satan is identified in scripture as being the god of this world. He hates God and those created in the image of God. He is the author of pagan religions which have always mandated cremation upon death. Cremation is one of satan's devices to declare his undying hatred towards God and those created in His image.

These is no record in scripture of any Godly person being cremated. When Joseph, son of Jacob, died in Egypt, he left instructions that his bones were to be carried back to Canaan and interred with his fathers. This was fulfilled about 200 years later when Joshua led the Children of Israel back Canaan.

Buy a plot and burial insurance.

You made my head hurt with your calling my loved one and me un-godly. I have never heard of a mandated cremation and don't call me un-godly because I have never heard anyone tell or show me that your un-godly if your cremated in the Bible. Joseph the son of Jacobs bones are dust today, so whats the diffrence of speading up the process? And what do you say of all the GOD fearing people who get burned in fires or explosions? Are they un-godly because they were at the wrong place at the wrong time? I think the Bible is simple with a simple message to beleive and love GOD and man makes it hard. But Thank you for your opinion becuse thats what this was all about.

I made no personal judgment regarding you or anyone else in your family. Christians are bound by a covenant relationship with God. Jesus said His friends obey His word. Of course, the Christian community is currently filled with those who "pick and choose" which scriptures they will take seriously.

"People suffering terrible accidents" are irrelevant to this discussion - apples and oranges....

Nice of you to say about judgment but don't remember JESUS teaching anything about not being cremated. I didn't pick n choose and never thought about cremetion until I was in that position. Yes I was raised in a family who beleive in GOD and always went to Church as a child and adult but never read or heard anyone teach or preach about cremation. I did it and just had some thoughts about it, thats all.

Jesus didn't say anything about child abuse either - so you reckon that must be okay too?

You aren't looking for honest opinions based on the scriptures about this subject. You never were. You are simply seeking affirmation for your position. Your conscience is obviously bothering you, and so you are out looking for those of like mind who will help you beat your conscience into submission. How's that working out for you?

Does your scripture say anything about cremation, or just how the bodies of some other people were buried? The scripture also tells that people traveled by donkeys, that doesn't mean we need to travel by donkey today.
I think you are putting way too much into this, and I am pretty certain you don't take everything the bible says literally.

The scripture commands us to follow those who through faith and perseverance, inherit the promises. No one in scripture who feared God practiced cremation. Most pagan religionists did.

Your allusion to donkeys is typical of how so many think at an incredible superficial level on these matters. Paul warned that it is impossible for a carnally(worldly) minded person to understand spiritual matters because their mind is "set" to automatically be at variance towards the ways of God.

Sooooo....I guess what you are saying is that you have NO biblical evidence to support the idea that cremation is wrong?
Once again, you are basing it solely on what they did, while at the same time, ignoring other ways that they lived their lives.
I know it is "impossible" for me to understand spiritual matters (meaning, how your crazy brain works), but it just sounds like you are a huge hypocrite, picking and choosing what you want to support your own belief system. I guess as long as you don't have children, no harm.

I too had a family member cremated due to request and finances. I also struggle with the decision. It was his right to choose so I did what I thought was right. The Bible says that our bodies are just vessels for our spirit, which leaves upon death. I can't see where burying someone is any more natural (after being enbalmed and entombed) than cremation. With cremation, energy is transferred back into the universe. With burial, the body doesn't return back to nature for hundreds of years.
