father, Son & Holy Spirit. Don’t be deceived folks!


Remember, that He chose to destroy (age-during destruction in Thessalonians via the lake of fire in Revelation for a period of time mentioned as a future age in Matthew 25:46) only the “sin” (and evil in us to completely cease to exist) but “not life itself” which He will then “restore all things as mentioned in Acts 3:21” and also “reconcile all as mentioned in Colossians 1:20” being the True God Who “saves all men” (1 Timothy 4:10) and also “all the rest of the world too” (1 John 4:14).
