    I have been a Baptist all my life and was talking to a friend of mine the other day and he told me of a group of Baptists that practice Saturday worship all most like Seventh Day Adventists, does anyone know of such a practicing group in the Midwest? Thanks for your help!!

    Hi, Janet. Welcome to the "Denominational Discussions" forum.

    There is a group of Baptists that hold to the sabbatarian viewpoint. They associate together in a group called Seventh Day Baptist General Conference. Their site will give history, locations, doctrine, etc. The first sabbatarian Baptists in the United States were a division in 1671 from the church at Newport, Rhode Island. So they have a long standing tradition that pre-dates the Seventh-Day Adventists by a number of years. Interestingly, one of the foundations setting up the beginning of the Seventh-Day Adventists was a calculation of the time of the return of Christ by a date-setting Baptist preacher named William Miller.

    Although not overall a large movement, Seventh-day Baptists have a strong following in the southern Wisconsin area of Milton and Janesville. Milton College in the city of Milton, Wisconsin was a Seventh-Day Baptist school and closed a number of years ago. :cool:

    Circuitrider,

    re: "Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come."

    And your point would be?

    The point seemed obvious to me.... :eek: :eek: ....Christians in the NT began meeting on the first day of the week (Sunday), and that was the time they would give to this benefit offering for the saints at Jerusalem. Paul commends such a meeting in the Corinthian church. :cool:

    Circuitrider,

    re: “The point seemed obvious to me.... ....Christians in the NT began meeting on the first day of the week (Sunday), and that was the time they would give to this benefit offering for the saints at Jerusalem. Paul commends such a meeting in the Corinthian church.”

    I assume that you think that 1 Corinthians 16:2 supports your notion that NT Christians observed the first day of the week for their day of rest and worship. However, there is nothing in the verse that indicates that. The text merely says that everyone should “lay by him in store” on the first day of the week. The New Swedish and Norwegian Bibles read: “At home by himself.” The Wemouth reads: “Let each of you put on one side and store up at his home”. Ballantine’s Translation reads: “Let each of you lay up at home”. The Syriac, on this passage reads: “Let every one of you lay aside and preserve at home”. And the New Catholic Edition of the Bible reads: “.......let each one of you put aside at home and lay up whatever he has a mind to”. This verse says nothing about going to church on Sunday or even assembling together on Sunday.

    Saturday? Sunday? Does it really matter which day you worship? Man is not made for Sabath Sabath is made for man. People are worshipping God in Spirit and truth that is all that matters. eh! ;)

    Circuit,

    I'm sorry, but I'm from that part of Wisconsin and have never heard of them, much less seen them. So there movement must not be that big. :confused:

    Also, the Sabbath wasn't mentioned in the Bible till long after the history of the Hebrews was established. And the Sabbath was set up for the Jews not the Gentiles. Much the same way circumcission was for the Jew, and not for us Gentiles. :cool:

    I'd never heard of these seventh day baptists until I stumbled upon them on the internet.

    Once I remember a preacher saying that if something is repeated again in the New Testament, from the Old, then the Lord is saying "Better listen up!"

    Almost all of the Ten Commandents are repeated again in the New Testament and that's why we should keep them today...Guess which one isn't repeated or mentioned in the New Testament? [#4]
