Is Sunday a memorial of Jesus’ resurrection?

Should Christians worship on Sunday to honor Jesus’ resurrection?

If Christians accept the Bible as their sole guide into all truth, then they must accept the Bible memorial of the resurrection of Jesus rather than a memorial set apart only by tradition and sentimentalism. In the Bible, baptism (not Sunday) is given to commemorate the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.

The evidence of Paul

Paul says the following, “Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection” (Romans 6:3-5).

Sunday or baptism?

Do you have two birthdays in one year? Of course not. Neither does the Bible set apart two memorials of the resurrection of Jesus. The Word of God commands one, and only one memorial, and that is baptism. The acceptance of Sunday rest as commemorative of the resurrection is without Scriptural authority, but comes from the com­promise of the Christian church with pagan sun worship in the fourth century. The Bible and history are absolutely clear and harmonious on this question.

"Be not deceived." Once again, the majority of Christians are wrong in substituting Sun­day for the Bible Sabbath.
