In the KJV, verse 5 reads: “One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.” From this incorrect translation, many falsely assume that Paul is giving license to reject the seventh day Sabbath and permission to observe any day that a person may desire. However, verse 17 shows that the subject of Chapter 14 is “eating and drinking,” not whether to keep holy the seventh day Sabbath, or the first day of the week, or any other day. The original dispute was between vegetarians and those who ate meat, verses 1-3. Likewise, in verse 6 the dispute over “regarding one day” over “another day” was about on which day one preferred to eat meat—not which day to keep holy. At no time did God the Father, Jesus Christ or the Apostle Paul
ever give license to anyone to change the Fourth Commandment concerning the Holy Sabbath.
