Why do Jehovah's Witness falsely teach that man has no soul when Jesus explicitly said he did?

Jesus said in Matthew 10:28:   "Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell."  (Quote from NRSV bible)

    Who knows. That's just one more of their false teachings.

    Not sure where you got that information but, here's some information about the terms soul and spirit to clear up any confusion of yours. https://www.jw.org/en/publications/books/bible-tea...

      JW's believe the soul and body are the same which is true in some cases. But not in this scripture. Jesus was distinguishing the difference between a body and a person's soul. But here is your JW reference: https://www.jw.org/en/publications/bible/study-bible/books/matthew/10/#v40010028

    Does it say that soul will live on forever and ever?

      It doesn't have to. A soul is a soul NOT a finite body.

    No idea. The human soul is most commonly defined as the mind, will, and emotions of a person. I guess they never accepted that definition.

      Your JW teachings TeeM does not and will not ever supersede the teachings of the bible. It's clear for all to see Jesus identified both separately. Otherwise he would be speaking redundantly and would sound like an idiot.
