Ha! I missed Mark for a while  :laughing7:
1 Timothy 2:3-4  ...God our Savior;  Who will have all men to be saved...
John 12:47  And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
Romans 4:5 But to the one who does not work, but believes in the one who declares the ungodly righteous ...

A poster on another thread, the topic of which was questioning the authenticity of the last 12 verses in the book of Mark, wrote that it doesn't really matter because there is no doctrinal teaching in Mark 16:9-20 that cannot be proved elsewhere in agreed Scripture.


I made the mistake of sticking my nose into the discussion by pointing out that actually there is a statement in verse 9, as the KJV and similar versions have it, that is used for a doctrinal teaching that is to be found nowhere else in Scripture. As the KJV translates it, it is the only place that puts the resurrection on the first day of the week. I then suggested that whenever the discussion of seventh day observance versus first day observance comes up, first day proponents usually use the idea of a first day resurrection to justify the change, and when questioned about the day of resurrection, quote Mark 16:9. The poster came back with: "Quote a published author who has done that." - I have not yet been able to come up with one.  Does anyone here know of one?

WhiteWings, you've studied this topic of the resurrection day.  Any thoughts? 

(Personally, I pretty much "esteem" each day the same.  "One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike."  Romans 14:5 )

This is a day that the Lord has made.  I will rejoice and be glad in it!   :dsunny:

WhiteWings,

I'm afraid I don't see how your comments are response to my request for an author.  I wonder if you might explain.

Hello rstrats!  :grouppray:

I would say that, since one day is not fundamentally different to another, that, in the end, the exact position that a special day is within the week is of relatively little significance. More significant would be, if it is necessary, the presence of a special day somewhere (perhaps undefined) within the week at all. This is then itself fulfilled by living in love and peace etc., and so ultimately love is the central ethic. :2c:

Blessings to everyone!
