Lee: Moral law inherent in any culture: Nonsense..these sets of ceremonial laws were given by God only to the Israelites 2 prepare them 4 the coming Christ, 2die 4our sinsMat26:28, 2replace animal sacrifices since it does not mediate 4us except Christ. M/L contained special cer/sabbaths different 2 7thday sabbath. This sabbath u often refer 2as 7th day Sab. Read Galatian 3
---jana on 5/21/07


jana - *where does it say tht the 7thdays Sab of God is a ceremonial sabbath?*

It is simply a matter of definition as the observance of a day cannot be anything less than a ceremonial law.

Moral law is something inherent in any culture; affects the conscience, and violates the principle of love of neighbor. The Sabbath commandment has NONE of these aspects to qualify it as a moral law. THINK ABOUT IT!
---lee on 5/17/07


Lee again u speak a lot of unbiblical hogwash ..where does it say tht the 7thdays Sab of God is a ceremonial sabbath? Read Luke 24:44.The LOM prescribed sacrifices, festivals, and ceremonial ordinances that were symbolic of Jesus, n ended at the cross Col 2:13,14,16,17.all cer/ordinances including special annual Sabs(not 7thday Sab)were a shadowy symbol of the ministry of Christ.John says"IF U LOVE ME, KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS" not hard to understand
---jana on 5/17/07


A violation of a moral law always affects either the violator or a victim of that violation.

But what happens if one works on the Sabbath? - virtually nothing.

Even ones conscience is not affected unless you have trained your conscience to believe it is a sin to work on the Jewish Sabbath.

That in part is why the Sabbath commandment is a ceremonial; it has little if anything to do with ones neighbor.

Geoff - You clearly have failed to make a ceremonial law into a moral law.
---lee on 5/16/07


Geoff... I feel like I have even b4 all these blogs came out...and i have said them eons ago...i dunno i just like to read these blogs...and it seems like theres mis-interpretation when i look at the verses myself, sometimes both sides...but yea i do i check it out myself...
---mark_B. on 5/16/07




And i dont agree w/ everything that Lee says...but sometimes people just say rude things...like the pork weiner comment...which i thought was quite humorous also, but it was rude...
---mark_B. on 5/16/07


Mark_B, careful! If you are going to stick up for Lee and support his error, you may have to come up with this evidence that the 7th Day Sabbath or the 4th Commandment is a ceremonial law.
---Geoff on 5/15/07


Moral law reflects that love we should have towards our neighbor.The priest&the Levite upon encountering the injured man upon the road to Jericho(Lk.10:30)were indeed good commandment keepers whereas the Good Samaritan was probably not but did the right thing in showing love towards his neighbor.lee on 5/7/07
/This is correct:The Good Sam.showed what it was like to really love ones neighbor;even in light of the fact that if roles were reversed,the hurt man would have spit on him:he loved his enemy.
---Gina7 on 5/12/07


Geoff...i think Lee found it time and time again
---mark_B on 5/11/07


Lee, love for God is not an imposition either. We should be willing to do anything He asks. Many even go as far as laying down their lives for their obedience.

I think you are trying to convince yourself the Sabbath is a ceremonial law even if you can't find scriptural backing.
---Geoff on 5/11/07




TS. IF what you say is true then how come Jews/Sabbatarians keep Abib 15th as the Sabbath/Passover/1st day Unleavened bread when scripture clearly says Abib 14th is Passover and the 15th is the 1st day Unleavened bread? And if Abib was start of creation week as in Genesis then the 14th should be the Sabbath. And if that is true then the day the Jews called the preparation day was actually the Sabbath?
---Toby on 5/11/07


Toby: No days have been removed. The weekly cycle has been kept since antiquity. Christ kept the Sabbath thus affirming the day the Jews Kept as correct. It has not been lost since then.

In 1582 the calender was changed so that the day after Thursday October 4 became Firday October 15. Saturday has always followed Friday, "The Preparation Day."
---TS on 5/9/07


Romans 13:8- Owe nothing, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. The commandments, You shall not commit adultery, not murder, not steal, not covet, & any other commandment, are summed up in this word: shall love your neighbor as yourself.

Geoff - love of others should never be an imposition on the believer. But the Sabbath commandment is strictly a ceremonial Old Covenant law not imposed on the church & has no support in the New Covenant dispensation.
---lee on 5/9/07


Gordon. You say its in scripture, "there to be read". Please show me where it says that Saturday is the Sabbath, or where a calculation points to Saturday as the Sabbath. We agree that the 7th day is the Sabbath but "days" have been removed, Israelites have spent much time in captivity.
Constantine changed some things. Can you prove Saturday is the Sabbath? With the Sabbath being so special, wouldnt scripture speak plainly as to the day or does Rev 12:9 apply
---Toby on 5/9/07


Lee, is God's Holy 10 Commandment Law an imposition on you or do you love them?

