    why not worship every day.. through truth and spirit ! church is simply gods elect,, but yes indeed we should fellowship and praise god on the sabbath!

    You need a Bible study. The Bible doesn't say to attend church every Sunday. It makes no mention of what day you should set aside to worship God. The early Christians did gather together in congregations on a regular basis to pray and discuss the scriptures. The Apostle Paul wrote to the Hebrews to encourage them and build their faith in Jesus Christ. It says at Hebrews 10:24 "let us consider one another to incite to love and fine works not forsaking the gathering of ourselves together as some have the custom, but encouraging one another, and all the more so as you behold the day drawing near." Most congregations today have set times and days for formal gatherings to worship.

    I think it says, remember the Sabbath amd keep it Holy. I think the sabbath is saturday.

    I have never read in Gods Word to go to church on Sunday, But I have read "On the seventh day God rested,and to Remember The Sabbath Day to keep it Holy".I have read, "Forsake not the assembling", and that "Faith comes from hearing, and hearing comes from the Word of God".In these Scriptures it is a guiding for us to do as Gods word reads.

    It does not say to worship on Sunday. The 4th commandment is remember the Sabbath, and to keep it holy. In Genesis it says the Sabbath is the seventh day of the week. Jesus worshiped in the synagogue on the sabbath. The sabbath is the 4th commandment, however it is also the second commandment God gave man in Genesis. The first one was to be fruitful and replentish the earth.

    "Attending church" is an odd way to get at the subject of public worship. If you change the question to gathering for worship I think it changes the whole conversation. Christianity is clearly meant to be communal. The notion of a single Christian who does not seek fellowship with others is foreign to the clear witness of Jesus and the early church. I have always liked the story of the woman at the well where Jesus speaks of the "day" that is "coming and now is" where worship is not location defined but spiritually defined and tested by truth. That is, "in spirit and in truth."


    Sunday is okay with me, but it could also be Tuesday.

    True, "it could also be Tuesday", in other words it could be any day. Here's the catch, if the sabbath is any day then no day is the sabbath. there's no sabbath. Now, remember is not what man say but what God's say.

    Church did not exist when the bible was written.

    I think churches did exist but they were called temples. Places of worship have existed since man invented religion.

    TO BRING CASH

    The Christian Scriptures simply say on the seventh day God rested. Which day that is is up for grabs for it is ever a realitive issue, not worth the time to debate. Let everyday be the seventh when honoring God the Father. Amen

    Think about this, Christ created the world back in Genesis (Col.1.16)He sets a pattern for mankind (Gen 2.1-3), he declares Himself as "Lord of that day" (Mar.2.28)He dies, resurects and does not say anything in relation to "Sunday", humm, could it be that He forgot? I doubt it, he is God!, But He gives a special message to John (book of Revelation)and what is HIS message, "Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth—to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people— 7 saying with a loud voice, “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.” Did you catch what HIS command is...Worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water! Now, how does Sunday observance accomplishs this? I do not know. I only know that out of the seven days that Christ used to create, He, Christ, only blessed, set apart, and santified the "space" of time that constituted this particular day-the seventh day! Now I worship My Redeemer for it takes a Creator to be able to Redeem! - God bless.

    I believe hearing and learning the word of God, along with corporate worship amongst other believers is powerful. I believe in the sabbath, however i believe anytime we worship corporately and sing praises as a group of believers God is pleased.

    Read Hebrews 10 vers 25
    In the New Testament the assemblies were held first day of the week : on Sundays
    Paul's letters are very clear in that
