A Christian burial is not one drenched in vanity and opulence. If we were wealthy as true Christians then we would understand that we should not let our wealth take control of us: for then we would have surrendered to Satan and we would not be anything like a Christian, but more like one condemned.
True Christians will have a modest burial in a very common coffin (ideally, six pieces of wood timbered to a strong coffin) without a display of opulent access. If during your life you have lived in vanity you were probably not a Christian anyway; but now you are dead, if you are a Christian, you will be laid to rest in modesty and not in vanity: for God warns you about vanity. Some true Christians buy their simple $200 coffin, or even build it, ready for when they die.
Christians can also be cremated, unlike what the weak in faith (the lukewarm) believe.
The dead shall arise from their grave, says Jesus. So, if their body has been burned their grave is their ashes, right? But, oh! Fools try to comprehend: and to imagine one returning from ashes is too incomprehensible for them (and Pope Benedict is one of them). For them it’s easier to believe that one can return from bare, dead bones. How stupid! So all the holy Christians who burn in fires shall not resurrect? You know that ‘s impossible with the promise of the Gospel: for then Jesus would be a lie. So any Christian who has been cremated shall also resurrect.
Note: when you truly believe, you have repented and have baptized, thus having become holy and ready to receive the Holy Ghost, you will have no desire for vanity.
