Remember the Sabbath, to Keep It Holy

Filed under: Faith,Family,Housekeeping & Maintenance — Sisyphus @ 8:08 pm

I won’t be posting on Sunday.  I never do.  We aren’t supposed to work on the Sabbath, and blogging is a form of work.  I consider such activity to be sinful.  I will still moderate comments on the Sabbath, but I won’t be responding to them until Monday morning. 

 If you don’t share my religious faith, and feel that defying the Sabbath is the appropriate thing to do, I wanted to make sure that you didn’t feel that I was neglecting to reply to you.  Even though you’re sinners now, you may repent yourselves later.  I love you all, and I’ll try not to be too judgmental just because you’re foolish enough to tempt your own sin-soaked demise by violating one of the Ten Commandments.  We all have our time in the depths.  As a former Democrat, I understand that sometimes you can squander years of your life on truly idiotic beliefs.

 That’s all from me, for now.  I’ll see you in Church tomorrow, hopefully!

  1. Millions of stores are open on Sunday (even Christian stores). The Bible says anyone who works on Sunday shall be put to death (Exodus 31:15). So we should kill numerous people for working? To support their family? That really seems like a loving God to me….

  2. Come on dude, you are pushing it. You want this to play out over the whole year, not blow your cred in two weeks. Easy, turbo!

  4. I can’t say I’m a big Brownback supporter. In My opinion, he’s a nut, esecially when he gets on the subject of immigrants. I’m pretty sure I told you guys once, “Do not mistreat an alien or oppress him, for you were aliens in Egypt. … If you do and they cry out to me, I will certainly hear their cry.” But hey, when do you ever listen to me?

  5. I love this website! Those people who use Biblical quotations (reflecting the state of scientific knowledge 2,000 years ago) while ignoring all later scientific knowledge to try to understand the world are parodied here.

    What’s even more laughable is that real people are drawn to this site and actually post on it, showing blatantly in those posts just how illogical their thinking is. And then they still never have a clue about what they are revealing about themselves!

    I feel so sorry for them & of course at the same time so scared about the future of the US, as most of the Biblical literalists seem to be from the US.

    EEWWWW!

  6. What if this site isn’t a joke!
    God forbid.

    Oh, by the way God, I hate to be the one to break it to you but you are dead.

  7. You’re pushing the envelope of credibility. You don’t know Jonathan Swift but your nom du net is Sisyphus? I don’t think a devout Christian like yourself should choose a godless heathen sinner like Sisyphus as your net persona. You should be Constantine or something appropriate.

  8. You are quoting the old testament, and in the OT, the sabbath is on saturday, not sunday.

  9. I am mystified that anyone could have enough time on their hands to keep on building, day after day, such an elaborate spoof of the Moral Majority. Whoever you are, take a bow. Then take a rest: you’ve made your point.

  10. I really appreciate this, Sisyphus. (For what it’s worth, I don’t consider it labor to post on blogs on the Sabbath!)

    I just got back from morning Mass. I think I’m going to say a Novena for Brownback.

  11. Sabbath is the seventh day. Sunday is the first.

  12. Hmmm….I only clicked the link to this blog because it was listed on the top blogs this morning at WordPress.

    I think you ought to know that the Sabbath is from sundown Friday night til sundown Saturday. Not Sunday. Nothing in the bible ever says anything about punishing those who work on Sunday.

    Which doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take a day of rest, mind you, but no one will be put to death for working today.

  13. Hey Sisy, I thought you were some kind of Jeebus freaks at this here blog, until I realized this is a parody site. Keep up the good work, I loves me some satire.

  14. Does Mr. Brownback plan to take Sundays off as well?

    Me, dead? Why, I’ve never felt better in My life. You’re crazy, Nietzsche! Oh man, I slay Myself…

  19. I hope you’re taking this to its logical conclusion and demanding that all TV, radio, stores, emergency services, police departments, hospitals, power generating stations, and so on also shut down on Sundays. Or Saturdays.

