Unholy Days Of The Week

I have asked this question whenever the Saturday Sabbath issue comes up, and nobody has ever answered it, so I'll try again.

If Saturday is supposed to kept holy, on what day/s of the week since Christ came do we get to be profane, unholy, and utterly sinful and keep it in an ungodly manner?

Samuelbb7:

You said: Your answer is that He is wrong and you have chosen the day you want. Unless you can show me where GOD says that he agrees I must agree with GOD.

Yet Paul later clarified that it is acceptable to hold one day of the week as holier than the others, or to hold them all equally holy - that each of us should be persuaded in his own mind. He also said we should not allow anyone to judge us with regards to sabbath days.

Unless you can show me where GOD says that Paul is wrong, I must agree with Paul.

Your answer is that He is wrong and you have chosen the day you want. Unless you can show me where GOD says that he agrees I must agree with GOD.
---Samuelbb7 on 10/20/15

I have shown you and Jerry both.

It is Jesus saying that the Sabbath was made for us, not us for the Sabbath. Why do you think Jesus said that at all? Because people were judging the work that could be done on the Sabbath.

The Sabbath is a principle as much as a commandment. It is the principle of resting. Resting from work, resting your servants, resting your animals, and resting your fields. And thanking God for the rest.
---Mark_Eaton on 10/21/15


Samuelbb7:

You keep missing the point. The Sabbath was about REST, not WORSHIP. Yes, it is necessary to rest from work to be able to worship (which is why special holy days were also sabbaths), but it is not necessary to worship in order to rest. As Jesus said, the sabbath was made for MAN, not man for the sabbath.

There are so many ultra-religious people today (whether they be Jewish, SDA, or Sunday Christians) who spend their entire sabbath (as they perceive it to be) around religious activities, giving them no time for rest at all, turning something God gave them for one purpose (recuperate from work) into something he never commanded them to do at all (worship him once a week on a specific day).
---StrongAxe on 10/21/15


I did not mean to carry that limitation. Yes we can spend time in prayer with GOD and visit Him every day.

But he asks to spend a whole day with him not just a short visit. To take off from work and lay aside all the things of the world to spend time with him.

Should we not listen to what day He says to do this instead of saying: "No I don't like the day you picked or chose I am going to tell you what day I will give you when I feel like it."

Christians used to spend Sunday as a Sabbath and called it that. But today most cannot wait to get home and watch the game. Not spending the day with GOD at all. Just a little time.

Samuelbb7:

You argument carries the hidden subtext: "I'm your dad, and your welcome to visit me, as long as it's on this one day of the week. Other days, I'm just too busy."

We, as finite humans living in an imperfect world, frequently have to deal with issues that just don't conveniently line themselves up with a calendar (e.g. Jesus healing the sick on the Sabbath, him asking the Pharisees if they would rescue a lamb on the Sabbath, etc.), which can make it difficult to always set aside a specific day of every week.

God, however, has no such limitations.

Would not a real relationship between me and my father contain a dialog to decide "what day of rest would be best for you" because it is MY rest.
Mark_Eaton

Well GOD our Father said the Seventh day as a day of rest and worship. Mark 2:27 Exodus 20.

Your answer is that He is wrong and you have chosen the day you want. Unless you can show me where GOD says that he agrees I must agree with GOD.

I have believed you Rob. I was not raised an SDA. In fact I was an agnostic who thought god didn't exist and the Bible was full of lies.

Ah, but this is not what the Sabbath is about. The Sabbath is about rest. You have made it about worship.

I worship our Heavenly Father every day, not just on Saturday. I choose to rest on Sunday.

Samuelbb7, your apology is gracefully and gratefully accepted, and I thank you.

Sometimes we make mistakes, and this includes myself. Some people believe they are never wrong, never make mistakes, and are never to be corrected.

I worked in the children and youth ministries for many years. Sometimes I was corrected by them in areas where I was clearly in the wrong.

Even they were younger, I accepted their correction because I needed it!

Jerry, on 10/15/2015 you people do work on the Sabbath. Are they employees, or are they volunteers? If they are employees and are not payed, this goes against labor laws.

---Rob on 10/17/15


Samuelbb7:

You said: We can feel and believe anything we want to. But what does the Bible say. As you pointed out the Bible says GOD made the Sabbath for us. Why would you refuse the gift?

Because Paul (who, I believe, was a fairly good authority on Christian doctrine) said it was perfectly fine to treat all days as equally holy, so (for example), it's just as fine to go to church on Sunday as it is on Saturday, or even Tuesday.

He also said we should not allow ourselves to be judged by others in this. The constant haranguing on this by SDAs shows that they consider the issue to be of key importance, and that those who don't follow the Sabbath are somehow less obedient to God's word - i.e. they are judging them.
---StrongAxe on 10/17/15


Rob I apologize for my mistake. I must have confused you with someone else. I have been told many times I am going to hell for keeping the Sabbath.

