Sabbath Obsession on Debate Forums continue…


Christian response, The Sabbath obsession is a psychological and spiritual illness. The Sabbath was never given to the Gentile as a day of observance nor did the Jerusalem Council in Acts 15 instruct the New Testament Church to observe the Sabbath nor was an observance of the Torah commanded as God’s Law is written upon the heart of the faithful through the Spirit. CHRISTIANS ARE NOT BOUND BY THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH (The Torah) BUT THE CHRISTIAN OBSERVES THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT AS WRITTEN ON OUR HEART AND ADMINISTERED BY HIM THROUGH SANCTIFICATION (Romans 8:3; Hebrews 10; Jeremiah 31).

The Sabbath was given to Moses and the Hebrew Tribes in Exodus 16 some 2500-years subsequent to the 6th-7th-Day of Creation and the Hebrew Tribes required instruction as to how to observe this new Sabbath edict as said edict had never been relevant prior to this time. The 4th-Commandment was codified in stone at Sinai in Exodus 20 and again, given ONLY to the Hebrew Tribes and converts to Judaism. The Sabbath is NOT relevant in the New Covenant established in Messiah Jesus’ blood (Luke 22:20; Hebrews 4) as the Christian is free in Jesus to rest and/or worship on any day they choose and NO ONE, not Seventh Day Adventists or Jews or Law Keepers or any sect of Sabbatarians, possesses the authority to tell a Christian what day they must worship and how they must worship (Romans 14). Jesus is the fulfillment of the Sabbath’s rest mandate (Hebrews 4; Colossians 2:16). Your obsession with a day is wearisome and it is becoming offensive in its suggestive condemnation and in its frequency.

Romans 14, concerning a day to honor our Lord…

5 One person values one day over another, another values every day the same. Each person must be fully convinced in his own mind. 6 The one who observes the day, observes it for the Lord, and the one who eats, does so with regard to the Lord, for he gives thanks to God; and the one who does not eat, it is for the Lord that he does not eat, and he gives thanks to God. 7 For not one of us lives for himself, and not one dies for himself; 8 for if we live, we live for the Lord, or if we die, we die for the Lord; therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s. 9 For to this end Christ died and lived again, that He might be Lord both of the dead and of the living.10 But as for you, why do you judge your brother or sister? Or you as well, why do you regard your brother or sister with contempt? For we will all appear before the judgment seat of God. 11 For it is written:“As I live, says the Lord, to Me every knee will bow,And every tongue will give praise to God.”12 So then each one of us will give an account of himself to God.
