Episode 21.7: The Lord’s Day


What is the “law of nature”? How is it being used here in this paragraph? Where do we find the Sabbath command in the Bible? Can you explain: positive, moral, and perpetual? What does the Confession mean when it says “binding all men in all ages”? What significance did the Sabbath have in the old covenant? How do we know the Sabbath changed to the first day of the week? Why is it called the “Lord’s Day”? How do you deal with passages like Romans 14 and Colossians 2? How do we know we’re to continue observing the Lord’s Day until the end of the world? Tune in as Nathan, Shawn, Joel, and Kyle discuss WCF 21.7:

As it is of the law of nature that, in general, a due proportion of time be set apart for the worship of God; so, in his Word, by a positive, moral, and perpetual commandment, binding all men in all ages, he hath particularly appointed one day in seven for a Sabbath, to be kept holy unto him: which, from the beginning of the world to the resurrection of Christ, was the last day of the week; and, from the resurrection of Christ, was changed into the first day of the week, which in Scripture is called the Lord’s day,c and is to be continued to the end of the world, as the Christian Sabbath.
