Scientists tell us that our bodies are made from elements of the earth such as:

  • potassium
  • sodium
  • sulfur
  • calcium
  • iodine
  • iron
  • copper
  • hydrogen
  • oxygen
  • nitrogen
  • zinc
  • cobalt
  • phosphorus
  • manganese
  • fluorine
  • carbon
  • chlorine
  • and other trace elements. God used these elements to construct the bones, muscles, blood, and all other things man needs for his body. They must constantly be resupplied to our bodies in the proper amounts or we will become sick.

    Instead of eating dirt, God has created delicious foods containing these elements for us to eat.

    Many times, when the doctor orders a blood test to be done, he wants to find out if the patient has sufficient levels of these elements in the blood. If the level is found to be insufficient, he will, perhaps, prescribe additional capsules of it to be taken or will recommend certain foods which contain the needed element to be eaten.


    After God made man's body, it could do nothing without a life force within it. So God "breathed into his nostrils the breath of life."

    But just what is the "breath of life?"

    We must turn to the Holy Bible for our answer. The following verses are quoted from different Bible translations to show that "breath of life" and "God's spirt" are used interchangeably for the same original word.


    Job 27:3-4 Tells us:

    (King James Version)"All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils; my lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit."


    B>(New English Version) "So long as there is any life left in me and God's breath is in my nostrils, no untrue word shall pass my lips and my tongue shall utter no falsehood."

    (Living Way Version) "That as long as I live, while I have breath from God, my lips shall speak no evil, my tongue shall speak no lies."

    James 2:26 tells us

    (Kings James Version) "For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also."

    (New English Version) "As the body is dead when there is no breath left in it, so faith divorced from deeds is lifeless as a corpse."

    I believe that it is quite clear that the breath of life and God's spirit are the same and it is the life force within man.

    Ecclesiastes 12:7"Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was; and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it."

    Furthermore, we are told by the Holy Bible that man is a house where the spirit of God dwells.

    1 Corinthians 3:16 "Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the spirit of God dwells in you.
