First of all I would like to make it VERY clear that I wasn't mad at or arguing with anyone and I'm not sure why people got that impression. I was posting the comments because I think this is a very important topic. I'm very interested in it and I wanted to show all of the different opinions. Anyone who knows me should know well enough than to think that I would get mad over doctrinal/theological differences of opinion. If I had an issue with something then I would not post it :)
I hope we can all examine this and go to the Word and before the Lord with our concerns.
Laura has left a new comment on your post "The Sabbath Breaker prt. 2":
"I think it's important not to take too lightly any of the 10 commandments...I think that there's a good reason that they were written in stone.Certainly Jesus didn't intend for us to become legalistic and put the law above practicalities, The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sake of the Sabbath. I don't think that anyone would argue against doctors or police officers working on the Sabbath.However, I think as Christians, we can often become swayed by society and change our interpretation of the bible because of it. When I was a kid...before all you young whippersnappers were born hahaha...When the stores started to open on Sundays, there was an outcry from all of the Christians in Terrace. Now, you can find half the church buying their groceries on a Sunday. So, what happened? Had people been starving because they were unable to get groceries on Sunday? Was this a necessary change?I completely agree with John 13:34 'A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you', but I feel that by supporting things like shopping or going to a restaurant on the Sabbath that I'm not showing love to those who are required to work rather than being able to spend time with their families. If I'm running around and cleaning my house on that day, I'm depriving my husband and children of my companionship. Although I constantly fall short of the letter of the law, I can't ignore the words of Jesus in Matthew 5:19 "Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven..." A slight change in society can affect Christians so quickly too. If Christians have honoured the Sabbath from the time of Christ until a mere 30 years ago, I don't think I'd want to make the change too lightly or to teach my children to either. I'm glad that you brought it up, it's a good subject to think about.
Titus 3:4-"But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us,not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. This is a trustworthy saying. And I want you to stress these things, so that those who have trusted in God may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good. These things are excellent and profitable for everyone.
But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless!!"
