One of the Ten Commandments has become the "poor cousin." Is it time to embrace your poor cousin?
This book is about the Fourth Commandment - the Sabbath, which has become the poor cousin of the Ten Commandments.
Saturday, the seventh day Sabbath, is the central holy day of the Bible. It was established at Creation and codified in the Ten Commandments. Sunday, however, has become the most important holy day of Christianity since the second century. The issue of Saturday versus Sunday Sabbath has been hotly debated for centuries. It's also the case that many other Christians no longer regard either day to be uniquely holy, seeing all time as sacred. Here, a case for the traditional Sabbath of the Ten Commandments is presented with respect shown toward other views, in light of the complexity of the issue.
Regardless of the stance taken in this debate, what shines through is our physical and spiritual need to enjoy the blessings of God's Sabbath rest. Sabbath rest is a dear friend amidst our hectic lifestyles in a world nearing spiritual bankruptcy.
Irrespective of our view on this issue however, the truth is that salvation is by God's grace, through faith, and not through commandment keeping
