Dogs Get Scared, Watch This Boxer Scared By A Leaf
Dogs get scared too just like humans or any other animal. If they were they just body parts without souls or spirits, how could this be? Every dog owner knows that dogs have their own unique personalities. That is their spirit or the essence of who they are. God has made it clear in the Bible that dogs have a living soul as well. They have the same “breath” of life in them as humans. I explain this in more detail in my book, Until Heaven Then My Friend. The Bible clearly points out many times throughout the Bible that animals, more specifically dogs, have a spirit that makes them who they are as a living soul.
The fact that dogs get scared too is just a small part of proving that dogs have souls. Dogs are so unique, it surprises me that some people think they don’t have souls or spirits. That got started mistakenly by a small group. It has been accepted by scholars way back that dogs have souls. And certainly when you think about the parts that exist, body, soul and spirit, I don’t see how that could have ever been questioned. Let me explain …
Dogs Have A Body, Soul and Spirit
The body is a container of sorts. It has all the parts to make life, but it is not alive until we have the breath of life. With that breath of life, we become a living soul. If that breath of life doesn’t exist, we are just a bunch of parts, if you will. Isn’t it the same with a dog body. It needs the breath of life. Once that spirit leaves the body, then the body no longer has life. It’s parts need the life giving spirit to “turn on” the parts. It can be a little confusing, but it is the breath of life we are given, whether human or animal, that makes us alive. It is the essence of who we are.
Dogs Get Scared And Feel Shame
Dogs even feel shame because they so want to please us. Here’s a funny video about that.
I think most dog owners would agree that their dogs have a special spirit that is unique to them. The Bible speaks to this more than you might think. It is clear and direct information that is reassuring for us dog lovers. I am not a theologian and I found a lot of clear scripture that didn’t need any special interpretation. That’s why I wrote about it because so many of us grieve the loss of our special furry friends and I wanted people to know that their friends would be heaven waiting for them.
