I went to a funeral and saw things that shouldn’t have been done.
For example, the people who gave speeches pretty much preached the dead man into heaven. Whether a person is going to heaven or hell is not decided by what the living say, that is decided God, and it is best that we leave that to Him (1 Corinthians 4:4-5).
Some of the people didn’t spend time with the man while he was alive, yet they felt they had to come and spend time with his dead body. This is hypocrisy; give the flowers while the person can smell and see them (Colossians 3:12-14; Matthew 25:35-36). Next, the family wanted his funeral at a church, when the dead man didn’t go to church while he was alive. Now a dead body carried into a church location means nothing to God; but a living person faithfully going to church does (Hebrews 10:25; John 4:23-24; Acts 20:7; 1 Cor. 16:1-4). And finally, people said that the dead man was looking down and smiling at everyone. The word of God teaches that dead people don’t know what the living are doing (Ecclesiastes 9:4-6) (Funerals included).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services
