Perhaps that meant the part of your soul that was God died off with the onset of sin in the world. Perhaps that is why we need to be born again . Do we reaccept the piece of God by faith in Jesus?
Maybe we were like snowflake babies . Those are the already fertilized eggs that are frozen and saved until claimed by the perspective parents. Did God begin to create our souls in heaven until there was a baby ready for us capable of carrying out our assignment?
Please feel free to chime in with some help for me. My imagination can run away with me.
