    I'm doing a paper over this topic and could use some input. Which do you think is more important Soul Salvation or Soul Development. My professor thinks we have wasted 2000 years on Soul Salvation and Blind Faith instead of developing our soul. Me personally - I think they go hand in hand. I'm not here to debate - I just want to see others opinion. It would help me with my paper!

    Just a question to help clarify your question. What parameters are you and your professor using to define salvation and development?

    In the end soul salvation is more important, during the process of life soul development is more important.

    Should people cling to religion and "blind faith" and just believe because someone told you to do so or should you go and search for the truth and develop ones mind to understanding how and why they are what they are.... Like ancient Africans used to say "Know Thy Self, and then you will know God."

    I have always thought of it as the electricity/energy in your body that makes you heart pump which can not be created or destroyed.

    Its a Humanities class - the history of spirituality and religion. I need 10 more hrs to get may masters and it sounded like an interesting class.

    Are you having to work with the premise that they are mutually exclusive?

    For example, are you able to entertain that soul development can still occur after life on earth has expired? (Salvation achieved, development in progress)

    or eastern philosophies that only though soul development can salvation (enlightenment) be achieved?

    Like I said - I'm no here to debate - just get input - There are many definitions for soul - choose the one you like - And if you think there is no such thing as a soul - go with that - It matters none to me - I'm not trying to be right or wrong - just trying to grow - and write this paper.

    Maybe the quantum state of the neurons in your brain?

    I can write it from what premise I want to but I lean towards "only though soul development can salvation (enlightenment) be achieved"

    The go hand in hand, if we are talking about Christianity.

    Just as a devil's advocate (irony) here...would a Christian philosopher believe he had achieved full development of his soul by merely accepting Christ as his savior (The Christian requirement for Salvation)?