My hands also will I lift up unto Thy Commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in Thy Statutes. Psalm 119:48

Gina - *Lee you know all too well that the New Covenant is God writing those exact same 10 commandments upon our hearts and minds ...*

The priest & the Levite upon encountering the injured man upon the road to Jericho (Lk. 10:30) were indeed good commandment keepers whereas the Good Samaritan was probably not but did the right thing in showing love towards his neighbor.

The 7th Day Sabbath was established in Genesis when GOD created the heavens and Earth in six literal days. Then He rested on the 7th day. The day we now know as Saturday. Then in Exodus 8, GOD wrote the Commandment to remember and observe the 7th day Sabbath for HIS people. The "custom" of keeping the TRUE Sabbath was handed down from generation to generation. JESUS (YAHUSHUA) kept the Sabbath, He perfectly obeyed the Father in EVERY WAY! IT IS IN THE HOLY BIBLE, there to be READ!
---Gordon on 5/7/07


Toby,
regarding your question for evidence in scripture of Saturday = Sabbath. Mark 15:42, Luke 23:54 both indicate that the cruxifiction took place the day before the Sabbath (Good Friday) in fact the NLT translates it as Friday. John 20:1, Luke 24:1, Mark 16:2, Matthew 28:1 all indicate that the resurrection took place on the first day of the week (Easter Sunday) again the NLT translates 1st day of the week as Sunday. Hope this answers your question. As of now I am moving on from this website.

Lee "Glen - You do not know the Scriptures; sorry to break your bubble but no one argues the fact that Jesus born under the law, kept all the laws of the Old covenant. However, at the Cross, the New Covenant was ushered in." Lee you know all too well that the New Covenant is God writing those exact same 10 commandments upon our hearts and minds as Hebrews 8:10 declares. Jesus wrote the 10 w/ His own finger, He obeyed them as our example,& He gives us the power to obey now & stop sinning.

Old Covenant (Testament) is God writing the Law on tables of stone and the Israelites promising to obey in their own power. // The New Covenant (Testament) is God writing the law through the Holy Spirit, into our hearts and minds so that we obey Him out of love, in the power of Christ's victorious death on the cross.

"And the temple of God was opened in Heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament, and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake and great hail" Rev11:19 As on earth, when the ark contained God's 10 commandments (testament)so it is in heaven. Testament = God's 10 Commandent Laws. The New Testament, or Covenant, was ratified by the death of Christ, and is God writing those laws into our hearts (instead of on stone) Heb 8:10
---Gina7 on 5/5/07


"For where a testament is,there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. For a testament is of force AFTER men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth" Heb 9:16,17 The New Test(Covenant)was made by the blood of Christ on cross. It came into effect the moment He died. Nothing could be added to or taken away after that. Since the New Covenant is God writing His Law into our hearts (Heb 8:10) it was the unchanged 10 Commandment Law at Christ's death.
---Gina7 on 5/5/07


The New Covenant was ratified by the body & blood of Jesus,when He died on the cross. Nothing could be added to, or taken away from it, after that, otherwise it would constitute voiding the New Covenant. Hebrews 8:10 = New Covenant God writes His law in our hearts, & when Christ died, 7th day was the Sabbath. It still is the Sabbath. Therefore 7th day Sabbath observance is still a part of the New Covenant, contrary to popular opinion. We obey all 10C out of Love.

Toby "Hi Gina7. You rightly expound that the Sabbath is the 7th day as per scripture and that we are to keep it however the question is "What is the true biblical Sabbath"?" Hi Toby,just saw your post. Your Q seems rhetorical, as you just said "Sabbath is the 7th day as per scripture" so, the 7th day of the week is the Biblical Sabbath. The 4th C of Exodus 20:8-11 describes it.It is not any more complicated than that: 7th day, from sundown Fri to sundown Sat.
---Gina7 on 5/5/07


Hi Toby, I know earlier today I answered a question you placed towards Glen about Jesus keeping holy the 7th day. I do not mean to offend by answering a question you directed to someone else. I know sometimes people do not answer the questions and people welcome somebody to answer, but if this is not the case here I appologize.
---Gina7 on 5/5/07


jana, you are so focused on law that you are blinded tot he fact that Christ is not just the fulfillent of the law but the prophets as well. The prophets continualy brought messages of warning and repentance ot Israel, and Israel never listened. On the mount of transfiguration both Moses (THe representative of law) and Elijah (The representative of the prophets) disappeared and Christ stood alone as the one to be listened to.
---Ryan_Z on 5/5/07


Toby "So prove to me in scripture that The Messiah kept Saturday as the Sabbath." You know that Jesus was the perfect sacrifice, the Lamb of God without spot or blemish, correct (John 1:29)? It means He was without sin. Sin is the breaking of any of the 10 Commandments (1John3:4)therefore since He was without sin, He did not break any of the commandments, including the 4th,but kept them perfectly. Also, Luke 4:16 shows it was His custom to worship God on the Sabbath.

