Why do Most Christians observe Sunday?
$1 Million reward to find a Sunday text
Many people believe it’s in the Bible somewhere; a text that says the Sabbath was changed from Saturday to Sunday. Without actually seeing the text for themselves, they are still confident that it’s in there somewhere because it’s being taught as doctrine by most Christian churches today. There are many other statements that people hear and are just sure they came from the Bible. For example, “God helps those who help themselves”. Many people believe they can find this well known phrase in the Bible, but they can’t Why? Because this statement is from Poor Richard’s Almanac by Benjamin Franklin. Another statement mistakenly thought to originate from the Bible is, “Cleanliness is next to Godliness”. But that one isn’t from the Bible either. Until they actually try to find it for themselves, people are just sure it’s in the word of God somewhere. In this lesson, we’re going to take on an old challenge. We’re going to search our Bibles for just one text that tells us that Sunday is God’s special day for Christians to observe. If we can find that one text, it could be worth a lot of money to us. Over the years, there have been numerous cash rewards offered for finding that missing text. The rewards range anywhere from $100, all the way up to $1 million, and nobody has ever collected the money as of yet. So what we’ll do in this lesson is look at every text in the Bible that mentions Sunday, the first day of the week, and see if any of them tell us that Sunday is God’s special day, or the new Sabbath, or anything that tells us to meet and observe it, or that God changed His Holy day to it. It shouldn’t take too long because there are only 9 verses in the entire Bible that mention Sunday, the first day of the week. Let's get started.
