I know, I know.

I'm a lazy good for nothin lousy typer.
I love my Catholic friends, really I do, but do they seriously have to make everything so complicated? I'm sorry, I'd love to have been able to make heads or tails out of that, but it's just not worth the effort. A simple answer anyone?

I too love my LDS friends, really ( had a wonderful 3 hour conversation with an elder 2 summers ago within the temple grounds in salt lake city. He is a wonderful man ), and if anyone can come up with a short and simple answer, go for it.

I expressed a simple answer eaqrlier ( I think ) on this thread, but I'll try another one.

The soul is our own individual uniquely human gift from God.

The spirit is uniquely God ( or for non-trinitarians ) uniquely of God.

The game plan, is to infuse our soul (or have our soul infused ) with the Spirit ( or again for the non-trinitarians ) the Spirit of God.

You asked and I tried. But I can't really defend it. It's too simple.
