Is it true that when we be buried our head must point to the east?

Jesus is coming back from the east. Is it true that everybody buries people with their heads pointing to the east? I have heard this.

  • I have never heard of this. It has made me wonder about someone who has been cremated.

  • Our spirit body is already home in heaven......... the only thing left in the grave is decomposing flesh. Huge misunderstanding of scripture.
