John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

I believe the "Sabbath" is still in effect and commanded.

 

  1. I do not believe we "keep" the Sabbath according to a customary or traditional calendar and planetary or lunar alignment. But I do believe from the pattern set forth from creation 1 day in 7 we are to rest.
  2. I do not believe we "keep" the Sabbath according to the practices and traditions as maligned and recorded in Scripture but I do believe Jesus exampled proper Sabbath keeping.
  3. I do not believe we "keep" the Sabbath for our Justification, but I do believe the Sabbath is kept as a standard by which we are being made holy in our sanctification.
  4. I do not believe we "keep" the Sabbath according to Jewish custom, but by the authority of the Apostles the Sabbath is kept on the First day of the week when we are to rest in the Lord and Worship Him (Christian Sabbath). Arguably this is a Tradition, but nonetheless the First Day of the Week is a Scriptural Tradition based on 1-3 but not limited to.
  5. I reject Apostolic Succession in that the Catholic church has the authority by the power invested in successive apostleship as though the office is still open to make new Tradition which is as authoritative as Scripture.

I'm not aware of any apostolic authority in scripture which indicates that.  What do you have in mind?

William,
Sorry; when you wrote "authority of the Apostles" and " Scriptural Tradition" I thought you were referring to the apostles mentioned in scripture.

We just think it to be a good idea to go to Church on Sunday and then come home and have it be a day of rest.

Thanks for reminding me.

Voted yes but, is it a must?

Hard one to call?

 

But, one day of rest to honor our God seems to be recommended and the lest we can do.

 

We can be good at lest.

Did God take a day of rest?

Did He really have to do that?

No but, apparently He thought we did.

Mountainmanbob,
re:  "Have a blessed day,  (Sunday)"

 

Just so it's understood that the 1st day of the week - if by Sunday you mean the 1st day of the week - is never blessed in scripture.

So the day the saints come into communion in remembrance of Jesus Christ's death as well as the day of His Resurrection has no blessing?

 I would think so since the profound blessing involved in this remembrance (1 Corinthians 10:16). We are truly blessed because of it. In it we bless God/Christ and He blesses us and in this fellowship. The Christian is also blessed by the presence of other believers as well.

William,
re:  "So the day the saints come into communion in remembrance of Jesus Christ's death and the day of His Resurrection is not blessed?"  

 

Maybe, maybe not.  Scripture is silent with regard to anyone meeting on the 1st day of the week in remembrance of the Messiah's resurrection.

I vote yes though the Scripture is silent on this issue for me honoring the Lord and resting and praying and attending church is a must.
