• With all my heart I agree. At the end of all life is death. The man who gains the world and loses his soul, dies a wealthy man, but he does not benefit. All that he has goes to others. When John Paul Getty died, he died alone. His children hated him. He is reported to have whispered to the nurse "I am the loneliest man in the world". Yet, I attended the funeral once of an ordinary housewife, whose love for Christ and for people led her to befriend people anywhere and everywhere, though her own personal life was very sad. The funeral was so big, someone asked me what important person it was who had died. Now, that is living.
  • "What does" is not a statement, its a question. In other words there is nothing to agree or disagree with regarding the phrase: "What does it profit a man to gain the whole world but to lose his soul?" So: I agree with anyone who says that this question makes no sense.
  • Sounds religious to me and I dont deal with that garbage.
  • Yes, I agree. It is of no benefit for a man to gain the whole world if he loses his life, his soul. Possessions are useful only if one is alive to enjoy them.
  • The verse says: “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” The word ‘if’ is very important,, NOT implying one can gain the whole world.
  • Your version implies one can gain the whole world.
