Colossians doesn't do away with any of the holy days of the Lord
Permalink   


Many Christians like to point to Colossians 2 (especially verse 16), to try and prove that the 7th day Sabbath is done away.
Strangely, many fellow Seventh-day Adventists point to the same text to try and prove that the holy convocations of the Lord (Feast days) are done away.
Are either of those valid interpretations of this text?

Please read the entire chapter of Colossians 2. You will notice that the phrase no man or any man, is referred to 4 times.
Someone who will:
1. beguile you
2. spoil you
3. judge you (verse 16)
4. beguile you

Dont you believe it makes sense to take it in context, and understand this as Dont worry about what non-christians think of you for following Jesus?

Jesus kept the 7th day Sabbath.
Jesus kept the holy convocations (Feast days).

So what WAS done away with at the cross?
The sacrifices and oblations passed away, per Daniel 9:27.
Nothing else.

Matthew 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

So until heaven and earth pass, neither the 7th day Sabbath, nor the holy convocations, are done away.

Lets follow Jesus perfect example, and keep not only his 7th day Sabbath holy, but also his Feast days.

Greetings my Brother!

While I agree that there are some inconsistencies in the way SDA's defend the 7th day Sabbath, I don't think this to be an irrefutable evidence that we should keep the Feast days.
