Auto spell correction does weird things sometime :) The Sabbath was given into perpetuity (not perspicuity although it is clear and intelligible) and changes not.

Tell that to Jesus when He returns. Where in the bible does it say that because some Christians met on the first day of the week that this meeting somehow changed God's Sabbath from the beginning of creation? I suppose keeping the other commandments such as thou shalt not murder, thou shalt not steal , thou shalt not commit adultery , et al is also just legalism! So sad. You prove your relationship by keeping His commandments, not by making an excuse for not keeping them. It is called bearing fruit in accordance with the vine you are attached to. Obedience follows salvation and is the reflection of gratitude toward the priceless gift of salvation. One cannot earn a gift but one can show appreciation for the gift by doing as God has asked. "Sabbath keepers are wrong." I guess non murderers and non thieves and non liars and non adulterers are all wrong too because they make it a rule and legalism is just wrong. If your logic wasn't so absurd and consequential, it could be laughable but because of the stakes at play, this is no laughing matter. And "nothing to do with the Catholic Church"! CATHOLIC ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Question: How prove you that the church hath power to command feasts and holy days? Answer: By the very act of changing the Sabbath into Sunday, which Protestants all of; and therefore they fondly contradict themselves, by keeping Sunday strictly, the seventh day - a change for which there is no Scriptural authority. and breaking most other feasts commanded by the same church. H. Tuberville, An Abridgment of christian Doctrine, p.58. Question: Is the observance of Sunday as the day of rest a matter clearly laid down in Scripture? answer: It certainly is not: and yet all Protestants consider the observance of this particular day as essentially necessary to salvation. To say we observe the Sunday because Christ rose from the dead on that day, is to say we act without warrant of Scripture: we might as well say that we should rest on Thursday, because Christ ascended to heaven on that day, and rested in reality from the work of redemption. Dr. Stephen Keenan, The Controversial Catechism, p.160. Question: Have you any other way of proving the Church has power to institute festivals of precept? Answer: Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with her - she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday, the first day of the week, for the observance of Saturday, the seventh day - a change for which there is no Scriptural authority. Dr. Stephen Keenan, A Doctrinal Catechism, 3rd Edition, p.174. Question: Which is the Sabbath day? Answer: Saturday is the Sabbath. Question: Why do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday? Answer: We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic church in the council of Laodicea [A.D. 336] transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday. Peter Geiermann, The Convert's Catechism of Catholic doctrine, 1934, p.50 So Gary, do you still believe "It has nothing to do with the Catholic church"???? Daniel 7:25 speaks about the actions of the antichrist who seeks to "change times and laws" but hey, I am just being "legalistic". My, my, you need to study up on the ancient origins of the Babylonian religion that changed the names of all their pagan gods with the names of biblical characters and called it Christianity. The Israelite''s were instructed to gather the manna for six days and a double portion on the sixth day (the Sabbath supply that did not spoil) and to not gather any on the Sabbath. This instruction came many weeks BEFORE Moses and the tribes gathered at the foot of Mount Sinai and Moses was given the ALL READY UNDERSTOOD Decalog but now it was inscribed on tablets of stone by the finger of God. Genesis 2: 3 is where God blessed the 7th day and sanctified it and made it holy. The Bible is replete with the evidence that the apostles and Jesus all observed and kept the Sabbath and Acts 13:44 , as well as all of Acts, tells the custom of the believers to gather on the Sabbath to hear the Word of God. What is so strange is why is a clear doctrine so graciously given to us by our Creator in perpetual remembrance of Him as our Creator even open for debate? Our God id a jealous God and will share His glory with no one. The one commandment given that we are instructed to remember to keep holy is the Sabbath and it is also to remind us of our Creator God. Lucifer attempts to destroy the worship of God as our Creator by changing the very day God Himself set aside for this purpose and Lucifer has been very successful in this. The Sabbath was given into perspicuity and changes not. Just imagine how different our world would be if all mankind always observed this one commandment faithfully every seven days without fail. Just imagine the whole world stopping from engaging in commerce, i.e. money, every seven days to acknowledge our Creator. Remember also Luke 16:13 you cannot serve both God and money. choose this day whom you will serve, as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. Joshua 24:15 Some unsolicited advice to my two commenters. We are not expected to know everything and be able to speak about it but we are expected to know everything about that which we choose to speak.

