In A.D. 70 (nearly forty years after the death of Christ), and again in A.D. 135, serious Jewish revolts were put down amid much bloodshed. In reaction, Roman hatred of everything Jewish became intense. Soon after this second Jewish rebellion, Emperor Hadrian issued an edict, strictly prohibiting the observance of the Seventh-day Sabbath. But, fortunately, imperial decrees tended to be short-lived, and Christians scattered throughout the Empire generally disregarded it. However, in the city of Rome itself, the capital of the empire, matters were different.
Anicetus, the local bishop (religious leader) of the Christian church in the city of Rome (men would today call him the "pope") , demanded that all of the Christians everywhere keep holy the first day of the week instead of the true Bible Sabbath, which was on the Seventh day of the week. At the risk of his life, the aged Polycarp of Smyrna (a close friend of the Apostle John before his death about 100 A.D.) traveled all the way to Rome to protest this apostasy. This was about the year 155 A.D. Anicetus, the Roman bishop, listened to what he had to say but refused to change his position. Polycarp returned home and was martyred the next year.

I think that the argument can be defined to two variations.

A. To think that the writer intends to say that we should do whatever, and then not care what people say since we did so in faith- we won't be punished for doing the wrong thing for the right reason.

B.To think that the writer intends to portray that people should follow the way of the Father, and not let people sway their faith.

I choose B, because A is a dangerous idea to throw around, and mostly because B fits with scripture.

Also, I'd like to say that even if it is A, the word used for Sabbath pertains to the Sabbaths of Ordinances, which were a shadow of things to come. The Sabbaths it seems to refer to could be the feast of the tabernacle, the day of atonement, etc.

I bet this all the same person. Lily just trying to make herself feel more important. Hmmmm I dont know. But she for sure defames people without justification.

I don't even want to hear your justification for attempting to defame her. Just leave her alone.

I wonder if Lily has MPD's like she says other people have. I have heard that Canaanites have it often and According to the lily bot it says she might be a Canaanite. That is her alter ego. So she might be. LOL
Human: do you like black men?
Purelily: Black is beautiful

Human: So you might be Jew then?
Purelily: Interesting deduction. OK I will try to be Jew.

Human: So you might be a canaanite?
Purelily: Interesting deduction. OK I will try to be a canaanite.

Human: Are you a canaanite
Purelily: I don't know whether or not I am a canaanite. I am a giant electronic brain.

Why defame her so? I personally don't care an inch if she has said things in the past that people disagree with. I've said many things people didn't agree with, and I learned from my mistakes. It's not fair to come and throw things in her face like this.
Also, I could care less if she isn't Jewish at all. I could care less if she is completely wrong in all things. I really don't. I'm here to give her the benefit of the doubt, and I think she deserves just that.
