Every culture has various rituals followed when a funeral is performed; however what I’m finding hard to understand is why people believe in the final goodbye.In my Understanding when a person is dead they are dead. They no longer exist and they no longer know what is going on. So when it comes to Open-casket funerals, some people say that they find closure when they see the dead person for the last time. But would that not be a lack of acceptance of the death and allowing grieving process?
Life continues after death and to dwell on finding closure could take a lifetime because there are so many levels of closure that sometimes the process for one funeral could go from months to a year in order to find closure. Closure can be a draining process and can put a person’s life on hold even though they themselves are not dead.
The bible says let the dead bury themselves and those that are living continue on in worship.
Can’t agree more.
