John Battern on giving funerals for non-Christians:
Of course, I don't know for certain the condition of this person's soul, thus I can't say definitively what her eternal destiny is. But my theology says, Christ is the way, the truth and the life, apart from whom no one can see the Father.
So I'm left struggling what to say. I can do a nice little message that makes everyone feel good. Or I can speak the truth. That here is an individual who's destiny is uncertain. God in His mercy may intervene and deliver her, or God in His holiness may justly condemn her.
