God is a spirit being, meaning his body is composed of a substance called spirit. God also has a unique kind of eternal life within that body composed of that substance called spirit, but that eternal life God has within himself produces some kind of light (His glory) and it shines right through his body composed of spirit.

Spirit is a substance. God can make bodies out of this substance. God didn't need to create this substance, because it already exists. He can make or form any kind of body with this substance of spirit.

I disagree, God made man and breathed into him the "breath of life". The physical wasnt formed ex nihilo.

God made and form and created the first Adam. What was created? Being created in the image of God means that we must view ourselves as intrinsically valuable and richly invested with meaning, potentially and responsibilities. We are to be and to do on a finite scale, what God is and does on an infinite scale.

By virtue of being created in the image of God, human beings are capable of reflecting his character in their own life; animals possess none of these qualities. What distinguishes people from animals is the fact that human nature inherently has godlike possibilities.

Omniscience, omnipotence, or omnipresence, none of these other divine attributes have been ascribed to the human race as part of the image of God. We have been created to reflect God in our thinking and actions, but the physical sustained by God and dependent upon him for our existence in this world and in the world to come.

Developing a godly character in this present life, this will be our personal identity in the world to come. It is the character or personality that we have developed in this life, that God preserves in his memory.

Well and this IS why for the most part humans dont behave as animals until they are impressed upon to do so. Most people would agree that things like murder is wrong. Things like that.

By virtue of being created in the image of God, human beings are capable of reflecting his character in their own life; animals possess none of these qualities. What distinguishes people from animals is the fact that human nature inherently has godlike possibilities.

Define God.

God is a spirit being, meaning his body is composed of a substance called spirit. God also has a unique kind of eternal life within that body composed of that substance called spirit, but that eternal life God has within himself produces some kind of light (His glory) and it shines right through his body composed of spirit.

What is spirit?
A metaphysical state of being

Spirit is a substance. God can make bodies out of this substance. God didn't need to create this substance, because it already exists. He can make or form any kind of body with this substance of spirit.
I disagree, God made man and breathed into him the "breath of life". The physical wasnt formed ex nihilo.

God made and form and created the first Adam. What was created? Being created in the image of God means that we must view ourselves as intrinsically valuable and richly invested with meaning, potentially and responsibilities. We are to be and to do on a finite scale, what God is and does on an infinite scale.
Well and this IS why for the most part humans dont behave as animals until they are impressed upon to do so. Most people would agree that things like murder is wrong. Things like that.

By virtue of being created in the image of God, human beings are capable of reflecting his character in their own life; animals possess none of these qualities. What distinguishes people from animals is the fact that human nature inherently has godlike possibilities.

Omniscience, omnipotence, or omnipresence, none of these other divine attributes have been ascribed to the human race as part of the image of God. We have been created to reflect God in our thinking and actions, but the physical sustained by God and dependent upon him for our existence in this world and in the world to come.

Developing a godly character in this present life, this will be our personal identity in the world to come. It is the character or personality that we have developed in this life, that God preserves in his memory.
Certinaly so!

God is a spirit being, can a spirit being breath, no. Now we have a figure of speech. God created the whales, what did he create? Blood life. Once blood life exists, he has the power to put that blood life into whatever body he makes or forms. "Breath of life" God put that blood life into the first Adam and he became a living soul.

"For the soul of every creature is the blood of it," the phrase "every creature" suggests that the reference to blood apply to both humans and animals. We have here a most important insight revealed into the essence of human nature; soul and blood are identical.

Actually no, otherwise you could just do a blood transfusion regardless of who it came from. The soul supercedes anything physical

The two are indissolubly connected because the body is the outward form of the soul and the soul the inward life of the body. The body and soul are an indivisible unity; people are seen from two different perspectives. The body is the physical reality of human existence; the soul is the vitality and personality of human existence.

Define God.

Words are assigned a common definition in its respective language by the majority of the people that use that language. Individuals cannot make a decision to change the definition at will so lets take a look at how the word "god" is technically defined.

God (definition)

1. God
a. A being conceived as the perfect, omnipotent, omniscient originator and ruler of the universe, the principal object of faith and worship in monotheistic religions.
b. The force, effect, or a manifestation or aspect of this being.

2. A being of supernatural powers or attributes, believed in and worshiped by a people, especially a male deity thought to control some part of nature or reality.

3. An image of a supernatural being; an idol.

http://www.thefreedictionary.com...

By definition, one must believe in an interventionist God to be a theist. Technically, if someone believes in a non-interventionist consciousness, they would still be considered an atheist.

Spirit is a substance. God can make bodies out of this substance. God didn't need to create this substance, because it already exists. He can make or form any kind of body with this substance of spirit.

Can he (sic) make this substance?

sic? God has the power to make or form anything once it exists. God also has the power to create a substance that never existed, but once it exists, he can only make and form with a substance that exists.

You make that statement as if you know it is a fact. Do you realize that is mere speculation and not an established fact? When your source is a book that makes claims with no empirical evidence, it remains speculation regardless of how much you believe it or wish it were true.

I know it to be true because its what the hebrew says when you disect genesis 1:1 and 1:2
