We are made from dust and we will return to dust. Genesis 3:19 and Psalm 104:29. So whether your body is cremated and is
burned into dust, or buried and rots into dust, you will still turn into dust! In Genesis 2:7 God breathed into the
nostrils of man who was made from dust of the earth. So in the resurrection, He can still breathe life into our bodies.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 speaks of the resurrection of those who died in Christ, who will come back with Jesus and the
rapture of those believers who are still alive. Our bodies are going to be resurrected bodies, 1 Corinthians 15:51-58
and will be different from our earthly bodies. When Jesus was resurrected, He was not at first recognised on the road
to Emmaus, Luke 24:13-37 and Mary at the tomb speaking to the ‘gardener’ did not recognise Him John 20:14-17. In Mark
12:25-27 Jesus speaks about the resurrection, and says that people will be ‘like’ angels.
It would appear that it is not important how your body is disposed of - as you will get a new resurrected one anyway.
What about the faithful martyrs who had been thrown to the lions and other wild beasts or burnt at the stake? If
cremation is wrong then what do you suppose will happen on the day of resurrection to all the missionaries who had
been eaten by cannibals? As the by-product of both these processes, their bodies will be eventually turned to dust,
just the same as a decomposing body. God is the God of the impossible; but what is really important is whether you
die right with God or not. Is Jesus Christ the Lord of your life?
