Lee,you need to take away your preconceived notions that that the Sabbath is Jewish,& that it was only a sign between the Jews & God. Once you have removed these incorrect ideas, you will see,that Sabbath WAS instituted in Eden,before sin, that it could not be a foreshadow of Christ as it was before sin, that God wrote all 10CC with his own finger & He does not make a mistake and later remove one of them. Jesus is the same, yesterday, today,& forever. He said remember, and he does not later say forget.
---Gina on 12/31/06


Gins- You claim that nothing before sin entered the world could be a foreshadowing of Christ"s minnistry, yet scripture says the the lamb was slain from BEFORE the foundation of the world. God was indeed showing us the ministry of Christ in the sabbath rest.
---craige on 12/31/06


Gina - *Absolutely incorrect Lee.* You know not the Scripture!

Hebrews 10:1 For since the law has but a shadow of the good things to come instead of the true form of these realities, it can never, by the same sacrifices that are continually offered every year, make perfect those who draw near.
---lee on 12/31/06


Gina - *Marriage and the Sabbath were both institued in Eden, as great blessings for mankind before the fall.*

There was no command for everyone to marry nor is there any evidence whatsover that the Sabbath was observed prior to the time of Moses.

How could the sign of the covenant between God & Israel be made in Eden prior to the time of Moses?
---lee on 12/30/06


Gina - *God wrote ALL 10 commandments w/His own finger.*

So He wrote them with His finger but does not mean they are more important than the Word of God found elsewhere?

*He did not scribble the Sabbath commandment in in pencil, so it could be erased later*

It was never 'erased' but simply fulfilled in Christ as He became the 7th day rest for all who believe the same as circumcision became a thing of the heart. Hebr 4:2.
---lee on 12/30/06




Gina - *Sorry, I know you would like to believe the Sabbath is no longer binding so that you do not have to obey, but this is not the case.*

The sabbath along with the other commandments is referred to as 'that ministry of death written on stone' (2 Cor. 3:7). How then could such a thing be something we must obey?

Yes, I know 'deca' means 10 as I have taken courses in several different languages - French, German & Greek.
---lee on 12/30/06


Lee1538 "The Sabbath commandment - the sign of the Covenant between God & Israel like many of the other Mosaic law merely foreshadowed Christ & His ministry." Absolutely incorrect Lee. The Sabbath Day was institued in the Garden of Eden, before sin,& was for mankind forever. (Only things instituted after sin could be a foreshadow of Christ) Marriage and the Sabbath were both institued in Eden, as great blessings for mankind before the fall.
---Gina on 12/30/06


Lee1538 "An extremely poor argument as there is nothing that would limit God from inserting a ceremonial commandment within the Decalogue."//God wrote ALL 10 commandments w/His own finger. He did not scribble the Sabbath commandment in in pencil, so it could be erased later. Sorry, I know you would like to believe the Sabbath is no longer binding so that you do not have to obey, but this is not the case. ALL 10 C stand together as the decalogue (deca the prefix means 10, did you know that?)
---Gina on 12/30/06


Gina - *God, by placing the Sabbath in the heart of the 10 commandments, has made it a moral law.*

An extremely poor argument as there is nothing that would limit God from inserting a ceremonial commandment within the Decalogue.

The Sabbath commandment - the sign of the Covenant between God & Israel like many of the other Mosaic law merely foreshadowed Christ & His ministry.

Both Old & New Covenants are all about Jesus and the salvation gift to those that truly believe in Him.
---lee on 12/30/06


Gina - *Since if you break 1,you have broken them all(James 2:10-12)*

Very true for those under the law.

Notice please that James 2:10 speaks of "the whole law" and certainly that include every ceremonial law from God.

Now you know why the Christian lives by the Spirit and not by the law.

Rom 7:6 But now we are released from the law, having died to that which held us captive, so that we serve not under the old written code but in the new life of the Spirit.
---lee on 12/30/06




For the Christian concerned about fulfilling the law -

Romans 13:8-9 Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. The commandments, 'You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,' and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself'

And what does love of neighbor have to do with Sabbath observance?
---lee on 12/30/06


What Lee1538 refuses to accept, is that it is God's "10 commandments",not the 9 commandments, that fall or stand together. God, by placing the Sabbath in the heart of the 10 commandments, has made it a moral law. Use the Bible's definition of sin, (not a dictionary). 1John3:4 "Whosover committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law" We know that if you break one, you have broken them all (James 2:10-12) This includes the Sabbath commandment.
---Gina on 12/29/06


Lee,even if you refuse to accept that all 10 (not 9)CC fall or stand together,I assure you the devil has not forgotten,&that is why the push is so strong for people to forget the Sabbath,w/the lie that it is just a ceremonial law& not important.Since if you break 1,you have broken them all(James 2:10-12)if the devil can deceive people into ignoring the 4th,then he has people right where he wants them,as sinners,&laughing at them.The 4 C says "remember" and he has them "forgetting"!
---Gina on 12/29/06


"But what Gina does not realize is that though sin is a transgression of the law,there is no sin involved in not obeying a law that has been declared to be obsolete."

