Most Black churches have one thing in common, NO MEN! I have heard black pastor’s talk about how much more cooperative women are than men are when leading them. I think this is an excuse to not have to deal with the strong personalities of men. Men are born to lead and deal with problems. Many pastors are insecure and don’t like having strong men in their churches, and that is why their churches are dying! David led Israel primarily due to the fact that he had a forum of Mighty Men! In David’s later years he wrote a chapter of appreciation about the exploits of these men. No great leader can really be great without great MEN following them and also leading WITH them, Moses had Joshua to assist him, and Joshua was NO PUNK! He was a strong man of faith himself! Moses didn’t act intimidated by the fact that Joshua was a mighty man of God, Moses appreciated it! The main reason the Nation of Islam is so appealing to Black men is that is speaks to what men appreciate…STRENGTH! Black pastors WAKE UP and realize you need strong men to HELP you lead! There are too many limp wristed men in our churches! It is no wonder our sisters are facing a crisis in the area of finding a husband! A man must be discipled to not only grow in Christ, but grow as a leader in the body.

Matthews 12
5Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are blameless?
6But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple.
7But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless.
8For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.
Yes. Rome had the same calendar that we have today
The Sabbath day is trully on Saturday, Christians celebrate the sabbath on sunday, Why? because this is the day that Christ Jesus rose from the Grave. Jesus the christ said that the sabbath was made for man and not man for the sabbath Mark 2:27 . In the old testament we lived under the Law. We are in the new testament and now are under Grace. God could care less what day you set aside to worship him. As long as you set aside a Day and worship. The lord in spririt, truth and praise and prayer.
No Christ did not rise on Sunday.

Daniel 9 26-27And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

He said in the midst of the week Messiah shall be cut off. Messiah is Jesus right? So Jesus died in the middle of the week. What is the middle of the week, You know it to be wednesday right?

Matthew 12:38-40 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

The Lord was in the grave 3 days and 3 nights. Get 3 days and 3 nights from Good Friday Evening to Easter Sunday Morning?

Let's try. Good friday evening. That is half a day./ Saturday morining to saturday evening is one day. So we have a day and a half and he rose Sunday moring. That is a day and a half. not 3 days and 3 nights.

Let's try the Lord's way now. Wednesday evening the Lord gave up the ghost. That half a day. Thurday morning and thursday evening, that makes 1 day and a half so far. Friday morning and Friday Evening, that's 2 a half days, and then you have Saturday morning, and he rose in the eveing. that's 3 days and 3 nights just as the Lord said. Here is another scripture to put the nail in the coffin so to speak.

Matthew 28:1-6 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
The first day of the week is Sunday., and it is the day Christ Jesus rose, from the Grave with ALL Power

Scripture Ref.
St. John 20:1 The first day of the week
Luke 24:1 The first day of the week
Mark 16:2 early in the moring ,first day of the week
Matthew 28:1 dawn toward the first day of the week
You can not get around it. ha ha
Pastor V:
Correction, the Bible NEVER says when our Messiah was resurrected.
It only states when the women came to the tomb.
If you look at Matthew 28:1, you will see in the earliest Bible translations, that the women came Sabbath as sunset. That is when the new day begins. You should know this, but here is my reference;
" The Jewish day begins at either sunset or at nightfall (when three second-magnitude stars appear. "

So the women came at sunset, and Messiah had already risen.

The Latin Bible, based on texts from the 4th century, read that the women came at the time cal"vespere" or vespers, which we all know is at the close of the day.

Latin Vulgate
28:1 vespere autem sabbati quae lucescit in primam sabbati venit Maria Magdalene et altera Maria videre sepulchrum

Two bible translations that render this time of day in Matther 28:1 -

Darby Bible Translation
Now late on sabbath, as it was the dusk of the next day after sabbath, came Mary of Magdala and the other Mary to look at the sepulchre.

English Revised Version
Now late on the sabbath day, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
~~~~~~~~
The texts you mention do not contain any indication or command to change the "Holy Day" of worship from Sabbath to Sunday, do they?
Wait, who said Good Friday was real anyway???? twas a duel Sabbath during HIS crucifixion, and yes HE DID RISE ON SUNDAY MORNING!
STOP! Is not the topic of this discussion about Black Men not attending church on Sunday morning?

Traditionally, Christians have worshiped on Sundays. The important thing here is that we, the Body of Believers come together on Sundays to worship and fellowship with one another. Is it REALLY that important if we held church on Sunday rather than a Saturday? If a person attended church on a Sunday and stepped forward to receive the gift of salvation, will his salvation be real having received it on a Sunday rather than a Saturday?

I am all for correct interpretation of the Word, but NO ONE has taken the time to address the topic in question. I don't recall where Bro.Mark was asking for our interpretation of the Word as to which day are we so hold worship service. The question posted is: "WHERE ARE BLACK MEN ON SUNDAY MORNING?"

Can we stick to the topic guys?

Love you in Jesus Name! LOL
Tradition of man is why black men should not be in church on Sunday.
....STOP! Is not the topic of this discussion about Black Men not attending church on Sunday morning?....

HahHah!
Thank you Sister!!!!!!
Newview, LOL.. I started reading this discussion and here we are on page 3 and no one has touched the topic of the discussion. It seems the contributors to this discussion have taken a left turn at Albuquerque... and arrived at a discussion on the Sabbath instead of Where are Black Men on Sunday Morning....

You can change the day to Friday or Saturday and I believe the creator of this discussion will still ask Where Are the Black Menfolk (in da Black church)



Even Bugs Bunny realizes he shouldn't have taken that left turn at Albuquerque...
