    Correct you have no scripture for this tradition because there is no scripture simple as that. As shown earlier through the scriptures the only strawman is those making a trying to say God's 4th commandment is abolished or not a requirement of Christian to obey it. If you believe that there is no scripture that says God's 4th commandment has been abolished and we are now commanded to keep Sunday as a Holy day then you are correct and you are accountable to God for what you know.

    However, that is what you know as a single person. What you believe does not represent all Christianity that go to church on Sunday. Many think that God's 10 commandments including God's 4th commandment Sabbath has been abolished or are no longer a requirement for Christianity. Just look at all those in this thread for example arguing ACTS 15 to try and teach God's 10 commandments are not a requirement for Gentile believer? This alone should show you that many do not believe the same as you do brother.

    Your making broard general claims for all of those who go to Church on Sunday that simply is not true. In my experience sharing God's WORD throughout my time there are many who genuinely teach and think God's 4th commandment is not binding on Christians or is abolished so your claims here are simply not true. If you understand that there is no scripture to say God's 4th commandment has been abolsihed and we are now commanded to keep Sunday as a Holy day than you are resonsible to God alone for what you know.

    I am not making an argument against someone but simply providing the word of GOD in MATTHEW 15:3-9 and asking the questions where is the scripture for this tradition that has lead many to break God's 4th commandment. Your trying to make an argument against the OP and God's WORD that is not true.

    It those teaching against God's 4th commandment that are making strawman arguments against God's Word. God's 4th commandment which is one of Gods 10 Commandments give us the KNOWLEDGE of what SIN is when broken *ROMANS 3:4; ROMANS 7:7; 1 JOHN 3:4. JAMES says that if we break any one of God's 10 commandments we stand guilty before God of SIN

    God's WORD says all those who CONTINUE in KNOWN UNREPENTANT SIN will not enter into the KINGDOM of HEAVEN *HEBREWS 10:26-27 because they reject the gift of God's dear son *ROMANS 6:23. OBEDIENCE to God's LAW is not how we are saved it is the FRUIT of God's work in us as we BELIEVE and FOLLOW his WORD. If our faith has no fruit it is dead *JAMES 2:18-20; 26 and our tree will be cast down and thrown into the fire *MATTHEW 3:10; 7:19-20; 13:49-50.

    If you do not have scripture for your position then we should consider carefully why follow man made traditions over the WORD of GOD? Only God's WORD is true and we should BELIEVE and FOLLOW it. *ROMANS 3:4

    God bless.

    Nope. No it does not. The ANNUAL FEASTS were only held once a year while God's SEVENTH DAY SABBATH of God's 4th Commandment is EVERY WEEK.

    Not at all brother. It is God's WORD that says all those who CONTINUE in known UNREPENTANT SIN will not enter the KINGDOM of HEAVEN *HEBREWS 10:26-27 because they reject the gift of God's dear son *ROMANS 6:23. God's 10 commandment in the NEW COVENANT give us the KNOWLEDGE of GOOD and EVIL; SIN and RIGHTEOUSNESS *ROMANS 3:20; ROMANS 7:7; 1 JOHN 3:4. God's WORD says that if we break any one of God's 10 Commandments we stand guitly before God or sin *JAMES 2:10-11; ROMANS 3:19. God's 4th commandment is one of God's 10 commandments that give us the knowledge of what SIN is when broken *ROMANS 3:20. OBEDIENCE to God's LAW is not how we are saved it is the FRUIT of God's work in us as we BELIEVE and FOLLOW his WORD. If our faith has no fruit it is dead *JAMES 2:18-20; 26 and our tree will be cast down and thrown into the fire *MATTHEW 3:10; 7:19-20; 13:49-50.

    All of God's WORD is true and we should BELIEVE and FOLLOW it *ROMANS 3:4

    Is this a lie or true?

    1 JOHN 2:1-4
    [1], My little children, these things write I to you, that you sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
    [2], And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for our's only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
    [3], And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
    [4], He that said, I know him, and keeps not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

    Brother as posted to you personally in other threads I only post references to ROMANS 3:4 to state what it says and that is only God's WORD is true and our own words do not matter. If you take it personally then it is between you and God. That is not the intent of my providing and sharing God's Word. Thanks for your cult claim. Seems I am in good company with JESUS and the Apostles where according to God's WORD I have been blessed. *Matthew 5:11; JOHN 15:17-23; MATTHEW 10:22-25

    GOD'S WORD vs TRADITIONS OF MEN?

