Dear Editor,
Personally, I have often wondered why people who refused to step into Church when they are alive and well (no problems with transport etc) are so dead-set on having a funeral Mass and a grand send-off when they die.

From experience, I found that many of them are completely against the Church and Mass. They will even try to justify that attending Mass is NOT necessary since the Bible does not state it. They will fight tooth and nail NOT to attend Mass.

Do they think “I don’t ever want to step into Church when I’m alive but it’s fine when I’m a corpse in my coffin and the pall-bearers carry me in. I can get my instant passport to heaven?”

Again, unlike the Christians of other denominations, our daily lives have to reflect our faith. It is not a simple “say Jesus Christ is Lord!” or “he/she accepted Jesus” that will guarantee eternal life.

Jesus did say in the Gospels that not everyone who calls Me “Lord, Lord will enter into Heaven; only those who do the will of My Father.”
