Go To Church On Sabbath, Is That A Rule?

Christians should go to church on Sabbath.


Many would say, “It is one of the Ten Commandments!” (Ex 20:8) But, that is a weak reason since many argue that Jesus fulfilled all the Laws and removed the requirements of the Law from us. (Eph 2:15 Col 2:14 Mt 5:17 Rom 3:28 6:14) (I don’t believe <ba>)

  • Have we been numbed and dumbed-down by our religious traditions?
  • Is there a rest that we are missing out on all because of our tradition that says – ‘Christians should go to church’?
  • Go ahead! Ask questions! It’s okay to question the norm because there is way more beyond established religious boundaries! Fullness is waiting.
  • The early Church (Acts 3) met daily in homes… We fill up an entire day doing Church activities. Is this what God taught in the 4th Commandment?
