When the rapture happens the dead bodies of Christians will rise first to meet their souls, and then those which remain will meet Christ in the air. That is what I think is going on.

Another thing to consider is the transfiguration of Christ when Moses and Elijah appeared with Jesus.

To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

No I do not believe that Josh was trying to say that we need a physical body to enter heaven. Because no corruptible thing can enter heaven. Everyone who has died and gone to heaven does not have their physical body with them, but during the rapture our bodies will be changed from corruptable to incorruptable.

Is being martyred on a burning stake a bad thing then? I jest but only to make a point. Being cremated is not bad in the least. Unfortunately I have heard the argument against cremation before. Which hits a little close to home since my mom was just cremated a few months ago.
If God can reassemble the bodies of 2000 year old saints, a soldier blown to bits on the battle field, or a martyrdom on a burning stake. (Which BTW, never come into question with regard to the resurrection.) I see no reason to believe that He can not reassemble someone that is cremated. Besides God built this Universe from nothing.
The Bible definately does not say that it is forbid.

Moondog, I concur.
