God Alone Has Immortality

1 Timothy 6:16  

Who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.

The apostle Paul extolled the awesomeness of our all-powerful Creator God, who lives in “unapproachable light”! He also says that God “alone” has immortality. What do those who teach the immortality of the human soul make of this?

Instead of looking to nonbiblical traditions, consider what the Bible actually teaches. For more about this, see “Do Humans Have an Immortal Soul?
