(Obamanomics) A New Mexico Woman Is Selling Her Soul On eBay

A New Mexico Woman Is Selling Her Soul On eBay

ebay-logo

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.

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?

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.

“Can’t sell your soul. It doesn’t belong to you. It belongs to G-d.”

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.

I would agree, the soul is the behavior mechanism of the person. The spirit is like something I encountered at two years of age; during WWII the Army had buckets made from canvase, with a metal ring in the top and a smaller metal ring int he bottom, with the rings sewn into the canvas. When empty these bucket were flat, for easier storage. But when filled with water that took on the bucket shape, and you could push your finger into the side of the soaking wet bucket and water would run over the top. The sou of man is kind of like that, with the Sprit of God int he bucket, er the soul, when pushed the Spirit flows out to the world indicating what is filling the bucket, er soul, or spirit in the soul if you will.

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.

Most potential buyers will only be interested if a nice body comes with it.

I'm thinking the spirit is the mechanism that makes us aware of a supreme being. Our Indians had the Great Spirit in the Sky and I've read where south sea islanders had that same thing and also the indigenous people here in Australia have it too. The soul defines our character, right. The body is just a vessel like you say with that water bucket. It holds our essence, in this case the water. Has the water changed when it was poured out? Still water. If the bucket collapses and can't hold the water anymore, it's useless and thrown away, such as our bodies will be when it can no longer hold the essence of who we are.

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.

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 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....
