No, a spiritual life/path is intended to free you, not create more bondage, as Yesus taught, let love lead your life and if soccer is what you love, why should you not pursue that on a designated Holy-day???

Ites! I say do not stop playing fotball just because its on sabbath day! If you love it, then keep moving with it. Your not a bad Rasta if you dont do the sabbath, and your not a better one if you do. Its just for your soul and spirit to calm down and dont stress.. take a time to sit down and really study, pray and praise JAH. I say sabbath is a day for yourself to ignore Babylon. Fotball is good fi ya body! Any sport is. So dont stop man! Keep moving with fotball, yes! Blessings!

Family - I have another sight
If one takes the Bible seriously, then we read that JAH do not like when we "fool around" doing earthly things on the sabbath day. The Sabbath is not a bondage! It is a starting point! With all raspect.
As far as I know, Haile Selassie I kept the sabbath holy, because He was a Coptic christian.
Some of my people actually shut down all electronic devices (as cellphones etc.) and keep away from games, television, sport and so on.
You should not do it because the pastors say it, never! Do it because you read it and feel it.
Sabbath is a day of love, praising of JAH and family get-together - not a burden. That is what so many people has misoverstood in so many years.
Actually also Jesus kept the sabbath holy! He only said that it was not for JAHs sake, but for our sake. Which is very true, because we don't pray for JAH, we pray for humankind. JAH live on without our help.
 We need a day a week to be righteous all over the line.

Raspect Brother Grantham, I am not telling you what to do or think, I am just telling you what I sight and think, because the I ask.
I am a musician here in Denmark I-self, so I have sometimes a hard time keeping it (because most music-gigs is fridays and saturdays and sabbath is from friday night to saturday night.) But the most days I stand tall on the Holy day of the week.
Selah Ites!

Greetings in The Name of the Most High JAH RASTAFARI
Blessed and Ivine Love , the Sabbath is one of the 10 commandnets "Remember keep Holy the Sabbath Day" We have six days where we can do what iver we choose JAH put it in stone, He asked we to keep the commandments, It is InI parsonal Ilief that we cannot pick and choose which of Jah's commandments to uphold, the Livity is supposed to put Jah above ivery thing, or does that mean until our earthly wants seem as important or more important than living by Jah's instruction...........just a thought
Peace and Love

To keep the sabbath holy just use it as a day of rest and reflection on the I's life and use it to truly praise and thank Jah for all the I's blessing. I think to play soccer on the day is fine because it isn't work, relaxes the I and keeps the I healthy. I work six days a week but on the sabbath day I rest and I do what relaxes I and gives I time to truly think, I build, I create. Painting, drawing, making furniture, whatever I feel like on the day. And while I do it I think to Iself all the great gifts that Jah has given I that I have the freedom and ability to create as I do seen?

Just keep on praising Jah bredren, H.I.M will guide the I to the right path!

Jah bless.
