Do not be fooled, tricked, persuaded, charmed or 'educated' by the ever-so clever into beleiving that there is not an 'essential you' that is your soul.
You DO have a soul and souls DO need to be saved in order to have eternal, perfected life, or they perish.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
Jesus, and only Jesus can save your soul.
