Reasons for Sunday are not Biblical

by Bill Wong

 

 

Introduction

 

The Roman Catholic Church openly admits that the Lord Jesus Christ did not abolish the 10 Commandments including the Sabbath, but by its own decree it has abolished the Sabbath day and has created its own worship day – Sunday, the first day of the week (please see article ‘The Sabbath – not Sunday’. Sunday is a day, as seen even by its name, dedicated to pagan sun and sun-god worship.

 

Despite this, the Roman Catholic Church leaves the Sabbath commandment in their version of the 10 Commandments (see below – the Sabbath commandment is listed 3rd instead of 4th, because the 2nd Commandment to not create and bow down to idols was removed), even though the 4th Commandment of God states the Sabbath is the 7th day (Exodus 20:8-11).

The Council(s) of Trent were a series of councils called together by the Roman Catholic Church to address the Protestant Reformation and the catechism which came from it is still considered to be a thorough and important statement of the Catholic faith.

 

In the Catechism of the Council of Trent, the Roman Catholic Church deceptively dismisses the 7th day Sabbath as not a moral law, but a ceremonial law. However, in order to justify the creation of a new worship day – Sunday, it then hypocritically says the Sabbath can also be considered a moral law and God requires a time to worship Him. So the Roman Catholic Church then uses this double-minded argument of its own making to choose its own day Sunday in place of the Sabbath – after it has “conveniently” discarded the Sabbath as ceremonial. Then the Roman Catholic Church proceeds to demand everyone must adhere to Sunday.

 

But according to its own words, would not Sunday also be ceremonial if the Sabbath was considered ceremonial and of no worth (the easier to get rid of it)? And yet, the Roman Catholic Church declares Sunday as a moral obligation to God, but not the Sabbath which is one of God’s 10 Commandments. Can the reader see the hypocrisy and crafty manipulation and maneuvering to do what should be obvious: the Roman Catholic Church just wants to get rid of God’s Sabbath commandment and replace it with a commandment of its own. God’s Sabbath was created on the 7th day of creation and the commandment was given directly from heaven on Mount Sinai. The Roman Catholic Church’s tradition of Sunday is completely human in origin through double-talk and its own double-standards.

 

In the Catechism of Trent, it refers to six Biblical passages or themes as part of the evidence it uses to justify why it nullifies God’s Sabbath day and “thought it well to transfer the celebration and observance of the Sabbath to Sunday”.

 

We will address these references and in so doing, we will discover that the Roman Catholic Church has deliberately deceived everyone – all Christianity, distorting the Word of God to justify its own tradition of Sunday worship, making the Law of God of no effect, and replacing it with the traditions of men. Not surprisingly, these six reasons are also used by all Sunday-believing Christians (including Protestants who are counted among those deceived by the Roman Catholic Church) to support Sunday over God’s Sabbath.

 

 

For an in depth look at the false reasoning used by the Roman Catholic Church for the Sunday Sabbath,

please click on the reasons below to read the following articles in this series:

 

  • Reason #1 – Galatians 4:8-11 (“observing days….weak and beggarly elements”)
  • Reason #2 – Colossians 2:16-17 (“shadow and substance”)
  • Reason #3 – 1 Corinthians 16:1-5 (“collections on 1st day”)
  • Reason #4 – Revelation 1:10 (“the Lord’s day”)
  • Reason #5 – The Roman Catholic Church claims Lord Jesus was risen on Sunday, however, this is not true.  The Bible shows Jesus was raised on the Sabbath day – the 7th day.
  • Reason #6 – Acts 2:1-4 (“the Feast of Weeks/Harvest (Pentecost) as evidence”)