Apparently Gina cannot come up with a good argument that Christians need to be obedient to OT laws not found within the New Testament.

If I fail to show love toward my neighbor or refuse to obey His Spirit, then I am not in favor with the Lord, but He will be convicting me what I am doing wrong.
---lee1538 on 12/28/06


Gina - *What Lee does not want to accept is that the Sabbath is the very heart of the moral law,&defines which God we serve & love.*

The main reason I reject that is that it is not supported by the Bible but rather by your prophetess Ellen White.

Adventists have to deny dictionary definitions in order to support their doctrinal stands.
---lee1538 on 12/26/06


Gina - *... the Sabbath is the very heart of the moral law,..*

The Sabbath is a holy convocation (Lev. 23:3) which by definition has to be a ceremonial law not a moral law.

Those that believe the Sabbath is a moral law simply ignore the dictionary definition and refuse to acknowledge what characterizes moral or ceremonial laws.

Adventists have to believe the Sabbath is a moral law bec they believe that ceremonial laws were nailed to the Cross - Col. 2;14.

Lee1538 "But what Gina does not realize is that though sin is a transgression of the law,there is no sin involved in not obeying a law that has been declared to be obsolete." What Lee does not want to accept is that the Sabbath is the very heart of the moral law,&defines which God we serve & love. Which God do we not make an idol of? The creator of heaven & earth(words in the 4th C).Which God do we serve above all others?(Creator).The Sabbath is the most important C & has NOT been made obsolete!

But what Gina does not realize is that though sin is a transgression of the law, there is no sin involved in not obeying a law that has been declared to be obsolete. And such is the case with circumcision, and the Jewish Sabbath.

The Christian is under the Law of Christ of the New Covenant; not of the old Mosaic law given only to the nation of Israel.
---lee1538 on 12/23/06


What is sin by the definition of the Bible: 1John3:4 "Whoseover commetteth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law" SIN = BREAKING THE 10 CC. If you have broken one you have broken them all James 2:10-12

Geoff- If you think that by keeping a set of rules or regulations is what makes you or keeps you right with God you are mistaken. Keeping laws cannot change the heart of man-only the Holy Spirit can do that.And He is only allowed to work in you (writting the laws on your heart) by faith. Faith in what? Your faith in what Christ has done for you. It's your faith in His atoning work that paid the price for him to legally help you.
---craige on 12/22/06


Geoff- You are right in that we are not to excuse sin. But I dont sin by breaking a list of rules and regulations written down on paper or stone. We sin when we break the laws written on our hearts. Theres no commandment that says dont yell at your wife. But if I do yell at her the Spirit of God takes me to the Holy Ghost woodshed. Conviction comes by the spirit and says "Youre a child of God now and what you did was wrong. Now I want you to repent, and not do that again. cont...

Romans 7:6 But now we are released from the law, having died to that which held us captive, so that we serve not under the old written code but in the new life of the Spirit.

The 'old written code' here refers to the Old Covenant or Mosaic law given at Mt. Sinai.

Those that depend upon obedience to such law really do not have the Spirit or simply lack understanding of 'the new life of the Spirit'.

Eloy said "a person keeps a day holy, by setting the day apart in honor of God & spending the day with the Lord." Where is this in the Bible?

Craige, while "[you] depend on Christ's ability to keep the law," don't excuse sin. We depend on Christ not to murder/commit adultery, but we had better NOT murder/commit adultery. Faith doesn't cancel obedience. In fact it establishes it
Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law-Rom 3:31
---Geoff on 12/21/06


Jack, what does either question have to do with keeping the Sabbath holy? God told us how-Isa 58:13-14, Ex 20:8-10. The issue is NOT worship, but obedience-Ex 16:4-28. Don't be stubborn.

