What about the Sabbath? A response to a legalist

From a practical sense, I dont know ANYONE, that works seven days a week. The five day work week , which most people work, is well within the bounds of Bills so called law. I work many weekends and on Saturdays also, but normally get at least two days off a week, so there aren’t as many lawbreakers out there as you have declared Bill.

But by your logic and declaration, our Doctors, surgeons, emergency room personel, firefighters, policemen, prison guards, military and others that perform vital and lifesaving roles in our society are all “lawbreakers” because the most often work on your so called sabbath day. Ridiculous.

Jesus and Paul warned us about folks like you. You see the letter of the law, but have no spiritual discernment of it, and would have others under the same yoke of legalism as you.

Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Col 2:16.
And I knew you’d never answer the question because its a loaded question, and you knew that of course. (Ie: were the priests lawbreakers? They worked on Saturdays and took off on Sundays at the end of their course in the Temple)

I learned that from Jesus, it’s essentially the same question he asked the pharisees about the sabbath, who like you, refused to answer.
