So I heard about a coffin that you can buy that has a sound system built into it. It says it comes with an “upgradeable music server with 4G-connection prepared to tackle whatever afterlife throws at it.” It streams Spotify so that you can select whatever you want to play for the deceased. The casket’s price tag is a deadly $31,000.
What does the Bible say about “The CataCombo Sound System”? Well, to be honest, the CataCombo is never mentioned. Should we all go out and buy one? I mean, we like music… No, no, no. Hold your horses.
The Bible does not mention the CataCombo but that does not mean that it does not address it. Paul reminds us that we do not grieve as those without any hope (1 Thess. 4:13). Instead we can be sure that those in Christ that die will be with Christ in heaven (2 Cor. 4:14; 1 Thess. 4:14). In other words, we do not lay CataCombos in the ground where worm and rust destroy and thieves dig down and steal but we invest in treasures in heaven (Matt. 6:19-20).
Those in Christ don’t need no Spotify or CataCombo! They will enjoy “an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison” (2 Cor. 4:17). Sadly those who know not Christ, who have not confessed Him as their Lord and Savior, will hear “Hells Bells” and it won’t be AC/DC coming through their CataCombo speakers.
