Sabbath part 2

ok i asked about Sabbath a few days ago and have been told by a Seventh Day Adventist and another lady that yes Sabbath is necessary and according to them and the sites they sent me to say that it's a commandment of God still. So if this is true then billions of people are going to burn in hell for simply having gone to church on the wrong day. Am I getting this right? God is such a jerk that he would damn people for simply going to church on a day other then Saturday? Also read some interesting thing about the Seventh Day Adventists. It's their belief that going to church on Sunday is giving the devil power.

I'm getting upset because im being told and shown its still a commandment and that means that those who dont follow it are going to hell. and this isnt jews this is CHRISTIANS!


wait so it's only a sin if you know to go to church on saturday, then how is it a commandment those are binding wether or not you know it.. please explain yourself.

  • Just because you don't go to church on Sunday you aren't going to burn in hell. BUT, once you know you should, you should start because that's what God has asked of us. You should make your best effort to be there. God understands each of us as individuals, he knows our challenges, what we know and what we don't know. It's our job to learn what He would have us do.

  • ok anonl I think you are getting upset over nothing. Going to church on the sabbath is going by the Jewish calender. Since the fall of Jerusalem and the Roman Empire took over Christian Gentiles adopted Sunday as their day to worship Christ. In Acts chapter 20 Paul had church with his Jewish brothers on Saturday and on Sunday with his Gentile brothers. Acts 20:7 It does not mattter what day of the week you worship God, just make sure you have a day to worship him. I hope this helps.

  • Wow. I've never heard that one before. I didn't know there was such a thing as going to church on the wrong day. lol. How crazy is that?? God doesn't care what day you go to church just as long as you show up! In these days and times alot of ppl can't go to church on the week-end because of thier job. Not everybody can pick and choose their days off. God sending ppl to hell for worshipping Him on the "wrong" day?? Puhleeze!

    I'm an ex-Christian. Consider the Noahide laws, they apply to everyone from the Jewish perspective. This belief and acceptance of it requires one to agree that their view of God is correct. Without that belief of correctness, there is no need to follow the Noahide laws. This is the same case with Saturday as Sabbath as practiced by SDA. The problem in their doctrine lies in whither one is a Jew or Gentile. For gentiles are only required to follow Noahide laws according to the OT and rabbinical interpretation. But from the doctrine of grace, Christians are exempt from the bonds of Jewish law. They are not required to become Jews at all or follow Jewish law.

  • In a lot of churches there are services available every day, and the weekly service is offered on both Saturday and Sunday. In Genesis, it never says what day was the seventh, just that the seventh (shabbat/sabbath) is the 7th day. Interestingly, Saturday, while it sounds similar to word shabbat, is actually named after Saturn.

  • Because of the doctrine of Grace, Romans 6:14, Sabbath keeping is not required. The bottom line to this whole doctrinal quagmire is cherry picking. Just what do you keep and follow and what do you ignore and how do you determine which is which?

    One of my bigger problems is this: if you only follow one of the Covent commandments given to the Children of Israel, then you are required to follow all of the Covent commandments because the commandments are inseparable. So why is there resistant to converting to Judaism? Then add in the fact of unknown Jewish ancestry, why risk it? Follow the Noahide laws and you're fine. That God did not require everyone to become Jewish. Jesus is a much newer development but not incompatible with the Noahide laws.
