    The Hebrew Scriptures makes it plain that man is not inherently immortal. References to the human soul as dying, heading for the grave, and being destroyed are numerous. Ge 17:14; Jos 10:32 

    The Christian Greek Scriptures, of course, are in harmony and likewise contain references to the death of the soul. Therefore the Christian Greek Scriptures do not dispute or alter the inspired teaching of the Hebrew Scriptures that man, the human soul, is mortal, subject to death. 

    The New Catholic Encyclopedia understates matters when it says: “The notion of the soul surviving after death is not readily discernible in the Bible.” 

    It would be more accurate to say that the doctrine of the immortality of the soul is not found at all in the Bible! 

    Little wonder that the New Catholic Encyclopedia concludes: “The soul in the Old Testament means not a part of man, but the whole man man as a living being.” 

    The New Catholic Encyclopedia admits: “The New Testament remains faithful to this Old Testament understanding of death.” 

    In other words, the New Testament teaches that the soul dies.

    Yes, it is.  The souls of the righteous waited for the hallowing of hell, when Christ came to lead them out.

    Yes, otherwise it could not be described as a place of suffering or torment.

    according to SOME  people when a person has an IDEA  or makes an assertion  then

      expresses  it verbally or written ....... what is ASSERTED

    MUST be accepted by other people as ACTUAL / TRUE / THE CASE

       based on    because  the  person  who expressed it  SAID SO   aka AUTHORITARIANISM      Consciousness is demonstrable

     the  religious / supernatural proposition  termed  SOUL has not been demonstrated terms :  SOUL ( spirit )  SEOUL  ( city in S. Korea  )  SHEOL (grave   place of the dead  per  Hebrew bible )

    Yes! The soul of the deceased person, after separating from his body, is conscious of being in the Ades or Scheol, a world established by God until the day of his judgment.

    There is no one in hell yet, if there is not God's judgment first, after the bodies have been resurrected, who will unite them with their souls.

    But since you, you're a witness to the Guardian tower, don't you think? You'll see it on God's Day of Judgment, then you'll believe it.

    Nothing you speak of is real so you will have to pretend.

    Has any soul been established or proven to exist? Has "Sheol"? No? Then your question is superfluous because there's no for anyone to know anything about it.

    Yes, once the soul enters hell it is aware of the eternal torment.

    Sheol is where the body goes, not the soul.