    It is amazing how those that do not have God's WORD to supoport their traditions that break the commandments of God accuse those who have God's WORD of things that are not true.

    The religious teachers in the days of Jesus said that he had a devil and his followers were a cult this was also independently verifiable in the days of Jesus and the Apostles. Just ask the Jews who hung Jesus on the cross (John 7:20; John 8:48; 52; Matt 10:25 12:24; Acts 28:22).

    This could be said of all those who followed Jesus throughout time even before Jesus the religious teachers of the day killed the prophets sent to them by God to share God's WORD (Luke 11:47; Matt 23:31)

    Stephen was stoned to death it was independently verified that he was blaspheming because no one could argue with the scriptures that he was presenting (Acts 6:8-15).

    Paul, Peter and most of the Apostles were also executed because it was independently verified by the religious teachers of the day that they could not respond to God's WORD they were sharing with them to help them return to God.

    Not to mention all those of the reformation and the birth of Protestantism and the inquisition of the Roman Catholic Church which executed millions of God's people because it was independently verified by the Roman Catholic Church that they were all heretics and should be burned at the stake.

    Now today many call heretic or cult because it is independently verified because you cannot respond to the scriptures that disagree with their Catholic traditions which has led many to break God's Commandments?

    ONLY God's WORD is true and many do not have it to support their traditions that breaks the commandments of God. The WORD of God is sent to help us have a closer walk with God but many reject God's WORD in order to follow the traditions of the fathers.

    Jesus and Paul spoke correctly quoting Isaiah;

    Well spoke the Holy Spirit by Isaiah the prophet unto our fathers, Saying, Go unto this people, and say, Hearing you shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing you shall see, and not perceive: For the heart of this people is stubborn, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.


    Something to think about who do we BELIEVE and FOLLOW? The teachings and traditions of men that break the Commandments of God or the WORD of GOD. Jesus says those who follow man made traditions that break God's Commandments are not following him...

    MATTHEW 15:2-9 [2], Why do your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread. [3], But he answered and said to them, Why do you also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? [4], For God commanded, saying, Honor your father and mother: and, He that curses father or mother, let him die the death. [5], But you say, Whoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatever you might be profited by me; [6], And honor not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have you made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. [7], You hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, [8], This people draws near to me with their mouth, and honors me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. [9], But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

    It is very clear according to Jesus if we follow the teachings and traditions of men that break the Commandments of GOD we are not following God.

    In times of ignorance God winks at but now ,<when a KNOWLEDGE of the truth has come> calls all men everywhere to REPENT (FOLLOW) (Acts 17:30-31).

    .......................

    SIN is the breaking of God's Commandments (James 2:9-11; Romans 7:7; 1 John 3:4)
    Those who CONTINUE in UNREPENTANT SIN will NOT enter into the KINGDOM of HEAVEN.

    .......................

    God's 4th commandment is one of the ten (Exodus 20:8-11) If we knowingly break it when God asks us not to we stand guilty before God of committing sin (James 2:8-12). If we do not seek him in repentance and forgiveness we are in danger of the Judgement (Hebrews 10:26-27)

    Sunday worship is a tradition and teaching of man that has led many to break the commandments of God. Jesus says that if we follow the traditions of man that break the commandments of God we are not following God (Matthew 15:3-9)

    There is not one scripture in all of God's Word that says that God's 4th Commandment is now ABOLISHED and we are now commanded to KEEP Sunday as a Holy day.

    Who should we follow the teachings and traditions of men or the Word of God? Who should we believe the Words of men or the Word of God?

    Only God's WORD is true brother *ROMANS 3:4 and you are providing none. Where is the scripture that says God's 4th Commandment has been abolished and we are now commanded to keep Sunday as a Holy day?

    It is JESUS who says that all those who knowingly follow the teachings and tradtitions of men are not following God not me *MATTHEW 15:3-9.

    God's 4th commandment is one of God's 10 commandments that give us the knowledge of what SIN is when broken *ROMANS 3:20.

    It is God's WORD that says that SIN is the transgression or breaking of anyone of God's 10 commandments not me brother *1 JOHN 3:4; JAMES 2:10-11.

    It is God's WORD that says all those who CONTINUE in known UNREPENTANT SIN will not enter the KINGDOM of HEAVEN *HEBREWS 10:26-27 because they reject the gift of God's dear son *ROMANS 6:23.

