One of the most common questions asked by non-Christians is, “Why do Christians worship on Sunday?” There are a few different reasons why Christians may choose to worship on Sundays.

Some Christians believe that Sunday is the day of Jesus’ resurrection, and so it is a day to celebrate and remember what Jesus did for us. Others believe that Sunday is a day of rest, and so it is a day to come together and worship God as a community.

Whatever the reason, Christians believe that Sunday is a special day to remember and celebrate God’s love for us. Worshipping on Sunday is one way that we can thank God for all He has done for us.

Is It Wrong for Christians to Worship on Sunday?

Some people believe that it is wrong for Christians to worship on Sunday, because the Bible says that the Sabbath is the day of rest. However, there is no specific command in the Bible that says we must worship on Sunday. In fact, the early Christians worshipped on a variety of days, including Sunday.

The reason why many Christians worship on Sunday is because it is the day of the Resurrection. On this day, Jesus Christ rose from the dead and conquered death. Because of this, we believe that Sunday is a special day to worship God.

If you have any questions about worshiping on Sunday, or any other day, talk to your pastor or another Christian leader. They can help you understand what the Bible says about worshiping on different days.

Is Sunday a Pagan Day of Worship?

Most people in the United States consider Sunday to be a day of rest and relaxation. For many, it is a day to sleep in, spend time with family, or go to church. However, there are some who believe that Sunday is actually a pagan day of worship.

The origins of Sunday worship can be traced back to ancient Babylon. The book of Genesis tells us that God created the world in six days and rested on the seventh. This seventh day was known as the Sabbath. In Babylon, the first day of the week was also considered to be a day of rest. It was called “the day of the Sun” or “Sunday.”

The Roman Emperor Constantine helped to solidify Sunday worship when he made it the official day of rest for the Roman Empire in 321 AD. Prior to this, many Christians worshiped on Saturday, the Jewish Sabbath. However, Constantine’s decree made Sunday the universal day of worship for Christians.

So, is Sunday a pagan day of worship? For many Christians, the answer is no. Sunday is a day to remember that God created the world and that we are to rest in Him. It is also a day to worship God and to fellowship with other believers. However, there are some who believe that Sunday worship is rooted in paganism.

What Is the True Day of Worship?

There are many different days that people throughout history have set aside as days of worship. The most common day of worship is Sunday, but there are also those who worship on Saturday and even on other days of the week. So, what is the true day of worship?

The answer to this question is found in the Bible. In the Old Testament, God commanded the people of Israel to worship on the Sabbath day. The Sabbath day is the seventh day of the week, and it was to be a day of rest and worship for the people of Israel.

In the New Testament, we see that Jesus and His disciples often worshiped on the Sabbath day. In fact, Jesus even said that the Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath (Mark 2:27). So, it is clear from the Bible that the true day of worship is the Sabbath day.

Now, there are some who believe that we are no longer required to worship on the Sabbath day since we are now under grace and not under the law. However, this is not what the Bible teaches. The Bible clearly commands us to keep the Sabbath day holy.

In fact, in Exodus 20:8-11, God says, “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.”

So, we see that the Sabbath day is a special day that we are to keep holy. It is a day for us to rest from our work and to worship God. If you have never kept the Sabbath before, why not start today? You will be blessed as you set aside this special day to rest and worship the Lord.
