Don't Christians worship on Sunday to honor the first day of the week, the day Christ resurrected?

QADon’t Christians worship on Sunday to honor the first day of the week, the day Christ resurrected?
  • Nowhere in the Bible does it record that Jesus Christ replaced the seventh-day Sabbath with the first day of the week as a day of worship. Jesus did not instruct the disciples to worship on the first day of the week instead of the Sabbath.
  • We keep the Sabbath as a reminder of how God has delivered us from sin (Eze 20:12). It also signifies our future eternal rest (Heb 4:9-11).
  • Some commentators conjecture that the mention of the Lord’s Day (Rev 1:10) refers to the observance of Christ’s resurrection on the first day of the week. Neither John nor any other New Testament writer confirms this; nor does the Bible command worship on the first day of the week.
  • We cannot interpret the Bible based on what a certain event signifies, especially when the interpretation contradicts the commandment of God.