    God's 10 commandment in the NEW COVENANT give us the KNOWLEDGE of GOOD and EVIL; SIN and RIGHTEOUSNESS *ROMANS 3:20; ROMANS 7:7; 1 JOHN 3:4. God's WORD says that if we break any one of God's 10 Commandments we stand guitly before God or sin *JAMES 2:10-11; ROMANS 3:19. OBEDIENCE to God's LAW is not how we are saved it is the FRUIT of God's work in us as we BELIEVE and FOLLOW his WORD. If our faith has no fruit it is dead *JAMES 2:18-20; 26 and our tree will be cast down and thrown into the fire *MATTHEW 3:10; 7:19-20; 13:49-50.

    Does this not concern you? Where is the scripture that says God's 4th Commandment has been abolished and we are now commanded to keep Sunday as a Holy day?

    Hope this helps.

    The scripture provided are direct references to God's 10 commandments listed as God's 10 commandments which is the KNOWLEDGE of what SIN is when broken *JAMES 2:8-12; ROMANS 7:7; ROMANS 3:20; 1 JOHN 3:4. These are the CONTEXT to the scriptures referning one or more of God's 10 commandments.

    Hello brother Kermos nice to see you again. Some comments for your consideration below.

    Indeed brother brother although the TORAH describes God's ETERNAL LAW (10 commandments they are not the law of MOSES and never have been. They are GOD'S ETERNAL law which was SPOKEN and WRITTEN with the finger of GOD and the WORK of GOD alone *EXODUS 20:1-17; EXODUS 32:16. In the OLD COVENANT the MOSIAC BOOK of the LAW provided support laws to GOD'S ETERNAL LAW (10 commandments) and provided the SHADOW laws that point to JESUS and God's plan of salvation in the NEW COVENANT. God's ETERNAL LAW (10 Commandments) have the same role they always have in both the OLD and NEW COVENANTS and that is to give us the KNOWLEDGE of GOOD and EVIL; SIN and RIGHTOUESNESS *ROMANS 3:20; ROMANS 7:7; 1 JOHN 3:4; PSALMS 119:172.

    In the OLD COVENANT the MOSAIC BOOK of the law *DEUTERONOMY 31:24-26; EXODUS 24:7 provided all the SHADOW laws for remission of sin if any of God's ETERNAL LAWS (10 commandments) were broken and other laws that were all prophetic in nature pointing to JESUS and God's plan of salvation under the NEW COVENANT (burn't offerings, sin offerings, meat and drink offerings, circumcision annual feasts...) The MOSAIC BOOK of the COVENANT *EXODUS 24:7 is not GOD'S ETERNAL LAW (10 commandments) GOD'S ETERNAL LAW is the work of God alone spoken and written with the finger of God. The MOSAIC BOOK of SHADOW laws point to JESUS and God's plan of salvation in the NEW COVENANT. God's ETERNAL LAW (10 Commandments) in the NEW COVENANT have the same role they always had and that is to give us the KNOWLEDGE of GOOD and EVIL; SIN and RIGHTOUESNESS as shown in the NEW COVENANT scriptures *ROMANS 3:20; ROMANS 7:7; 1 JOHN 3:4; JAMES 2:10-11. It is God's ETERNAL LAW that shows us that we are all SINNERS and in need of a Saviour and leads us to the CROSS of CHRIST that we might be FORGIVEN by FAITH alone! *GALATIANS 3:22-25.

    If there is no LAW then we have no KNOWLEDGE of what SIN is. If we have no KNOWLEDGE of what SIN is then we have no need of a Savior. If we ave no need of a Savior then we are still in our sins. If we are still in our sins then we are lost because we do not know the gift of God's dear son.

    JESUS says; They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick many do not know the meaning. I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance *MATTHEW 9:12-13. Without God's ETERNAL LAW how can we know the meaning? If our lamp has gone out how can we see the way when the road is dark and narrow *PROVERBS 6:23; PSALMS 119:105; PROVERBS 13:9; MATTHEW 7:14?

    Will break the response of your larger post down to sections and smaller posts.

