Sunday or Saturday - which one is the
acceptable Biblical day of worship?
If you really want to know the truth about
the Sabbath please go to
http://www.sabbaths.org/sabbath.html and prayerfully
study the evidence given there. It's not a question about
which day is The Sabbath. There is only one Sabbath
and it is Saturday. However, the New Testament is
clear about the Sabbath. Come and discover what God's
Word has to say about it.
Huuummmmmmmm, this is a controversial, doctrinal and
an age long theological question that demands a response
from someone who has been inside the Church where Saturday
is chosen as a day of worship. I have researched into
this question and found that the author whose text I have
downloaded word-for-word has a comprehensive answer than I
could suppy. I have read his reasons why Sunday should
be a day of worship for all those who are Christians and I
agree with him.
This man also has a testimony to share apart from the write
up. You can view his write up and testimony of
conversion to Sunday worshipper in:
It is important to stress that you can worship on Sunday and
still go to hell fire.
It is important for you to accept the Lord of the day in
your heart. It is disheartening that some people hold
a form of religion and deny the power thereof. It is
crucial for one to be born of the Spirit - John 3:3,7.
It is also worth saying that one should repent and be
Acts 3.19,20. "Repent, then, and turn to God, so that
your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may
come from the Lord, and that he may send the Christ, who has
been appointed for you even Jesus."
Let all things in your life such as sins depart. You
may worship on Sunday and still go hell if you are not born

Friday from sundown to Saturday at sundown is the true
Sabbath, days rest. Sunday being the first day of the week
symbolizes new beginnings, and is so adopted by the
Christians, however every day is the correct day to worship
God Jehovah. A good question, your brother in Christ,
From sundown Friday to sundown Saturday is the Sabbath day,
which we are told in the 10 Commandments, to remember and
keep it Holy. But, Sunday is the day on which our Saviour
rose from the dead. To me, either one is acceptable. We are
commanded to respect the Sabbath by the Lord himself.
For the Jews it Saturday and for the Born again Christians
Tells us in the Bible not to get caught up in what day is
Holy.............To some it might be Saturday and to others,
Christ told the disciples to meet together on the first day
of the week until I come. It is generaally accepted that the
church was different from the Jewish Sabbath, and they were
not under the Law. If you are under one part of the Law you
are under the whole Law, but we are living in the
dispensation of Grace, not Law. When Christ returns we may
return to Saturday, but not until then.
I do not recall reading in the Bible that it said a thing
about which day-- It said God worked and on the seventh day
- By our calendar the work week begins
on Mondays , so that would make the Sabbath on Sundays
Regardless we should worship God every day and thank Him for
all His many Blessings - Most people worship on Sundays ,
But handicapped and shuts in worship about ever day and on
days that a church will bring services to them In Christ
The Sabbath is a command of God from the Law of Moses and it
is good and right that you keep it. But as Christians we are
not under this law, we are under grace. To keep the holy day
is good to God, to keep Sunday is good to God. In short Both
are acceptable. The law did not pass away, but the covenant
was not ours but the Jews, we are under the shadow of Grace.

It is Sunday! Genesis 2:2-3 says........... By the seventh
day God had finished the work He had been doing; so on the
seventh day He rested from all His work. And God blessed the
seventh day and made it holy, because on it He rested from
all the work of creating that He had done....... May All Be
BLESSINGS TO YOU! DeeDee
I cannot give a full detail of answer
regarding that question, but i will try to be brief. Sunday
has never been a day of worship "according to the bible".
God has created everything in six days and he created the
Sabbath, eg. Day of rest, on the seventh day. That day was
created in the beginning of the world, before he wrote it as
fourth commandment, he created before the Jews nation
(people said it was for the Jews). Everybody, all the
prophets observed that day, Jesus observed that day Luke
4:16, his disciples observed it acts 17:2. Jesus even
said, I am the master of the Sabbath.
If you asked me, how do we know that it's Sunday the day of
the worship, let ask the bible. Jesus died on Friday, which
the bible call day of preparation, Luke 23: 52-54. on
Saturday, Jesus was still in he tomb, to prove that even
dead, he respected that particular day of worship, or day of
rest. Now look at Luke 23: 55-56 and Luke 24:1.
Jesus was raised the first day of the week according to the
scriptures, what is the first day? Which day is the Easter?
