What religions keep the Sabbath still? Judaism, SDA anyone else or do most think they're celebrating it still on Sunday? I know its the traditional day to go to church but do they also think that's because its the Sabbath?

DISCLAIMER: I have not read this entire article, but judging by its length, I'd say it provides an in-depth and thorough look at the subject.

http://www.gci.org/law/sabbath/hanson

Here is the conclusion:
    Now that we have demonstrated that the first day of the week was the Christian day of regular corporate worship in the church in Asia at the end of the first century, we can chart a course backward from Revelation 1:10 to see where this practice began.

    If we view Acts 20:7 and 1 Cor. 16:1 in the light of second century writings discussed above, it is likely that they can be viewed as evidence that Sunday worship was the normal practice in the Pauline churches.[76]

    We can then take this trajectory back even further. Although no early Christian document explicitly identifies the origin of Sunday worship in the post-resurrection appearances of Jesus, the Gospel writers considered it important to mention that those appearances took place on the first day of the week and that Jesus met with his disciples on that day.

    When the Gospel accounts were written, Sunday was the day of Christian worship and was apparently understood to be a memorial of the resurrection. When Sunday worship was the practice, Christians must have connected it with the Lord's resurrection on a Sunday.[77] This may have also influenced the way the Gospel writers treated the sabbath controversies as they showed that Jesus was superior to the sabbath and that his actions offended the sabbath-observing Pharisees.

    We can then take that trajectory back to the time of the historical Jesus and see that his messianic work superseded the seventh-day sabbath and that as his disciples began to meet on Sunday they could look to the example of Jesus and not feel bound to observe the seventh-day sabbath.

I think hanging off a cross is a helluva gross way to spend Easter. I'd rather have chocolate.

Wow, that's pretty twisted... even for GF... kind of psychotic actually.

There is no reason to be so grossly insulting. I will not post anymore in this forum.

Hmmm... someone is very touchy. As a friend once said, "Don't pet the sweaty things."
Trying to get spiritual nourishment from a two thousand year old book is like trying to suck milk from the breast of a woman who has been dead that long.

Who says Sunday is the first day of the week? I thought it was part of the weekend.

Just put the grossly insulting people on your "Foe" list and never read their posts again. After that, carry on, you have worthy things to say.
Please stop bragging on facebook about how great the Okanagan is right now, or they'll want to move here.

Sunday is at one end, and Saturday is at the other end. Just sayin'.

I didn't know about that but now I do, thanks. Some people are not worth even knowing about. I would mention who, but I'm much kinder then they are. So I will post still, if this foe thing works.

I don't think it works if they're quoted by someone else. I just added them and can still see their vile, disgusting, hate filled rant.