    God bless

    ACTS 15 is referring to CIRCUMCISION in the TORAH not God's 10 commandments. As shown earlier looking at the CONTEXT of ACTS 15 the question under consideration was; IS CIRCUMCISION A REQUIREMENT OF SALVATION? *ACTS 15:1-2. This is the question being considered in ACTS 15 not wheather GOD'S ETERNAL LAW (10 commandments) are abolished for gentile believers. This is made clear in ACTS 15:2 where it is said that PAUL and BARNABUS went to JERUSALAM about this question. What question? IS CIRCUMCSION FROM THE LAW OF MOSES A REQUIREMENT FOR SALVATION *ACTS 15:1-2.

    JESUS has indeed set us free from the law of sin and death this is the good news of the gospel. The law of sin and death being referred to however is not saying that God's ETERNAL LAW (10 commandments) has been abolsihed. The law of sin and death is the law of sinful human nature and the penalty for which sin brings which is death *ROMANS 7:12-21; ROMANS 6:23. God's LAW (10 Commandments) under the NEW COVENANT give us the KNOWLEDGE of SIN when broken *ROMANS 3:20; ROMANS 7:7; 1 JOHN 3:4; JAMES 2:10-11.

    ACTS 15 as shown through the scriptures earlier verse by verse is answering the question; IS CIRCUMCISION from the MOSAIC BOOK of the LAW *DEUTERONOMY 31:24-26 A REQUIREMENT OF SALVATION.

    What you point out above only confirms what has been shared here. ACTS 15 is not discussing if God's 10 commandments are abolished which some seem to teach.

    The ACTS 15 letter to the new Gentile believers is affirming God's 10 commandments telling them not to commit idolatry and not to commit fornication and letting them know CIRCUMCISION is not a requirement for salvation.

    The reason also for this letter was that they would continue learing God's WORD every SABBATH *ACTS 15:21.

    This is also made very clear by PAUL that he is not referring to God's 10 commandments being Abolished in 1 CORINTHIANS 7 following the letter in ACTS 15.

    1 CORINTHIANS 7:19 [19] Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God.

    According to the interpretation for many of ACTS 15 PAUL is contradicting himself.

    ROMANS 3:31 [31], Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yes, we establish the law.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts brother.

    God bless

    Let's have a look at your claim by asking some simple questions here. I hope this may help the discussion brother so be patient here.

    1. What is the CONTEXT of ACTS 15 and the reason PAUL and BARNABAS when to JERUSALEM was it over CIRCUMCISION from the MOSAIC BOOK of the law *DEUTERONOMY 31:24-26 being a requirement for salvation or was ACTS 15 discussing is God's 10 Commandments still a requirement for new Chrsitians *ACTS 15:1-2.

    2. WAS God's ETERNAL LAW (10 Commandments) which was SPOKEN and WRITTEN by GOD alone on two tables of stone *EXODUS 20:1-17; EXODUS 32:16 SEPARATED in the ARK (house) of the OLD COVENANT from the MOSAIC BOOK of the COVENANT *EXODUS 24:7; DEUTERONOMY 31:26?

    3. WHY do you think GOD SEPARATED his ETERNAL LAW (10 commandments) from the MOSAIC BOOK the law *DEUTERONOMY 31:24-26; DEUTERONOMY 10:2 ?

    Now brother take an honest look at these questions and the scirptures references provided. If you can honestly answer these questions with God's WORD then you will see your claims above a simply false claims and have no basis or scripture support from God's WORD. Only provided in love and has a help brother.

    God bless.

    As shown all through the scriptures in ACTS 15 and elsewhere brother your claims here are only your words and not God's WORD. Only God's WORD is true and we should believe and FOLLOW it *ROMANS 3:4. God's ETERNAL LAW (10 commandments) in the NEW COVENANT have the same role they always had and that is to give us the KNOWLEDGE of GOOD and EVIL; SIN and RIGHTOUESNESS *ROMANS 3:4; ROMANS 7:7; 1 JOHN 3:4; JAMES 2:10-11.

    According to God's WORD in the NEW COVENANT, all those who CONTINUE in KNOWN UNREPENTANT SIN will not enter into the KINGDOM of HEAVEN *HEBREWS 10:26-27 because they reject the gift of God's dear son *ROMANS 6:23. OBEDIENCE to God's LAW is not how we are saved it is the FRUIT of God's work in us as we BELIEVE and FOLLOW his WORD. If our faith has no fruit it is dead *JAMES 2:18-20; 26 and our tree will be cast down and thrown into the fire *MATTHEW 3:10; 7:19-20; 13:49-50.

