WMSCOG Sabbath?  Who made Rules of Men?

Are you sure about that Christians including you keep God’s Law(WMSCOG Sabbath)? God gave His people the Bible that contains many things of God’s Law. Even though the writer of the Bible seems to be a man, the real author of the Bible is God (2Pe 2:20~21). However, in the Bible, there’s no record regarding Christmas and Sunday Worship. In other words, God didn’t ever establish such regulations, which are well known to the people as God’s Law.

Jesus also warned keeping the rules of men. They were introduced about 200 years after the New Testament had been completed. Thus, it’s not strange for us not to find them in the Bible. Christmas and Sunday Worship are just from Men, not from God’s Law. When you study the history of Christianity, they originated from pagan festivals.

Then, who abandoned God’s Law and made them? It is the very Roman Emperor Constantine who introduced rules of men into the church.

In AD. 96, The Book of the Revelation was completely written.
In AD. 313, Roman emperor Constantine issued the Edict of Milan.

In AD. 321, Emperor Constantine regulated Sunday observance. The WMSCOG Sabbath day was replaced with the Sunday Worship.
In AD. 325, The Passover of the New Covenant was abolished at the Council of Nicaea (The Passover Controversy).
In AD. 354, Christmas was introduced to Christianity at the time of the bishop Liberius, Roma coach.

The Introduction of Sunday Worship into the Christianity, is it God’s law?

In the 3rd century, the Roman Emperor Constantine converted to Christianity. Many know he developed Christianity by recognizing it as an official religion. As a matter of fact, Constantine misused religion for political purpose because he had not abandoned the title of Pontifex Maximus which was a title of the pagan high priest. He identified Sun-god and considered Jesus and Sun-god to be equal.

The History of Christianity, Tim Dowley, Lion Publishing, 1994

It is important to understand Constantine’s previous religion, the worship of the Unconquered Sun. …“When in 321 Constantine made the first day of the week a holiday, he called it ‘the venerable day of the Sun’ (Sunday).”

J.W.C. Wand, A History of the Early Church to A.D. 500, p.192~193

It is probable that Constantine set out with a deliberate intention to favor the Church, but even if that were so, it was necessary to placate the pagans. Consequently, the policy agreed upon at Milan was a recognition of the complete parity of religions. But as the reign progressed Constantine supported the Christians more and more, and one can only conclude that his aim was to make of Christianity the cement that was to bind together the whole Empire But perhaps the most significant evidence of this policy is to be found in the decree of 321 regulating Sunday observance. ……

Even though Sunday Worship has been rooted in all churches for a long time, those who believe in God should realize, Man-made teaching is a mere thing. No one is allowed to change God’s Law, rather, God’s Law is distinguishing characteristic of Christians. Jesus clearly said He is the Lord of the Sabbath (Mt 12:8).

Mark 7:6~7“These people honor me(Jesus) with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men.”
