Scripture affirms substance dualism…

Scripture affirms an integrated, holistic “substance dualism,” despite detractors within the Christian community. This view is theologically significant in that (a) persons are capable of surviving death while retaining personal identity, and (b) the Incarnation is possible: God, who is spirit, becomes man; the person of Jesus isn’t identical to his body.

Paul Copan, from Loving Wisdom, kindle location 2515
