The Soul

Three questions one asks oneself to define their soul

        1. Who am I?
        2. Whose am I?  Suggestions: Psalm 100:3 Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.  1 John 3:1 See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.
        3. Why am I here?
