[Gen 1-2 When god finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. And God Blessed it and made it holy.] I think the only reason man switched to Sunday was because Jesus rose from the dead, but your missing the real message. He died for our sins so we could have a chance to be free as well, and he rested on the Sabbath just like God did when he created the earth. I'm not sure where man lost their way but its not hard to understand when you look it up for yourselves.

@topic,

Don't let the observance of days be the definitive substance of your faith in Christ.

"But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage? Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years. I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain." (Gal. 4:9-11).

We were never asked as a specific command to go to Church on any specific day. It would seem that Christians mostly recognized the first day of the week as bearing a special significance in their activities (I Cor. 16:2). However, liberty is given in the Body of Christ concerning what days we choose to regard as special to the Lord --

"One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks." (Rom. 14:5 & 6).

What is more important to the Christian is not the day; rather, it is the Lord Himself and our worship and service to Him that matter more.

Church is not something you "go to", church is something "you are". Wherever the called out ones gather or meet is church. So if two (or three) happen to meet at a bus stop, the gym or at the supermarked and exhortation, edification and comforting (worship even!) take place, guess what? church just happened.

Acts 2:46 - So continuing daily[/b] with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart,

Acts 2:47 - praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily[b] those who were being saved.

Acts 5:42 - And daily[/b] in the temple, and in every house, they did not cease teaching and preaching Jesus as the Christ.

Acts 16:5 - So the churches were strengthened in the faith, and increased in number daily[b].

Church is everday and everywhere. It's without walls.

Be Church!

God bless

See, its not the going to church that is really the matter but what you do in the church. It's about worshipping God and that should be done at all times. Don't forget that we are the temple of the living God.

Sunday was a day set aside for the worship of the Sun in many places. Early missionaries discovered that "converted" people still worshipped the Sun on Sundays. By changing the sabbath to Sunday, instead of worshipping the Sun, they worshipped God.

A Roman Festival was also celebrated on December 25. Some strange customs from the pagan festival have been passed down -- like burning of a Yule Log and the Christmas tree.

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: Which are a shadow of things to come, Colossians 2:16-17

With the above Biblical Chapter/Verses, you can either worship God on Sunday or Saturday. I choose Sunday over Saturday though. If anybody argues with you on your mode of worship, be quick to quote Colossians 2: 16-17

Jesus Christ, while He was in the world, did not set any day aside for worship as He was seen daily doing His father's work. But He kept the Sabbath day (Saturday) holy as instructed by God Himself. Now, when He died, He resurrected on Sunday, the reason why Christians go to church on Sundays to worship God. But the Sabbath day is a holy day unto the Lord God. If Jesus had resurrected on this day, the Sabbath day, Saturday, would have been a better day to go to church, even though Jesus did not leave any instruction that we must worship God on the day He resurrected.

Do not make a problem out of something not meant to be a problem. The sabbath was created for man not man for the sabbath. A special day set asside for Jesus is a special set asside for Jesus. You think God on judgement day will care whether you said a prayer on a saterday instead of sunday. If there was a right day, the church would not open on saterdaY

Basically, i feel the right day to go to church is on Sunday. The reason why this is so because,Jesus christ resurrected on a sunday.

See, it depends on your definition of the word sabbath because it is all from Ex 20. 'rememberthe sabbth day to keep it holy'. Define the sabbath day you are free.
