When We Die

Thursday after Pentecost 20
October 22, 2009

The Lord be with you

In Genesis 3:19 God says to Adam, “By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” We have all heard this passage many times at funerals, but does it have any meaning in reference to how we treat the bodies of the deceased? Does the Bible in general have anything to say, or any pattern we might follow, in reference to that which was the temple of God? Such will be the questions we examine in this coming Sunday’s (Reformation Sunday) adult Bible study at Lamb of God Lutheran (LCMS). The question submitted is “Genesis 3:19 in regard to embalming and cremation.” As always, everyone is welcome. Bible study begins at 9:00 AM.

Blessings in Christ,
Pastor Rickert
