Today, 11:27 AM
//8 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to theLord your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates. 11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.//
I believe the good and necessary consequence for observance on the first day of the week is sufficient, but even if not, how in the world does this just go away? I could understand saying its the seventh day, or that you just have to pick a day, but I can't fathom how you could look at the reason God gave that law and still say we can just totally ignore it.
However, since the sabbath was a day of holy convocation (worship) and the apostles worshipped on the Lord's Day (and also Isaiah 58 refers to the sabbath as "my" holy day) there's a clear good and necessary consequence that the sabbath should be observed the first day of the week. Of course if baptists were good with good and necessary consequence, they would also have their whole households baptized.
