Smudge opened a whole new can of worms with the previous answer. The Lord DID create the world in 7 days (actually 6 and he rested on the 7th) just as Scripture says. These weren't ages or seven different days at different times. These weren't poetic references to make creation understandable. Genesis is a history book. The word day that is used refers to a literal 24 hr period. This is reaffirmed by the use of the words '...and the evening and the morning were the first day' [Genesis 1:5]
The idea of creation being 7 days is crucial to the story of salvation. How did death enter the world? [Genesis 3:19] [Romans 5:12] The world did not experience death until the sin of Adam and Eve. Also if these were periods of time, the sun and moon would have been created long after the herbs and trees. The creation story would be considered all out of order if it had happened the way some scientist claim it must.

It was 7 literal days

Just a point to note is that God didn't create the world in a literal 7 days so i doubt it was a saturday or a sunday as we see he never created time periods till the fourth day, and the reason the writer puts "there was evening and there was morning" was because it was the only way the people in those days would understand it, in fact hours etc were not really used until the time of Daniel.

Personally, I feel that there is too much emphasis on the DAY of worship. I feel that as long as we leave one day set aside to worship our Lord, that is more important thatn on what day it should be. Some of us have to work on the sat. and sun. so where would that leave us? As long as we put some special time aside for God then that is what is important.

In history we find that Constantine the Great made Sunday the Christian worship day in the fourth century, and his theology was possibly marred by belief in the Sun-god apollo (Sun..Sunday) the scriptures I have found it interesting that, many times, when the believers in the book of Acts met "on the FIRST day of the week", the greek word is Sabbaton - sabbath. The KJV is not corrupted, so I wonder myself why they translated the word as such.

It would be impossible for us to know if our current day Saturday is still the seventh day. To do this the calander would have to go back to the creation week and we would have to know that at the end of the creation week was the first sequence of seven days and then the second and so on for the last 6000 or however many years you want to have since that time. No one can know which day is actually the one that is seven days from the first seventh day. We celebrate the sabbath on Sunday since this was the practice of the apostolic church in recognition of the new creation that has started in Christ.

Truly all are correct when pointing out that the Sabbath is held on Saturday which is in representation of the Seventh day when God rested. Of course the commandments concerning the Sabbath were given to Moses were a couple thousand years after creation so to answer the original question here, we can't say what day the original seventh day would have fallen on.
As far as Christians worshipping on Sunday, the Gentile converts were never held to this standard. [Acts 15:6-29] Many of the new Christians met daily. Their are references to meetings on Sundays following the Lord's resurrection. God Bless

There in no statement attributing the resurrection to any worship celebration. Neither does the Catholic church, in all its commentary on the resurrection has made mention of worship on the day of the resurrection. Jesus Himself spoke about their tradition, voiding their worship teaching for doctrine the commandments of men.
The seventh day Sabbath was blessed and made holy, and nothing less than a direct command from God can change that. As it has been written, "What God hath blessed, is blessed forever."

The old tesament was written by Hebrew people, for Hebrew people so we need to look to them for a correct sabbath day, they celebrate sabbath from sundown on friday to sundown on saturday. However Jesus said in [Mark2;25-28] that the sabbath was made for man not man for the sabbath,so I believe that whatever day we choose to rest and honor God would be fine with him as long as it is to honor him.Today you almost have to take whatever day your employer gives you off Its hard to choose when you work every day but sunday or saturday.So I believe if Monday is your only day off and you honor God on that day then it is pleasing to God that you give that time.

I agree that the seveneth day was Saturday. And, I may be wrong, but I think Christians observe Sunday as the Lords day now because that is the day that Jesus rose from the dead.

Everyone knows by looking at a calender that Saturday is the Seventh day. How it Got to be on Sunday is a question that can only be figured out through the study of history. I cannot find anywhere in the Bible where Christ or His desciples changed the Sabbath.