  20. “I will still moderate comments on the Sabbath, but I won’t be responding to them until Monday morning.”

    Isn’t this working on the Sabbath?

  21. Perhaps if you insist on following Jewish Law of the Old Covenant, you should also leave the Sabbath Day as it is under Jewish Law–on Saturday.

    Sunday is the first day of the week in the Bible, not the last.

    Maybe Christianity shouldn’t be about a moralistic adherence to a commandment which is not given to the people of the New Covenant (a.k.a. Christians) and more about an obedient relationship with God’s son.

    I don’t mind if you choose not to work on Sunday, if you feel so convicted. But I also fear you draw a sense of righteousness from your “good deed.”

  22. You wicked mockers. We speak the truth and you call it parody because you cannot see the truth.

  23. I’d like a little feedback on my idea for Senator Brownback’s running mate: Rick Santorum!

    Brownback-Santorum, it just sort of rolls off the tongue, waht?

  28. The Christian Sabbath is on Sunday. Unless one is involved in a vital, life-saving occupation such as hospital/power plant workers, police, military, etc., one should take Sunday off. I don’t approve of stores being open on Sunday, and I don’t approve of non-Christians who try to tell me that the Sabbath is on Saturday. That was the old Sabbath, but He rose on Sunday and that’s when Christians celebrate it.

    Santorum would make a very nice running mate for Brownback. Politically, it would be tough for him, though. He doesn’t have any political clout anymore, since he’s no longer a Senator. I don’t see it happening, but I certainly wouldn’t be averse to it.

  30. The Sabbath is Sunday. Anyone who says otherwise hates Christianity.

  31. So Sisy,
    you think all these preachers should stop working on sundays?
    And of course everybody at the power and water plants, telephones, firedept., police army in Irak, hospitals……..
    So we go back to the year 0?

  32. “The Christian Sabbath is on Sunday. Unless one is involved in a vital, life-saving occupation such as hospital/power plant workers, police, military, etc., one should take Sunday off. I don’t approve of stores being open on Sunday, and I don’t approve of non-Christians who try to tell me that the Sabbath is on Saturday.”

    Aaaah. So you choose which parts of the Old Testement to follow and which to ignore. Good to know.

    “That was the old Sabbath, but He rose on Sunday and that’s when Christians celebrate it.”

    1) Good FRIDAY – the day he died.
    Now, he rose from the grave 3 days later. Let’s count now children, shall we?
    Friday +1=Saturday
    Friday +2=Sunday
    Friday +3=Monday

    Unless that year there was some leap-day between Saturday and Sunday, then this is the real reason why we have an Easter MONDAY. Right?

    God’s word is immutable, so who is his son to change it? If God said the sabbath is Saturday, and Jesus says it’s Sunday (which he never did. Remember: Jesus was Jewish, therefore celebrated the sabbat on Saturdays like everyone else at the time), God wins.

  33. robd- Learn to read. Then go and read what I wrote in Comment #28. Thank you.

    “God’s word is immutable, so who is his son to change it? If God said the sabbath is Saturday, and Jesus says it’s Sunday (which he never did. Remember: Jesus was Jewish, therefore celebrated the sabbat on Saturdays like everyone else at the time), God wins.”

    Friday counts as one of the days, first of all. Secondly, the Law was Fulfilled by Jesus Christ. That means the Sabbath changes, too.

    Don’t take my word for it, though. Go ask your priest about it. He should confirm what I said.

  34. “Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish aught from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God.” Deuteronomy 4:2.

    “Every word of God is pure. … Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.” Proverbs 30:5, 6.

    So Jesus fulfilled which law again?
    Cite passage and verse please.

  35. The problem is, even if this particular blog is satire, there are people out there who *actually believe* what the site has to say. Some of them are probably commenting here with all the seriousness they have to muster. There’s simply no way to tell. That there are people in the world this close-minded is frightening.
