Sabbath rest or sabbath worship? – Part 2

In my previous post, I looked at how the Bible never calls the sabbath a day of worship. I’ve challenged Adventists to show me where the Bible says it is a day of worship. Needless to say, there were no responses forthcoming that actually provided me with biblical evidence of the Adventist claim. Also, needless to say, there were responses … I was provided with several passages that don’t say that, but which Adventists felt they had to share to convince me of their “truth”.

Adventists could list thousands of such verses – every single verse in the Bible is a verse that fails to show that the sabbath was meant as a day of worship.

Let’s look at a few provided to me (all from the KJV).

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.

  • No mention of worship.
  • No command to worship on the day.

Daniel 7:25 – And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

  • No mention of worship.
  • No command to worship on the day.
  • Only a connection to changing times and laws, something that fits Antiochus Epiphanes.

The Resurrection of Christ

Luke 4:16 – And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.

Acts 17:2 – And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures

One Adventist closed off his response to my request: “This generation demands a miracle

Little did he realise that by criticising me for requesting biblical references, and refusing to provide them, he was acknowledging that it would take a miracle to find such biblical references. They don’t exist.
