I myself doubt God cares if one is cremated. What about the eulogy "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust" that is spoken at many funerals?
If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.
The preferred method of dealing with a dead body in ancient Israel was to bury it, but that was a custom, not a commandment.
In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread till thou return to the earth, out of which thou wast taken: for dust thou art, and into dust thou shalt return.
