A New Mexico Woman Is Selling Her Soul On eBay
People can sell their souls on eBay?
A New Mexico woman named Lori is doing just that, and bidding has already jumped from $100 to $405 in just a day.
Describing it as a "slightly used soul," Lori is offering buyers a "Carfax" so they can see the black and white marks her soul has accumulated over the years. Religious bidders can save Lori's soul through conversion or prayer.
Pop culture abounds with examples of people selling their souls to the devil in exchange for money, however, this doesn't seem to be what's motivating Lori.
After being disabled in a drunk driving accident years ago, Lori told NBC 2 that she feels like she's "at the end of her rope" and just wants to connect with another soul.
eBay's policy forbids users from seling human body parts or remains on its site, and the company has removed listings in the past when people tried to do so. For now, you can check out Lori's soul auction online.

And he'll hunt you down to take it.
Can’t sell your soul. It doesn’t belong to you. It belongs to G-d.
Even if it were worth anything, if SHE doesn't want it why would anyone else invest in it?
The merciless New Mexico sun claims another victim.
Lori, this is just dumb...
How much is shipping?
Will USPS lose it or can it be insured?
I always presumed that God made the soul of each of us, but He graciously gave it to each so each owns their own soul. HOWEVER, one cannot buy or sell Salvation. We have a clear illustration of that mistaken notion in the Book of The Acts of The Apostles, where one man tried to pay the Disciples to give him the gifts associated with salvation. He was a magician by trade and thought one could buy the gifts God gives on His terms. This sad woman is saying the buyer can try to save her soul ... a twist to what the magician tried as recorded in Acts.
I forgot what part of the NT it speaks about how we are like the Trinity - body, soul, spirit and at death what part goes where. I know it talks about the body going in the ground from where it came (Adam from clay) the spirit will return to G-d who gave it and your soul too goes to G-d who gave it also (which in some cases is debated amongst the clergy) I don’t know. I believe the soul is the persona of the person. Who they are I mean.
Isa 28:18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.
Rev 1:18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
Ergo, no agreements will stand except a covenant of faith in G-d.
There is a shelf-life to any and all agreements save G-d's.
Bartb Simpson sold his soul for $5 go Milhouse.
Fortunately for Bart, by the end of the episode Lisa had bought it back and returned it Bart.
When God gave directions to Moses for building the tent tabernacle, I believe God was showing Moses a figure of how He made man in His image, with body soul and spirit. The outer court of the temple is like the body, and what comes and goes from this area does not defile the temple. Tere is an inner sanctum, akin tot he soul, which can be defiles by what is allowed into this area. Then there is the inner Sanctum Sanctorum, where God comes to be inside the person, er, the Temple. IIRC, Pastor James Kennedy wrote a nice little book on this topic. ... I'll see if I can find a link.
I’m willing to bet Satan already has it—for free even.

Most potential buyers will only be interested if a nice body comes with it.
So if I win, I OWN her? Many pics in advance, please. (The soul is cool but I won’t have someone looking like Moochelle walking around the house.)
You must accept all baggage. Good luck!
You can see for yourself in the YouTube video ...
I'm not a theologian or clergy or whatever. It's just stuff I've picked up along the way...
I’m just wondering how the soul of Bart had ownership transferred. I mean it’s nothing tangible, that you can hold it in your hands or something ....
True, but since you are the temporary custodian, you might be able to sublet it.
In the Simpsons, it was the usual Faustian title transfer arrangement.
Almost like lending your mind to someone? G’Day :)
Years ago, some wit had the idea of creating a website called the “Celebrity Soul Auction”, claiming they had invented a camera that could “steal souls” by taking someone’s picture.
They made it interesting by having prices starting at 1 dollar, and rating celebrities by popularity, with their ‘bid’ automatically incrementing over time.
Lots of interesting information about how the souls would be won at auction and sent to their new owner, and how they should prepare a jar for them with the celebrities picture taped to it. Along with proper care instructions and how to punish your celebrity soul if it got all poltergeisty on you.
They put a lot of effort into their EULA as well. It was bigger than Google’s.
Since animals don’t seem to have a sense of good or bad (spiritually), there is a circle there which would assert that animals don’t have a spirit, though they have a soul of life, and this same circle would close back on the notion that without a spirit animlas have no sense of God their creator or of things regarding His nature. But I tend to believe animals can project love, and that’s one of God’s aspects, so who knows?
Why not? Palin was living rent-free in liberals’ heads :)
She still is. Drives Ed Shultz, Mahar(sp?) and all those other liberal talk show morons. Oh, wait, you have to have a brain to be a moron. :)
why do you assume only the devil will buy it? In Les Miserables, the bishop bought the soul of Jean Valjean with a pair of silver candlesticks....
