Sunday Worship Instead of the Sabbath.

The Jewish Sabbath is Saturday, so why do Catholics and most other Christians worship on Sunday? This isn't some new idea. The first Christians did so, as is written in the Bible and other early Christian writings. But why?

Well, it's because Jesus rose from the dead on that day. It's the beginning of the new creation. The early Christians compared the issue with other things in the Mosaic law, such as circumcision.

Read all about it, along with quotes from the early Church, at Catholic Answers in this article about Sunday Worship.

And after you read that article you can "Like" it on Facebook so all of your friends will know. LOL What a wonderful weird world we live in.
I have a cat. I have a bed. I have a computer. But none of these are mine.


Side Note: A few Protestant denominations worship on Saturday. But this idea came about much later in Christian history. For instance, the Seventh Day Adventists formed in the middle of the 19th century.

  1. No man has the right to change ANY of Gods commandments. Not even the 4th commandment that states that we should keep the Sabbath day holy. Also God doesn't contradict himself. Think about that.

  2. Amen to that, Nathaly. And God in His wisdom sent His son to fulfill the law and make a new covenant with us. This is why we are no longer bound by the old laws about food and circumcision, but we have new laws, such as needing to eat his body and confess our sins. And of course the natural laws remain, such as not murdering and stealing.

    Passages of Scripture such as Acts 20:7, 1 Corinthians 16:2, Colossians 2:16-17, and Revelation 1:10 indicate that, even during New Testament times, the Sabbath is no longer binding and that Christians are to worship on the Lord’s day, Sunday, instead. But click on that link I put in the post. It's very helpful.

    Thank thank you for visiting my blog. God bless! :)
