God created both humans and angels. He gave humans spirits and also bodies that we can touch and feel, but He made angels to be spirits only.

In the beginning, God gave Adam and Eve bodies that could live forever. But He warned them that if they disobeyed, they'd die (Genesis 2:17). Because Adam and Eve disobeyed God by eating the fruit, they had to die, and all humans after them have to die too.

Your body will die one day, but the real you inside is a spirit God gave you that will live forever. Jesus said that if people die and go to heaven, "They can't die anymore. They are like the angels" (Luke 20:36a).

Bible Truth

"He is not the God of the dead. He is the God of the living. In his eyes, everyone is alive" (Luke 20:38).

"Sin entered the world because one man sinned. And death came because of sin. Everyone sinned, so death came to all people ... Sin ruled because of death. So also grace rules in the lives of those who are right with God. The grace of God brings eternal life because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done" (Romans 5:12, 21).

"What I'm about to tell you is true. Anyone who hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He will not be found guilty. He has crossed over from death to life" (John 5:24).
