Growing Up Seventh-Day Adventist: Even God Rested

  1. I think Jesus’ teachings gave freedom from the constraints religion put on the Sabbath. It’s a day for us, as he said, the sabbath was made for man and not the other way around. We all need a change of rhythm, some free time. What if God rested for 1000 years? 🙂

    1. Made for man, and not the other way around. I like how you put that, and I think that’s absolutely true. The problem I think we tend to run into is that we think we are doing his will, and that is not true.

  2. Without grudge, I unhesitatingly disagree with your notion, to have compared the doings of man to what actually God had ordained. “Remember the Sabbath day, and keep it holy” the sabbath was supposed to be a delight, not a punishment, this rest isn’t one to sleep all day, or be seated idle, but as a matter of fact have communion with Elohim and with other believers joined in. For “You must not forsake the gathering of the assembly”. Throughout bible, you would realise that the sabbath actually is a specific day and not just any day, otherwise so much importance wouldn’t have been placed on it

    1. I completely agree that the purpose of the Sabbath was not for being idle, but for communion with god and fellowship with man. However, the particular religion I followed didn’t follow those particular parameters, which is where this post was born.
