  • Sabbath is a sign of the Old Covenant (Deut 5:2-3, Exod 31:17), and the Old Covenant was given to Israel (Ex 31:17) and not anyone else (Deut 5:2-3) which is why Orthodox Jews continue to observe the Friday sunset to Saturday sunset Sabbath. If you are Jewish I can understand why you would not want to have a garage sale on Saturday and so I would not do it.

  • Actually, god doesn't SAY specifically which day is the sabbath and if he does anywhere I'd like to see the bible quote. Some say Sunday, some say Saturday, and some even go with Friday, because it is never spelled out which one it is. You're supposed to "honor it" but he never says which day it is. Which kind of makes it impossible to honor, doesn't it?
