(I have almost no scriptures memorized.) - The reason I ask is that I think JESUS was called a law breaker when he healed on The Sabbath Day. When this was brought up to HIM, he said , "Is it lawful to do good on The Sabbath or to do evil." (Something like that I think) The question I believe is unanswered and came about when JESUS healed someone on The Sabbath Day.
I've also been told that in order to get into Heaven all one has to do is to believe that JESUS came back from the dead. That was told to me by a young counselor at a Christian Summer Camp. I've learned as well that it is by faith that we will be saved, not deeds. --- I've learned though that we are supposed to follow all the rules because we love CHRIST. Not working on The Sabbath Day has brought up a lot of trouble for me. I read above that someone wrote basically that, "if one breaks one law, they've broken them all". What I've read of The Sabbath Day law is that we are to get all our work done in 6 days and that it be a day of worship. I don't always want to worship on The Sabbath and I don't think I usually finish all my work in the 6 days before the Sabbath.
Jesus didn't violate the Sabbath. Jesus kept the entire law perfectly. The Pharisees accused Jesus of violating the Sabbath, but those were baseless trumped up charges. They condemned Him when healed no matter what day of the week it was. Jesus broke a lot of man made traditions, but He never broke any of the 10 commandments.
The Israelites were told to keep the Sabbath holy.... they were to do no work on the sabbath.... Jesus admitted to working on the Sabbath and even more the Father had been too.....
