Thanks telstar, To me it is clear this scripture is referring to the growth of our spiritual nature as we work to become 'christ-like.' I don't believe it is discussing the creation of our soul. I think we both agree the soul exists in the body at the moment of conception, thus it exists as the earthly body develops (not after). Even the most evil of people, who do not develop their heavenly nature have a soul from the moment of coneception.
