1 Thessalonians 5:23
23And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
So I guess judging from this verse that both must be blameless before the lord but do they both go back with him? I think yes because where else would your spirit want to go?
If you are saved our spirit and soul go to God when you die.
Because soul life is in the blood: and flesh and blood

Azheis, first let me say greetings from a fellow Michigander, (temporarily living in the Tulsa area in the state of Oklahoma).
I have to disagree that the soul is in the blood and flesh. Our soul is made up of the mind, will, and emotions. Our soul lives on (as does our spirit) when our bodies give out and die. The body is flesh and blood, and not part of the soul. We are tripart beings like our heavenly Father. Spirit, soul, and body (1 John 5:7-8). God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. Man is a spirit, who possess a soul (mind, will, and emotions), and who lives in a physical body (flesh & blood). Whether one goes to heaven or hell, his/her spirit and soul will live, though the physical body be dead. We will still be able to hear, see, taste, smell, and touch (Luke 16:22-31). God bless.

That's funny! Think I'll try that next time someone ask me.
Okay, here's the thing about Leviticus 17:11. That scripture is talking strictly about animals. The life of the flesh is in the blood, that is in animals only. But Moses isn't speaking about the soul of man. Strong's Hebrew and Greek dictionaries define 'nephesh' as a "breathing creature that is animal". So we see the writer of Lev. 17 isn't talking about the soul of man.
As for Jesus speaking in parables concerning hell in Luke 16, that is a completely erroneous theory. But, I have class early in the morning and I'm unable to go into it right now. I shall however, return! God bless.
