According to media reports, Michael Jackson is considering having his body “plastinated” by Body Worlds founder Gunther von Hagens. The controversial doctor says he could give the wacky pop star…

 “the gift of immortality.”

In the music video for his 1983 hit “Thriller,” Michael Jackson famously appears as a zombie. Now the eccentric music star could join the ranks of the undead for real: According to media reports, he is considering having his body posthumously preserved by plastination pioneer Gunther von Hagens.

The British tabloid the Daily Star reported that Michael Jackson was planning to have his body “plastinated” by von Hagens, who has himself achieved considerable fame through his successful — and highly controversial — “Body Worlds” exhibitions. The paper quoted a source close to the pop star as saying that the singer was “definitely up for undergoing the procedure when the time comes.”

In an interview published in the Wednesday edition of the mass circulation German daily Bild, von Hagens lent weight to the report. “I am not allowed to divulge the names of the people who donate their bodies to me due to patient-doctor confidentiality,” said the doctor, who shares the pop star’s fondness for black hats. “I will only say this — one of Michael’s Jackson’s employees has made contact with us.”

Von Hagens said that his patented plastination process could continue the process of reshaping Jackson’s body that the self-styled King of Pop has pursued through multiple plastic surgery operations. “I could give Michael the gift of physical immortality — he has already achieved this with his music.” Bild speculated that Jackson’s nose, which has famously received a series of surgical interventions, was already plastinated enough to not require any further work.

The Plastination inventor offered to show Jackson around his Body Worlds show which will be on at London’s O2 arena at the same time as Jackson’s recently announced comeback concert series, which begins in July. “I would happily walk Mr. Jackson through my exhibition,” von Hagens told the newspaper. “We could talk about a possible pose for him as a plastinate.”

Von Hagens’ Body Worlds exhibitions show bodies which have been given to his Institute for Plastination by donors who signed up for the process while they were alive and have been visited by more than 26 million people to date, according to the Body Worlds Web site.

Having been reared in the church as a young boy, I was always under the impression that those who trusted in Jesus Christ would live for eternity once they died. Having wholly trusted in The Christ (Yeshua ha Massiach) some twenty-eight years later I found this childhood assumption to be biblically sound.

Some years later while I was studying in the sixteenth chapter of the gospel of Luke it became quite apparent to me that everyone lives for eternity after they die. Prayerfully consider the text Luke 16:19-31

From this portion of God’s word, we find that death only affects the (physical) body but the soul of man lives on… forever….. forever!

 

Von Hagens said that his patented plastination process could continue the process of reshaping Jackson’s body that the self-styled King of Pop has pursued through multiple plastic surgery operations.

Von Hagens through his preservation process of ‘plastination’ may do a work on the body, but it is the soul that God has affixed His attention. That is the whole reason that He has sent His Son, Yeshua ha Massiach, that we might have life and that forevermore. Plastination has no power in this arena.

The Plastination inventor offered to show Jackson around his Body Worlds show which will be on at London’s O2 arena at the same time as Jackson’s recently announced comeback concert series, which begins in July. “I would happily walk Mr. Jackson through my exhibition,” von Hagens told the newspaper.  “We could talk about a possible pose for him as a plastinate.”

I would highly recommend the prostrate position; as the word of God promises that … “at the name of Jesus, every knee shall bow of things in heaven and thing in earth and things under the earth. And that every tongue should confess that Jesus is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

I would highly recommend that we assume this position while we have the opportunity to choose. One day it will happen, without choice.

  1. We can only keep that which we submit to God. It is increasingly sad to watch as the lost world struggles to hold on to their mortal bodies when the only thing that can be saved is that which does not burn up when tested by fire.! I don’t care what kind of new plastination you cover yourself with. Everything will perish!

    Who is worried about judgement? Anyone???

  2. “It is increasingly sad to watch as the lost world struggles to hold on to their mortal bodies”

    Yes Marianne, we not only see this in the unbeliever but even among the body of Christ. The fear of death. We live and serve as though we have hope of Christ in this life only.

    There seems to be many, and that sadly in the church, that do not realize that Christ took upon Him flesh and blood so that He might die for our sin. Not only have we been redemned, but he has given us power over the grave and death. Ah…. the hope of Easter.

    If the church in America would lay hold to this truth, we would be willing to not only to live for Christ but also to die for His cause. This is a hard saying, who can understand it?

    Celebrate His Life
