Christianity and Cremation

A while back I mentioned a brief blog post by John MacArthur on Christians and Cremation. Today, Justin Taylor let’s us know about a much fuller treatment of the issue on his post called To Bury or Burn: Christianity and Cremation. He gives a nice summary of a full article by David Jones, professor of Christian ethics at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and a link to it.

    Thanks for the links! Our family has chosen cremation for the majority of our family who have passed in the past two decades…Many people find this to be “just un-Christian behavior” and relish in the rebuke. My answer…It makes it difficult for vampires and zombies to prosper.

    You’re welcome. After we die, we’re not in this body anymore. We get a new one. So I don’t see what the big deal is.

    That’s a good answer for people.
