We went this morning and the girl that checked us out said that they are closing at 8 tonight and will reopen at 6 or so on Sunday - they actually get a day off!
Great

Well Thank God. They need to be able to spend the day with their families also. We can "suffer" through them being closed for one day. I remember when the original Wal-Mart, and almost every other store, was closed every Sunday. The ones that were open had Blue Law restrictions on what you could buy. It seems we managed just fine for that one day. I kinda wished we went back to that. It made SWunday seem different and not just another day.

Hooray for Wal-Mart! Now if they'll just get the message about allowing their employees Thanksgiving Day.
Good ole days

I agree. I was raised by a grandmother who taught us the Sabbath was a day of rest. She believed it so strongly that she even prepared her Sunday meals on Saturday. I remember the Blue Law and think we would all benefit by it's return.
Hmmmm

Some would argue that Saturday is the Sabbath and your grandmother was cooking on the Sabbath. And I am not speaking up Seventh Day Adventists. But i guess that is for another thread.

I want to thank the policeman who waved me and everyne parked today in the fire lane away, and I noticed they were toeing someone at CVS. I've always wondered if you pull up there because someone told you there leaving and it's a rainstorm and cold can you stop with the engine running and lights on for 5 minutes while they get out of their disabled cart and make it to the car. I noticed also a lot of people park in the fire lane at Krogers if someone elese is in the car and the police generally are to busy to or just don't do anything about it. Christmas mania makes a lot of people really dread and hate the etire ordeal. I know it's purpose is for the Stores to sale record amounts, but it I didn't see a lot of happy people today.

Sabbath means more than a specific day of the week. If you'll check your Bible, any day that was set aside for a special reason was a sabbath. So calling the first day of the week (the Lord's Day) a sabbath is entirely appropriate.

If you could legally park in a fire lane, why would they even designate it as such? You'd probably be the first one hollering if emergency vehicles couldn't get in there because people were dropping off their passengers during a rainstorm. And I'm quite certain they were not indiscriminately "toeing" people at CVS.

You are way off. The Sabbath is the seventh day, which is the day God rested after creation. Ever been commanded to "Remember the Sabbath, to keep it holy"?
Merry Christmas

Yes your right Scarlett, but Frankly Dear I don't give a damm. Or Aunt Katie all I want to do is get back to Wall Mart. I just wonder why people use the fire lanes all the time with out any trouble and probally are right now at both stores and the law is not inforced on a consistant basis. And yes the people at CVS were parked in Handicap areas probally without authorization. Your interperative skills are very limited but I forgive you because your probally the woman who bangs my doors up with your packard running into carts and opening car doors against my car. Are you Crazy Miss Daisy.

The calendar has been changed so much since the olden days. Two months were added. A day (or days) were added/subtracted at various times to compensate to try to make it accurate. So in the end we don't really know if the "Sabbath" anyone observes now is the same day of the week as it was then anyway. The real "Sabbath" as it was then may fall on what is now a Tuesday for all we know. Jesus said something to the effect of, "The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath". God Bless and Merry Christmas.

Then explain this: "Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation." Lev. 23:24.

Or this dictionary definition: The first day of the week, Sunday, observed as the day of rest and worship by most Christians.

To whom am I going to give the most credence? An anonymous poster on Topix, or the Bible and the dictionary?

Dictionary with only one definition? Surely you jest.
The Sabbath referred to in the Ten Commandments is irrefutably the seventh day of the week. Since your Bible is opened to Leviticus 23, back up to the third verse.

You should give credence to your Bible and none whatsoever to your dictionary. Where in the Bible was the Sabbath changed from Saturday to Sunday? Please give the verse and tell who authorized this change?

You're missing the point. I never said that the sabbath never referred to the seventh day. I said it doesn't ALWAYS refer to the sabbath day. Where did I say that the dictionary definition I gave was the only one? I understand why you can't grasp the concept of the sabbath being used in more than one way. You kind of have a one track mind.

The topic being discussed was THE sabbath. THE sabbath is irrefutably the seventh day, which was the day God rested after creation.
I agree that difficulty grasping a concept is being displayed.

I see you have a little comprehension problem. Where in my posts did I say the Sabbath was changed from Saturday to Sunday? I said that the sabbath is used in more than one way -- that God called His special days "sabbaths". The Bible refers often to "a" sabbath and my "sabbaths" referring to the various times of feast and sacrifice God commanded. There were sabbath years that were to be kept. Do you think that meant every day in that year was a Saturday? Duh! In the New Testament, the church met on "the Lord's Day." If it is a day set aside by God, it is appropriately called a sabbath.

As far as giving credence to a dictionary, what reference do you turn to for definitions and spelling? Or do you think you're Noah Webster?
