So far it's not written anywhere in the Bible, we will not accept it!

What's written in the Bible is that God presented his laws to Moses who in turn presented it to the Israelites. Apart from this there is nowhere in the Bible that says God gave any WRITTEN law before then! undecided

Is Sunday worship boldly written in the Bible?

https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/witness.

Look a the Greek translation of the word written as witness than you will understand that it is not referring to something that is alive and watching.
The dictionary you quoted seem to suggest that witnesses are persons who testify, attest to an event, corroborate a happening etc.

Can you give me an example of a non living or non person Witness?

So you need to see where it is written?

The one Abraham obeyed who gave him?

Once there is NO written code, it simply means he lived by his God's given conscience just like everyone else, before God now called him to deal with him. And since he proved to be loyal to God all through, he became God's friend! James 2:23

So presently you're churchless!

No wonder Shadeyinka is so much interested in your case, he is not as churchless as you're but the doctrines of his church means nothing to him!

He said "Church doctrines does not define me" So his ECWA is not that Christian to the level he could strongly hold on to what's been taught there!

I'm one of Jehovah's Witnesses, everything that comes from our own Governing Body means directives from the one who appointed them (Jesus) and not just the one who appointed them but the one who also chose that one(Jehovah) smiley

So you're now members of the same congregation, "the congregation of churchless individuals whose beliefs can't be defined by any specific organization! cheesy

On judgment day do you think Church or denomination counts?

What matters is God's word.

Is Sunday worship body written in the Bible?

Through the MOSAIC LAWS, we learnt that God wants his worshipers to set a day aside for worship.

So it's not necessarily Sunday or Saturday, anyone can choose any day that's convenient for him, just know that you must set a day for worship and rest as a Worshiper of the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob!

That's the PRACTICAL APPLICATION! smiley

Genesis 26:5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.

Genesis 18:19 For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.

Was Abraham going to give his children his conscience?

Thats false.

Its purpose was to be a reminder that God is the creator of the Universe.


Exodus 20:10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

Exodus 20:11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.


Do you know that without the sabbath God insistuted we would not have 7days a week?

It is called Sabbath of the LORD not Man's day.

Do you know that the sabbath is the only day in the bible God calls his Holy day or the Lord's day?

Isaiah 58:13 If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:

Keep calm and read.


T his verse has to be one of the most abused and misunderstood verses
in relation to the law of God. Some apply it to all of the Ten
Commandments, and others just to the fourth Commandment the
Sabbath. And yet others say this passage is saying we still have to keep
the feast days associated with the sacrificial law. But in fact this passage
is saying the exact opposite in that it was these feast days that were
nailed to the cross. Read Colossians 2:16 Feasts and Holydays or
Colossians 2:16 and Holydays for more.
M any Christians today demean the sacrifice of Christ by choosing to nail
everything to the cross they do not want to obey. But to establish what
was really nailed to the cross, just ask yourself these simple questions.
What was the penalty for sin? What was required to make atonement for
sin before the cross that pointed forward to the sacrifice of Christ? And
do we still have to take an animal sacrifice to the temple priest when we
sin or did Christ end these sacrifices by taking their place and hence
nailing them to the cross? Thus the only thing nailed to the cross was the
law of sacrifices that Christ replaced when He died for our sins. This law
had meat and drink [ offerings ], holydays [ feast days], new moons and
sabbath days [ Passover Sabbath and six others ] exactly as described in
Colossians 2:16.
W hy would anyone who truly loves
Christ think that His death was a
license to continue in the very sin that
nailed Him to the cross in the first
place. It grieves me deeply that there
is no shortage of deceived Christians
and even some that mock those who
love God enough to obey His Law and
teach otherwise.
Note also that most modern Bibles
have wrongly translated meat and
drink [offerings] to being able to eat
unclean food and drinks. But the first
serious issue with this misunderstanding is that there is no such thing as
unclean drinks in the Bible and Jesus did not die for the food we eat. He
died to pay the penalty for our sin.
W hen some see the word Sabbaths in Colossians 2:16, they instantly
assume it is the Lord's Sabbath, which is one of the Ten
Commandments. But how do they come to this conclusion when there
were also seven Sabbaths that were instituted because of sin, such as
Passover to state an obvious one? Also, the word Sabbaths or Sabbath
days is plural in the Greek, which also means it is referring to something
that had more than one Sabbath, which the ordinances did have and what
Paul was referring to as seen in Colossians 2:14 .
T he fourth Commandment, being the Lord's Sabbath, is one of a kind
and is not a sacrificial law and hence is not part of the ordinances. Luke
1:6 is just one easy way to demonstrate that the Ten Commandments
and the ordinances are two separate things.
As stated earlier, Paul informs us in Colossians 2:14 what he is referring
to in verse 16. Colossians 2:14 “ 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. ” The ordinances were the sacrificial part of the
Mosaic Law that ended with Christ as He became our final perfect
sacrifice. So what did these ordinances or sacrificial law require?
P aul explains in Colossians 2:16 “ Let no man therefore judge you in meat,
or in drink [offerings], or in respect of an holyday [feast], or of the new
moon , or of the sabbath days : 17 Which are a shadow of things to come;
but the body is of Christ. ” Parentheses are added.
So Paul informs us that the ordinances had “ meat and drink offerings, ”
“ holy feast days, ” “ monthly new moon festivals ” and the “ yearly sacrificial
Sabbaths. ” Remember that the word Sabbaths in verse 16 is plural and
means that more than one Sabbath is being referred to as the ordinances
did have seven Sabbaths that were because of sin as stated earlier.
V erse 17 says that these feast days were shadows ( type) as they were a
shadow of some future event that they pointed forward to ( antitype ).
Type and antitype will always match precisely. This is why Passover and
Passover Sabbath ended at the cross as Jesus became our Passover
Lamb and so Passover being the shadow vanished at the cross. The
Lord's Sabbath existed before sin and so cannot be a shadow of anything.
Now carefully compare Galatians 4:10 and Colossians 2:16 and see also
Adam Clarke and Albert Barnes Commentaries. Read was the Sabbath
abolished or Colossians 2:16 Sabbath or ceremonial law for a detailed
exegesis on this passage that shows the Sabbath was not nailed to the
cross.
