Tombstone or an Urn?

Question that has come up over the years.

Should I be buried or cremated?

Some insist on bodily burial – so they can be bodily resurrected.

If you believe that, then take heed of my advice,

Stay clear of cannibals.

Believing you have to be buried to be resurrected is absurd.

The miracle of resurrection is so….beyond any other miracle.

Look, if Jesus Christ can raise the dead

The details of bones or ashes, or otherwise are pretty insignificant.

I can assure you that if I was completely eaten and digested

By a great white shark, (not a pleasant way to go),

That would in no way impeded God’s ability to resurrect me.
