Man divided

A common teaching among some fundamentalist Christians is that man became man when God breathed into his nostrils. Until then, man was merely matter — inanimate, lifeless. Some of these same fundamentalists believe that when a person dies, that person is divided: the spirit goes to one place, the soul to another, and the body into the earth. Yet, is there scriptural evidence to support such a view? Is a person really divided upon death?

Regarding the teaching of the “Word of the Kingdom,” it is held that the spirit of a Christian is saved, but the soul and body are not (yet saved). But it is not clear how the soul and body are ever saved. If someone who teaches the “Word of the Kingdom” can tell me, please comment.
