While this article is penned about Christmas falling on a Sunday this year, it specifically highlights the “importance” of Sunday keeping, or Sunday sacredness.
The writer stated: “One, Sunday is the Lord’s Day, and the Lord’s Day is the day when Christians observe the Sabbath principle. Sunday is a day to rest and worship. It’s the day the early church met together for prayer, singing, preaching, and fellowship. It’s the day we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, and it’s a fitting day to celebrate the miracle of the incarnation that preceded Jesus’ sacrificial death and victorious resurrection.”
As prophesied, once again:
“The Sunday movement is now making its way in darkness. The leaders are concealing the true issue, and many who unite in the movement do not themselves see whither the undercurrent is tending. Its professions are mild and apparently Christian, but when it shall speak it will reveal the spirit of the dragon. It is our duty to do all in our power to avert the threatened danger. We should endeavor to disarm prejudice by placing ourselves in a proper light before the people. We should bring before them the real question at issue, thus interposing the most effectual protest against measures to restrict liberty of conscience” (Testimonies, vol. 5, p. 452)
How true, that the Sunday movement is being carried by professed Christians and looks “mild” on the outside. Yet, the true purpose is being hid and lurks behind closed doors – Sunday laws as a legal requirement.
