Rituals “A ritual is a stereotyped sequence of activities involving gestures, words, and objects, performed in a sequestered place, and designed to influence preternatural entities or forces on behalf of the actors’ goals and interests.” Wikipedia
Traditions “A tradition is a belief or behavior passed down within a group or society with symbolic meaning or special significance with origins in the past.” Wikipedia
As Christians we (the people) are more apt to follow the traditions of man opposed to the traditions of God.
How many people do you think
actually know the reason we worship on Sunday? Even though the answer is documented history, most people will not research it. In 321 A.D. Emperor Constantine degreed Christians and non-Christians unite in worship by observing the day of the sun, referencing sun-worship which was established as a cult. Wikipedia
Therefore the tradition changed from Saturday worshipping God (son) to Sunday worship of god (sun).
What about Easter? How many celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ on Sunday, the first day of the week? Why? The KJV Bible reads: “The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.”
Or how about the fact that Jesus gave us one sign: “For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” Matthew 12:40
Jesus himself said he would be in the grave three days and three nights, but man wants us to believe Jesus was only in the grave two nights and one day. Can you count three days and three nights from Friday night (they call it Good Friday) to Sunday morning (they celebrate Easter Sunrise Service).
It was prophesied that Jesus would be cut off (die) in the midst (middle) of the week. Man says Jesus was crucified on Friday the day before the Sabbath. It is written: “And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself:…and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease,…” Daniel 9:26-27
Most people will agree Saturday is the seventh day of the week, which means most of us agree Saturday is the Sabbath Day but many still chooses to worship on the first day of the week, Sunday, the day man has chosen instead of Saturday, the day God commanded. Genesis 2
