Christians I has a question O.O

Ok I was raised that Saturday not Sunday is the sabbath day. Because the bible states the seventh day of the week is the Sabbath. You can put away the argument that we don't know what the seventh day is it got lost through time ball. We did not lose the seventh day. When we switched calenders from Hebrew to Gregorian we still have the first day as such and teh last day as such. So please find me scriptural proof that sabbath was ordained by God to Sunday. Not where it says the apostles broke bread and worshipped God, that isn't saying Sabbath. Also where it says that it doesn't matter what day you worship on cause it doesn't we can worship God ANY DAY we want. But Sabbath is a special day with God. So please find me those scriptures or even one thank you :)

  • It's funny that the only commandment disputed is the one which tells us which God,why we serve Him, and when and how to serve Him. I also find it weird that the only commandment people want to forget is the only one which begins with "REMEMBER".

  • On the 7th day,God rested from all his work and he tells us to not work on that day also,that's why we celebrate church on Sunday.Genesis Chapter2 verse2-3.In verse 3 it says; God blessed and sanctified the 7th day.

  • Ladies it will never matter what we preach if we aer from different religions, Some go to Church on Satuday and other on Sunday. What is the big deal?

  • Yes, the 7th day is the Sabbath. The law found in the OT (including the Ten Commandments) is known as the Old Law. The Old Law was revealed to the Israelites and, as given, was only ever binding only on them, However, Acts 20:7, 1 Corinthians 16:2, Colossians 2:16-17, and Revelation 1:10 and others indicate that the Sabbath is no longer binding and that Christians are to worship on the Lord’s day, Sunday, instead. So it's not changing the Sabbath day - it's acknowledging that Jesus came to fullfill the Old Law and start the New Covenant.

    Sabbath was the memorial of creation and God's rest on the seventh day; Sunday commemorates the new creation instituted by Christ's Resurrection on the first day of the week. Since many of the early Christians were Jewish they celebrated both the Sabbath and Sunday, but as predominantly Gentile, the observance of the Sabbath by Christians eventually ceased.

  • Also the early Church Fathers compared the observance of the Sabbath to the observance of the rite of circumcision, and from that they demonstrated that if the apostles abolished circumcision (Gal. 5:1-6), so also the observance of the Sabbath must have been abolished.

  • I wanted to clarify something. This doesn't mean we don't have to follow the 10 commandments. Common to both the Old Law and the New Law is natural moral law. The New Law retains all of the natural moral law contained in the Old Law while freeing us from the ritualistic aspects of it.

    The Old Law commandment to observe the Sabbath is a good example of this. It contains both natural moral law (rest and worship) and ritual observance (on Saturday). So, while we are bound to observe a day of rest and worship, we are not bound to do it on Saturday. For Christians, Sunday’s ceremonial observance replaces that of the Sabbath. It's Sunday because Jesus rose from the dead ‘on the first day of the week.’ Because it is the ‘first day,’ the day of Christ's Resurrection recalls the first creation. Because it is the ‘eighth day’ following the Sabbath, it symbolizes the new creation ushered in by Christ's Resurrection

  • There is no scripture that says the Sabbath was changed, Erin.

    Answer by Lexylex at 9:37 AM on Jun. 28, 2009

  • Sunday observance was set up by MAN, God blessed the seventh day and hallowed that day. It is at the heart of His law. It is the only commandment that points to our God as Creator, of course Satan would attack that one. The Sabbath was a sign between God and Israel (Ezekiel 20:12). WE are spritual Israel, the Sabbath is still God's sign. Nowhere in the Bible does it say we ought to regard the Sunday as sabbath. NOWHERE.
