Feast Days And Sabbaths

Q. My question is: Why do we no longer celebrate The Feast Days, and Sabbath? If I am correct, Jesus freed us from this part of the old covenant, however many say we are not exempt from honoring them. Also many say we should still have Saturday as our worship day rather than Sunday.

A. People who say these things apparently don’t realize that the Church and Israel are two separate entities. As such we worship the Lord in our way and they worship Him in theirs. That doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate the feasts, or worship on Saturday, it just means we’re not required to.

In Romans 14:5 Paul wrote, “One man considers one day more sacred that another, another man considers every day alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind.”

And in Colossians 2:16 he said, “Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration, or a Sabbath day.”
