Is Cremation Christian ©
The Bible teaches it was a supreme dishonor and curse for a person to have no burial. Such a curse was pronounced by God on King Jehoikim of Jerusalem because of his pride and disobedience to God. The prophet Jeremiah declared of him, “He shall be buried with the burial of an ass” (Jr. 22:19); which meant, he would have no burial at all. Josephus, the Jewish historian, states that the king of Babylon cast out Jehoikim’s body, and it lay exposed and unburied not far from the gate of Jerusalem. Others in the Bible were similarly cursed for their ungodly ways: Achan (Jos 7:15); Jezebel (2Ki 9:30-37); Ahab’s descendants (1Ki 21:17-24); Sisera and Jabin (Psa 83:9-10), to name a few.
Donating & Receiving Body Parts (39 KB)
What does the back of your 'Driver’s License' dictate? If you were in an auto accident, run over by a car, or had died of natural causes, would your organs be removed in order to be donated to a transplant candidate? I want you to keep this in mind, that when you decided to make the donation of your body parts you then made the decision to keep the “sin nature” of the recipient alive. Satan would love to have one of his people in the flesh receive an organ of life in order to keep him alive. What if the recipient lives to sin again, and again, even killing another person - do you think that donating an organ to that person was the Christian thing to do?.
SUICIDE (52 KB)
The response to this sensitive subject depends on which of the two soteriological views of salvation one holds: the Arminian view holds that every sin needs to be confessed to be saved, whilst the Reformed view maintains that salvation is a Sovereign act of God and that Christ has atoned on the cross All sins of the elect, e.g. His people. The first view believes that confession of every sin must be made prior to depart from this world to the next, therefore suicide is the most fatal of all sins because the victim cannot not repent of, for he is dead. The reformed view believes that we are saved by the grace of God, not by works (Eph 2:8-9) and nothing (not even suicide) can separate a true Christian from the love of God (Rom 8:37-39).
Should the Death Penalty be Banned? (75 KB)
To us Christians who want to take the Bible seriously, as we should, it is not too difficult to see the Bible’s absolute clear standard concerning the death penalty.
