Just finished a very frustrating inurnment service.  I had to let another Pastor speak, and as is always the problem when you let someone speak, you never know what they are going to say.  When they mess up, you can’t fix it without insulting them.  He is a humanist Pastor who wanted us to picture the deceased looking down from heaven.  He said that when we do good things we make them happy.  What a load of crap!  Talk about bringing Jesus down!  If my mom is looking down she is crying.  When you die you are looking at Jesus and your loved ones are not on your mind.  I liken it to when a famous movie star walks by or even a “Hot Babe”, people forget everything else.  Can you imagine seeing Jesus?  Your mind is fixed on Him.  That’s the comfort we have.  Your mom is not in the closet, under your bed or talking to you.   So who is talking to us when we see and hear things?  One of two people are speaking to you.  One, it is an Angel sent to comfort you, and what better way to get your attention than to manifest themselves as someone you love.  Two, it is a demon.  They will be sent to confuse you and take hope and comfort away.  I have lost most of my large family and none of them have ever “talked” to me, but Jesus has.   One more thing, can you image the guilt people (who are human) will experience when they do bad things, or a parent who can now use this as a weapon?  “Your mother is very sad right now, seeing you like this.”  We can’t pick our theology so that it makes us feel better, we must adhere to the word of God.  Jesus is my advocate.  I can’t think of a better one.  Jesus has my mom.  I find great comfort in knowing she is with Jesus and one day I will be too.  My mom lives on in me as I portray her best characteristics.   Please think before you attend a church!  EVERY church has a theology they follow!  If you need help figuring out which one your church has, just ask me.  You can email me any time!  May we all rest in peace in Christ Jesus!  No one comes to the Father except through Him!!!!!!!!!
