Sorry, but it made me laugh!

Well, I find a lot of good posts here.

Based on some of the posts that I've read here, I prefer to be buried, and I prefer that our church practice BURIAL:
1. It's the Bible practice.
2. Cremation seems to be of paganistic origin.
3. Martyrs were "cremated" at the stake.
4. Burial is economical here.
5. Burial is a matter of conviction.
6. There is no verse in Scripture against cremation; even Paul has no objection to giving his body to be "burned" (as a martyr? or by cremation?)
7. There are a lot of verses for burial.
8. Finally, Christ died for my sins, and that HE WAS BURIED, and that he rose again the third day.
