    God only give soul to Human-being, not animal. Show me in the Bible where it said animal has soul and I'll change my perception on it.

    the bible is man made and the men who made it arrogantly thought that this being liked only them. in fact they think they are the only ones with souls . the rest of humans don't have them according to them. so,are you a hebrew? if not you have no soul either. according to the bible. bible  fairy tales

    I am going to the Bible to see what the Bible says about that subject.
    Let us go the 17th. Chapter of the book of Leviticus to find the answer. Let us start with the 10th. verse. It reads like this :And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, that eateth any manner of blood; I will even set my face against that soul that eateth blood, and will cut him off from among his people.
    Verse 11: for the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the alter to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul. Verse 12: Therefore I said unto the children of Israel, ‘No soul of you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger that sojourneth among you eat blood.’ Verse 13: and whatsoever man there be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, which hunteth and catcheth any beast or fowl that may be eaten; he shall even pour out the blood thereof, and shall cover it with dust.
    Here is the important verse;
    Verse 14: FOR IT IS THE LIFE OF ALL FLESH; THE BLOOD OF IT IS FOR THE LIFE THEREOF: THEREFOR I SAIDUNTO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, YE SHALL EAT THE BLOOD OF NO MANNER OF FLESH FOR THE LIFE OF ALL FLESH IS THE BLOOD THEREOF:WHOSOEVER EATETH IT SHALL BE CUT OFF.’
    The word ‘LIFE’ is ‘SOUL’. NEPHESH
    Do animals go to Heaven? Well the 11th. Chapter of Isaiah suggest that they do. I am reminded of the song “ Peace In The Valley”.

    Job 12:7-10:
    "But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee;
    and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee:
    Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee:
    and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee.
    Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this?
    In whose hand is the soul of every living thing,
    and the breath of all mankind."

    When you hear the name "soul" it sounds like it pertaining to human, but when you look deeper into it, it's the essential element that is part of something, and that's include animals.

    DO ANIMALS HAVE SOULS? (Updated)

    When asked the ultimate question, “Do animals have souls?” Like most people, I would have said no until I learned the truth:

    It is a common misconception that the soul and the spirit are one in the same. Let’s take a deeper look into this mystery.

    In Genesis 1:30 (NIV) we see that all living creatures have the breath of life given by God:

    30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.

    And then in Genesis 2:7 (KJV) we see that the ‘breath of life’ is our soul that makes us alive:

    7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

    The soul is the engine or power plant behind every living thing that makes them alive, but man also has a spirit in addition to the soul that allows him to commune with God.

    In Genesis 1:26 (NIV) God gives man a spirit and places him above animals:

    26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness (the spirit), so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,[a] and over all the creatures that...

    This puts man on a higher conscious level than animals and makes animals exempt from the evangelistic fold because they don’t have to seek salvation. They are honorary residents of heaven and they simply display God’s glory in all His majesty.

    The answer to the question is YES animals do have souls because the soul is the breath of life which is very different from the spirit of men. . .

    Ecclesiastes 3:19-20 (ESV)
    19 For what happens to the children of man and what happens to the beasts is the same; as one dies, so dies the other. They all have the same breath, and man has no advantage over the beasts, for all is vanity.[a] 20 All go to one place. All are from the dust, and to dust all return.

    The only reason why Im saying no is because Jesus shed his blood for humans...that we may have eternal life not animals. Now on the other side I know there are animals in heaven because Jesus returns on a white horse. I hope my little friends are waiting for me but I dont know for sure.