    Now back to the OP. Where in all of God's WORD does it say God's 4th commandment of the 10 Commandments that give us the knowledge of sin when broken *ROMANS 3:20 say God's 4th commandment is ABOLISHED and we are now commanded to keep SUNDAY as a HOLY DAY?

    God bless.

    The law of MOSES is not God's ETERNAL LAW (10 commandments). CIRCUMCISION is not one of the 10 commandments *ACTS 15:1-2

    Your interpretation of the scriptures here brother is in contradiction with what PAUL says elsewhere and the rest of the NEW TESTAMENT scriptures. This outcome of ACTS 15 was that CIRCUMCISION is not a requirement of SALVATION.

    Please by all means provide a scripture that says God's 10 commandments are the law of Moses? If you cannot your statement has not truth in it. Only God's WORD is true and we should believe and follow it *ROMANS 3:4

    Hello brother Washed Luminary, nice to see you again. Some comments are provided in your post for consideration.
    As posted earlier brother I have never said that God's ETERNAL LAW (10 commandments) were not a part of the OLD COVENANT. They were. The scripture references posted to you earlier were to show that Gods 10 commandments were only part of the OLD COVENANT not all of the OLD COVENANT. According to God's WORD there are two parts to the OLD COVENANT. God's ETERNAL LAW (10 commandments) that give us the KNOWLEDGE of GOOD and EVIL and the SHADOW laws from the MOSAIC BOOK of the COVENANT *EXODUS 24:7. We agree that God's 10 commandments were a part of the OLD COVENANT. Here let's add the rest of the scriptures that show that the MOSIAC BOOK of the law was also the other part of the OLD COVENANT.

    THE SHADOW LAWS OF THE MOSAIC BOOK WAS PART OF THE OLD COVEANANT

    EXODUS 24 [7], And he took the BOOK OF THE COVENANT, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the LORD has said will we do, and be obedient.

    DEUTERONOMY 29 [21], And the LORD shall separate him to evil out of all the tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the COVENANT THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK OF THE LAW.

    DEUTERONOMY 31 [26], Take this BOOK OF THE LAW, and put it in the SIDE OF THE ARK OF THE COVENANT of the LORD your God, that it may be there for a witness against you.

    2 KINGS 23 [2], And the king went up into the house of the LORD, and all the men of Judah and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem with him, and the priests, and the prophets, and all the people, both small and great: and HE READ IN THEIR EARS ALL THE WORDS OF THE BOOK OF THE COVENANT which was found in the house of the LORD.

    2 KINGS 23 [3], And the king stood by a pillar, and made a covenant before the LORD, to walk after the LORD, and to keep his commandments and his testimonies and his statutes with all their heart and all their soul, TO PERFORM THE WORDS OF THIS COVENANT THAT WERE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK. And all the people stood to the covenant.

    2 KINGS 23 [21], And the king commanded all the people, saying, KEEP THE PASSOVER OF THE LORD your God, AS IT IS WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF THIS COVENANT.

    2 CHRONICLES 34 [30], And the king went up into the house of the LORD, and all the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the priests, and the Levites, and all the people, great and small: and HE READ IN THEIR EARS ALL THE WORDS OF THE BOOK OF THE COVENANT that was found in the house of the LORD.

    2 CHRONICLES 34 [31] And the king stood in his place, and made a covenant before the LORD, to walk after the LORD, and to keep his commandments, and his testimonies, and his statutes, with all his heart, and with all his soul, TO PERFORM THE WORDS OF THE COVENANT WHICH ARE WRITTEN IN THE BOOK.

    .................

    CONCLUSION: The OLD COVENANT was made up of two sets of laws which included 1. GOD'S ETERNAL LAW (10 Commandments) and 2. The MOSAIC SHADOW laws from the MOSAIC BOOK of the COVENANT.

    Both these sets of LAWS had very different PURPOSES under the OLD Covenant.

    1. GOD'S ETERNAL LAW (10 Commandments) where to provide a KNOWLEDGE of SIN and RIGHTEOUSNESS.

    2. The MOSAIC SHADOW laws from the BOOK OF THE COVENANT of laws and ORDINANCES which included the CIVIL, CEREMONIAL and ECCLESIASTICAL laws were laws for the REMISSION or FORGIVENESS of sin which included the Leviticial PRIESTHOOD and ORDINACES for sin offerings for the SNACTUARY SERVICE. PRIESTHOOD, SACRIFICAL SIN OFFERINGS for FORGIVENESS OF SIN.