It is also true that not all members of the SDA church are Christians. I too have run into them.

Mark Eaton if your father called you and said I have made all my Saturday's clear so you can come visit me. Would you tell him. No. I will only come when I feel like it and will not come on Saturday.

What would that say?

Samuelbb7, who is the one who is being EVIL?

Please share any place where I wrote anywhere that keeping the Sabbath was EVIL.

First of all, I have been helping people with food, clothing, and shelter for over 40 years, regardless of the day of the week.

I had decent paying jobs, earning more than I needed. Most of the money I used came from my own pocket.

Second, in the past, I mentioned when I was a teenager my parents became SDA. Some were very pleasant to be around. Others were downright EVIL, Matthew 23:1-7!
---Rob on 10/16/15


Before I retired, I could go weeks at a time without having a day off from work.

This was not because I needed the money, it was because I had a critical job, and was really needed at work.

Why is it some SDA say this was okay because I was needed, yet other SDA would say I was breaking the LAW by not keeping the SABBATH, and needed to be condemned!
---Rob on 10/16/15


the Sabbath belongs to GOD not to us. We just join him in following his example.
---Samuelbb7 on 10/15/15

I see this differently.

Jesus told us that the Sabbath was made for man. Now, if I create a carved statue for you, is it not yours? Would I create a carved statue for you and not give it to you? Would I create a carved statue for you just to admire?

This is the same as the Eucharist. Jesus used matzah and wine when He created the remembrance. Yet many have substituted the wafer and grape juice.

I see no error with the Eucharist or with the Sunday Sabbath.

Rob the Sabbath belongs to GOD not to us. We just join him in following his example.

Luke 6:9
Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing, Is it lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it?

To do good on the Sabbath as you would see if you read the whole chapter is correct and good.

I helped feed people during a disaster on the Sabbath and another time gave away clothing on Sabbath. Why do you believe helping others on Sabbath is evil?

The Trinitarian belief is, essentially, "The Father is God. The Son is God. The Holy Spirit is God. -BUT- The Father is not the Son. The Father is not the Holy Spirit. The Son is not the Holy Spirit".

The Holy Spirit did not die on the cross. Jesus did not descend at Pentecost. The Holy Spirit did not levitate Jesus down to earth at the Father's baptism to say "Behold my Father, in whom I am well pleased".

You said: the subject was HISTORY - not CURRENT EVENTS. Please try to keep up.

There has been so much whining about Roman Catholicism changing the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday. Here are a few churches that were not afffiliated with Rome, so not subject to her traditions. What they observe TODAY is what they have been observing for the past two millenia, pretty much the whole history of Christianity.

Paul said we may treat all days as equally holy, and allow no man to judge us with respect to Sabbath days? Was he wrong?

why do you WANT to be that way?

The blog question is sarcastic reductio ad absurdum - if someone keeps one day MORE holy, then other days must be LESS holy.
---StrongAxe on 10/12/15


cluny: "Go ask an Assyrian or Ethiopian Christians if this is what they do today."

Uhhh... the subject was HISTORY - not CURRENT EVENTS. Please try to keep up.

In direct answer to your blog question, God made six common work days (which includes Sunday), but only one holy day - the seventh day Sabbath. In my reading of the Bible, on NO days do we "get" to be profane, unholy, sinful and ungodly. The question you should ask is why do you WANT to be that way?

And once again, does the Orthodox Church teach that the Ten Commandments are binding on Christians or not?


---jerry6593 on 10/12/15


-Samuelbb7 on 10/11/15: I am not sure whether the commandment of 'Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy' ALWAYS needs to be kept. Of course the Sabbath is to be remembered, and kept holy - but in fact we are to keep all days holy.
What I mean is perhaps, now that we also use the first day to remember the Resurrection (John calls it The Lord's Day once - Rev 1:10, though in his Gospel he says the first day) we may move some things from God's rest day to Christ's resurrection day.
As a result, I feel we should remember both days, and not spend so much time arguing which is 'correct'

I am sorry that you think I was vague Nicole. Maybe I did not understand the point you were making.

Samuel is right, Cluny. Your question is based on a false premise. Neither you or anyone else is capable of making a day holy or unholy - that is the exclusive province of God. You can choose to sin by disobeying God if you choose, and thus elect not to keep holy the one and only day He made holy. But don't pretend that your sins don't matter.


---jerry6593 on 10/5/15


I would like to think that you are kidding about such a question that assumes that THERE IS a day set aside for debauchery, corruption/iniquity, etc......BUT from experience, it seems a logical misconception.

Many people seem to truly believe that God makes allowances for 'UNpeace' and DISharmony. No, He does not make allowances for unpeaceful behavior or behavior that disrupts harmony among humanity. We must not do anything that is UNJUST (only do what is just and peaceful (this is a holy character/spirit).

