     This is the standard Christian doctrine.

     It is not the standard Adorian doctrine.

     In fact most of Adore and Christianity are Co-Blasphemous.

     Who is the 'we' that has no soul until it is developed?

     Have you developed one?  Do you remember not having one?

     Are you saying this because of your own experiences, or
because you were taught this by your elders.

     The Adorian view is that each of is an Immortal Conscious Unit,
an Adorable Operating Pride Source if you want to be poetic about it.

     You ARE and always have been your own Immortal Soul.

     But some down the track have wanted to SELL you permission
to be one and give you a license to survive, so they told you
you didn't have one until you EARNED one.

     These people are all hanging on crosses right about now,
or should be.
