"City of God" XIII.24

Chapter 24:
In this lengthy section, Augustine discusses the question of what it means that God breathed His Spirit into Adam. It does not mean the same thing as when Christ sends His Spirit to the church, even though the language is similar. In conclusion, Augustine recaps the idea that the spiritual life of a Christian flows directly from God, while those who have lived in rebellion against God do live forever in a sense, but spend that eternity in misery in hell.
