    Gerhard, the contextual implication is that one should not be judged by how/when he keeps the sabbath or feast days. If one wants to observe the sabbath on Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday, or whatever day, that is immune from judgement by others. I presume that it also referrs to how one observes the sabbath (we're called to rest one day in seven, but what constitutes rest to one individual may not necessarily be rest to another).

    Just my $.02

    The Christian sabbath is salvation in Christ. Nothing more. Nothing less. Consider Hebrews 4.

    The observance of the Sabbath is the only one of the Ten Commandments not re-commanded in the New Testament.

    With the coming of Christ, the OT law was fulfilled. Thus, we are no longer under the Law, but grace.

    In Christ,

    I don't know where you got this, so called, interpretation from, but it appears to be diametrical opposed to what the Bible says.

    Col 2:16-17
    16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
    17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
    (KJV)

    Although you are wrong that the 4th is the only Commandment not 'repeated', I agree with you in principle - the NT contains NO formal, 'official' Law and is not meant to. Jesus Christ has become the Ultimate Law to the believer.
    I believe though that no disagreement exists, no contradiction, but harmony between the Law written on stones and THE Law, Jesus Christ written on the table of the heart. Otherwise God would be divided against Himself, seeing the OT Law was written by Himself and that by His Holy Spirit - the Finger of God (through Whom He drives out the devils of sin), while the NT Law was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and raised by the same Spirit.
    Now I daresay Hebrews 4:9 is as perfect a Commandment given to keep the Sabbath - "Seventh Day" of which is written twice in the context (4-5) - as can be. But Jesus our Norm and Commandment in conduct and Faith, and the Apostles and His Church (His Body) are the Law of the Sabbath Day thrice! The Church denying this fact is simply disobedient and "through unbelief" won't accept God's Rest as the Sabbath serves and proclaims it.
    Gerhard.
