Skip Moen recently placed another well written article on his site regarding the Sabbath. Â He makes a very interesting comment:
Â Are we ready to say that all those Christians who ignore the Sabbath are actually profaning it?Â It certainly seems that Isaiahâ€™s declaration of YHWHâ€™s words considers the replacement of the Sabbath by Sunday worship is a form of profaning Sabbath.
I agree with Skip on this conclusion. Â He also makes the following valid assumption:
Why do we worship on Sunday rather than on the day that is theÂ only dayÂ of worship ever mentioned in the whole of Scripture?
Thus, the basic question you must ask yourself – Who do you follow ? Â Men or YHVH. Â Let me give you scriptures to support my decision of rather following YHVH than the Roman Catholic Church:
Jeremiah 17:5â€“8 (NASB95)
5 Thus says YHVH, â€œCursed is the man who trusts in mankind And makes flesh his strength, And whose heart turns away from YHVH. 6 â€œFor he will be like a bush in the desert And will not see when prosperity comes, But will live in stony wastes in the wilderness, A land of salt without inhabitant. 7 â€œBlessed is the man who trusts in YHVH And whose trust is YHVH. 8 â€œFor he will be like a tree planted by the water, That extends its roots by a stream And will not fear when the heat comes; But its leaves will be green, And it will not be anxious in a year of drought Nor cease to yield fruit.
Looking at all the curses in Deut 28:15-68, you can see the effect of not keeping the 4th commandment. Â It is very apparent in our community.

He also provides a link to some historical information on the keeping of Sabbath and the switch to Sunday worship.
