Sunday or Saturday - which one is the acceptable Biblical day of worship?


Pro Sunday

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 converted-

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 again!

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.

Tells us in the Bible not to get caught up in what day is Holy.............To some it might be Saturday and to others, Sunday.

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 Jesus

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 Blessed

BLESSINGS TO YOU! DeeDee

Pro Saturday

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. God Bless

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 of worship?

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.
