You:

many of the saints bodies are incorrupt, defying so-call science....just another sign of God’s power to his people
God’s people do not need signs of His power...We walk by faith, not by sight...

We have the witness of the Holy Spirit...

If you did happen to come across a preserved dead body, there’d be no way to tell if if was preserved by God, or Satan...

ME: first, if we have only the witness of the holy spirit, then there would be no need for the many signs Christ performed after his ressurection

secondly, it would make no sense for satan to be involved in incorruptible christian bodies, as these examples, DRAW PEOPLE CLOSER TO CHRIST...and i know of only one person in the last 2000 plus years that draws people to Him...

Jesus Christ was a witness to the Jews...Jesus didn't teach of the Gentile adoption into the church...

1Co 1:22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
1Co 1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

Jesus has the words of eternal life...We Christians don't need signs...

secondly, it would make no sense for satan to be involved in incorruptible christian bodies, as these examples, DRAW PEOPLE CLOSER TO CHRIST...and i know of only one person in the last 2000 plus years that draws people to Him...

Then you are a perfect candidate for deception...Satan doesn't hang around in the bars and opium dens...Satan does his business in the churches...And he can mimic any sign and wonder that Jesus can do...

2Co 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
2Co 11:15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

2Th 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

And if you are fooling with the untruth of Satan, God will help you right along...God says 'Thy word is truth'...

If you are going against the truth of God, here's how God deals with it:

2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

If it was me, I'd be searching for some real stong evidence in the Holy Scriptures to verify and justify digging up dead bodies for use as an aid to worship, or for any reason...
