That being said. A soul is a spiritual or immaterial part of a human being or animal regarded as immortal. That sounds kinda religious to me. The intellect is the faculty of reasoning and understanding objectively, especially with regard to abstract or academic matters. How is it the same then a soul.
The immortality of the soul is a philosophical rather than religious concept. Both Plato and Aristotle believed it, and the arguments set forth for it by all subsequent philosophers are of a philosophical rather than religious nature.

How do you teach a Christianity with out using what's in the bible?
Of course the Bible is an important part of Christianity. But that doesn't mean that no other source of religious insight exists.
