Here's my question:
If you live not very near to the church, and you must drive to get there, would driving be work at that time, or would it be allowed?

I don't think it would be work. I mean, you gotta get to church if you can! ;)
... Even if it gets me convicted
I’ll still be on my knees with my hands lifted ...
... If saying I believe is out of line
If I’m judged cause I’m gonna give my life
To show the world the love that fills me
Then I want to be Guilty ...

Do you consider it work when driving to meet a friend? I don't.

Oh ok, 'cause my dad (who isn't a seventh day adventist) told me that we should live within walking distance of the church :huh:

I don't think that driving to church is work. Only if your racing some car or something... :unsure:

Well, walking can be more work than driving if the weather is hot or cold and not just right!

I would argue that is not work. God wants us to worship him in the company of Belivers

I think we start to get into a Pharisaical mindset when we start talking about that stuff. remember how back in the days of Christ you couldn't walk more than 3500 feet or else it would be considered work or you couldn't carry any burden (even pocket sized) on the Sabbath and all of that crazy stuff? The sabbath wasn't made to heap a bunch of rules and things onto it. It was made so that we can rest from normal daily labors (Exodus 20:8-11), from doing our own pleasures (Isaiah 58:13,14), so that we can focus on our Creator God, not worry about driving cars.

To call driving to church every week work is Pharisaical, meaning putting unnecessary restrictions on the Sabbath.
Speak up, judge righteously, and defend the cause of the needy and oppressed.
