Who changed the Sabbath to Sunday?

Topic Started By: goddy       Created: Sun, Apr 7th, 9:40 am

Who changed the Sabbath to Sunday? My life is spent in one long energy to escape from the commonplaces of presence. It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly, one starts to curve realities to suit theories rather than theories to suit realities.

So, we will look at the data, analyse the facts, and come to a logical conclusion in the end. After we eliminate all other factors, the one that remains must be the truth. The game is afoot, so let's begin.

Where do we begin?

Who changed the Sabbath to Sunday?Isn't it obvious? We start at the beginning. As we open the Bible, we find that the Sabbath is woven into creation. " Consequently, the heavens, the earth, and all the host of them were done. Furthermore, God finished His work on the seventh day, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it because He rested from all His work, which God had created and made. - Genesis 2:1-3

God sanctified the Sabbath as a foundational act in creation. So, I did an exhaustive study of the Sabbath in the Bible. I was looking for anything that might explain the change in the Sabbath from the 7th day to the 1st day of the week. I found lots of data. Over a hundred verses in the Bible speak about the Sabbath, and I examined every single one of them.

"You shall gather it in six days, but on the seventh day, which is the Sabbath, there will be none . . .  See! For the Lord has given you the Sabbath... " - Exodus 16:26-29 "And He said to them, "The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. " - Mark 2:27 "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.  

You shall labour and do all your work in six days. However, the seventh day is the Lord's, your God's, Sabbath. You won't have to work in it " - Exodus 20:8-10, "And they rested on the Sabbath according to the commandment. " - Luke 23:56 " It is a sign between Me and the descendants of Israel forever; for in six days the Lord created the heavens and earth, and on the seventh day, He rested and was refreshed. '" - Exodus 31:17 "So ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham. . . be loosed from this oath on the Sabbath? " - Luke 13:16 "Therefore the children of Israel shall preserve the Sabbath, to perceive the Sabbath throughout their peers as a CONTINUOUS covenant. " - Exodus 31:16 "So when the Jews went out of the synagogue, THE GENTILES pleaded that these words might be preached to them the subsequent Sabbath. " - Acts 13:42 ". . .

And from one Sabbath to another, all flesh shall arise to worship before Me," Declares the Lord. " - Isaiah 66:23 "And he reasoned in the temple every Sabbath, and convinced both Jews and Greeks. " - Acts 16:13 “.... it is the Sabbath of the Lord in all your dwellings." - Leviticus 23:3 "For the Son of Man is LORD OF THE SABBATH. " - Matthew 12:8

There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact. And the obvious fact is . . .  There is no record of the Sabbath ever being changed in the Bible. 

Yeshua kept the Sabbath, His disciples kept the Sabbath, and even the Gentile converts kept the Sabbath.   Yeshua even calls Himself "Lord of the Sabbath, ", " indicating He owns it. While it's true that the early Church met in homes daily, that doesn't negate that they continued to keep the Sabbath. There is also a mention of Paul preaching on the First Day of the week, but the text explains that it's because he has to leave on a trip the next day, indicating it was due to exceptional circumstances.

Also, this event occurs on Saturday night leading up to midnight, not Sunday morning. "Now, on the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul, ready to depart the next day, spoke to them and continued his message until midnight." - Acts 20:7

We also have a record of Paul teaching Gentiles in Corinth for a year and a half. There are 52 Sabbaths in a year, plus half a year, which is 26 more Sabbaths, which equals 78 Sabbaths just in Corinth alone. The world is a whole of obvious things which nobody by any chance ever observes. 

And the second fact I learned is that the Sabbath is always on the 7th day of the week. This may seem obvious, but some people think the Sabbath can be any day they choose. This is a terrible mistake on their part because they're making exceptions. Never make exceptions. An exception disproves the rule. The rule is that the Sabbath is always and only on the 7th day of the week.

The third fact I ascertained in my study is that the Sabbath is an everlasting sign between God and His people. Never trust general impressions, my boy, but concentrate on the details. What is out of the common is usually a guide rather than a hindrance.

