    The Sabbath and Jewish Evangelism

    Around 2:38, the orthodox questioner asks why Messianic Jews do not keep the Sabbath. He does not get an answer. Because there is not a good answer - he found one of the inconsistancies of Israeli MJ's. I am sure a Confessional Presbyterian would give an answer that, while not a proof for...

    Recreation on the Lord's Day Article

    Friends, It is often thought Westminster Confession 21.8 prohibits all recreation on the Sabbath. On the contrary, I have written something of an academic article which appears as "Intro & Westminster Only Necessarily Prohibits Worldly Recreations on the Sabbath" on the Recreation on the...

    Dining Out on the Lord’s Day

    My good brother Ron DiGiacomo wrote an excellent piece regarding the Sabbath that I think would be helpful to many here. It has become increasingly difficult to get people to understand the import of the Lord’s Day when it comes to eating out at restaurants, especially here in the South where...

    Recreation on the Lord's Day

    As the whole of the Lord’s Day is to be set apart unto the immediate service of the Lord and spiritual duties, apart from necessities, so Isa. 58:13-14 says that: “If thou turn away thy foot from… doing thy pleasure on my holy day… Then shalt thou delight thyself in the Lord…” Hence...

    Friends, When Does the Sabbath Begin? In the most comprehensive treatment to-date on the subject, I argue in this academic article from Scripture that the Sabbath has always been from dawn-to-dawn since Creation throughout the Bible, without exception. Fentiman, Travis – The Biblical Sabbath...

    "We no longer know which day is Sunday" objection to the Lord's Day

    One objection to the observance of the Lord's Day as the prescribed day for worship I have seen raised is that at some point we have lost track of the days of the week. We have either inserted or omitted a day and we no longer know for sure which day is the first day of the week. Therefore, God...

    Today sermons

    Hi, My pastor just started Amos. He gave the sense of how the beginning might read to the original audience, going from excitement to sobriety because the Lord's judgment included the Jews, because of their own injustice. He pointed us to Christ for salvation, having offered remarks on the...

    Resources Available - Keeping the Lord's Day

    Friends, In light of the recent Super Bowl, how are we to keep the Lord's Day holy? What are the practical nuts and bolts of it? Is our main focus upon enjoying and worshipping the Lord only for public worship in the morning, or is it to extend to the whole day? Is it ok to eat out at...

    Good Friday/Easter/Lord's Supper Dilemma

    Parallel to this thread but I don't want to hijack it. Here is my dilemma: My church is having a "Good Friday" service in which they are serving the Lord's Supper. I will not be in attendance. We are regularly served the Lord's Supper on the first Lord's Day of every month. Without making...

    Using Public Transportation on Lord's Day

    Greetings from Korea, As a well-known fact, Korea has one of the most developed and advanced public transportation systems in major cities (you can disagree with it if you want :p). In fact, it is a lot faster to take buses and subways rather than driving your own car in Seoul, capital. With...

    Sabbath and Single Folks

    Preface: I want this thread to be general advice direct to single Christians, especially at the college/grad school stage who have sabbatarian convictions. This especially applies to folks living in apartments and even more dorms. What are some ways singles best use the Lord's Day without...