If your attitude/spirit enables you to learn peace from God's divine Spirit, then you worship properly.

The Ten Commandments are given in Exodus 20. Exodus 16 speaks of the Sabbath.

You assume the people did not know about GOD anymore nor their Father Abraham. On what basis do you assume this?

To the author of this blog.

No day of the week are we to be unholy. The Sabbath is a special time of worship and setting aside the world to concentrate on Jesus. While fellow-shipping with others.

So your question is a false one. You misuse what Sabbath is. Your question is not a true question. It is an attempt to vindicate your desire to not have a Sabbath on the day he selected.
---Samuelbb7 on 10/3/15


Paul is correct when he says that those holy day laws were weak and beggarly:
Gal 4:9-11 How turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage? I am afraid of you
He was afraid because they leaned towards something other than the that which gave them salvation: the preaching of the cross. Observing the seventh day as holier than other days in the week has the same affect of limiting the effect of the cross to one day.
As we magnify the holy accomplishments of Christ on the cross we should putt off those weaker elements and let no man judge us regarding not observing those once holy days (Col 2:16 ).

/Why was it called the Sabbath if it was no longer the Sabbath?\-Samuelbb7 on 8/7/15
It was called the Sabbath because it was the seventh day and God rested.
Notice the Hebrew:
Rest: Shin-Bet-Tav
Seventh: Shin-Bet-Yod-Ayin-Yod
Sabbath: Shin Bet-Tav
It was not until the Exodus that His people were, 1st, commanded not to gather on the "seventh", then, later, to "rest" on the "seventh" in remembrance.
It would be hard for people prior to the Exodus to remember the "Sabbath" since they did not gather manna for 6 days, watching God's glorious provision right before their eyes, nor was told about it as history, as commanded to Israel's generations.

Well transgression of the law is called sin.

1John 3:4

Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

Romans 3:20
Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

Romans 3:31
Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

Romans 6 do not live in sin.
Romans 13 love leads us to obey the Commandmnts.
James.

Why was it called the Sabbath if it was no longer the Sabbath?

\\Yes Cluny it is mentioned in Acts 15.\\

But not as obligatory upon Gentiles or Gentile Christians.

Those gentiles curious to hear the Apostles when to the shul, then on about their business.

Happy Transfiguration!

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Cluny,

First, the Sabbath is for everyone and it was created even before there were a nation called Israel/Jews see Genesis 2:1-3.

The Sabbath is for those who truly love Yahweh and delight in his ways.

What is ironic of your question is those who are profane, unholy, and utterly sinful love not Yahweh not to mention Shabbat (the Sabbath)

Yes Cluny it is mentioned in Acts 15.

Acts 15:21
For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.

It is also mentioned in:

Acts 13:44
And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God.

Why was it still called the Sabbath day if it wasn't the Sabbath day anymore?

Doesn't Holy mean set aside for sacred use? The other six days are set aside for work. But on Sabbath we are not to work but set the time apart as Holy Time.

\\Tell me who is called to the Sabbath??
---john9346 on 8/5/15\\

My understanding is that was obligatory ONLY on Jews and had nothing to do with worship.

It is not mentioned in Acts 15 on how much of the Torah Gentiles were required to observe.

Happy Transfiguration.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

"
If Saturday is supposed to kept holy, on what day/s of the week since Christ came do we get to be profane, unholy, and utterly sinful and keep it in an ungodly manner?"

Cluny, you misunderstand a basic fundamental.

If you can answer this question, you will have your answer.

"on what day/s of the week since Christ came do we get to be profane, unholy, and utterly sinful and keep it in an ungodly manner?

None Cluny, if you expect to receive God's blessings at the same time. However if that is the way you wish to live He will allow it and you'll live to regret it when you realise just how He is dealing with you.

An unholy day is just a common day. What makes something holy is that it has been claimed as special or separate.
The sons of Aaron used unholy fire to light the tabernacle. There was nothing different between the fire in the tabernacle and the fire from a camp site except the camp fire was considered unholy because God called it to be.
There is a difference between unholy and sinful. Going to work is an unholy act. Stealing is a sinful act.

We're never to be unholy and profane. When we are Born Again we quit being full of sin and become full of the Holy Spirit.

But we are to work at secular activities 6 days a week.

WE are to follow the day that GOD set aside at creation.

Mark 3:4

We are supposed to do good every day. But Sabbath has rules for how to spend time with GOD. We put aside the secular activities and spend time in prayer, Worshiping together, Bible study and with family.

Isaiah 56:6
Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant,
Isaiah 58:13

"If Saturday is supposed to kept holy,.. Holy, as applicable to the 7th day, is defined as "set apart", [as concerning the sabbath], for rest.
