When we ask the question, "Why should a Christian keep the Sabbath day?" we may get a variety of answers. Some say Sunday is a memorial
of Jesus' resurrection and so they keep Sunday. Some say Jesus nailed the Sabbath to the cross, and some say that the apostles changed the day to Sunday. Some say
that we are not under the law, but under grace, and some say that we can worship God any day of the week, and so it doesn't matter. All of these are false reasons
for not keeping the Sabbath day, and very few have ever tried to seriously study it out. In the early 1990's while attending a Sunday keeping
church, I was invited by my Pastor to attend a bible study with some Seventh Day Adventists. He asked me to prepare scriptures to defend Sunday keeping, so I did, and
I had many. A man gave a short teaching on why we should keep the Sabbath, and then it was open to discussion. We were all keen bring out our scriptures and make our
beliefs known, but nobody accepted the other's point of view. The meeting was very friendly, and when it ended everybody went home thinking that we had done our
duty. But one question arose in that meeting that persisted in my mind throughout the next week, and it was this: "You people keep nine of the ten
commandments, why don't you keep the tenth?" This question was so persistent that I decided to go to the library in the town and study it out.
I looked at many encyclopedias for the references to Sunday and Sabbath day. One reason for keeping Sunday was very dominant, and that was that it
was a memorial of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. So I went home and began to study the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. When I discovered that Jesus could
not possibly have risen on Sunday, serious doubts about Sunday keeping came in and I kept on studying. What you have on this site is the result of about fifteen years
studying the subject of the Sabbath day. I encourage every reader to consider this study very carefully. There are very many proofs here that
the Sabbath day was never scrapped by God, and the current Sunday worship tradition is nothing more that a compromise with paganism by the early
church. Dear Christian, If you love God, study this out very carefully, and I wish every blessing on those who do. May God give you the spirit of wisdom and
revelation in the knowledge of him, and the eyes of your understanding be enlightened.
