The commonly held belief in many Christian circles is that the seventh day Sabbath has been done away with and replaced with Sunday as a day of worship. Many have been taught that the 10 Commandments, including the 4th Commandment, were established for the first time at Mt. Sinai. But are these statements true? What day did God bless and set apart as holy time for us to rest and worship Him? Was the seventh day Sabbath established at the beginning of creation and does it remain in effect for Christians who follow in the steps of Jesus Christ?