    God bless.

    Absolutely brother. The ARK (house) of the COVENANT held God's COVENANT with God's people. Now what did the ARK of the covenant house or contain?

    DEUTERONOMY 10:5 [5] And I turned myself and came down from the mount, and put the tables in the ark which I had made; and there they are, as the LORD commanded me.

    Yep there is the 10 Commandments housed in the ARK of the COVENANT.

    DEUTERONOMY 31:26 [26] Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, that it may be there for a witness against you.

    EXODUS 24:7 [7] And he took the BOOK OF THE COVENANT, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the LORD has said will we do, and be obedient.

    The ARK of the covenant contained both God's ETERNAL LAW (10 Commandments) and the SHADOW laws from the MOSAIC BOOK of the covenant.

    God bless

    GOD'S SABBATH is a sign that God's people worship and follow the only true God of creation and it is God who santifies them. However here you are mixing up the SHADOW signs of the MOSAIC BOOK of the COVENANT in CIRCUMCISION that points to a NEW HEART by FAITH (DEUTERONOMY 30:6; JEREMIAH 4:4; DEUTERONOMY 10:16; ROMANS 2:25-29; 1 CORINTHIANS 7:19; HEBREWS 8:10) in the NEW COVENANT with God's ETERNAL LAW (10 commandments) and God's 4th Commandment that give us the KNOWLEDGE of what SIN is when broken under the NEW COVENANT *ROMANS 3:20; ROMANS 7:7; 1 JOHN 3:4; JAMES 2:10-11.

    GALATIANS 3 brother is not saying God's ETERNAL LAW (10 commandments) is ABOLSIHED it is saying that GOD'S LAW gives us the KNOWLEDGE of what SIN is which is shown in the scriptures a little further in GALATIANS 3:22-25 to lead us to CHRIST (the Word - seed) so that we might be FORGIVEN by FAITH in his WORD. This is the purpose of God's LAW to show us that we are all SINNERS in need of God's salvation and to lead us to CHRIST that we might be FORGIVEN by FAITH in his WORD.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts brother

    God bless.

    Hello brother NeedyFollower, nice to meet you and thanks for sharing your thoughts.
    I like your name title. I think I am also a needy follower. I can do nothing without JESUS.
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts here. It seems that we have a similar view of History in some of the examples you outline above. However, where does it say as you have claimed above in God's WORD that Sunday worship is a commandment of God? How do you get Sunday out of the scripture this is the day that the Lord has made?

    According to God's WORD brother We are saved by GRACE through faith and not of ourselves it is a gift of God *EPHESIANS 2:8. OBEDIENCE to God's LAW is not how we are saved it is the FRUIT of God's work in us as we BELIEVE and FOLLOW his WORD.

    God's WORD however says that God's 4th commandment is one of God's 10 commandments that give us the KNOWLEDGE of GOOD and EVIL; SIN and RIGHTEOUSNESS *ROMANS 3:20; ROMANS 7:7; 1 JOHN 3:4; PSALMS 119:172. According to God's WORD, ALL those who CONTINUE in KNOWN UNREPENTANT SIN will not enter into the KINGDOM of HEAVEN *HEBREWS 10:26-27 because they reject the gift of God's dear son *ROMANS 6:23. OBEDIENCE to God's LAW is not how we are saved it is the FRUIT of God's work in us as we BELIEVE and FOLLOW his WORD *PHILIPPIANS 2:13. If our faith has no fruit it is dead *JAMES 2:18-20; 26 and our tree will be cast down and thrown into the fire *MATTHEW 3:10; 7:19-20; 13:49-50.

    JESUS says all those who KNOWINGLY follow the teachings and traditions of men that break the commandments of God are not following God *MATTHEW 15:3-9.

    I personally believe God has his people in ALL Churches and is calling them out to worship according to his WORD in Spirit and in TRUTH *JOHN 10:16; JOHN 4:21-24; REVELATION 18:1:4.

    Back to the OP. Where in God's WORD does it say that God's 4th commandment is now ABOLISHED and we are NOW COMMANDED to keep SUNDAY as a HOLY DAY?

    Who should we BELIEVE and FOLLOW, the teachings and traditions of men that break the Commandments of God or the WORD of GOD?

    God's Sheep hear his Voice (the WORD).

    God bless.
