Rest

A comment i made on FB: In the New Covenant, Sabbath is no longer a question of conscience. The principle of rest remains, but our consciences are not tied to our “keeping” the Sabbath. This is why I asked, do you keep the Sabbath strictly according to stipulations in the Law of Moses? (not man-made traditions), and the answer is, No. So, if one thinks they are “keeping” the Sabbath Law, they are in fact violating it every time they do not keep it strictly according to the letter of the Law, and then they are sinning against their conscience. Point is, you don’t need to “keep it”. Just have one day a week rest, with a clear conscience. Sabbath means “rest”. So rest. Don’t make it into something else, or try to prove how righteous you are.
