What Am I?

Greetings: Often times I get the question, “What are you?” Now, I know what some of you are thinking when I bring this up and looking in the mirror every day I can understand why you might be thinking in that manner. All kidding aside, what I’m referring to is our belief and how to describe ourselves as believers. Most folks want a description like Protestant, Catholic, or Jewish but we keep the Sabbath and Gods laws but we aren’t Jewish. This inevitability comes up when talking to someone of different but worldly views and they will ask “What are you?” expecting a short answer. It has been a challenge for Gods people to find that elusive short answer at least as long as I have been in Christ’s church. “I’m a Sabatarian” is my common reply today, and we who follow the will of God and keep God’s Holy law and commandments. “What is a Sabatarian?” is the usual next question. A Sabatariarn is a person that loves God, and wishes to be a part of the Kingdom of Christ. I throw Jesus and Christ in occasionally to confuse them because many have the belief since we are keepers of the Sabbath we must be Jewish, therefore don’t believe in Jesus Christ. It’s almost overwhelming at times listening to peoples questions about ones belief, even when that belief is based entirely upon the Bibles instructions. It would be nice to sit down one day with our many detractors and compare notes, “let’s start with the Sabbath”, I would say. The next statement would not be any kind of proof coming from the words of Christ, or any kind of legitimate scriptural proof, but the usual comment, “The law is done away”. You come to a very quick conclusion; you might as well be holding a conversation with a fence post because there is no reasoning with them. The conversation is over at this point, because if one truly believes the law of God is done away, how can we teach them that Christ is the God of the entire bible, and he is the law we must follow. I’m a Sabatarian, Christ was a Sabatarian, isn’t that in its self good enough, why would any sane Christian believing person want to be different from Christ? It is always dangerous to try and be different, remember the first being that wanted to be different. Satan isn’t at all like Christ; he is the anti-christ and rejects the laws of Christ; so, I guess he isn’t a Sabatarian either.

One thought on “What Am I?

  1. "But you may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify." Quoted from "The Faith of our Fathers" by Cardinal James Gibbons Archbishop of Baltimore 1877-1921It is definitely dangerous to be different from Christ, yet the Great Deciever has done his job well. Whispering to all the world that phrase from the beginning of mankind, "You shall not surely die!"God Blessed the Sabbath day!
