    Philippians 3:6 Concerning zeal, persecuting the church touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless. Romans 10:4 View whole chapter See verse in context For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth
  • Sally
    concision meaning they were Believers but were cut off?
  • Dean
    These bodies are not eternal and are in a fallen state. For we exist in a fallen World with a fallen nature. Praise God once born again we are free from all of it. Soon to receive a new eternal body and purified nature. In a new World and new Heaven. This is the reward and higher calling we press on towards. The Crown of glory and eternal life in Christ Jesus. Run the good race. Shalom

    do you honestly think that someone that was cremated and served the Lord will not enter the kingdom? it's the soul that rises up
  • Vanessa
    1 Corinthians 15:35:50 we will be given heavenly bodies , to fit our heavenly spirit
  • JP
    Cremation is not in the Word of God. You are adding to the Word of God. Where is the Christian testimony? When are we going to draw the line? What's next?
  • James Stone
    What about Christians who were burned at the stake, Christians who drowned at sea, eaten by sharks, lions, burned in a house fire, and a multitude of other ways a person can die and not have a body left behind.
  • Vanessa
    when we die in Christ we receive new bodies, cremation is alright, this body we live in now will turn to dust ashes to ashes
  • Paul Morton
    pray our FATHER will provide a venue to proclaim our risen LORD CHRIST JESUS
    HI,PAUL ,letting us know we got to let go of the past and move on,let go of stuff and everything that easily beset us ,look toward the higher calling and that.s JESUS CHRIST ,our LORD AND SAVIOR,nothing we have is of any value,if it's not JESUS,keep our eyes on the prize(CHRIST JESUS)everything is loss ,except when we come into the knowledge of CHRIST JESUS,when we have him it is for us GAIN''.

    cremation is not christian, joseph was embalmed and buried
    moses was buried, saul was burned unsaved, moloch
    sacrificed babies by burning not one saint in the bible
    was burned all died natural and buried the christian
    way not the heathen. cremation is ashes, natural
    body decay is dust genesis 2-7. cremation is not christian
  • Dean
    Charley, while I agree that many times in the bible we see people being buried and sacrifices are being burned in others. To make the jump to cremation being wrong or a form of committing a sacrifice is huge. The bible dose not agree with this thinking, and a deeper prayerful study on the subject may be very exciting for you to undertake. Best of wishes. Shalom

    Hello! there is to much human interpretation going on.Please Pray and seek God to give you the correct guidance and answer about cremation.The bible was not meant to be used for human interpretation.Only if the Holy Spirit come upon you.Will you have the power through Christ to interpret the Bible.Remember God is Love it is the greatest of all commandments.We should always be a reflection of that.

    Just if can forget the past that happen to us
  • Lorease
    Joyce, As you mentioned, soul of man is the most important of a human b/c that's why Christ died. The bible doesn't speak against cremation as a form of putting away our love ones. Besides, it's cheaper for many that can't afford burial. The Bible does condemn human sacrifice/burning - this act involves offerings humans to gods. At any rate, we'll receive glorified bodies Phil 3:21. Be Blessed
  • BSP
    Verse 7~Paul considered the former material things he had as a loss or as rubbish when compared to the privilege of having a relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • Joyce
    If we be in Christ then who can deny us but Christ the kingdom of Heaven. Once we have died, our bodies are only a shell left after our spirit has left either in rest or in Hades. It is not for us to say. The bible does not speak against cremation. Are we to be rotted flesh or ashes to be brought back together for judgement day? Does the body really mater or is it our souls that he wants?
  • Holly
    This speaks oodles of joy to my heart. Paul speaks of counting it all loss for Christ. For me that includes the idea of a perfect doctrinally correct church. Praising the Lord for the past indoctrinationally incorrect churches so I can look forward to Christ alone. You have got to come to a point in your life were it's you and Christ alone. When you truly live this you are whole.
  • BSP
    Verse 13: Paul knew he had to forget the things from the past and look ahead to the future prize in order to stay on the right track. We want to imitate him.
  • A disciple
    Eutychus; So when Jesus said that He "came not to abolish the Law or the Prophets, but to fulfill;" does that mean that Paul contradicted or is there something deeper? God hasn't changed His Nature or His Spirit! But the change has to be in us that we henceforth show the workings of the Law and the Prophets through the same Spirit which moved them to write. They're perfected by our walk in truth.
  • Eutychus
    "But this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind". Unless you were raised in a bible perfect, doctrinally sound church, you believe things that aren't bible truth. If so, disregard the rest of this. If not, then you may spend years, many years, putting behind you the errors of your religious past, just as Paul did. That can be done, only by immersing yourself, in the Word of God
  • Eutychus
    "...touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless." vs 6. Paul here, and only 3 others throughout the N.T. are said to be blameless before the law. Jesus (Hebrews 4:15), and Zacharias and Elizabeth, parents of John the Baptist (Luke 1:6). But then, we live under a different law, faith and grace, for "Christ is the end of the law for righteous to everyone that believeth" Romans 10:4.
  • BSP
    Verse 14: Paul was putting forth earnest effort to attain the prize of the heavenly reward.
  • A disciple
    Lilian; The LORD sees your love and longing for Him! Grace and Peace to you, Sister! "In quietness and in confidence I will reveal Myself... Ask and you SHALL receive: I give understanding to the simple, and am closer than your hands and feet!" The blood of Christ has been once and for all shed for our reconciliation and we are clean and accepted in Him. Fear not, Beloved; Be still before Him!
  • Lilian
    Jesus is the only way to heaven I thank you Jesus for the blood you shed for us renew my spirit my heart and my soul Jehova Rapha Jehova Jireh the Lord my provider Shalom
  • Dossie Dednam
    Forgetting, is as in the basic English version loosening from the past, is a process. You have to give your Past actively to Father God that the Holy Spirit can heal, teach and comfort you. Sometimes a counselor is needed to face, handle the past.
  • Mark Rasbury
    As we live our lives in this foreign world, the Apostle Paul guides us thru the challenges we face on daily basis. We face hatred, our fallen past, the temptation of compromise, and other obstacles that may hender us to pursue perfection in Christ Jesus. This chapter is very valuable for the true Christian believer. I could write alot more, but this is just the beginning of real life.
  • William Wynn
    If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

    Paul knew that his temporal life in Adam was to be dealt with through the Holy Spirit and that he would all of his earthlyAdamic life be subject to the weakness of the mind and the flesh. In this, he pressed toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.That I may know him, and the power of His return
  • Ray321
    Philippians 3:10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death Who taught Paul all these Words, Jesus. 1 Corinthians 11:1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. I follow Paul, because he follow Jesus. LEARN
