Tell me more about this.

     When Adam was created, "the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul." (Genesis 2:7 KJV.) So dust + breath = a living soul (a person).

     And in Psalms we read, You hide Your face, they are troubled; You take away their breath, they die and return to their dust." (Psalms 104:29).

     According to Scripture (Job 27:3; Ezekiel 37:1-10; Ecclesiates 3:19,20; Genesis 7:21,22), "spirit" and "breath" are the same thing. "Soul" is a term used to identify the whole created being, person, or creature. It is used when refering to both man or animals. (Revelation 16:3; Numbers 31:28; Joshua 10:37). So, death is the reverse process to that of the creation of life. God formed man and made him. But it took breath to make him a living being (soul). On the other hand, the body minus the breath produces death.

So what is the whole truth about death?
