What Happens to a Body During Cremation?

Life after death: Americans are embracing new ways to leave their remains October 27, 2017 6.21am EDT theconversation.com
“..Going home
A rising number of families are also interested in so-called “home funerals,” in which the remains are cleaned and prepared for disposition at home by the family, religious community or friends. Home funerals are followed by cremation, or burial in a family cemetery, a traditional cemetery or a green cemetery…

What Does The Bible Say About Cremation? Date: September 11, 2018 By: Cremation Staff memorialcremations.com
The Bible does not specifically say whether cremation is approved or not. But it does give instances where the prophets in the Old Testament where buried versus burning their bodies after death (see Genesis 23:9, Deuteronomy 34:5-6, and Mark 6:29). As cremation or burial by fire was not called out in the Bible, each individual will need to make the decision for themselves based on their own faith, traditions, needs, and wishes.

Burial Benefits – Compensation – Veterans Benefits … benefits.va.gov

‘..Burial Benefits
Effective July 7, 2014: VA is changing its monetary burial benefits regulations to simplify the program and pay eligible survivors more quickly and efficiently. These regulations will authorize VA to pay, without a written application, most eligible surviving spouses basic monetary burial benefits at the maximum amount authorized in law through automated systems rather than reimbursing them for actual costs incurred.

Under the current regulations, VA pays for burial and funeral expenses on a reimbursement basis, which requires survivors to submit receipts for relatively small one-time payments that VA generally pays at the maximum amount permitted by law.
The new burial regulations will permit VA to pay, at a flat rate, burial and plot or interment allowances thereby enabling VA to automate payment of burial benefits to most eligible surviving spouses and more efficiently process other burial benefit claims.
The burial allowance for a non-service-connected death is $300, and $2,000 for a death connected to military service.
Benefit
Service-related Death
VA will pay up to $2,000 toward burial expenses for deaths on or after September 11, 2001, or up to $1,500 for deaths prior to September 11, 2001. If the Veteran is buried in a VA national cemetery, some or all of the cost of transporting the deceased may be reimbursed…”

The former refugee gained traction two years ago, when she became the first Somali-American elected to a state legislature in Minnesota by defeating a 22-term Democratic incumbent. Because her district, which encompasses Minneapolis and its surrounding suburbs, is reliably liberal, she is widely expected to take the House seat.

    About The Ingalls Family by Sarah S. Uthoff 111 Comments littlehouseontheprairie.com
    “..Charles Phillip Ingalls or “Pa” (1836-1902)

    Charles had a wandering foot in all his various incarnations. In real life his family had long been farmers, moving several times while he was growing up in search of a better chance. Charles followed this same pattern with his own family after marrying Caroline Quiner, always in search of better financial opportunities, specifically a successful wheat farm. After many moves and attempts, with his family’s help Charles proved up his homestead, but due to health issues he retired from farming almost immediately afterward. Together Charles and Caroline built up one final home in De Smet, South Dakota. It’s known in Laura circles as the Third Street House and is where Charles and Caroline spent the rest of their respective lives…”

    “..Laura was both a pioneer and an author. She helped her family create a homestead, worked as a seamstress and taught school before marrying Almanzo James Wilder. They set out to build their own farm. They had several failed attempts before finally making a last fresh start in Mansfield, Missouri. They were able to improve their farm slowly until they had a modestly successful farm of over 200 acres. Laura’s work sharing information to improve farm life led to a semi-regular career writing mostly magazine articles for the Missouri Ruralist. Her own ambitions and her daughter Rose’s prodding led her to write and publish a fictionalized account of her childhood in the Little House books. The process of creating the series and later answering her fan mail would be her big project for the rest of her life…”

    THE GREATEST SHOWMAN “P.T. Barnum” Behind The Scenes Interview – Hugh Jackman

    The Greatest Showman (2017) historyvshollywood.com
    Starring Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams
    …Was P.T. Barnum nearly broke before he opened his museum?

    This is somewhat true. However, he hadn’t been laid off from a desk job. After lotteries were banned in Connecticut, P.T. Barnum sold his general store since the statewide lottery network had been his main source of income. He moved to New York City and began working as a showman, starting a variety troupe. In 1836, his variety troupe, Barnum’s Grand Scientific and Musical Theater, had a year of mixed success. Then came the U.S. financial crisis known as the Panic of 1837, which led to three years of hard times for Barnum. He found success again after purchasing and reinventing Scudder’s American Museum, which he renamed Barnum’s American Museum…

    Was P.T. Barnum really a champion of acceptance and tolerance?

    Many would argue against this. The Greatest Showman would have you believe that P.T. Barnum was a champion of acceptance and tolerance, celebrating those who 1800s society considered outcasts and “freaks”. Things aren’t nearly as black and white when it comes to the real P.T. Barnum. Many see his profiting from putting people with abnormalities and disabilities on public display as being exploitation. And even though Barnum possessed anti-slavery convictions, both his actions as a showman and his “freak shows” themselves could at times certainly be considered racist.