So Lee: what is the New Covenant ushered in. Dont give me something else but only the one pertaining to this particular issue..what is the New Covenant..and who is it...what is the law and who is it??? I await your answer if any...
---jana on 5/5/07


Toby,

Scripture is clear that the seventh day is the Sabbath. Genesis 2 & Exodus 20. Look at most foreign languages. For example in Spanish the word for the 7th day (saturday) is Sabbato, which also can be rendered Sabbath. Also just because some of the Jews of Jesus time committed murder doesn't mean all the Jews are unfaithful.
---Glen on 5/4/07


Lee,

I wish you luck and good fortune. I don't claim to be the "all knowing". However, one thing I know is that believing Jesus means also believing what he has said "I did not come to abolish the law". At this time I will follow his instruction to wipe the dust off of my feet and move on. Good luck.
---Glen on 5/4/07


Hi Glen. You say The Messiah kept the Sabbath on Saturday. We are told to "prove all things" (1 Th5:21) So prove to me in scripture that The Messiah kept Saturday as the Sabbath. Please dont just say because the Jews are keeping it today and they have the oracles, for the same Jews, with premeditation murdered The Messiah, and set out to slay the Apostles. so their witness is suspect. It must come from scripture, with at least 2 witnesses. Cheers

Glen - You do not know the Scriptures; sorry to break your bubble but no one argues the fact that Jesus born under the law, kept all the laws of the Old covenant. However, at the Cross, the New Covenant was ushered in.

Gal. 4:4-5 But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
---lee on 5/3/07


The fact that Saturday is the Sabbath can easily be proven by the simple fact that Jesus himself kept the Sabbath on that day. If the Jews were in error he would have cerainly corrected them on it since He is the one who wrote the law in the first place.
---Glen on 5/3/07


Jana a couple of things you should respect
1 I wrote to Gina7. 2 Why did you yell at me? 3 Why did you not read my writing properly before you replied? Are you telling me Jews/Sabbatarians dont teach that Saturday is the Sabbath? From Adam to now approx 6000 yrs, and no Saturday in Adams time. Can you prove from scripture that Saturday/Saturn Day/Satyn Day is the Sabbath. Also why did you not notice that I also keep the Sabbath?
---Toby on 5/3/07


Toby: the Jews didnt teach the 7th day Sabbath..God did and when He did, there weren't any Jews but only Adam. No, the Jews havent got it wrong. Gen2:2 God ended His work on the 7th day V3 and blessed n sanctified it. Then Ex20 the 10commandments. The 4th "REMEMBER THE SABBATH TO KEEP IT HOLY" this is why we go to church one day a week..the 7th day, not the first day Sunday.John 14:15 IF U LOVE ME, KEEP COMMANDMENTS.

Hi Gina7. You rightly expound that the Sabbath is the 7th day as per scripture and that we are to keep it however the question is "What is the true biblical Sabbath"? We know the Jews/Sabbatarians teach "Saturday" as the 7th day Sabbath but can we prove that from scripture, or is there another day that is proveable as the true Sabbath, and they have got it wrong, I think thats the question?
---Toby on 4/29/07


the Sabbath is a day devoted to God. 1 out of 7 days. it is a day where you worship and praise God and you rest from work. I don't see any day actually set up for this, since the bible only states that six day you should labor and the seventh you should rest. the question that everyone needs to answer is what day do you count as the first and what is the seventh. it doesn't have to be according to the calendar.

By the 2nd century, the church had rejected God's Sabbath due to the fact that the Pope allowed the gentiles to enter into the church bringing in their pagan things and in time, the true Sabbath was forgotten however, God never ever authorised its change. The 7th day Sabbath of God still stands as it always has been right from its inception. Satan will have you belive it is no longer required..Christ is the Sabbath..
---jana on 4/16/07


Lee, where do you come off saying "the Jewish Sabbath was not imposed on the church"? First, it's not the Jew's but the Lord's Sabbath-Ex 20:10-notice the Personal pronoun. You confuse the annual ceremonial (Jewish) sabbaths-Lv 16:31; 23:24, 32, 39-with the 7th day Sabbath of the Lord thy God.

Then you look at God's laws as an "imposition." That's your problem. God is imposing on your life when you want to do your own thing. Are you saying God imposed on the Jews?

Could not agree more as the Jewish Sabbath was not imposed on the church at all (Acts 15). In fact, the observance of any day is something totally optional according to Romans 14:5-6 as are dietary rules.

The church since the beginning of the 2nd century has had communal worship on the 1st day of the week in accordance to that tradition established by the Apostles themselves. 2 Thess. 2;15.

It is ludicrous to think God changed his Sabbath to a Sunday. It was understood that the early church kept the Sabbath. The Gentiles were 'grafted in', the Jews weren't 'grafted into a pagan custom.' But, unfortunately, many christians continue to follow a corrupted religion, insisting on worshipping God the way He does not approve.
