According to Genesis 2:7 God did not make a body and put a soul into it like a letter into envelope of dust; rather he formed man's body from the dust, then, breathing divine that is the dust did not embody a soul, but it became a soul–a whole creature.
The Bible teaches that we consist of body, soul and spirit. "May your whole spirit, soul and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus" (1 Thessalonians 5:23). Our material bodies are evident, but our souls and spirit are less distinguishable. Within Christianity, it is believed the soul continues it's existence immediately after death. Most believe it will do so consciously (rather than in a sleep–like state). At the point of death, God will determine the soul's ultimate fate–eternal punishment or eternal happiness.
In Christian theology, the tripartite view (trichotomy) holds that humankind is a composite of three distinct components: body, spirit, and soul. It is in contrast to the bipartite view (dichotomy), where soul and spirit are taken as different terms for the same entity (the spiritual soul.)
