Q: I have heard the teaching that cremation is not biblical and that believers should have a burial rather than be cremated when they die. Is there any biblical command against cremation?
A: In the Mosaic Law cremation was not allowed, but Mosaic Law is not applied to New Testament saints and therefore cremation is a valid option for believers today. Given enough time the body will return to dust anyway and cremation simply speeds up the process but is not prohibited for believers. It is not an option I choose for myself since I am heat sensitive.