    For example, Barnum is believed to have gotten his start as a showman in 1835 when he purchased and exhibited an elderly African American slave woman named Joice Heth, who was blind and almost entirely paralyzed. He claimed that Heth was 161 years old and had been George Washington’s nurse. Heth died the following year. Her true age was approximately 80 years old, roughly half the age Barnum advertised her to be….

    Is the Barnum & Bailey Circus still in business?

    No. Dwindling attendance and high operating costs forced the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus to close on May 21, 2017 after 146 years of uninterrupted operation. The circus shut down just seven months prior to the movie’s release. It had been plagued with controversy in the years prior due to criticisms of animal abuse and exploitation, which had forced the circus to retire its elephant acts in 2016…”

    Kanye West Sunday Service?!?! Is He Converting to Christianity?

    Kanye West’s Sunday Service had ‘over 1,000’ commit their lives to Christ: ‘New wave of revival’ By Caleb Parke | Fox News foxnews.com
    “..A Louisiana pastor praised Kanye West’s last-minute “Sunday Service,” where “over 1,000” people raised their hands to commit their lives to Christ on Friday, calling it a “new wave of revival.”

    West opened up his “Sunday Service,” which is not always held on Sunday, to the public a few months ago, traveling across the country to hold gospel services and perform songs from his new album, “Jesus is King.”

    Curvine Brewington, a pastor at Crossroads Church in Lafayette, attended Friday’s service with his wife. The outdoor service was held at a field provided by Bethany Church in Baton Rouge, La but was not affiliated with the church.

    WHO IS KANYE WEST’S CALIFORNIA PASTOR PREACHING AT SUNDAY SERVICE?

    “Tonight, worship was lifted, the name of Christ was exalted, the Word of God was preached, a multitude prayed together, the Gospel was clearly proclaimed, and an opportunity to respond was given,” Brewington wrote on Friday. “In a crowd of 6,000, people from all walks of life, all ages, and all races, I witnessed over 1,000 people respond to The Gospel by raising their hands to accept Jesus as their Lord & Savior!”..”

    What is Happening to Katy Perry… (2017-2018)

    The ‘Glee’ Cast’s Tragic History: From Cory Monteith to Mark Salling By Anna Menta On 1/30/18 at 4:37 PM newsweek.com
    “…In 2013, actor Cory Monteith’s sudden death of a drug overdose shocked Glee fans, who knew him as his popular jock character Finn Hudson. Now, nearly three years after creator Ryan Murphy’s musical dramedy about a high school glee club ended, the show’s fans are learning of the death of another of the its stars, Mark Salling, who played reformed bad boy Puck.

    Salling died on Tuesday, at the age of 35. Authorities have ruled the death a suicide after finding his body hanging from a tree in a riverbed near his home in Sunland, California, according to a report from TMZ.

    Montieth was 31 when he was found in a Vancouver hotel room. The actor had a history of drug abuse, and the coroner determined that his death was caused by lowered tolerance to drugs after a stint in a treatment facility for substance abuse. (Murphy had urged him to get help, temporarily writing him out of the series’ fourth season. He was promised a job when he recovered.) In a 2011 interview with Parade, Monteith discussed his teenage drug use: “Anything and everything, as much as possible. I had a serious problem.”

    ..On September 30, 2017, the actor pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography. He had been scheduled to be sentenced on March 7 and was facing four to seven years behind bars. The California prison system has come under fire recently for a shockingly high rate of deaths for child molesters (at the hands of other prisoners), and it’s possible that Salling was fearful of doing time.

    But there’s more bad news for former Glee stars. Naya Rivera—who played cheerleader Santana Lopez—had a recent brush with the law. The 31-year-old was arrested and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery after an alleged physical altercation with her husband, Ryan Dorsey. According to a 911 call placed by Dorsey, Rivera was reportedly “drinking” and “out of control.” The couple filed for divorce in December, and this month the battery charge was dismissed at Dorsey’s request…”

    “…Do not wear yourself out to get rich;
    do not trust your own cleverness.
    5
    Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone,
    for they will surely sprout wings
    and fly off to the sky like an eagle….

    Do not let your heart envy sinners,
    but always be zealous for the fear of the Lord.
    18
    There is surely a future hope for you,
    and your hope will not be cut off.,…

    Listen, my son, and be wise,
    and set your heart on the right path:
    20
    Do not join those who drink too much wine
    or gorge themselves on meat,
    21
    for drunkards and gluttons become poor,
    and drowsiness clothes them in rags…”

    Deep Thought: Prayers for Parkland Shooting?

