The article was nice and informative. I agreed with it but I did have a question about one thing.
Since our body returns to dust then is it wrong to have your body cremated or not.
Thanks for your comments.

Dear D.J.,
God Bless your beautiful heart and thank you for writing. The first thing we must understand is that the body of flesh is not what will be risen in the resurrection.

1Co 15:42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
1Co 15:43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
1Co 15:44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

The second is that our body is but dust.

Gen 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Dust and ashes are really the same thing just one is formed more rapidly by fire.

Gen 18:27 And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes:

So cremation is nothing more than burial of the body after causing it to return to the dust state rapidly by use of fire rather than the slow process of decay. We see nothing wrong with this or any form of burial as long as the body is not given more importance than God has taught us in His Word.

All Gods Blessings,
The Believers

Good Newsflash

Would you be shocked to learn that the Scriptures do not speak of an Immortal Soul. No other teaching has caused as much confusion and error as this great lie. Genesis 3:4 states "And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:"  Find out the truth about death that the Devil does not want you to know!  Click here to learn The Truth.
