What do religious people mean when they refer to a soul? Coming from a Christian background, I have spoken to many people about the soul and what it is... except, I have never been any closer to understanding it. Within my Catholic school, I was educated on religious terms, but their definitions have always been so vague that I have never gotten an understanding of what religious people mean when they refer to a soul. Quite frankly, I think that religious people are as clueless as I am when it comes to understanding what the religious terms they use actually mean, the soul being one of them.
What do you think? Do you think that the soul can be defined, or do you think that the soul is a vague term that we don't really have any concept, let alone understanding, of.
