  1. What is your point with regard to the topic - "Good Friday"?
  2. But I'm still curious what your reasoning was for your need to quote me when your addition to the discussion dealt with John Young's comment?
  3. The topic doesn't need to be locked. It just needs the powers-that-be to delete all of the off topic comments.
  4. 1 Timothy115, re: "No, it also has to do with what day you worship the Lord." Again, the context of the whole chapter from start to finish has to do with regard to food practices. "Paul is writing about asceticism. Some in the church at Rome believed Christians should eat only vegetables. Paul calls these people 'weak in the faith' (verses 1-2). The stronger in faith know they could also eat meat. Nothing in God’s law prescribes vegetarianism. The stronger in faith knew they were free from non-biblical asceticism. A part of the controversy that had sprung up between the weak and the st
  5. To what "folly" are you referring? Please be specific. To whom are you referring?
  6. Hugh_Flower, re: "Why are you looking for a published author..." See the OP. re: "It seems like you would like to argue with them when you find them." No, not for the purpose of this topic. re: " Sunday seems like a good day of any to worship the Lord in fellowship as that was the day the Lord rose again." And that was the reason for starting this topic. See the OP. re: "Whose to say we should keep sabath?...Whose to say the day we are required to worship?...If sabath was still required, you would think it would be a very big deal to a
  7. 1Timothy115, re: "Ironside lived it..." I don't know what that means. re: "Now if you're looking for an answer to the person you originally encountered..." I am. re: "...you have plenty to present from previous person's comments." If there is, I haven't seen it. re: "If they don't care to agree after this why bother with it anyway." So far I haven't seen anything to take back to them. re: "[see Romans 14:5-6]" I don't understand what that has to do with it. The whole chapter is talkin
  8. re: "Mark is, first of all a VERY published author." I don't see where Mark argues for a change of observance from the seventh day of the week to the first day of the week due to the idea of a first day of the week resurrection. That is also the case with Matthew 28:1, Luke 24:1, and John 20:1. Also, I don't see where Ironside argues for the change either.
  9. Actually, he isn't. Paul doesn't use the idea of a first day of the week resurrection to justify a change of observance from the seventh day of the week to the first say of the week, nor uses Mark 16:9 to support a first day of the week resurrection.
  10. Leviticus 23:6 says : “And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread...” However, Matthew 26:17 says: “Now on the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover?” Any thoughts on the seeming discrepancy?
  11. I was just curious why you felt the need to quote me if you were going to comment on John Young's comment. Still am for that matter.
  12. Why did you quote my question to John Young and then comment on his comment regarding Passover?
  13. Perhaps someone new looking in may know of an author.
  14. So your support for a Wednesday crucifixion is that you agree with your belief that the crucifixion took place on Wednesday.
  15. Ukulelemike, re: "Well, what day is just prior to 'the first day of the week'?" So by "it" you're referring to the seventh day of the week. OK, thanks. BTW, what is your support for saying that the crucifixion took place on Wednesday?
  16. Ukulelemike, OK, so you explain the discrepancy by saying that the men made a mistake with their remark. Fair enough. re: "He could have resurrected just prior to the first day of the week, which would have made it the third day since He died..." To what day of the week is "it" referring?
  17. Bouncing Bill, Why did you quote my question to John Young and then comment on his comment regarding Passover?
  18. How do you reconcile that with Luke 24:21?
  19. robycop3, re: "There's simply no way to get three days & three nights from Friday to Sunday AM..." A couple of ways have been suggested that the "heart of the earth" is not referring to the tomb so that the arrest in the garden or the 3 hours of darkness in the afternoon could account for one of the three nights.
  20. Bouncing Bill, re: "No, no thoughts other than the NT writers never thought about it..." It just seems odd that something considered so important to Christian practice as the observance of the first day of the week in honor of the resurrection is ignored during the 50 plus years of New Testament writings.
  21. Bouncing Bill, re: " But we celebrate Christ on the day he rose." If you're referring to the 1st day of the week, any thoughts on why scripture is silent with regard to anyone doing that?
  22. Daughter: "I've just changed my major to philosophy." Father: "That's great because they just opened that new philosophy factory in town."
  23. Pastor Scott Markle, re: "The Day of Pentecost was the first day of the week." Which is an annual festival. I assumed SureWord was referring to weekly observances.
  24. What's the best size diameter for the holes?
