Your Sabbath Questions Answered

Can’t we keep holy any day of the week?
Upon tables of stone God wrote the great, unchanging law of the ages. Every word was serious and meaningful. Not one line was ambiguous or mysterious. Christians and non-Christians, educated and uneducated, have no problem understanding the simple, clear words of the Ten Commandments. God meant what He said and said what He meant.

Most of the ten begin with the same words: "You shall not," but right in the heart of the law, we find the fourth commandment introduced with the word "Remember." Why is this one different? God was commanding His people to call something to memory that existed but had been forgotten. Genesis describes the origin of the Sabbath ...
Are we still under the law?
This question - Are we still under the law? - is often asked in an effort to diminish the law of God in the life of the Christian. It is said, "Since we are not under law but under grace, we do not need to keep the Ten Commandments any longer."

But is this a valid point?

The Bible certainly does say that we are not under law, but does that imply that we are free from the obligation to obey it? The passage is found in Romans 6:14, 15: "Sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace."

Here is the Old Testament text from which this common question arises: "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 ox, nor your donkey, nor any of your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates, that your male servant and your female servant may rest as well as you. And remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and the LORD your God brought you out from there by a mighty hand and an outstretched arm; therefore the LORD your God commanded you to keep the Sabbath day" (Deuteronomy 5:14, 15).

The key to understanding this passage as it relates to Sabbath keeping ...

In Exodus 31:14 we read that Sabbath violators were to be stoned to death. Do you believe the same penalty should be enforced today? If you say that the penalty feature of the Sabbath law is done away, then you have really declared the Sabbath abolished, for a law has no force if there is no penalty provided for its violation. Again, in Exodus 35:3 we read that no fires were to be kindled on the Sabbath. If you believe the Sabbath law is still in force, why do you kindle fires on that day?
