Keep the Sabbath

Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. (ASV) (Exodus 20:8)

Six days thou shalt do thy work, and on the seventh day thou shalt rest; that thine ox and thine ass may have rest, and the son of thy handmaid, and the sojourner, may be refreshed. (ASV) (Exodus 32:12)

Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day is a sabbath of solemn rest, holy to Jehovah: whosoever doeth any work on the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. (ASV) (Exodus 31:15)

And Jehovah did that thing on the morrow; and all the cattle of Egypt died; but of the cattle of the children of Israel died not one. (ASV) (Leviticus 26:2)

Observe the sabbath day, to keep it holy, as Jehovah thy God commanded thee. (ASV) (Deuteronomy 5:12)

Ignore the Sabbath

One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let each man be fully assured in his own mind. (ASV) (Romans 14:5)

Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a feast day or a new moon or a sabbath day: (ASV) (Colossians 2:16)

The Problem

God commanded keeping the Sabbath but Paul says all days are alike.
