Answer: The day was made for man, not the man for the day. We as Christians go to church on Sunday due to the fact that that's when our Lord Jesus Christ resurrected in victory ......Read Matthew 28:1 and Marcus 16:1

It is not possible to keep the 10 commandments which should be the standard by which for every bible believing Christian should live by, without observing the Sabbath day.

It's so common for people to believe that the Sabbath was only made for the Israelites/Jews which is outlined in the 4th commandment. The 10 commandments were established at Creation and most importantly the Sabbath was established at that time. God blessed the seventh day and rested - not just that seventh day, but THE seventh day.

No they are not really worshiping the Sun god. They are worshiping the one true God, God the creator and sustainer of life. The Bible makes it clear that it doesn't really matter where or when you worship God what is important is that you worship Him in spirit and in truth. So if people meet on Saturday or Sunday or Monday it doesn't matter.

To understand why god was upset at Israel for worshiping Idols you must first understand why Israel was attracted to Idol worship in the first place. God commanded Israel to be pure and virtuous. Idol worship involved setting up "Groves". These were places where the children of Israel would gather and take place in pagan style worship. This involved things such as orgies and other immoral behaviour. Basically this was the olden day version of porno, and this was why Israel kept forsaking God in order to justify their desire to engage in "Idol worship". God was not jealous that Israel were worshiping statues. He was angry that they were breaking his commandment that they keep themselves pure and virtuous.

"You shall have no other gods before me," is the first commandment and it meant that God's people were not to worship idols or false gods that the pagans around them were worshiping.

The Ancient Egyptians did worship cats because the rodents were eating all of the Egyptians' grains and they found that the cats were catching all of the rodents for them. They later domesticated them then the next step was worship. The Ancient Egyptians worshiped cats such as Mafdet (the first Egyptian feline deity), Bast[et], Sekhmet, and the Sphinx (which was more of a demigod or a mythological creature). Eventually, the spread of Christianity came into Egypt, and the Egyptians stopped worshiping cats.
