Man is a spirit that lives in a body. The teaching that the spirit of man is a separate entity, the soul of man is a separate entity and the body of man is a separate entity is not accurate. Man is a spirit primarily. That means his sphere of reality is the realm of the spirit. Man's spirit cannot interact with earth realm because based on the law of territory, it must have a material body that is consistent with the ecosystem for it to function. God made man's spirit a legal entity on earth by giving him a material body, but there was a challenge and God needed to solve it, because the earth realm and the realm of the spirit, they are both part of God's kingdom but their dimension mode of operation makes it impossible for spirit to operate. So, the spirit cannot relate with the body because there is a disparity.
So God decided to create a bridge, the faculty that connect the spirit and the body. He called it "the mind" that mind consist of will, emotions and intellect, those faculties were put as the bridge that the spirit will use to interact with the body, and the bridge that the body will use to execute the impulses of the spirit. When you call man a soul, what you mean is the spirit in partnership with the faculty of consciousness. That is what is called a soul. And also, the realm of the spirit control the physical realm, the bible tells us that, that things that are seen came from the thing that are unseen. Man being a spirit and dwelling in a body has a advantage of the duality of realms. That dual nature is what makes the body to receive impulses that cannot be explain. The same way that there are physical senses, there are also spiritual senses. So, man is a spirit who has a soul and lives in a body. The soul is the faculty that make the spirit of man relate and connect to the body.
