According to Scripture animals DO have souls. For in-depth research on the subject please read my Article @ /mjthompsons.wordpress.com/2015/06/03/regarding-the-soul/. Not all of the scriptural references to 'SOUL' consistently point to the SAME definition. In addition to the proper definition of the SOUL, in each specific passage of scripture, the associated nature of the existence of the SOUL must also be given careful individual consideration. There is a mention of “the soul of every living thing“ in Job12:10, and specifically, donkeys having a soul – Job 24:5. Therefore, a fuller comprehension of Scripture's use of the English term 'soul' should be appreciated BEFORE dropping anchor on ANY doctrinal stand.

No, Animals do not have souls as humans do according to scripture.

Read this article, it explains this in detail and is not a long article to read.

Well you are so wrong my friend.
Let me ask you this: Do you have a Dog or a Cat?
If you have, then you will know that Animals do indeed have souls as we humans do.

Ultimately it depends on what you personally believe in as that is what you will experience. In my experience, animals do not have souls per say but rather they have spirit. The difference is that spirit can just pop in and out of physical form without being tied to the earthly experience and prolonged lessons that souls experience. I don't see it as any less than the soul experience but just different. As for will animals exist in paradise, my experience is that they do but then again so does anything you wish to experience once you know you are worthy and stop judging yourself.

you say 'pah-tot-oh' I say 'poh-tate-oh' - spirit /soul - often interchangeable, but more frequently distinctly different altogether. An in-depth research of Scripture reveals much on the topic. Aside from some unfortunate issues of semantics, study in the original Hebrew & Greek texts clears up ABSOLUTELY misunderstandings & misappropriations.

I totally agree. That is why I highly URGE everyone Not to Kill and Eat Animals. By going Vegetarian you will be a Healthier person, Earth will be a Cleaner place and you will not have the Soul of a Tortured Animal inside you.

After all, would you Kill and eat your Dog? Would you you Kill and eat your Cat?
Same answers are for Killing and eating Sheep, Goats, and other living Mammals.
