    Are there any theists here who keep the Sabbath or a Sabbath or any particular day as more holy than any other?

    If so, why and in what way do you keep it holy?

    yes i keep sunday as a holy day.. i think it should be a day to keep the faith and spend time with your family. sadly i look around and most view it as a day to get extra wages, or a normal day to go shopping.

    The majority of people in the UK are 'non-religious'.
    So why would you be surprised or concerned that that majority chooses not to waste a day every week
    worshiping a god they don't believe in?

    I agree with you.

    Right now my job requires me to work every other weekend. It is mandatory. The extra wages are nice, but I would rather be home.

    Romans 14:5 One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.

    Mark 3:4 And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace.

    Is it the case that you dont 'keep the faith' [whatever you mean by that], or dont spend time with your family on the other six days of the week ?

    its my belief six days work is your priority, but by family i mean mother, sisters, brothers,etc, not just children, which would be with you in the same home.
    keep the faith is worship god and yes i do. thankfuly ive had jobs at times i could do this. Unlike some who have jobs where you work some weekends,

    Christians are no longer under compulsion to keep that law but it has very wise and Godly wisdom behind keeping one day to not only rest but to have a day that one can do his utmost to do things on a spiritual level that one can't do the rest of the week.
    And has been mentioned it is a day to share with the family and even better to do that also within a spiritual context.

    It is my view that the Sabbath was created for man, not the other way around. At the time the Sabbath was made a Mosaic law, men were basically slaves throughout the world working 24/7. I would even go further to say that if it had not been for the Mosaic law of recognizing the Sabbath, we may not have the "weekend" in modern times.

    For me, it is not the specific day that is holy, it is the recognition that even God needed a "day of rest", so man should as well. It is a time of reflection and a break from the curse of sin which makes us slave away the 6 other days.

    Jesus made all those laws obsolete as for as Christians needing to obey them in the original context.
    BUT they are still very active and should be in all our decisions in life as we know from those laws God's rules and opinions and principles that should govern our lifes each day.

    The Sabbath is no longer a day but it's a person namely Christ. To enter God's true rest we cease from our own works. (This is not say we don't do good works)
    However I think it's good to set aside a day to rest physically and reflect on God.
