SDA's you are wrong! Saturday Sabbath & 10 Commandments are for Jews (Gospel of Jesus)

SDA's you are wrong! Saturday Sabbath & 10 Commandments are for Jews
Also, the early church baptized entire households, including Infants - in obedience to Jesus.

Of course the 10 Commandments are written in a mature Christian's heart. BUT, FAITH and trust in Jesus set Christians free from the Laws of Moses.

WE WERE TOLD TO FOLLOW BOTH APOSTOLIC TRADITION & SCRIPTURE:

On Pages 98 and 99 of Father Cedric's above book Referenced in the thread below this, he wrote.

"I believe that mature followers of Jesus are those who genuinely like and care for others and follow a well-formed conscience. They do the right thing even when the wrong thing is happening to them. They do the right thing because it is right even though there seems to be no immediate reward or pleasure. They do the right thing even when no one is watching. Integrity is forged behind closed doors as well as in the open.

St. Paul the Apostle wrote a stirring letter to the churches of Galatia. His letter had to do with the freedom from the laws of Moses and liberty in Christ. He talked a lot about how Jesus had come to make us right with God through faith. "For Freedom Christ has set us free." (Gal. 5:1) The law, rules and regulations no longer bind us. Our faith in Jesus justifies us. Included in chapter 5 of this liberating letter is a little known but crucial verse, "For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision or uncircumcision is of any avail, but faith made effective through love." (Gal. 5:6)"

Seventh Day Adventists are confounding unaware Christians over the Saturday versus Sunday Sabbath issue. Is it a "recipe for success" for Seventh Day Adventists? Is this "cloudy" teaching swelling SDA ranks? Doesn't the Bible tell us in a straight forward way that the Saturday Sabbath was given specifically to the Jews as a reminder of the Exodus (Exodus 31:16-17 & Deuteronomy 5:15)? There is no mention of a Sabbath as being given to Christians in the New Testament. Sure, Jesus kept the Saturday Sabbath. But Jesus was an observant Jew who was under the Jewish "Law".

Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. 2 Thessalonians 2 verse 15

Epiphanius of Salamis
"It is needful also to make use of tradition, for not everything can be gotten from sacred Scripture. The holy apostles handed down some things in the scriptures, other things in tradition" (Medicine Chest Against All Heresies 61:6 [A.D. 375]).

Thus Paul tells the Corinthians, "I commend you because you remember me in everything and maintain the traditions even as I have delivered them to you" (1 Cor. 11:2), and he commands the Thessalonians, "So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter" (2 Thess. 2:15). He even goes so far as to order, "Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you keep away from any brother who is living in idleness and not in accord with the tradition that you received from us" (2 Thess. 3:6).

There is no mandatory Sabbaths, holy days, or mandatory dietary restrictions in Christianity!
Keep in mind as you read Scripture that Jesus was speaking specifically to the Jews, as it was His entire mission - "to the lost sheep of Israel". Jesus was an observant Jew... He was actually directing his comments to the Jews. And yes, Jews are still under the Old Testament Law, as was Jesus (a Jew Himself). Yet, Jesus is the Lord of the Sabbath, who set us free by His suffering and death. Paul told us we are to honor God every day and just not on Saturday or other holy days...

After the Jews rejected their own Messiah, Jesus did something different or new - as was foretold by the prophets. He gathered to Himself us/the Gentiles. The New Testament carries NO, not one of the legalities of the Old Testament. Faith and Trust in Jesus, loving God with all our hearts -- and our neighbors as ourselves, and repentance of our sins is what the New Testament (something new that the prophets foretold) is all about...

Colossians 2-14:
Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

Ephesians 2-15:
Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

ARE YOU CIRCUMCISED? IF NOT. WHY NOT?
If you were under the Old Testament Law then disobeying even one iota of that Law is cause for spiritual death. Why does the congregation at the link you provided pick & choose regarding Saturday Sabbath and circumcision? In reality, under the Old Testament "Law", to so much as switch on a light switch is working on Saturday. Walking more than 1/4 mile from your home is also work. So is cooking a meal or washing your dog or kids.

Have you ever asked why Jesus is often seen walking on Saturday in corn fields, and doing most of His good "works" like miracles on Saturday? He is the Lord of the Sabbath who was against these "legalities". Look at it this way. Also, because of Jesus you can enjoy a pork chop, a hot dog, Italian sausage, and shellfish, that the Jews who are still under "The Law" cannot eat. But these Sabattarians don't tend to submit to either the dietary laws or the circumcision requirement of "The Law". Why is that? Like Saturday Sabbath, circumcision is a covenant between God and the Hebrew/Jewish people. Circumcision is an everlasting covenant between God and Abraham, and his male descendants.[Gen 17:9-14]

The Mosaic Covenant, beginning in Exodus 19-24, contains the foundations of Torah. In this covenant, God promises:

To make the children of Israel His special possession among all people if they obey God and keep his covenant [Exo 19:5]

To make the children of Israel a kingdom of priests and a holy nation[Exo 19:6]

To give the children of Israel the Sabbath as the permanent sign of this covenant [31:12-17]

To preach that the Saturday Sabbath is for Christians is to preach that the Lord's Sacrifice on the cross did not make us free from the legalities of the Old Testament Law. "IF RIGHTEOUSNESS COULD BE GAINED THROUGH [KEEPING] THE LAW, CHRIST DIED FOR NOTHING!" (Gal. 2:21)

Scripture for Sunday Worship:
Passages of Scripture such as Acts 20:7, 1 Corinthians 16:2, Colossians 2:16-17, and Revelation 1:10 indicate that, even during New Testament times, the Sabbath is no longer binding and that Christians are to worship on the Lord's Day (Sunday) instead.
