    Sunday in traditional Christian tradition is the religious day. What do you do to mark religion on Sunday?

    Since they allowed shops (etc.)to open on a Sunday in the UK a lot of people go shopping, although some people do still go to church on a Sunday.

    The biggest difference for Sunday for me is lunch.  I still enjoy a traditional Sunday roast, with all the trimmings.  It is my favourite meal of the week.

    Jesus said that the sabbath is there for man. Everybody needs a day off. Its healthy and beneficial in so many ways, yay to the wisdom of God to make a day of rest for his people.
    I choose to start my sabbath Tuesday night at 6 (in the winter) and when the sun slips below the horizon (in the summer) and do nothing - I sit in bed and think about God. When i wake in the morning it is still sabbath and i remain in bed (winter) and tan in the sunshine (summer). Any work that doesn't contain mercy i do not do.
    But i enjoy the down time and the praise time and communion with Him. Sabbath is truly a gift from God.

      I see a quote from the bible on another thread that anyone that lights a fire on the sabbath gets put to death.

        That was introduced to stop neighbours from firing up the wood barbecue in the winter and smoking the whole bloody suburb out because the wood was damp. smile

        Exodus 16:23   And he said unto them, This is that which the LORD hath said, To morrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD: bake that which ye will bake to day, and cook that ye will cook; and that which remains over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.

        To light a fire was work, no matches no bic lighters no zippos.. but a flame could be transported from one place to another.

        and recall that they also had strangers amongst them. Lighting a fire for heat (mercy) was perhaps a hireable job for the non-jews. Number of people recorded as killed for kindling fires... 0

        your point was....

          if someone in the bible lit a fire because they were cold or to make a meal, they would be put to death. Gift from god?

            didn't you read my post? I covered that... you inferred that people making a fire to heat themselves would be put to death. But when scrutinized this is not the case as there are workarounds.
            God never gives us impossible tasks or wants us to freeze in the winter, especially the old and sick.
            The key word here is in the scripture previous, and the word is work.
            Smithies kindled fires as part of their work. God said cook the day before. Fire can be carried from one place to another to light a fireplace for warmth..
            Your point is..........

              my point is it is all about pointless rules and regulations with ridiculous consequences for not following them

                They are not pointless.
                They apply to a people whose way of life we do not fully comprehend and i dare say cannot even glimpse into.
                If we do not turn our hydro, what are we going to do? The christian would sit and contemplate God, sleep a natural sleep cycle - natural cycles were what the Hebrews were all about. They were in tune with natures seasons, sunsets and sunrises, cycles of the moon and etc.
                We, unfortunately, when given the privilege of peeking into a lifestyle such as they had, are unable to comprehend without great difficulty what went on, but being - as the unsaved are - "children of wrath" - finger pointing, blame, criticism even hateful and hasty opinions are the first reactions.

                Don't forget they also had oil lamps that were most likely lit before Sabbath and allowed to burn throughout the Sabbath. this same flame would also be used to light fire in the fireplace. The king james uses kindle not light.. kindle is to produce fire from nothing but rubbing sticks together.. light is a different situation.

                Not a bad rule. It actually has insight, the same insight that inspired God to make the Sabbath day.
                Again number of people in the bible recorded for dying from this rule, 0

                Now numbers 15:31-36 about the man dying who gathered sticks on the Sabbath has some tasty information, in fact, quite a lot of information about an anonymous man, with no record of family, not even a name (and the bible has names of everybody). A self serving man who thought his life was fine without God and at the end of his life, was - the equivalent of - thrown into the lake of fire.
                Chew on that for a while. smile
