Of his online critics that claim their primary loyalty is to the universal church rather than a particular church or congregation, Pastor Jason Cooley snapped in a sermon titled “Grumbling Against God = Death” have the universal church rather than a pastor preach your funeral. Fine with me. It’s not like the departed probably even know about what goes on at their respective funerals anyway. Furthermore, a “proper” funeral is not required to get into Heaven. If you are relying on one for such, you are already on your way to Hell. The funeral is for those that most likely didn’t give a damn about you while you were alive anyway but who are eager to gawk at your lifeless corpse.
