The Sabbath - Everything You Ever Wanted To Know

Transference of the Sabbath:

1) The Sabbath Commandment was not intended by God only for the Jews. 1

2) The Sabbath is to act as a perpetual sign between God and His people throughout time. 1

3) The Sabbath will be kept in Heaven and in the New Earth. 1

4) Christ kept the Sabbath. 1, 2

5) Christ's Apostles kept the Sabbath. 1, 2

6) Early Christians kept the Sabbath. 1, 2, 3

7) There is no Scriptural evidence to suggest that Sabbath-solemnity was ever transferred to Sunday. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

8) The earliest extra-Scriptural documents are obscure and do not indicate widespread Christian Sunday-keeping. 1, 2

9) The change from widespread Christian Sabbath-keeping to widespread Christian Sunday-keeping was motivated exclusively by factors other than appropriate commands by Christ or even indications of such by the Apostles. 1, 2, 3, 4

10) The Roman Catholic Church claims responsibility for changing widespread Sabbath-keeping into widespread Sunday-keeping, and extra-Scriptural documents support their claim. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

11) If the above premises are all true, then God has never expressed His intention that Sabbath-solemnity be transferred to Sunday-solemnity.

12) Only God has the power to change His own laws; in Scripture, one of the marks of the Satanic beast of Revelation 13 is that it had the audacity to propose changes in God's laws! 1

13) If God didn't change His Sabbath Commandment, and only He has the authority to change it, then the solemnity of the Sabbath has not been transferred to any other day, particularly to Sunday.

14) The solemnity of the seventh-day Sabbath has not been transferred to any other day; in particular, the Sabbath-keeping requirement of the Fourth Commandment cannot be satisfied by observing Sunday as a holy day.
