Click to ViewThe 10 commandments and the Sabbath were given ONLY to Jews, but Sabbatarians falsely state that the Ten Commandments are for all mankind from Adam to the second coming.

Actual Sabbatarian argument: "The 10 commandments are for all mankind and are God's universal eternal law!"


A. If the Sabbath law was a moral law intended for all mankind, then:

  1. Why did God NEVER charge the Gentiles with breaking it.
  2. Interesting that God charges the Gentiles many times for breaking all the 9 moral commandments on the tablets of stone, but NEVER ONCE says anything about breaking the Sabbath!
  3. This proves it is not inherently moral but just another ceremonial law given ONLY TO THE Jews!

B. The very words of the ten commandments clearly tells us that the commandments were for the Jewish people ONLY!

  1. God never brought me or my ancestors out of Egypt! Ex 20:2 "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery."
  2. The Lord has not given me the promised land of Canaan! Ex 20:12 "Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the Lord your God gives you"
  3. Since the Sabbath is a sign between God and fleshly Israel, there is nothing requiring non-Jews to keep it! (Ex. 31:13,17; Ezek. 20:12, 20)
  4. If it was intended for all mankind, then why specifically say "strangers within your gates". Obviously the Gentiles (strangers) were never required at any point in earth history to keep the Sabbath! The Bible and all known history prove this true!

C. Imagine the 10 commandments were a postal letter with not mailing address. The post office could easily determine that the intended recipient of the letter was Israel.

C. Impossible for those living in the arctic circle to keep the Sabbath: "sunset to sunset".

  1. A one year long Sabbath every seven years?
  2. Obviously God never intended anyone but the Jews living geographically in Palestine to keep the Sabbath?

D. Here are two comments from our history archive that prove the common view between 150 and 200AD was that the Patriarchs never kept the Sabbath!
