Then the serpent said to the woman, "You will not surely die".
This is similar to saying, "You have an immortal soul". The same lie has been universally believed throughout the history of humanity. It is believed that when a person dies, his soul continues to live on and he remains conscious in the same way as before his physical death. This is illogical and confusing as it raises the question 'How can a person be conscious without a physical or spiritual body?'
There is not a single reference in the Old Testament, which can be remotely understood to support the doctrine of the immortal soul. In fact, the Bible says quite the opposite that the soul that sins shall die.
