The way you can tell if the church you are going to is a christian church is to see what day it's worshipping God on. If it's sunday then it's not a Christian church.
We never go to war on ships in churches, we worship god in spirit and truth.
War is not the christian way of life. never never never .... if you are interested I have already given the cue; the gospel of John is the second
Thanks for opening this forum haj3396. Worship is a lifestyle. It is not based on what day of the week we worship God. I present my body as living, and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God which is spiritual service of worship. Worship is giving God all of ourselves. That means our hearts, minds, hands, thoughts, and attitudes. There is more to worship than singing. Here is the scripture in the bible that says to worship God: 1Chronicles16:19, Psalms95:6. John4:23-24, Romans12;1.
Woman of courage, what you are saying is true in your eyes, but, God states in John 14-15 "If ye love me, keep my commandments." Not do what you feel like. There is only 10 things God is asking you to do why not do them, he died for you, why not live for him.
Well, what does the Bible have to say?
Romans 14:5-6 "One person regards one day above another, another regards every day alike. Each person must be fully convinced in his own mind. He who observes the day, observes it for the Lord, and he who eats, does so for the Lord, for he gives thanks to God; and he who eats not, for the Lord he does not eat, and give thanks to God."
Traditionally, Christian worship occurs on Sunday because that is considered historically to be the day of Christ's resurrection. I would argue, haj3396, that there is more than enough division within the church without finding minor details to condemn others with. True worship happens in the heart of the believer, and within the community of the church, whether or not it be with stained glass windows, wooden pews, and Sunday meeting times. I'll be honest, I've very little patience with people who feel inclined to make such broad, sweeping generalizations like any church that meets on Sunday is not Christian. I'd almost think you were joking, if I hadn't encountered this sort of mentality before.
correct. correct. and correct.....As long as we choose a day and make it His, that is what He is referring to. He is not a petty God.
You are right everyone have to be convinced in his own mind. you started off you good. You are not condemning me and I am not condemning anyone. It's amazing how everyone want to say what christians traditionally do, but, no one what to do what God what them to. Traditionally, Christian worship occurs on Sunday because that is considered historically to be the day of Christ's resurrection. But, God states if you want to honor me for my resurrection communion is the way you do this. 1 Cor 11: 26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come. Roman 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
I agree also with doing the commandments. You asked where in the bible it says to worship. I gave you the scriptures above. I f you read the scriptures for yourself, you will see that following the 10 commandments is not the only thing that God require of us. I am not doing what I feel. I am doing what the word of God says. I see that you are not sticking with your topic. I am not here to argue, but to keep peace. God bless you!
You can go to Church any day and every day that you want to.
There is no commandments concerning what day to go to church.
Traditionally, Christian worship occurs on Sunday because that is considered historically to be the day of Christ's resurrection.
Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy.
When this commandment was given what church did they go to?
Did they meet someplace and sing songs of praise?
At the time that this commandment was given what was its intended meaning?
Does it have the same meaning today as when it was given?
And if the meaning of this one has changed, when did it change and who changed it?
And if we can change this one, Why not the other nine?
Can we add to or take away from the ten commandments?
Is going to Church on any particular day one of the ten commandments?
It is perfectly fine to go to church if you please
You can serve God in the church.
You can serve God anywhere.
You can serve God and not serve the church.
You can serve the church and not serve God.
You can serve neither.
You can serve french fries without ketchup.
But don't be confused and think that the Church "IS" GOD.
Love the Lord Thy God with all your heart. (Correct)
Love your church with all your heart. (wrong)
The Church is any group of our friends that we commune with and study Gods word, any time that we gather together.
One gathering together is no greater than another
We can do that on any day. Any where.
God is not a respecter of persons or buildings.
So we shouldn't be either.
May God Bless us all.
"But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." (John 4:23-24)
I love that verse.
Hitting the sack Night yaul.
Concerning the Sabbath, it was made for man, and not man for it. The new testament, if I'm not mistaken, records the Day Of Pentecost, which I believe the day was on a Sunday. The believers were assembled together. Also, Paul gave us the instruction, "Not to forsake the assembling of yourselves."
I wonder what the word that was translated "Worship" meant when that original word was used.
And even today how many people can agree as to what Worshiping really means today. I'm not talking about what a book says (dictionary) . I think to Love ,respect and honor.
Remember the Sabbath to keep it holy.
To do no work on the seventh day!
I think it says TAKE A DAY OFF and remember to thank me for it.
Some people think that to keep the Sabbath requires going to church. Cause the church teaches that, but that is not what that commandment says.
as I stated earlier, We can gather together any day or any number of days and study the word of God. We should praise God every day.
That has nothing to do with keeping this commandment.
I can keep the Sabbath by going fishing all day, remembering to thank God for such beautiful weather and calm waters, and sufficient fish bait.
If I choose to go to church on my day of rest that is OK If that is what I want to do.
Wow, I have enjoyed reading the wonderful messages about worshipping God.
I laughed at them. They are very funny. Did Jeebus find your car keys or send you money to go to Disney land? Praise be we int starvin like wot them Afrikans is! Them int REEL christians in any case.
Sorry - please feel free to tell us how Very, Very Courageous You Are Again! Use CAPITALS AS WELL.
You are back! My dear!!! It's been so long!!! Did you rest them fingers?! lol
I'm confused Mark K.,
in a forum where people who define themselves as Christian are having a civil discussion concerning a theological issue, what is the motivation behind mockery? It's a legitimate question. I personally rarely post to forums, as they all too often devolve into arguments and insults, but I do read them, and I can't deny that you pop up an awful lot in Christian forums. And nearly every single time, you engage in the exact same judgment and diatribe you deride others for. If belief in God is such a non-issue for you, why does it evidently bother you so very much?
Just when things start to get even more fun, I gotta go make dinner. Saved by the bell, so-to-speak.....
Jesus gave His life to complete and fulfill the Law of Moses and replaced it with His grace.
Jesus said in Matthew 5:17 - Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.
Because of that Paul could write that the day we worship God is not important.
Colossians 2:14-22 - Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holy day, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ. Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshiping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God. Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances, (Touch not; taste not; handle not; Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?
If we didn't have the cross, we would have no way to fulfill the demands of the Law. That's why Jesus lived a perfect, sinless life as a man. He fulfilled the requirements of the Law and replaced its impossible demands with Grace, which includes mercy.
You are 100% wright, but we are not talking about the Law of Moses, we are talking about the Law of God. Moses Law was written in a book, and God's Law was written with his finger.
Deuteronomy 31: 9 And Moses wrote this law, and delivered it unto the priests the sons of Levi, which bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and unto all the elders of Israel.
And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the FINGER OF GOD.

This is not a discussion about discrediting the existence of God or discrediting the church as an institution of God. This serves to provide clarity on the issue of Sunday worship and it's legitimacy.
