Discussion for Jeremiah 17

  • Sybil
    Of course it matters. The fourth commandment is the only one where God says "Remember" the Sabbath Day to keep it holy, six days shalt thou do all thy work, but the Seventh Day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. The Sabbath was not made for the Jews, as some people think. The Bible says, "The Sabbath was made for man". Not only that, the Sabbath was made even before there was any Jew.