The problem is not that you don't own a buggy. The problem is that you do and you rebel, not wanting to install the reflector. God gave all of us the Sabbath-Mk 2:27, Heb 4:9 but you are saying He didn't give it to you-Heb 4:6. Are you a man?
---Geoff on 12/21/06


law - Hebr 4:3-4, 9-10 for we who have believed enter that rest,. For he has somewhere spoken of the 7th day in this way. And God rested on the 7th day from all his works.So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, for whoever has entered Gods rest has also rested from his works as God did from his. - meaning that your salvation which one receives by faith alone does not require works of the law to keep it.
---lee1538 on 12/20/06


Eloy- my point exactly. But for SDA's this is just to simple to believe. The simplicity of the gospel of Christ is foriegn to them. They have to add to what Christ said was "finished" They do not believe that what Christ did was enough to make them right with God. They must complete what he could not.They dont understand that this is spiritual adultery in the eyes of God.

Geoff, I don't accept your suggestions. A person keeps a day holy, by setting the day apart in honor of God and spending the day with the Lord, and Christians should already be doing this 7 days a week and 24 hours a day.

Geoff- I do it by not relying on my ability to keep the law.Instead I depend on Christ's ability to keep the law. I'm dependant on Christ perfection to be my perfection. God sees me as having perfectly kept the law-not because I actually have, but Christ has, and when I got saved I was placed in Christ. Therefore he took my imperfection, and I took his perfection.
---craige on 12/18/06


Two questions:

1. In the context in which the commandment was given, what did it mean to "keep holy", especially since there were TWICE DAILY services?

2. Since the coming of Christ, on which day do we get to be UNholy?
---Jack on 12/18/06


I do keep the sabbath holy. You just fail to believe that Christ is the sabbath rest.The only way to keep the sabbath is by faith in his finished work. Anything else is unbelief and is a sin in the eyes of God. I offer up the sacrifice God demands- the slain lamb,(Abel's sacrifice). You ofer up friuts and vegetables (the work of your own hands. i.e. Cain's sacrifice. God cannot and will not honor your sacrifice because its not the one he's given to us by which we maintain a relationship with him.
---craige on 12/18/06


Geoff - *You can't confess what you excuse-breaking the 4th C. No wonder you consider God's Cs a burden*.

The Christian abides in Christ and He is not a burden at all but it is indeed a burden to obey laws that are no applicable to the church like the Sabbath - "These have indeed an appearance of wisdom in promoting selfmade religion and asceticism and severity to the body, but they are of no value in stopping the indulgence of the flesh." Col. 2:23

Geoff - *how can u say you keep the Law perfectly while continuing to sin, violating the 4th C?*

Well it's like this. Say that there is a law passed that mandates there be a reflector on the back of a horse buggy. Since I do not have a horse buggy, the law is not applicable to me. In the same way, since the 4th commandment is not applicable to the church, I need not obey it unless I want to.

I do not sin by disobeying a law of the Old Covenant that was decarded obsolete - Hebr. 8:13.
---lee on 12/18/06


Craige, how can you say you keep the Law perfectly while continuing to sin, violating the 4th C?

Lee & Lee1538, the just shall live by faith-Gal 3:11, but justification is NOT saying you are, but by surrender to God & confessing sins. You can't confess what you excuse-breaking the 4th C. No wonder you consider God's Cs a burden

Jeff, Paul agrees with himself & the rest of the Bible. There are good works (obedience by God's grace-Eph 2:10) & bad works (self effort to make heaven-Gal 2:16)
---Geoff on 12/18/06


Eloy, how do you keep a day holy? May I suggest that you must first be God, then you must create heaven & earth, and you must bless, sanctify & rest from creating ON that particular day

And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had made; and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it He had rested from all His work which God created and made-Gen 2:2-3
---Geoff on 12/18/06


Jeff - true that there was some disagreement as to what constituted Scripture during the 1st & 2d centuries but overall, the church recognized most of the books written by the apostles & their close associates, that we now have in the Bible.

In any case, the orthodox view - meaning the standard accepted is the 27 books that comprise the New Testament and that is what I recognize.

Lee-1."Christians believe that the entire New Testament is Scripture."
Church history would disagree with you. The earliest known usage of John is among Gnostic circles. These include the Naassene Fragment quoted by Hippolytus Ref. 5.7.2-9 (c. 120-140), the Valentinian texts cited in Clement of Alexandria's Excerpta ex Theodotou (c. 140-160), a Valentinian Exposition to the Prologue of the Gospel of John quoted in Irenaeus' Adv. Haer. 1.8.5-6 (c. 140-160), (cont'd)

Lee-2.and the commentary of Heracleon on John (c. 150-180, quoted in Origen's own commentary). If you do your research in your own christian history you will find that what you THINK is truth isn't. There's so much more available, I'm not trying to crush your belief but your own church history speaks against you. Christians don't realize it but there is a lot of error in what they believe and have been falsely taught. You can continue in error or learn truth, your choice.

