I guess you better not shuck and eat corn on the Sabbath then...then again an all day fast(fasting might be considered a ‘work’ done on the Sabbath) never hurt anyone...oh and no water! I’ll get your cow out of the ditch for you if I can keep half of it for my freezer!
Hey, I guess all males should be circumcised, right...that is if they want to be “following all of Christ’s commandments”!
I agree about the “pastor” in question, he certainly sounds bizarre. Paul never did say not to keep the Sabbath, he just states that “some may esteem one day more than others” but that wasn’t something to get in a quibble over. Some have stronger faith and some have weaker faith!
I guess I am a breaker of rabbinic law then, but thank God, rabbinic law has no authority over me as rabbinic law has no real authority at all according to he Word of God.
You will not find the word ‘Sabbath’ anywhere in Rm 14. The entire chapter is about fasting, one may fast on Monday and another may fast on Tuesday, etc, etc and we are to respect whatever day one chooses as their ‘fast to the LORD’. The Sabbath of God is a feast day, not a fast day. It was Roman Cristendom that changed His feast day into a fast day according to her council canons.
Fasting was a great controversy back then as the religious elites of Judaism had made laws setting aside specific days for fasting and anyone who did not follow their oral laws, their ‘dogma’ were subject to being fined and possibly even kept from entering the Temple of God as a punishment.
