Should Modern Christians Keep The Sabbath?

Contents

Background and Context of Debate:

In Judaism, Saturday is kept holy as the Sabbath day, on which believers must do no work. Whether this applies to Christians is disputed. The Seventh-Day Adventist Church holds that the Jewish Sabbath is still in effect, Roman Catholics hold that it has been moved to Sunday, while others hold it has been abolished completely.

Are Christians Required To Keep a Sabbath?

Yes

It is one of the Christian ten commandments.

In the Bible, Moses collects ten commandments (refer to Exodus chapter 20). These are supposed to be kept by Christians. One of these commandments is to never work on the sabbath (which for Christians is Sunday but for other relligions Saturday). The ten commandment for Christians is filled with the most important rules to keep and ignoring the sabbath rule is breaking the fourth commandment.




No

In the Bible, both Jesus and Paul say the sabbath is not required to be kept.

Paul says not to let any man judge you in your observance of Sabbath days. (see Col. 2:16). He also says that these are a shadow of things to come, but the reality is Christ. Furthermore, in Matthew 15:19, Jesus makes a list of the things which defile a man, lining up with nine of the Ten Commandments, but not the Sabbath.




If so, has the Sabbath legitimately been changed?
