Your Sabbath Questions Answered

Couldn't we rest on the Sabbath but worship on Sunday?

The idea of separate rest and worship days has recently started to catch on in some circles.

For instance, singer/songwriter Michael Card and singer Steven Green have said they rest on Sabbath but worship with local congregations on Sunday. However, this was not the practice of either Jesus or the apostle Paul. They didn't rest on the Sabbath and worship on Sunday (Luke 4:16; Acts 17:1, 2).

How easily we could prevent confusion if we accepted exactly what the Bible says. Paul gives his own explanation of this ...

Isn't obedience legalism?

Some teach that after the law has accomplished its purpose of pointing a sinner to Christ for forgiveness and cleansing, the commandments are no longer needed in the experience of a believer. Is that true?

A Christian will continue to depend upon the "watchdog" of the law to reveal any deviations from the true path of righteousness and to point him or her back to the cleansing cross of Jesus. This mirror of correction will most certainly be needed in the progressive growth experience of the Christian.

Law and grace do not work in competition with one another, but rather they work in perfect cooperation. The law points out our sin, and grace saves from sin. The law ...

AMERICAN CONGREGATIONALIST
The current notion that Christ and His apostles authoritatively substituted the first day for the seventh, is absolutely without any authority in the New Testament.
