The origin of the Sabbath
The Sabbath goes all of the way back to creation, God created for six days and on the seventh day He rested. (Genesis 2:2-3) As a gift he gave man the commandment to remember the Sabbath and keep it holy by entering into rest. (Mark 2:27), (Exodus 20:8-11).
So why is church on Sunday?
There has been much debate on whether Christians should worship on Saturday or Sunday. This website wasn't made to spark debates and arguments. The truth is that we're free to worship on any day of the week and hopefully you can experience the joy of worshiping God every chance you get.
History teaches that the days of the week were derived from various names of pagan gods. For instance Sunday was named after the Sun god, Monday was named after the moon goddess, Tuesday was named after the god Tyr, Wednesday was named after the god Odin, Thursday was named after the god Thor, Friday was named after the goddess Frigga, and Saturday was named after the god Saturn.
Biblically, God named the days after numbers 1-6 and called the seventh day Sabbath. (Exodus 20:11) - " (Gen 2:2, 3; Ex 31:17) For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day and made it holy.
Traditions of Sunday worship originated through the mixing of pagan ideology into the Christian faith. Pagans worshiped the earthly sun as their god or deity and Sunday was designated for honoring the sun.
So what about the Sabbath in our generation?
The Sabbath was not designed for Jews or for Seventh Day Adventist. The Sabbath was created for mankind. (Mark 2:27) It was never Biblically taken away. So it is still in effect today. There is a blessing in observing the Sabbath (Isa 56:2) and you can tap into that blessing by experiencing the Sabbath for yourself!
