Seventh-day Adventists base all their activities on The Bible. The Bible does not state a Christian way to dispose of the dead. Many Seventh-day Adventists have opted for cremation with no problems at all with the church. Many Adventists believe that at the resurrection, Jesus will revive all saved people who have died, regardless of how they died or what state their bodies are in. They believe that if God was able to create Adam from the dust of the ground, He is also able to re-create the saved. After all, Adam's body has long since returned to dust, but most Christians believe that he will be in heaven. Based on these thoughts, some Adventists choose cremation as a cost-saving measure.
