nature of humans Now Im not talking about sin nature here. we all know what that is. What Im referring to is the very constitution of the human make up. There are basically three different views on this subject as far as Chistianity is concerned. The most popular view would be called Dichotomism (Bipartite). This would say that humans are made up of a body(flesh) and a soul. Another view would be called Trichotomism which would say that we are made up of a body-soul and a spirit. The former would make no distinction between the soul/spirit and would consider them the same, where the ladder would make a definate distinction and would say the soul and spirit are indeed not the same thing. The third may not be worth mentioning and talks about body/soul dualism and is not biblical. I came across this study as a byproduct of my study of the humanity of Christ. Now although Dichotomism seems correct to me in theory I came across this verse in thessalonians which looks to support Trichotomism. 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. So i was wondering what others thought of this (or maybe you do not think of this at all).
