  • It is not I nor any religion who said so: Check your bible it is God who said it in Exodus 20:1-2t: And God spoke all these words: 2 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

Third commandment

  1. 1. Third Commandment:<br />REMEMBER TO KEEP HOLY THE <br />SABBATH DAY<br />(Exodus 20:8)<br />
  2. 2. <ul><li> The Sabbath is for the Lord and is set apart for the praise of God
  3. 3. Jesus explained that the Sabbath is made for man and not man for the Sabbath.
  4. 4. Adam and Eve, right after the 6th day, were commanded by God to take rest.
  5. 5. Our first day of the week is also Sunday which is for resting.</li></li></ul><li>SABBATH IS A DAY OF RESTING and NOT TO BE EQUATED with Saturday.<br />Like Jesus, before starting His ministry, He retreated in the desert for forty days to pray and fast.<br />
  6. 6. WHY THERE’S A SABBATH DAY?<br />
  7. 7. 1) JESUS ROSE FROM THE DEAD ON THE 1ST DAY OF THE WEEK, WHICH IS SUNDAY.<br />
  8. 8.
  9. 9. 2) THE EUCHARIST IS CELEBRATED WAY BACK IN THE EARLY CHURCH ON SUNDAY<br />“On the first day of the week when we grouped together and break bread”<br />(Acts 20:7)<br />
  10. 10.
  11. 11. 3) ST. PAUL ADMONISHED THE JEWS TO LEAVE THE JEWISH PRACTICE BEHIND<br />“You are observing days, months, seasons and years. I’m afraid on your account that I labored in vain”<br />(Gal. 4:10)<br />
  12. 12. 4) THE LORD GAVE THE SABBATH TO THE PEOPLE IN THE DESERT AFTER THEIR EXODUS FROM EGYPT IMMEDIATELY AFTER CREATION’S WORK<br />
  13. 13. 5) WHEN MOSES GAVE THE SABBATH COMMANDMENT, THERE WAS NO CALENDAR SYSTEM – ONLY A CYCLE OF SIX DAYS WORK AND ONE DAY REST.<br />
  14. 14. WORKS PERMITTED ON SUNDAY AND HOLIDAYS OF OBLIGATION ARE:<br />
  15. 15. SERVILE WORK (works of mercy)<br />LIGHT AND TRIFLING WORK<br />OCCUPATIONS OF INTELECTUAL NATURE<br />REASONABLE RECREATION<br />ATTEND AND ASSIST ON PUBLIC MASS<br />
  16. 16. SIN AGAINST THE THIRD COMMANDMENT:<br />1) Requiring others to perform servile work. The Christian allow his servants and cattles to rest on Sunday. <br /> (Exodus 10:10)<br />
  17. 17. 2) By carelessness about attendance in public worship. “What folly, remarks St. Francis of Sales, to turn day into night and night into day, and neglect one’s duties for frivolous amusement”<br />
  18. 18. 3) Indulging in diversions which are over fatiguing or which are sinful nature. St. Augustine opined “It is better that one is occupied with needle of filed-work on Sunday than indulge in vice”<br />
  19. 19. ^_* THE END *_^<br />
