' Last Sunday morning Rev. C. E.
Shields of the First Foreign Church
found his text in-Genesis 2:7. It
"And 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
The sermon was as follows:
A very respected frieud once
told me that he had never heard
from the pulpit a definition and
discussion of the soul. He was a
man well advanced in years, He
was a keen observer and a Christian
thinker as well as a Christian
worker. Our conversations on this
subject suggested to me a possible
neglect on the part of the ministry.
We are continually dealing with the
.spiritual nature, in its relation to
time and eternity. In any realm
of thought there arc some axioms
we must take for granted. Our re
ligions world is no exception. The
soul is one of these accepted verities.
But it is well occasionally to turn our
thought to the foundation upon
which we stand. If we find no de
fects it is inspiring to note the per
fection, and the manner of building.
There was a period in the world's
history when thought was generally
turned toward such subjects. That
time has gone by, and a ma
terial tone is doiniuent. For this
reason it -seemed to me wise, and I
hope it may be profitable for us to
give our attention this morning to
the human soul. The text docs
not define, but it dees concisely state
the origin of the soul and its re
lation to God and our material
mortal body. This whole ac
count in Genesis is one of prime
interest. It touches upon the very
beginnings. It is not, and was not
intended to be a scientific account
of all the processes which the Al
mighty employed in creation.
Scientists have expended volumes
on the.se great questions and have
not reuched their final conclusions.
We could scarcely expect even the
pen of Revelation to cover the entire
ground in three brief chapters.
But we do find here stated the
place and power of God at' the be
ginning, His relation to all creation
and to mankind in particular.
Whether the days here described
were periods of hours or ofc:nturies
is immaterial, so long as the time
witnesses the working out of Je
hovah's perfect plan. Many de
voted scholars will maintain that
throughout creation God very
largely made use of secondary
means. We see no reason to dis
pute this possibility. But whether
the account here tells us of a fiat
creation, or a creation through
secondary forces, we must at three
points look for the immediate crea
tive act of God. First at the crea
tion of matter, second at the intro
duction of life, and third in
creation of man as a living soul.
This brings us to the portion of the
account from which our text is
taken. The first part of the passage
shows a creation apparently finished
on an equality with the lower orders
of animal life. Man was created in
the same sense and completeness in
which they were created. Then
this important statement is added:
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. No
such statement is made with respect
to any other work of creation and
1 herein lies the crowning excellence
of man. Here is the introduction
' of that other and higher element
It is man's title to no
To give a satisfactory definition
of the soul is not easy. We define
by giving components and attri
butes, but when we get down to ele
ments we have no components. The
chemist may easily define the com
pounds which come into his labora
tory. But when it comes to a defi
nition of the elements which com
pose his compounds; the task is

"Personality is ituleliunble because

the same is true of the soul. But

by without an effort to determine. 1

which may appear in definition.
Calvin says, "The soul is an im
mortal yet created essence, an in
corporeal and indivisible substance,j
Which inhabits the body as its dwel-,
ling, not only to animate its parts 1
but also to hold supremacy in the .
government of human life." Dr. 1
Charles Hodge says, "The soul is
an essence entity or substance, the ,
abiding subject of its various states '
You will notice that these agree, 1
and agree with scripture first in
saying that the Soul is an essence, j
a reality. It is not an appearance, 1
not an activity, but is the substance
behind such appearance or activity. I
The soul is no less real because it
is unseen. There was a time when
the unseen seemed most real to
men. Because it was real, their
darkened imagination peopled it i
with all sorts of unseen terrors. I
Modern trend of thought is all in 1
the opposite direction, and it seems 1
about to take us to the other ex
treme It has dispelled the im
aginary terror, but it threatens
also to sweep us away from our
appreciations, of the unseen realities.
And yet modern discovery has
brought us abundant proof of a re
ality of unseen forces even in the
material world. We see the force of
gravitation bind the planets in
their places. It maintains material
order where otherwise chaos would
reign. Yet this great factor in our
material economy is known only by
its activities. Man never has and
doubtless never shall be able to dis
cover its essence. Electricity may
well illustrate the same point. Its
activities are so well known that
it has become one ol the most use
ful factors in the industrial world.
Yet potent as it is, it is an unseen
agency known only by its results.
Now when these things are daily
before us, why should we doubt the
reality of the unseen.
Believiug that the soul is a real
entity, we also believe that it is a
different entity from the body be
cause the phenomena of its manifes
tations are different. The manifes
tations of mind and matter are dif
ferent. They arc of an entirely
different order. Therefore we not
only may we must believe that
mind and matter are two entirely
different substances. Cousin says
"to identify matter with mind or
mind with matter, it is necessary to
pretend that sensation, thought,
volition, are reducible in the last
analysis to solidity, extension
figure, divisibility etc; or that
solidity, extension, figure, etc., are
reducible to sensation, thought,
will." This is either materialism
or idealism. If we were compelled
to choose between the two we would
cuoose tue latter, it would perhaps
at last bring us to God, while the1
former could never lift us above
the bonds of the dead matter on
which we tread. But scripture
teaches a difference between mind
and matter; between soul and
body. The two have their constant i
inter-relations and sympathetic ac-1
tivities, but between them there is
a great gulf fixed which prevents .
the passing from one to the other.
There is no mingling or fusing of (
their original substances. The text j
before us teaches this. Man in his
physical body was first created from
the dust of the ground. Here is
the material man. When this
creature was complete God breathed
into his nostrils the breath of life,
and man became a living soul.
Here is the spiritual man. The
two are manifest during life in the
same form. We refer to the one,
the other, or to both together, as
man. But at the same time we
recognize these two factors as
different in their substance, different
in their oriinn and different in their
end. The God-breathed breath of life
is what makes man a living soul.
