What does the Bible say about... CREMATION? Why were Christians so concerned about proper disposal of the body? Here are 7 reasons: 1. The Patriarchs of the Bible were examples. 2. The body of every human was created by God, bore His image, and deserved to be treated with respect because of this. 3. The centrality of the Incarnation. When the Word became flesh, God uniquely hallowed human life and bodily existence forever. 4. The Holy Spirit indwelt the bodies of believers, making them vessels of honor. 5. The Cremated of the Bible were "cursed." 6. The Christian's body belongs to God: it is not ours to destroy by fire or any other means 7. The teaching and example of Jesus. He was buried and raised bodily from a grave (not an urn) so Christians believed that their burial was a witness to the resurrection yet to come.
