Will anyone help clarify the differences through defining terms? 1. Conscience, 2. Mind, 3. Soul, 4. Spirit, and 5. Holy Ghost
Also, when we ascend to heaven or if we were to descend to hell, what goes with us? Does the soul go with the spirit? I believe I understand that when we are born again, our individual spirit dies and becomes replaced by the Holy Spirit, or Holy Ghost. But, doesn't scripture say somewhere that nothing can go up into heaven that has not come down from heaven? And since that is the case, how can our souls go up into heaven, because nothing is mentioned about us receiving a new soul when we are born again, only that we receive a new spirit. How does this work?
And when do we receive a conscience? Before we are born? What is the difference between the convictions of our own conscience and the convictions of the Holy Spirit? How can we tell them apart? Why do we need a conscience if we have a spirit guiding our conduct?
Thank you for your answers! :)