Another fact I discovered is that the Bible spoke about apostasy that would come in the Church. "The Spirit clearly says that in later times, some will ABANDON THE FAITH and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. " - 1 Timothy 4:1 ". . . and they will TURN THEIR EARS AWAY FROM THE TRUTH, and be turned aside to fables." - 2 Timothy 4:3-4 "But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be FALSE TEACHERS AMONG YOU, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies. . ." - 2 Peter 2:1 "You therefore, beloved, since you know this beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your steadfastness, being led away with the   ERROR OF THE WICKED" - 2 Peter 3:17 ". . .He who says, "I know Him," and DOES NOT KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS IS A LIAR, and the truth is not in him. " - 1 John 2:3-4

As I stated, "What is out of the common is usually a guide rather than a hindrance. " And this warning about false teachers and apostasy is a guide to unveiling the truth in this matter. I had to get to the bottom of this mystery. I searched the Bible from cover to cover and found nothing about any change in the Sabbath. So, my search took me outside the Bible. 

History of the church about who changed the Sabbath and what I found

Constantine I began looking into Church history, and finding what I was looking for didn't take long. And I have something exciting to show you. Come at once if convenient... If inconvenient, come all the same. Every story needs a good old-fashioned villain. And Constantine is ours. Constantine was the Roman Emperor from 306 to 337 A.D. Constantine ended Christian persecution with the Edict of Milan in 313 AD. But on 7 March 321, Constantine decreed that Sunday would be observed as the Roman day of rest, saying, "On the venerable day of the Sun let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed" (Codex Justinianus lib.3, tit. 12, 3; trans. In Philip Schaff, History of the Christian Church, Vol.3, p. 380, note 1).

So, the 5th fact to consider is that Constantine ordered Sunday observance in the Roman Empire.

How did Catholic Church change the Sabbath to Sunday?

Catholic ChurchThe next fact I found is an admission of guilt in this matter. The Catholic Church claims they changed the Sabbath to Sunday by their authority at the Council of Laodicea in the fourth century. I found it in the Convert's Catechism of Catholic Doctrine, which says, “Which is the Sabbath day? Saturday is the Sabbath day.

Why do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday? We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday in the Council of Laodicea. By what authority did the Church substitute Sunday for Saturday? 

The Church substituted Sunday for Saturday by the plenitude of that divine power that Jesus Christ bestowed upon her.” So, what was said in the Council of Laodicea? “Christians must not judaize by resting on the Sabbath, but must work on that day, instead honouring the Lord's Day; and, if they can, resting then as Christians. But if any shall be found to be Judaizers, let them be anathema from Christ.” - Council of Laodicea, canon 29, AD 363. There's an obvious clue here that many people overlook. Christians were still keeping the Sabbath in the 4th century. Otherwise, why would the Catholic Church need to forbid it? The Catholic Catechism explains why Catholics keep Sunday. But why do Christians keep Sunday? 

Ultimately, it comes down to tradition. The Catholic Church kept Sunday for so long that when the Protestant Reformers finally broke away from the Catholic Church, they retained many of the deeply embedded traditions, such as Sunday worship. Now, the obvious question we need to ask is. . . "Who has the authority to change one of God's commandments?" You have a grand gift for silence. It makes you quite invaluable as a companion. Let me put it to you bluntly.

No one has the authority to change any of God's commandments. "You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God   Which I command you. " - Deuteronomy 4:2 Having gathered these facts; I analysed the data to separate those which were crucial from others which were merely incidental. 

Facts about who changed the Sabbath to Sunday

And I’ve come to the only logical conclusion possible. But first, let's review the facts.

  1. FACT #1 - the Sabbath was never changed in the Bible.
  2. FACT #2 - the Sabbath is always on the 7th day.
  3. FACT #3 - the Sabbath is an eternal sign.
  4. FACT #4 - the Bible spoke of apostasy that would come.
  5. FACT #5 - Constantine ordered Sunday observance.
  6. FACT #6 - the Catholic Church claims they changed the Sabbath.
  7. FACT #7 - no one has the authority to change God's commandments.

What's the conclusion?

It's Elementary, my dear.   Just think about it. When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth. 

And the truth is . . . no one changed the Sabbath. The Sabbath will always be the 7th day of the week and will always remain a sign between God and His people. The Sabbath didn't change; it's the people who changed. Certain men decided they didn't want to keep God's commandments anymore, so they stopped, and they convinced others to join them in their apostasy. The Bible warned us about these false teachers who would creep in and corrupt the faith. But today, most Christians keep Sunday in ignorance.

Unaware of these crucial facts that we have uncovered. But it's better to learn wisdom late than never to learn it at all. There's nothing more to say, so hand me my violin, and let's try to forget for half an hour the miserable weather and our fellow men in even more miserable ways.
