I agree with you about the denominational institutions who mostly use people for money. I too do not attend a church!! But the Catholic catechism openly admits changing the sabbath to sunday!! And as for why any other Christians consider sunday the sabbath it is because it was changed by the Constantine, and over time Christians just followed suit!! The sabbath is not just for worship!!! That, I think is the confusion. It is a day of REST and WORSHIP!! I worship everyday as I hope most Christians do. But The seventh day of saturday is a day for worship, and devotion to God! In The book of Genesis God describes what he did on each day. But the seventh day was an extra day he made specifically for us to show our love and devotion to him. If it was not significant then he would not have bothered adding it!!! Plus, it is in the ten commandments. And I believe everyone must follow the commandments. Most of the time I hear people argue that God abolished the ten commandments because they did not work. But God should have known that they wouldn't work!! And again would not have bothered creating them!! The more people that turn their backs on these Churches, the better I will agree!! I believe that all churches have been decieved one way or another by satan!!!


GOD BLESS!!!

My Mother yes, but you don't know the rest of my Family!! LOL To be completely honest, I don't spend alot of time wondering who the "HOE" (as you put it) is. I spend more time loving the precious moments with my Wife and daughters because I never know when it may end. And Seventh-Day Adventist it is!! I'm just still kind of new to it and still trying to figure out what is right for my family. Thanks for your input Thomas. Definately appreciated!!


GOD BLESS!!!

My point was: How can he be Lord of the sabbath if the sabath day is no more?? And didn't Jesus consider saturday the sabbath with judaism?? If all days were days for rest, and devotion to God then nobody would be working. If I remember correctly Jesus was a carpenter. Working everyday except the sabbath!!


GOD BLESS!!!

Look to the Spirit for the definition of "rest" and not man and you will find your answer. Keep in mind that we don't follow the letter of the law anymore but the spirit of the law.

True, but wether the letter of the law, or the spirit of the law isn't it still Gods law??? And if His law isn't the ten commandments, then what are His laws??

What history? What facts? The only thing you have stated is that I'm wrong, and my beliefs are junk. So lets hear your facts!!! I would love a history lesson!!! I'm always willing to learn.


GOD BLESS YOU, JOE TOWN MOM!!!

"Zai Jian" is Chinese for "see you later."
