I don't do nothing well eihter. It's especially difficult when your work is so much a part of your life. It's easier if you work in an office or have a 9-5 job that's capable of being left behind for a day. I think writer's are always writing in their head, and it's hard to turn that off, even for a few hours.But I definitely see the value in doing in. Like a hearty soup or stew in which the flavors improve while sitting, so do the ideas and thoughts in the writers head.Enjoy your Sabbath day Becca recently posted..

Dear A. Way,You have written prepahs the very best response ever posted on my blog!I very much appreciate your taking the time to carefully study what I have posted, and the time you took to write a challenging response.I like how you were able to relate what you assert to the rules of interpretation I have listed. That shows me you actually read those rules with understanding.Even recognized Bible scholars are divided in their interpretation of Revelation 1:10.Most interpret this verse to suggest it refers to the Sunday or so-called Christian Sabbath. Of course, the only Sabbath known to Scripture as a day of worship is not the first day of the week, but the seventh day, which we call Saturday.There is no such thing as the Christian Sabbath known to Scripture. There is not a word of the Sabbath ever having been changed to another day.Now, one could argue from these facts that the proper day of worship for Christians who want to go by what the Bible actually teaches can only be the Sabbath. Some denominations, like the Seventh Day Adventists, and less well known, the Seventh Day Baptists, follow this argument as the Scriptural position.That this is not the Biblical position is readily seen if we consider what Paul has written in Romans 14:5, 6 Rom 14:5 One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.Rom 14:6 He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks. Paul states that the day one worships or otherwise holds in esteem is not material. Each person is free to practice according to his own mind. Paul's point earlier in the passage (Romans 14:1) is that those who maintain scruples about what should or should not be eaten, or who have scruples about the day of worship, are actually the weaker brethren in the Lord, and that We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak. Jesus himself, in terms of what is actually recorded of His words in the New Testament, never once mentions the Sabbath commandment as a command, though he several times mentions some of the other commandments.There are absolutely no examples in the New Testament of Christians meeting for exclusively and specifically Christian worship on the Sabbath, not one.There is not a single line devoted anywhere in the New Testament epistles to exhorting Christians to be faithful observers of the Sabbath.There are many commands given in the New Testament, even in the epistles, but not once is the keeping of the Sabbath one of them.Going back to Revelation 1:10. The reference cannot be to Sunday worship, for Sunday was never the Sabbath. Sunday is never in Scripture called the Lord's Day. Scripture clearly specifies that the Sabbath is the seventh day, not the first day of the week. The seventh day of course is our Saturday, commonly understood as the Jewish Sabbath. The Sabbath was never changed to Sunday in terms of what the Bible itself teaches.Some writers refer to Sunday as the Christian Sabbath, leaving Saturday to be the Jewish Sabbath. The Sabbath is in Scripture an exclusively Jewish institution. It does not pertain to the Gentiles or non-Jews, and most certainly in the New Testament does not apply to Christians.Poor Robinson Crusoe on his deserted island, reading those three good Bibles, even if he were still there yet, would never have found anything about a Christian Sabbath in those plain text Bibles.Interpreters who insist that Revelation 1:10 must refer to the day of worship are of course bringing to the text the background of what they already believe, and take this position to maintain that belief.In the context of the whole book of Revelation, and what transpires in the visions John was granted, it is most obvious, even to a casual reader, that those events take place in the day of the Lord. Therefore, in the light of Revelation 1:19, which provides the divinely inspired outline of the book of Revelation, those events in the day of the Lord belong to what is there called the things which shall be hereafter.
