    Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. Indeed I, Paul, say to you that if you become circumcised, Christ will profit you nothing. And I testify again to every man who becomes circumcised that he is a debtor to keep the whole law. You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.

    (Galatians 5:1-4)

    The above scripture carries a message that is true; everybody who seeks to be justified by obeying the law has fallen from grace. This applies just as much to the one who seeks to gain God's favour by observing the 7th day as Sabbath in the belief that by so doing he/she shows themselves to be loyal followers of God and among those who "keep the commandments". One cannot be justified by works of the law.

    Someone here is saying you are justified by keeping the Sabbath?

    Guess I have been sleeping through it.

    Possibly you have.

    Let's see if anybody in any post on GT says one must keep 7th day sabbath to be acceptable to God, to remain loyal to him, to be among those who do not receive the mark of the beast.

    I completely disagree with the OP; keeping the Sabbath does not alienate anyone from the LORD.

    Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

    This can go both ways.:thumbsup:

    If we ignore that one set of standards is inside the Church and one set of standards is outside the Church then yeah I guess we could see it that way. However, it wouldn't a Christian truth.

    The OP is correct.

    God be gracious to me a sinner.

    That's cute. I've never heard that one before.

    I said 'The Church', as in the one Holy catholic and Apostolic Church.

    God be gracious to me a sinner.

    Matthew 5:18-19

    King James Version (KJV)

    18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
    19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

    one man keeps the Sabbath and no man knows it, another keeps the sabbath and it profits him nothing.

    there are the Sabbaths of God and there are sabbaths of men. the law is a shadow and if you follow the shadow you will be a shadow, if you follow the reality then you are a son and not a slave. the slave will fade away but the son will always be, and so I will not grasp onto that which fades away for it is vain!

    but some people put confidence in the flesh, and circumcise their flesh, though it profits nothing! AH! why do you have confidence in the flesh you animal! are you spiritual or are you carnal? whom does it profit if you keep the sabbath according to the jews? go also now and circumcise yourselves if this is the yoke you want!

    I wonder if this applies also to "The Lord's Day" which is held by many as the "Christian Sabbath".