The early Christian church began meeting on Sundays because that is the day of Jesus' Resurrection. God gave authority through Jesus to his disciples. They were to go and preach and spread the good news. Jesus conferred the authority of the church to Peter. Having structure is good. Otherwise you have a bunch of lambs running off and doing their own thing and really getting entangled in a lot of barbed wire. Apologies for the metaphor. All that being said, we must have faith that our church fathers were Holy Spirit inspired with their spreading, teaching, and interpreting of the good news. The Catholic Church is not all bad.

Nine of the Ten Commandments are repeated in the New Testament. We are not told in the N. T. to keep the Sabbath. Jesus rose from the dead on Sunday, so the first Christians (who were Jews, of course) met on Sunday. We can worship the Lord 24/7, but we need to be gathering with our fellow believers on the first day of the week. The apostle Paul reinforced this when he told the Christians in Corinth to set aside their offerings on the first day of the week, the "Lord's Day."

Thanks for this video! Funny and insightful!

He has no idea what he's missing out on, he's trying it his way, and completely leaving God out of it, that's not how to live the Christian life! He's cherry picking, choosing what works best for him, doesn't he realise that God works best for him? What teaching is he listening to, or not listening to as the case may be?

Keeping the Sabbath holy is an important commandment that God gave to Moses, not Adam and Eve. Having read the bible, I'm sure that when Jesus returns our salvation will depend more on whether or not we have a relationship with HIM, rather than on which day of the week we worshipped.

Kind of like "what have you done for your church" lately. We need a little more giving a whole lot less taking. BTW, I have DSL and many of your videos load slowly--stopping and starting--which makes them difficult to watch.

  • 2012-07-18T15:57:33

Great points Marty. The video isn't directed at someone in your position, instead it is meant for those who entire remove Christ from the equation, and go to church to enjoy what the body wants. As long as Christ is the purpose... and the only purpose.

Thanks for the comments everyone. I created this video to illustrate that church is more than just GOING. Church is about LIVING it. Feel free to download it and show it at your church from WorshipHouse media, on the link above. Happy to answer any questions you have as well.

People need to mind their own business, most people who criticize singles are married people who forgot how it is to be single. Praise God for singles ministries, better than going to a night club!

Well if Christians, yet to this day, lack the spiritual discernment to know, understand, believe and obey the keeping of God's unchangeable Decalog, then practicing correct church attendance needs to begin with properly keeping the Sabbath. And no, I am no more a Seventh Day Adventist or a Jew any more than Adam and Eve were, to whom the commandment to keep the Sabbath was given and by extension then to all of us for we were all "in" Adam and Eve. The Catholic Church boasts that it is a "mark" of their authority over the the Word of God for their ability to have changed keeping the Sabbath from sunset Friday to sunset Saturday and they now have most of all "Christianity" blindly honoring their Sun god worship by "worshiping" on Sun Day, the pagan day of the Sun. Read your bible anew with an open heart and mind to realize that when Jesus returns He is looking for those who keep His commandments. You have been warned and are therefor without excuse. Discern wisely.

I can be guilty of something similar to this..... Many will comment "Why" and I expect it.... But the Church I call my Home Church does not have a Singles Ministry so I go to another Church on Fridays for their Singles Ministry which is open to all other Churches that do not have a Singles Ministry! It is a Bible Study for Singles... Now as I watch this video, I am laughing until I get what the message is: There are those that are totally "Knit Picky" (as I would say) about different Churches. So they Church jump! Now Me? I was invited by a friend that also attends this Singles Ministry.

This may be funny but it is not the rason to be going to church.
