Don't these people have any concept of symbolism?

Sevemth-Day Adventists celebrate their sabbath on Saturday.  The problem is that Samoa decided to change their calendar to agree with that of Australia by jumping ahead 24 hours...from Friday to Sunday.  Is Sunday now the seventh day?

I clicked on the link without paying attention to what it was, and now I'm confused.

"The issue boils down to: "When is God's Sabbath?" In other words, what is His holy day of rest?"

Why do people want to make sure that they're going to church on His day off? That seems counterproductive.

Some of you religious folks are going to think this dispute is pretty silly.

Keep that in mind.

No, they're literalists who also believe the Earth is 6,000 years old.

Jesus: "You went to church on Saturdays? Welcome to eternal paradise! Oh, you went on Sundays? That's the fire and rape pits for you. Why no, I don't take medication. Why do you ask?"
 
2014-02-01 12:29:21 PM
What they should do is check with the local Jewish community and see which day they celebrate the Sabbath on. That's the Sabbath.

Unless there's some proof Obama was born in Kenya because Wednesday fell on a Saturday in 1961, it ain't real.

It doesn't farking matter which day they celebrate the sabbath. Exodus 31:15 says "Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. (KJV)"

How about religious folks worry less about what day they crowd into a church and worry more about practicing the tenets of their faith the other six days of the week?
 
2014-02-01 12:57:38 PM
There is that partial day at the end of the year too.  Will need some serious review of all the days since the calendar was created.  I think it is impossible to know what day of the week it was compared to today vs 4.5 billion years ago.
Best if everyone use the same language and calendar and as long as they rest one day a week and tried to do it on the right day, what is the big deal?
 
2014-02-01 12:57:53 PM
Wait, really?  There are people who think they'll go to Hell if it turns out they've been going to church on the wrong day of the week?

It must suck going to that church, having to deal with people who have to close the door 50 times before walking inside, make sure they make an equal number of steps with their left and right feet without any asymmetry in their gait patterns before sitting down, and say "Amen" 30 different times while cycling through every possible prayer gesture in case one of them means, "j/k, Hail Satan."

I've often wondered how God dealt with time in many worldwide religions when time differences are all over the place. For example, Jews traditionally believe that the day ends and the new day begins at sundown. You can look at Genesis for the first example of this - "...the evening and the morning were the [first, second, third...] day." But evening where? Should Judeo-Christians observe the beginning of the Sabbath at sundown in Mesopotamia, where the named rivers indicate was the location of the Garden of Eden? Or Mt. Sinai, where Mosaical Law, including the actual Sabbath Commandment, began? Or in modern day Israel, where the Jews settled? Should things be calculated locally, so that it is not sinful for one person in North America to make a phone call to Europe, but it is sinful for the European to answer the phone? And then the European can call back the next day, but by that time, it's sinful for the North American to answer? Now we've lost TWO days of productivity instead of one!

What about other religions? Observant Muslims do not eat while the sun is up during the month of Ramadan. But the sun is always up somewhere! Should an observant Muslim only eat when the sun is not up over Mecca, or only when it is night locally?

What if I'm flying across the International Dateline and I miss the Sabbath, am I exempt from having to observe it? What if I'm flying with the Earth's rotation so it's still dark when I land during Ramadan - can I still eat?

It's like God didn't take into account time zones of the Earth (which he created) when he passed all of these laws, so does that mean time zones are heretical?

Heh, thanks. It just struck me as totally illogical. I mean, if I only had one day off a week and people were showing up at my house on my day off every single week, singing and lecturing each other and asking me for things, I know I'd get a little....vengeful.

I might think it was a little weird, but if it's a GOOD church choir, I'd be okay with the singing as long as they left off everything else.

Remember folks: the Good Book is the literal word of God, and not a single piece of it can be false.
Just ignore the fact that fundamentalists can't agree on whether a word in the very first chapter in that book refers to a Saturday or a Sunday.

A paper written by Auckland Pastor Neone Okesene was submitted to church leaders last year. Mr Okesene wrote that the decision went against everything the church stood for.


Really... That's everything your church stands for - which day of the week you should have off? Wow, your church SUCKS. I mean, you'd think it would be about loving one another and forgiveness and shiat, but apparently it's not. No no no, fark all that stuff.... What day of the week I sleep in, now THAT'S what's important to our religion.

Pastor Okesene, maybe you've got some serious reevaluation of your priorities to do, asshole. You're taking the wrong thing entirely too seriously.
