Confused

I have been reading my bible alot lately and get really confused. I believe that God is the creator of the earth and that he sent Jesus to die for our sins. One of the things that I have a problem with is the church. Doesn't the bible say that you should attend "church" on the Sabbath or 7th day of the week? Well, isn't that Saturday? So why does everyone attend on Sunday, the 1st day of the week? What about the "feasts" that the bible talks about. Why don't we celebrate those? And where is the proof that Jesus was born on Dec. 25th? I can't find a date for his birth. So how did this come to be? How can I find a church that TEACHES what the Bible says and not society?

I am a Christian, and I keep the original Sabbath/Saturday (or at least I try, not easy in this society). Jesus kept all the original, biblical holidays as well, including all the laws and statutes of God. He did not put a tree in his livingroom and worshiped it. The bible says something about the devil will try to change the times of God, and I do believe that had something to do with the keeping of the Sabbath. The bible says to REMEMBER the Sabbath day, as if we would forget it - forget which day the Sabbath day is.

Ok being a pastor's daughter I have learned a lot about theology. I used to have the same questions. The book of Acts in the New Testamant is the book of the history of the church. It talks about meeting on the first day of the week. Although it also mentions meeting every day but it talks about the Apostles breaking bread on the first day of the week. This is interpreted to mean Communion or the Lord's supper. You can read about that in any of the gospels Matthew Mark Luke or John. My dad believes that because Jesus resurrected on the 3rd day which was on Sunday, that is why we worship on Sunday instead of Saturday. Also, my dad believes that Jesus was probably born in April. The passover lamb was sacrificed on it's first birthday. Since Jesus is referred to as the Lamb of God, our supreme sacrifice. He believes that Jesus was crucified on his birthday, the day of passover. December 25th is originally a pagan holliday. Look up about the origins of Christmas it has something to do with winter solstice. However many Christian's myself included observe Christmas.

It seems confusing, but it really isn't.<br />

The Old Testament was given to people in a certain time in a certain place. They had feasts and rituals relevant to that time. All of those things simply pointed to Christ though. In the New Testament, when Christ came, there is a new "law" that we have now to follow. It is the law of freedom through Christ, which he gives. <br />

Days of the week don’t matter.

Plus, for a large part of the world, the seventh day of the week is the Sunday, not Saturday as it is in America :)

Get your nose out of the book of flaws, and go directly to the source. You don't need religion to talk to god. Just an open line of communication.
