Why do Christians attend Church on Sunday rather than on Saturday, the original Sabbath?

Firstly, because two major events of the Christian faith took place on a Sunday, the resurrection of Christ and the coming of the Holy Spirit and secondly, to show clearly the change from the Old Law to the New Law of Christ. Christ said to the Church in the person of the Apostles: "Whatever you shall bind upon earth shall be bound in heaven also." (Matt. 18:18, Matt. 16:19). By the use of this power the Christian Sabbath was moved from Saturday to Sunday.     Return to Faith Matters
