    As far as I know, Baptist's do not teach the lunar Sabbath theory and Judaism itself fully disagrees with you. There is no scriptural, historical or any factual basis of it...in Judaism, the new moon was used each month for Rosh Chodesh but not for the weekly Shabbat which was on a 7 day cycle.

    There is evidence for the idea that it is a floating Sabbath:

    Lev 23:23 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
    Lev 23:24 “Speak to the people of Israel, saying,
    In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall observe a day of solemn rest, a memorial proclaimed with blast of trumpets, a holy convocation.
    Lev 23:25 You shall not do any ordinary work, and you shall present a food offering to the LORD.”



    Lev 23:26 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
    Lev 23:27 “Now on the tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement. It shall be for you a time of holy convocation, and you shall afflict yourselves and present a food offering to the LORD.
    Lev 23:28 And you shall not do any work on that very day, for it is a Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before the LORD your God.
    Lev 23:29 For whoever is not afflicted on that very day shall be cut off from his people.
    Lev 23:30 And whoever does any work on that very day, that person I will destroy from among his people.
    Lev 23:31 You shall not do any work. It is a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwelling places.



    Both the trumpets and the Day of Atonement were days of solemn rest. One was on the first of the month. One was on the tenth of the month. They cannot both be weekly Sabbaths.

    Both those days are complete "rests", no work of any kind to be done regardless of what day of the week they fall. These days are referred to as annual Sabbaths. The weekly Sabbath is not set by the day on which those annual Sabbaths fall. Some years you will have two consecutive days where no work is allowed when an annual Sabbath falls just prior or just after the weekly Sabbath. Some years they will coincide.

    Yes, that was the point. They cannot be arranged to fall on weekly Sabbaths because they are not 7 days apart. They are annual sabbaths, and not keyed to the weekly.

    Most churches pick Sunday because people tend to have that as free time. I doubt many do it to follow the RC Church. It's simply being practical.

    Probably, but at the same time the RCC sees it as a sign that we recognize their authority.

    If you don't want to discuss it, then that's okay. No hard feelings. Naturally, I won't be convinced by your lack of effort, but I'm not of the opinion that every hill is worth dying on.

    I'd say you're both knowledgeable of traditions. Neither of you offered anything of substance. HaDerekh offered nothing but mockery and arrogance. I know why I think as I do. All I know about your position is that you believe what you do because someone told you that's what people have always believed.

    If you want to be arrogant and condescending, then I'm sure you can find a suitable forum for non-Christians, where such behavior belongs.

    I don't know why you imagine you have. Nothing you have offered has been substantiated.
    As do I.
    Then you are wrong about this too.

    There are small sects of Seventh-Day Baptists.
    Seventh Day Baptist General Conference | A Baptist Church That's A Little Different
    https://www.isdba.org/

    And TBH, William Miller, who started the Adventist movement, was a Baptist preacher in upstate New York. (The whole seventh-day part of 7th Day Adventism was a later development...)

    This thread was started as a question for Baptists and was started in the Baptist Congregational forum.

    As a number of nonBaptists responded, this thread has been moved to Denomination Specific Theology

    I was raised in a strict Saturday sabbath home, sent to SDA schools. The SDA make a big issue of Saturday sabbath keeping based on the fourth commandment. To me it isn't the day, it is the fact that we take a day to rest and worship the Lord.

    To me it is a question of what the Word of God actually says - and so far no one has a text saying it is "any one day in seven that you wish to pick".

    Even the Baptist Confession of Faith section 22 does not say that.

    The decision to make the Lord's Day the principle day of Christian worship precedes the coming of the Roman Catholic Church.

    That’s not true at all. The Roman Catholic Church did not even exist when worship began on the first day of the week to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord.

    The Roman Catholic Church as a discrete entity only emerged at some point between the 9th and 11th centuries.

    Yes, certainly the practice occurred earlier. For those wanting to understand the diversity of practice in the early church this thread in the law and sabbath section lists historic statements regarding both Sabbath and Sunday observance in early centuries:

    How common was the observance of the Jewish Sabbath among early Church Christians?

    If anybody has additional references, please post them. We can go through eventually and put them all in Chronological order to see what we can glean from it.

    Some regional patterns may also be present.