    Parkland School Shooting: Here Are the Victims Who Lost Their Lives Inside Edition Inside Edition Staff,Inside Edition Thu, Feb 15 9:59 AM CST yahoo.com

    What you need to know about the FBI tip-line that failed in the Florida shooting Author: Kevin Johnson, USA TODAY Published: 6:11 PM EST February 19, 2018 kare11.com
    Until last week, the FBI’s tip-line call center had been operating in near-anonymity from its hub in rural West Virginia.
    “..Nearly 4 million telephone calls and emails have poured into the so-called Public Access Line since the operations were consolidated six years ago.

    The program, which grew out of the FBI’s effort to combat massive fraud spawned by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, was aimed at centralizing separate call centers that had been functioning at all 56 field offices across the country – freeing up more agents to work the streets in divisions across the country.

    In wake of the tip-line’s breakdown in the Cruz case, it is now the focus of an internal FBI review. Lawmakers, meanwhile, have called for congressional inquiries and President Trump offered his own rebuke in a weekend tweet, saying that the FBI was “spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion.”

    Here, we break down everything you need to know about the tip-line.

    How are tips routed to the FBI public access line?

    Typically, calls of all kinds are received at local FBI field offices across the country where they are sorted by topic.

    Those with leads on potential crimes or threats to public safety are transferred to the call center located at the FBI’s offices in Clarksburg, W.Va., the same location that houses the National Instant Criminal Background Check System that reviews the backgrounds of gun purchasers…”

    On Wednesday February 14th, 2018 at approximately 2:30pm, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, killing 17 people and wounding thirteen survivors – including two people who remain in critical condition.

    The suspect was reportedly armed with an AR-15 style rifle, “countless magazines” of ammunition, a gas mask and even smoke grenades – as he set off a fire alarm and brought students out from their classrooms and into the school hallways prior to the shooting.

    Cruz was apprehended on Wednesday and charged on Thursday with 17 counts of premeditated murder in the third-deadliest school shooting in American history.

    Florida lawmaker fires aide who allegedly called mass shooting survivors ‘actors’ KARMA ALLEN,Good Morning America 6 hours ago .yahoo.com
    “..An aide to a Florida state lawmaker was fired on Tuesday after he allegedly referred to some survivors of last week’s mass shooting as “actors that travel to various crisis when they happen,” officials said.

    Florida state Rep. Shawn Harrison said he was “appalled” by the comments made by his district secretary, Benjamin Kelly, earlier in the day and supported a decision to have him terminated.

    Harrison also apologized for “any pain this has caused” to families of the victims in last week’s mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where a former student allegedly shot and killed 17 students and teachers…”

    CRISIS ACTORS

    It’s all THEATER: Florida high school shooting survivor caught on video rehearsing scripted lines, coached by camera man Monday, February 19, 2018 by: Mike Adams naturalnews.com
    “(Natural News) Is anyone surprised anymore at the depths of deception invoked by the fake news media? All weekend long, the media paraded high school kids in front of news cameras, exploiting them as props for the emotional exploitation of the public. Now it turns out these kids were coached to repeat scripted lines, just like actors reading lines for a movie production. It’s all scripted, in other words, to push a gun control narrative rooted in emotional reaction rather than constructive solutions…

    It also turns out that one of these kids — David Hogg — is the son of an FBI agent. In other words, his father was part of the same deep state swamp that has been committing treason to try to destroy Trump. This was almost never mentioned in any of the TV news interviews where he was vehemently defending the FBI and blaming President Trump for the shooting…

    Why would the child of an FBI agent be used as a pawn for anti-Trump rhetoric and anti-gun legislation? Because the FBI is only looking to curb OUR Constitutional rights and INCREASE their power. We’ve seen their propaganda many times. Don’t let them win.

    “..That was the case again on Saturday, when Schilling angered the masses by retweeting a conspiracy theory that alleges one of the survivors from the mass shooting at Majory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. was actually a paid crisis actor.

    The student, 17-year-old David Hogg, has been one of the strongest voices in the aftermath of the shooting that claimed 17 lives and left several others wounded. Those attempting to discredit his story claim Hogg has been coached by his father, a former FBI agent, or that he’s been paid to travel to different shooting sites to support stricter gun laws…”

    False Flag

    Here’s why the Florida high school mass shooting was a false flag black operation By Editor — February 15, 2018 8 Comments theeventchronicle.com
    “KEY POINT: That a high school was selected in President Trump’s own back yard in South Florida makes it very difficult for him to avoid the highly politicized parental backlash that is sure to manifest. The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida is less than 40 miles south of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago luxury resort that functions as Trump’s Camp David. How convenient for the perps to have shot up a school located in Broward County, perhaps the most ultra-liberal county south of the border. Clearly, every single detail of this [SHOCKING] mass shooting was well thought out in advance in order to have maximum impact. And so it has! But not without serious blowback on the Deep State decision-makers.”
