Message - Re: funeral Posted By Richard Thomas on 4/1/2005 7:04:00 PM - Subscribe to this discussion here - Subscribe

That's an interesting question. I've been to a couple of funerals were the person who past was not a member of the Church, but had friends who were. The best response that I have seen was, they responded on the good things that they shared in life ( Camping, Playing checkers, Fixing on cars etc..) the member never mentioned anything about where he thinks his friend is going or where he thinks he's at. He just stated that the fun times that they had together will be missed.
That approach is truthful, not offensive. There's a time and a place to questioned somebody's faith. A funeral is not one of them. The only thing that you will accomplish is turning EVERYBODY off, and your gospel messege will never be accepted at ANY time after that.
All things are lawful, but all things are not expedient.
