"C'mon! Waddya made of?" LOL! Sounds like the beginning of a brawl scene. No, seriously, do you know your origin? Think beyond your nationality. According to the Bible, we are made of two parts: something visible and something invisible.

Gen. 2:7 "...the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being."

We know the Bible never speaks directly, unless God says something like, "I tell you the truth." Then even here, the two elements represent something. Now, I don't know about you, but I don't turn into mud when I take a shower. Nor am I literally "gone with the wind" during a stiff breeze outside. Then what part of us is the dust? (Hint: as dust is visible, what part of us is visible?) If you are guessing the body by now, you are correct. But we are also made of something invisible, as breath is invisible. (Yes, this would be our spirit.)

Actually, so many theologians, phylosophical men and brainiacs attempt to answer the following question, yet they are still bewildered and wondering themselves:
What happens to the soul when a person dies? Is it wisked away out of existence? Does it go somewhere? Let's see what the creator of the soul said,

Eccl 12:7 "...and the dust returns to the ground it came from,
and the spirit returns to God who gave it."

Did you notice the word 'returns?' (How could you miss it, it was highlighted?)
The dust (body) returns to the ground it came from, (i.e. funeral, burial...)and the spirit returns where? Since I may have never met the one reading this, I'm gonna go off the deep end here - have you ever been to Antarctica? (C'mon, no you haven't!) Could you ever return there? But you've been to your own country. So you can always return there, in the event that you have left there at some time. Likewise, how can our spirits return to God if we were never there with God. God is in heaven, so our spirit ultimately returns to where? Heaven! But wait, if we were in heaven before, what are we doing here on earth now? Please stay posted for the incredible teaching that Christ Ahnsahnghong has given us in the Bible!
