From Spurgeon's Catechism

How is the Sabbath to be sanctified?

A. The Sabbath is to be sanctified by a holy resting all that day, even from such worldly employments and recreations as are lawful on other days (Lev. 23:3), and spending the whole time in the public and private exercises of God's worship (Ps. 92:1-2; Isa. 58:13-14), except so much as is taken up in the works of necessity and mercy (Matt. 12:11-12).

So, Rod, where does blogging come in on that list? Is this post mercy or is it worship?

Just givin' you a hard time, brother.

Definitely a "work of necessity."

After a Christian attends worship at their local church on Sunday morning, do you think it is Ok to:
eat out
play a sport
watch a sport
mow your lawn
go fishing
or go jogging?

Thanks
