I Broke a Chair in Church. Will God Hate Me?

Aug 17, 2007
No matter how modern and educated a society, superstitions prevail. For many people, it doesn't matter what they're doing or where they are... superstition can be hard to fight. Even in church. Many people who are superstitious yet are also members of the church will say that some of their superstitions are based on the Ten Commandments. Unfortunately, if you wanted to look in the Bible to find out which of the Ten Commandments might cause a superstition or two, you might have a difficult time locating them. This is because they are hidden amongst the many pages of the Bible which have been obscured by the numerous translations that are in existence today.

Unfortunately, a lot of church leaders and the various branches of Christianity have only further added to the obscurity of these texts. While some people may tell you that these commandments can be found in the 20th book of Exodus, others will tell you that these commandments are found in the 5th book of Deuteronomy. Of course, there are also people who believe that you can find out more about these commandments throughout chapters 22, 23, 31, 32, 33 and 34 of the Book of Exodus. So, as you can clearly see, there is a wide variation of where the commandments are even located. As such, it should not be difficult for you to see that there would also be a wide variety of commandments in existence today as well.

Some people honestly believe that in the fourth commandment, which deals with the Sabbath, has something to say about a broken chair. These people think that you cannot remove a broken window or door even though it may be hanging on its hinges, that you cannot carry an umbrella on the Sabbath; that the leg of a broken chair must not be replaced that you cannot put laces in your shoes if it is difficult to do and that you cannot sharpen a dull knife. The reason that these people believe that you cannot do these things is because it has been said that a person is to do no work on the Sabbath. These things are considered work. However, these people do not believe that God hates them if they do something such as sit on a chair, which happens to break on the Sabbath.

You can argue that people who believe this are quite superstitious. Or you can argue that they are closely following a religious belief of what a person should and should not do on the Sabbath. Sometimes faith or superstition is in the eye of the beholder.
