  1. Spiritual death

    The concept of spiritual death has varying meanings in various uses and contexts. "Spiritually dead" person may mean someone who is not spiritual - one, who identifies himself with dead matter, though he is a living conscious being. Thus first meaning for "spiritual death" is "to become atheist". Another, narrow, "purified" meaning of "spiritual death" is "death in a spiritual way", "to die being a spiritual person, not being an atheist". Thus this means that "spiritual death" relates to two egos: soul, and ego. Difference in meanings come from misidentification of eternal soul to be "spiritually dead" or "material", which is nonsense for theist. For theist there is no such thing as "spiritual death". Matter can be only dead, and soul can only be eternal. As put by the LDS Church, "the body is as a glove, and the spirit the hand that moves". One cannot say "dead life", or "alive death". For contrast you can guess what is the meaning of "material life: life is always spiritual, though "material life" would mean just "to live having materialistic values".
