I personally don’t think that our burial is all that important as there are some that haven’t even been buried such as William Tyndale and Jon Huss because of their faith.

Rv.20:13 “And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.”

1 Cor 15 makes it clear that whatever the case – V42 “So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:”

To be sown in corruption means sown into death not necessarily in a tomb. Whether we are burned, buried or lost at sea we will all be raised up on the last day when that trumpet will sound its blast!

God bless

I understand your point, however as you noted and someone else characterized 9/11............the question was conveyed in a way that a person was still in control of what happened to their remains as to bury or cremate.

People lost at sea or at 9/11 did not have that choice.

I find cremation a distasteful practice, but I have to admit that my opinion on cremation is not backed up directly in Scripture. Given that we are three pages into this topic and nobody has produced a single verse clearly condemning cremation, perhaps we can come to an agreement that there is nothing Scriptural to be said of it one way or another, and we ought to let people do as they will without burdening them with guilt over something that God didn't bother to comment on in his Book.

I think you said it.....................and that is the bottom line. It ain't in the Bible............. Can't put a square in a round hole.

Still trying to absorb all the posts and I've learned quite a bit. You guyz are amazing...........! Brandon.............1 Sam. 31:12-13 was excellent.

Sorry for the multiple posts............I'm still trying to figure out this muti-quote thing.

Noooo...! Sorry. I didn't mean we stayed on topic and you didn't! I was just giving credit to the group for staying on topic. That doesn't always happen!

I just sort of saw how funny this group can be (now, no offense meant to anyone). You ask one simple question about cremation and you get a full on theological debate with 20 different opinions on one point or another. I was just looking at it from what I perceived to be your point of view as a person new to the board and it struck me as really funny.

Wasn't offended in the least bit.................got quite a laugh.

Yes..................lots of grenades hurled at this subject, yet there is some good meat to pull from it. Definitely picked up a thing or too...............iron sharpenth iron, 'eh?

This is a heck of a forum.

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.

"Let every one be persuaded in his own mind."

"The King James Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and PRACTICE."

Sister Amanda,

I apologize to you.
Apology accepted Jassy It certainly happens to us all. Not a problem. I try not to get all worked up as I too often speak before I think...but then I also speak what I think after thinking about it and that gets me into trouble too.

Perhaps we should put a disclaimer

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say will be misquoted then used against you.