Jeff - Christians believe that the entire New Testament is Scripture. While 2 Tim. 3:16 may at the time refers only to the OT Scripture, Scripture is more than just the Old Testament - at least that is what the Church has believed for the past 20 centuries.

And as the New Testament is Scripture, what Paul penned was what the Spirit of Jesus wanted written using him as an instrument.

Geoff- "Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances which was AGIANST us, which was CONTRARY to us," Yes keeping the commandments are a burden if your doing it by any other way than by faith in the finished work of Christ. To do it any other way means your doing it in your flesh, and the flesh will constantly fail to keep the law, thereby fialing God. I keep the sabbath perfectly, can you say the same? I keep it perfectly by relying on the fact that I'm perfect in Christ.
---craige on 12/14/06


Geoff-"Gal.3:11- But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith"

The problem is that Paul says in Romans 2:13 That the hearers of the Law are not justified but the DOERS of the Law will be justified. If you can't reckon Paul to even agree with himself stick with Yeshua's words and Torah.

Lee1538-"The "flesh" is human effort such as religious observances, dietary laws, etc.
And would not Sabbath keeping, dietary laws, etc. be merely human efforts?"

Only if you're a mormon and you believe G-d to be a man. All of these things you listed were recieved from G-d, thus according to Romans 7:14 they're spiritual and not of the flesh. Your scholarship gets more & more questionable Lee.

Geoff - *But nowhere does the Bible teach we should continue breaking God's law-Ro 6:1-2, 3:31*

Very true, however our area of disagreement is whether the Christian must observe those laws that God gave only to the Jewish nation and in their reality foreshadowed Christ and His ministry. And I speak of laws such as the dietary laws, circumcision, and Sabbath keeping which I understand have been declared obsolete being that they are of the OT dispensation.
---lee1538 on 12/13/06


Lee1538, yes it is "NOT that the Galatians started with the Spirit but later thought that they also needed religious observance"

Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? Gal 3:3

The answer is NO-v11

But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith

The issue is justification
---Geoff on 12/13/06


Lee1538, justification is a free gift from Jesus-Rom 5:16. I think we agree we can't earn it-Gal 5:4

How are we justified then?-Titus 3:5-8
At what point?-Rom 3:28 It's "by faith without the deeds of the law"

But nowhere does the Bible teach we should continue breaking God's law-Ro 6:1-2, 3:31 It's by God's grace we're justified, result-obedience, not law breaking. Dualism is the false doctrine that we are saved by grace & can live in disobedience at the same time

"What do you think "Sabbath" means?" The 7th day of the week & day of rest.

"How was it to be kept 'holy'?" See Isaiah 58:13-14. Are you doing that?

Craige, "no longer are under all that pressure?" Sounds like the 10 commandments are a burden to you. Read 1 Jn 5:3 & Rom 7:12.

Lee1538, where in the Bible do we find "historically the Gentile church met on the 1st day of the week for communal worship." Why is there NO mention of Sunday worship in the Bible?

max, historically the Gentile church met on the 1st day of the week for communal worship and by the beginning of the 2d century no longer observed the sabbath. We read that from scholars who have studied church history including some SDA scholars.

Yes, we benefit from time off from work as our physical bodies do need the rest from our labors but the NT does not command the keeping of a Sabbath or any particular day (Romans 14:5-6).

Hebr 4:9-10 So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God,
for whoever has entered Gods rest has also rested from his works as God did from his.

Linda - *we have no reason or right to substitute a day of our choosing over that which He has asked us to rememberand which we will continue in the new earth*

Linda, since I know of no other day which God blessed and kept holy, we have no reason or right to substitute a day of our choosing over that which He has asked us to remember and which we will continue in the new earth-Ex 20:8, Is 66:22-23. Answer: the 7th-day Sabbath

Esther - *There was no command in the NT to keep Sabbath, because that was the only day that everybody kept.*

The fact that you admitted that there is 'no command in the NT to observe the Sabbath commandment' means that you have at least taking a step toward the exit.
As to the view that 'everyone observed the Sabbath so that it was not necessary to command it' is pure unfounded speculation as we read that by the beginning of the 2d century, the church did not observe the Sabbath.
