Cremation: How Should A Christian be dealt with after death?
Is there something inherently pagan about cremation? Can a cremated body be in the resurrection? Must all Christians be buried? Does the Bible provide any guidance on this sensitive subject? Does the Bible opposes the practice of cremation, in view that the prophet Amos said God is angered against Moab “‘because he burned as if to lime, the bones of Edom’s king’” (Amos 2:1 NIV)? How would you counsel a grieving Christian family with a sudden death and little money for funeral and burial? CM
