Sunday AM Meeting

As a child, I was taught the fundamental doctrine of 2x2ism, that is "Sunday Morning meetings in the home." This was a principal foundational doctrine which made us as 2x2s more righteous than other "heathen" who worshiped God inside buildings built for worship.

I was looking for scriptures where it says that Jesus instituted meetings in the home, but there are none by any stretch of the imagination.

Here is a verse where they were met in home for fear of the Jews (not because Jesus instituted this)

Joh 20:19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

THE SABBATH IS THE LAST DAY OF THE WEEK

All caps is for emphasis, not to shout. Sabbath is from sundown to sundown. Evening and morning make up a day. (Gen 1:5, Gen 1:8, Gen 1:13, Gen 1:19, Gen 1:23, Gen 1:31). In the Gregorian calendar system, the Sabbath is Friday evening to Saturday evening.

Read it in the scripture:

Gen 2:2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
Gen 2:3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

So when I write "sabbath", think the last day of the week, not the first day of the week

Comments:
  1. Jesus taught that we need to worship God, and not other men
  2. The apostles taught to worship God, and Him alone
  3. Jesus never taught as doctrine that people had to meet in homes or "Sunday AM meeting"
  4. The apostles never taught that you had to have Sunday AM meetings
Questions for 2x2s:
  1. If Jesus really taught that we had to meet on Sunday mornings in homes, why isn't it in the Bible?
  2. If meeting in homes on Sunday morning was a doctrinal issue, then why didn't the apostles ever teach it?
  3. Does it matter which day of the week people have fellowship?
  4. What is the point of making something a teaching if it isn't a Biblical teaching?
  5. Do you think that meeting in a home on Sunday mornings makes you more righteous?

If you have any scriptural support for this heresy (Sunday Morning Meetings) or have heard of any from an overseer, worker or their followers, please contact me.

Act 20:5 These going before tarried for us at Troas.
Act 20:6 And we sailed away from Philippi after the days of unleavened bread, and came unto them to Troas in five days; where we abode seven days.

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. - Jesus Christ speaking to Saul, see Act 26:18, see Salvation through Jesus Christ.
