The purpose of this blog is to provide insights from the Christian perspective. It exists to present the elementary teachings of the Glorious Gospel through the preaching of sound doctrine, providing biblical exegesis, and by conducting apologetics. The Apostle Paul gave the following exhortation, "...that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another."

Evidence Christians Are Not To Observe The Sabbath
The Inherent Implications Of A New Covenant Prove That Christians Are Not Supposed To Observe The Sabbath:
-"When He said, “A new covenant,” He has made the first obsolete. But whatever is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to disappear. Now even the first covenant had regulations of divine worship and the earthly sanctuary. For there was a tabernacle prepared, the outer one, in which were the lampstand and the table and the sacred bread; this is called the holy place. Behind the second veil there was a tabernacle which is called the Holy of Holies, having a golden altar of incense and the ark of the covenant covered on all sides with gold, in which was a golden jar holding the manna, and Aaron’s rod which budded, and the tables of the covenant." (Hebrews 8:13-9:4)
The New Testament never commands Christians to observe the Sabbath. In fact, neither Jesus nor the apostles warned against failure to observe this Jewish holiday. Nowhere does the Old Testament even condemn Gentiles for not observing Saturday.
