Do Animals have souls?

Do animals have souls? are they themselves souls? Will they be saved from the corruption of sin? Does Jesus gift of salvation extend to animals? Would animals exist in paradise? Your answers are appreciated.

WOW! That is some Dancing!
And you know this is indeed a good answer to this question, since Dancing is something that only Humans, with Soul do.

Hi everyone, while many of your responses came from diverse perspectives and opinions, they were really helpful and well appreciated.

In "my own" opinion, animals have souls or what I love to call a sense of "I-ness" or self but their souls are not as advanced as the souls of humans and therefore, they have less freedom than we do & also lack the ability to repent.

When God wanted to create animals, He uttered i.e commanded them into existence. i.e God commanded the earth and water to bring forth animals and they came forth. Animals are therefore utterances or instructions of God that come into physical manifestation & just like the instructions that are encoded into devices such as phones and computers, they cannot transcend their current programming i.e they were designed to be what they are which explains why most animals haven't advanced beyond what they were 6,000 years ago. The lamb is remains lamb. It is designed to eat grass and mate. The lion remains the lion....

...It is designed to eat flesh. The eagle remains the eagle. It is designed to fly in the sky and feed on other animals e.g snakes. The vulture remains the vulture. It is designed to scavenge. Their beauty and individuality is expressed in their ability to be what they were instructed to be by the Creator.
Another thing about animals is that many of them demonstrate herd tendencies e.g small animals like ants, termites and bees & larger animals like buffaloes, wildebeests and zebras...

....These group of animals work together as a whole i.e show little or no individuality or identity.

On the other hand, when God wanted to create man, God didn't utter man into existence. God "created" man i.e formed" Him from dust and breathed into his nostrils breath/spirit. Man is more than just an instruction of God. He is a much more advanced self with the freedom to be or not to be.A man can choose to be a monk or an atheist. He can choose to be a vegetarian, a vegan or to eat meat. He can cover himself with clothing or to move around in a state of undress.

He is designed to transcend his current state of consciousness i.e develop tools & become more technologically & scientifically advanced. He can evolve in intelligence & acquire the knowledge of how to go to the moon , invent machines that travel in the air, invent telescopes, telephones, tv and the internet which is why he has the ability to repent i.e to choose to transcend his fallen state (by the grace of Christ)

So man has a much more advanced individual self i.e soul and therefore, he has the ability to change to become what God wants Him to be or to degrade to become what God does not want Him to be (Gen 3:6, Deut 30:19) but animals are programmed souls i.e selves. They are instructions of God that manifest what they are commanded to manifest. The president speaks and his Word is executed by his enforcers. The enforcers usually have to enforce the commandment even if they do not agree with it.

. They have no other option than to obey it. (If they want to keep their jobs of course) But man is a creation of God. He is not merely an instruction of Let there be....and there was. He is a more free and independent self because he was created (i.e given more independence) which is why he has the ability to disagree with God (who is supposed to be his standard). Since animals cannot transcend their current state of consciousness, it means that they cannot on their own partake in God's...

salvation. i.e stop being beastly and reflect God's ideal/original instruction/programming. They will only "share" in the salvation and liberty of those who put on Christ.
Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption "into the" (take note of the emphasis on into the) glorious liberty of the children of God. Rom 8:21

We fell, they i.e animals reflected our fall

We repent and return to God's Kingdom, they reflect our renewed nature "in" God's kingdom (not outside it)

For the creature was made subject to vanity, "not willingly" (Notice the emphasis on willingly), but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Rom 8:20

Yes, I totally agree. In fact I have rarely seen Souls as pure and kind as what I see when I look in the Eye of my Corgi and my Cat. I wish I could say the same for many People.

Yes Animals have Soul. However not all Humans have Soul, such as Trump and the Wall Street Billionare class behind this tool and Republican lunatics like him.

First I agree that animals have a soul. I can see it everyday in my Cat. With that said what has Trump done which is worse than what the Democrats have done?

GF, I assume by:
"killing unborn babies" you are referring to Abortion. So in fact 95% of Abortions in USA are due to the "Soul less" policies of the Republicans since typical Women in USA engages in Abortion because she has NO Healthcare and NO Maternity leave like other Developed Nations have, since USA thanks to Republican and Wall Street Billionaires lacks Universal Socialized Healthcare and Paid Maternity leave for Women.

iz, I did not say that Democrats were really any better than Republicans such as Trump. They are both owned and controlled by the same all Street Billionaire Class. Which fact you can see by the fact that these 2 Parties:
1- Sell War after War after War after War, with Obama bombing 5 Islamic Countries vs Bush bombing 2 Islamic Countries
2- Have failed to put into place even the most basic of Social services which is Universal Socialized Healthcare, what the rest of the Developed World

barista, although I agree with you that "Wall Street Billionare class behind their tool Republican" have No Soul, you have to face the fact that Democrats are just as owned by this Wall Street Billionare class. Just look at Obama and Clinton that waged more WARS than Bush with Hillary promising regime change in Syria! And why? Because Hillary was worried about Syrian children! Ha, what a laugh. What a Soul less person :(
