This is more of a poll than anything. I just read a very informative book called
Calendar Fraud, tracking the destruction of biblical Sabbath
found for free, download here: www.thechronicleproject.org...
click on the book graphic
I must admit, I was completely uninformed about how dates for both the Jewish Sabbath and Christian Sabbath were actually fixed to dates on the Gregorian calendar around 300 ad, rather than following the dates listed in the old testament using the Hebrew calendar based on the lunar cycle.
According to the information in the book, a month began with the appearance of the new moon, which was a day of festivity, then six days of work, then Sabbath. There were four Sabbaths in a month, then another new moon on either the 29th or 30th of each month.
That means that actual Sabbath would be on different days if you put it on the Gregorian calendar as the two calendars do not mesh. Even the idea of Jesus on Sunday would be bogus.
The law of Moses states that if you don't keep Sabbath, you are to be cut off from Israel.
If our leaders did this knowingl what the law said, have they actually cut off all of the Jews from God?
So my question is simple, did you know, because I didn't.

The same law also tells you not to work every 7th year.

If you have studied religion for any decent length of time, you would know, the Jews and the Christians fight over one thing and one thing only. The proper day of worship.
Jews, worshiping, El, or Saturn, worship on Saturdays. The Christians, worshiping the Sun of God, worship on Sundays. Simple as that.

Ah thanks, now I understand what you are saying
So there was also 7 days in the calender that the jews were using previous to the roman one?

Why do you suppose that the Hebrews chose to use a lunar calender? Sumeria and Egypt were using solar calenders. Solar calenders were more practical than lunar calenders for predicting seasons, absolutely critical to farming and agriculture.
The solar calender correctly divided the year into 365 days, (coincidentally, the age of Enoch) and scientifically predicts the orbit of the earth around the sun, rather than visa versa. (again, in the Book of Enoch)
Is the lunar calender a throw back to the days of Babylonian captivity? Is the calender representative of homage to some lunar deity? Do you think that GOD, "The Most High" gave a lunar calender to the Hebrews, and designated a Sabbath accordingly? Or, could they have been deceived into believing that lunar influences are more important that solar influences?
The lunar calendar was used so that no matter what happened, once a month when the new moon was seen, a person would know that it was a new moon day, then six work days, then Sabbath. Each month you could calculate Sabbaths that fell on the 8th 15th 22nd and 29th of the lunar month. You cannot do this with a solar calendar. Put this against the Gregorian calendar, and yesterday Nov 8th was the actual Sabbath as this month the lunar matched the Gregorian. The new moon will be on the 16th, so after that they don't match again.
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

The corrected Hebrew can be found here
16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
