Please help me. I have questions about cremation. I have found nowhere in scripture where it is to be done. Thank you so much.

I don’t to find it anywhere myself Loretta! If you’re worried that if we cremate our bodies when we die, we won’t be resurrected into a glorified body. That’s just not the case.

Think about the end time when we are called out by the Lord himself. 1 Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: If the dead in Christ shall rise first, think about all those bodies of Christians that have already turned to dust. This scripture doesn’t say that the dead in Christ who’s bodies are still intact shall rise first! It say’s “The dead in Christ shall rise first”. Our Lord created us, he certainly can put us back together in a glorified body. And that glorified body won’t be like this corrupt flesh either. It’ll be perfect. If God needed these old sinful & corrupt bodies, He would have provided a way for them to be preserved. And the scriptures just don’t say cremation’s a sin either. I’m not sure why folks believe it is. If it were, we’d have been told in the scriptures that it’s wrong!

    I wondered about this after I had Kert cremated based on his wishes. Then I thought about “ashes to ashes…dust to dust “. Bodies are just mortal vessels. People die in fires and other tragic ways and the body becomes just bones and dust . I spread his ashes in the oceans in Aruba as he requested and I felt at peace. I don’t think that cremation vs the way we are “embalmed” these days makes a difference as we will all be new and not in the old vessels that contains our spirits. We are spiritual people in a human vessel. Human vessels don’t last in my opinion just what’s most important survives . Which our creator sent us here with and what we take back with us. Just my personal opinion .

    Even if we are alive when Christ returns we will be changed for Paul write “for this mortality must put on immortality (CWIV)”
