Sabbath restrictions are for Jews only
(06-20-2011, 04:58 PM)BeeCos Wrote: In the Shulchan Aruch it says If one forgets the lighting of the Shabbos candles is as if one denies the Torah publicly.

Firstly, the Shulchan Aruch speaks about the Jewish precepts of Jewish Shabbath observance that are commanded for the Jewish people. Secondly, "denial of the Torah" only applies for one who deliberately does not do a commandment that he or she is obligated to observe.

Yes. G-d gave the Torah to the Jews so they can share the parts that are incumbent on all the Gentiles throughout the world, as well as Torah-based (i.e. true) morality. When the ruling Gentiles permit the Jews to perform this Divine mission, the Torah-faithful Jews are obligated to do so.

That only applies for Jews who are commanded about observing a Sabbath on the 7th day, and it does not state that not doing so IS idolatry. Rather, for Jews it is a sin that is equivalent in some respects to idolatry.

Within the Torah's Noahide Code, the idolatry that is forbidden to Gentiles is the worship of an idol. Belief in idolatry is also forbidden, but it is not punishable in a physical court, because belief itself does not involve a physical action.

Observance of the Jewish Torah commandments regarding Sabbath is just for the Jewish nation, as stated clearly in the 10 Commandments, and as is the ruling in Torah Law.

Thank you.

Yes! For information on how Noahides can honor the Jewish Sabbath, see this topic in our forum:
