Can the Sabbath be, and is the Sabbath indeed, observed? Christian discussion forums like BaptistBoard are the clear proof that this question tops the list, any list, of doctrinal and ethical issues in contemporary Christian and Biblical discourse. It is a subject for re-investigation and new exploration in the light of many recent developments in Christian scholarship, specifically ecclesiology and Biblical Inspiration, that no longer may be ignored or passed off as a joke and example in hypocrisy. I would start with asking, Is Jesus Christ the "One (who) is the only Lawgiver"? Or does the Old Testament have other gods or a godfather who had no Son? Or does God speak from two mouths in opposition with one another? And I would end with asking, Was Jesus Christ the Saviour from the beginning? Because, if, as the Bible says, satan "was a murderer FROM THE BEGINNING", could man, from the beginning, a) have redeemed himself through good works, or, b) could blood sacrifices atone for man's sin and reconcile him with the One Lawgiver? And I would conclude, It is not a matter of accepting or rejecting the Old Testament in Christian Faith; it is accepting or rejecting JESUS CHRIST in Old Testament Faith. Which I will not have, so help me God. And if it is JESUS CHRIST in Old Testament Faith, Old Testament Faith is nothing but the Christian Faith and the Christian Faith is nothing but Old Testament Faith REALISED. 'Realised', means, the ESSENCE PROVEN TRUE. In fact, the Essence, "The Substance which is CHRIST ... THEN THEREFORE OF SABBATHS' FEAST OF CHRIST." Colossians 2.
