    Re: The breath of life

    I believe all created living beings have the breathe of life...there is nothing in scripture that says God breathed life after Adam but all creatures live and breathe if they are not born dead. God gives life if He chooses to and can do this through His creation or on visitation at every conception/birth. That life as a gift according to scripture can only be eternal through Faith, at this point, for mankind. Animals are exempt from the ability to choose life or death (eternal) as humans have charge over them.

    Romans 4:17
    as it is written, “I have made you the father of many nations”—in the presence of the God in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist.
    Peace to you!

    John 12:46
    “I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.”

    Speaking of God breathing, John 20.22:

    22 When he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit".

    In answer to the poll, I went with 'Adam & Eve', but am open to other possibilities re: ensoulment.

    I chose everyone, including animals, but I'm guessing that wasn't intended in 'everyone'.

    Gen 7:21 And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man:
    Gen 7:22 All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.

    Re: The breath of life

    Everything that lives and breathes has the breath of life in it. As Noeb pointed out. Though I do understand the other points of view as well. In the regeneration of the whole house of Israel...

    Ezekiel 37:9 Also He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.”’” 10 So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army.

    God only breathed into Adam (possibly also Eve in her creation) and it carries over to everyone who came from him.
    You shall remember all the way which the Lord your God has led you in the wilderness these forty years, that He might humble you,
    testing you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not. Dt. 8

    Imo, God breathed into Adam. Eve was taken from the rib of Adam when he was still alive. Eve shared the same bones, flesh and breath of life that was breathed into Adam.
