What are your thoughts on it being a Christian? Will you be resurrected without a "body"? Although some feel they must be buried, since Christ was buried then resurrected, to ascend into heaven.

What say you?

Your soul is resurrected..not the body. I don't see where cremation is a religious decision but maybe to some it is. I haven't yet decided if I want to be spread in the mountains or buried under a big oak tree with a little bench.

Hello? What do you think happens to your body in the cold damp ground?

Maybe I should be a little more clear........................ we are talking about this in a bible study group that is why I brought to this thread. Yes I realize your body decays in the ground and that we will get new bodies in heaven. There is no preference stated in the bible but it was a good topic of discussion I thought I might get others insight here on.

Although I’m not a Christian , doesn’t Jesus talk about God being capable of creating Jews from rocks?
It was a lesson on pride but I think it could be used as an answer here.
I wouldn’t worry to much about the condition of the husk you borrowed.
Your body, like a used up old rusty car is taken off to the junk yard to be melted down and used for other things. The atoms will just become building material in this universe.

Cheers

I don't like the idea of putting on a suit and shrinking into a skeleton. Maybe that's just me but it seems a little unpleasant. I want to be cremated because it removes all of the decay process and just does an immediate reduction of the body into ashes. I've never quite understood the idea of a skeletal remains suddenly becoming a healthy young body that lives eternally. I don't think it's going to happen.
