Depending on your spiritual/religious beliefs (or lack of them), our title today could have radically different meanings for different folks.

Below is a recent, slightly edited conversation between Spirit and Berna. She had asked Spirit for clarification of the terms “conscious being,” “sentient being,” and “souled being.” As Spirit says below, the terms you use don’t matter—it is all God.

Among the Church’s rules was sex, and even thoughts about it, were evil. Except, of course, within the narrow and strictly controlled confines of marriage. Any violation was sure to send you to Hell for all eternity.Read more