Sunday, which day is the then seventh day? Saturday. Yes God
has never changed his commandment, never, even if his son
raised on Sunday, it doesn't mean that it was a day of
worship. Jesus said he came to accomplish the law not
to abolish it, he said any letter won't be removed from that
commandments, until the earth and everything has gone. Some
people said that the 10 commandments were nailed on the
cross, it is not true. Can I steal today? Commit adultery,
worship a snake?
Where comes from the worship of Sunday?
It is a roman catholic invention, I am sorry but it's true.
Look at these statements: " Sunday is a catholic
institution, and its claims to observance can defended only
on Catholics principles.. from beginning to end of scripture
there is not a single passage that warrants the transfer of
weekly public worship from last day of the week to the
first" catholic press, Sydney, Australia, august, 1900
"it's well to remind the Presbyterians, Baptists,
Methodists, ans all other Christians, that the bible does
not support them anywhere in their observance of Sunday.
Sunday is an institution of the roman catholic church, and
those who observe the day observe a commandment of the
catholic church". Priest Brady, in an an address, reported
in the Elizabeth, NJ "news" of march 18, 1903.
My dear friends, Jesus said in Mark 7: 7-9, that all these
things are commandments of men.
It's not that today the majority are worship on Sunday that
it's the will of God, or that God appreciate it. He knew
that these things will happen, that's why he said in the
fourth commandment: remember the seventh day to keep holy.
Tell me, didn't we forget? Oh Yes, may God bless you.
It's a no brainer for me. The biblical Sabbath is and
always will be Saturday. Constantine changed it to
Sunday to disassociate the Jews whom he hated. The
Christian world will soon come to the true Shabbat and rid
of the pagan observenses as well. In His glorious love,
I would like to answer this question. I believe Saturday is
the day the Lord made for the Sabbath day. It is in the
Bible and it is one of the commandments. Sunday was made a
day to worship by King Constantine Sunday started with the
sun worship. The Sabbath started from the creation, if you
read History you will see how Sunday came to be the worship
day for this world. I feel that we should all obey God and
follow all Of His commandments as he says if you love me
keep my commandments. Sabbath is the seal of the 10
commandments The seal of God. The Spirit of God is the
Spirit of truth. When you know the truth you will obey God
including His commandments and the Sabbath which is Gods
law, You cannot be saved by the Sabbath but we are saved by
Grace but in response to that Grace given to us we obey Gods
law. God Bless
I want to take a few minutes to answer this question. Are we
talking about - which one is the acceptable Biblical day of
worship? What does the Bible tell us? In the book of Genesis
(after the creation week of six days - the Lord rested on
the seventh day - which is the Sabbath - He hallowed it (and
or sanctified it). In this case, I believe its not the
question of what is acceptable but which day did the Lord
God sanctify and honor as a day of worship. We can worship
God any day of our lives - Sunday through Saturday but the
day that God has set aside for worship (from rest from our
worldly chores) is the Seventh-day Sabbath. Read through
Genesis and come up to Ex. 20:8. I believe that if the Lord
Jesus is our example as Christians in the last day, then we
should do what the Lord has called upon us to do as
individuals and as brethren - not what is acceptable in the
eyes of man!! God bless
There is no where in the bible that states Sunday is the day
of worship all it says is that God rested on the 7th day.
And going by our calendar Sunday is the beginning of a new
week so the 7th day that God rested and we should worship is
on Saturday. If you could answer this I would appreciate it.
Can anyone give me a Bible text that says that the Sabbath
(worshipping God on Saturday) was changed to Sunday? I
couldn't find any.
Sunday or Saturday--Which one is the acceptable Biblical day
We should keep Saturday because the Bible tells us which day
to keep. In Ex 20:8-11
8 "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days you
shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is
the Sabbath of the LORD your God. In it you shall do no
work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male
servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your
stranger who is within your gates. 11 For in six days the
LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that
is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the LORD
blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it. NKJV
It was the Ceremonial Law that was nailed to the cross at
the time of Jesus Death and not the Ten Commandments.
I believe the biblical day of worship is Saturday. Jewish
custom is to celebrate Sabbath or Shabbat beginning Friday
at sundown until Saturday at sundown. We call Saturday the
sixth day but isn't it really the seventh day in our
calendar? Sunday is the first day of the week.
