    If catholics and people of most denominations know this, then why do religious ministers and priests, still teach sunday worship to their followers?

    Why shouldn't they? Last time I checked Judaism and Christianity were different religions. If you follow this path, you should require dates to change at a sunset, too smile

      I hear your point. Anyway, Christ will be coming soon to restore all things.

      One priests told my father, they know Saturday is the Sabbath, but said that they(the priests) could not tell the people that. As a matter a fact, I attended a Catholic primary school(no choice, it was close to home and free, and we weren't rich), it was there I first learned that Constantine was the one who changed the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday. Not in my church! Interesting huh? I think so.

    As far as I'm aware, Constantine changed a lot of other things, too. And what Christians call the word of God is often the word of Constantine smile

      oh boy Constantine!  I was waiting for that guy to come up again.  The "founder" of Christainity. 

      The guy who was self proclaimed and said that it was his duty as called on by the holy spirit to make Christianity a religion.

      No, it's a proven scientific fact that atheist communists hate dolphins. It is in the bible with all the other scientific facts.

      Otherwise known as a joke....... big_smile

    IIRC the early christians chose to celebrate the sabbath on sunday as a way of distancing themselves from the Jews and also as a way to try to appeal to pagans of that time, who generally venerated the sun as the top god.

      The early Christians celebrated the only sabbath observed by God Himself, the seventh day. Various influences eroded this until Constantine lowered the legal boom, then mixed paganism with the apostates of Christ, thus the beginning of Constantinian Christianity, which is with us today and pervasive.

      Yes, they met on various days, but not to celebrate the sabbath. They met to break bread, preach and teach the Word and fellowship, as well as to attend to official matters before the local body of believers.

      The sabbath has never been changed.

    The Holy Mass is said every day in Catholic churches.  I believe the fact that Jesus' Resurrection was on a Sunday has something to do with Sunday Masses. 

    One story goes that Constantine didn't convert to be a Christian until his death bed.  No matter how the story goes Constantine reversed the persecution of Christians by the Roman Empire mostly because his mother Helen was a devote Christian.
