Here are some Church Acknowledgements about Sunday quotations paraphrased from various Church writings:
Question: Which day is the seventh-day sabbath?
Answer: The seventh-day sabbath is actually Saturday.
Question: So why do we keep Sunday instead of Saturday?
Answer: We keep Sunday
because by its authority our Church actually shifted the sanctity
from Saturday to Sunday.
For over one thousand
years the Church by its moral excellence and under inspiration of God
transferred the day of worship from Saturday to Sunday. And this
before there were any of those protesters. As a result, the Sabbath
day kept by Christians in general is really the progeny of the
Church. And our Church claims this as the true marriage partner of
the Spirit of God. Further these troublesome protesters complain
about a lot of things but on this point they are silent!
The sacred establishment
of a rest day from secular activities including work and to be used
as a day for worship, and by the official permission of the Church
shifted from the seventh day as the last day of the week, to Sunday
the first day of the week, … clearly reveals that as a people we
There is no statement to
be found in the Bible that there should be a change in worship from
Saturday to Sunday.
The Bible may be read
from Genesis to Revelation and not one line of scripture will be
found that gives authority for the holy rendering of Sunday. The
keeping of Saturday religiously is strictly compelled by the
Scriptures but this is a day which we have never declared to be holy.
It cannot be found
anywhere in the Bible that there was a command from the Apostles or
Christ for a transformation in the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday.
We know that Moses was given an order from God for the holy
observance of the Sabbath day and that this is Saturday the seventh
day of the week. Most Christians observe Sunday at the present time
since the Church has made this known to us externally to the Bible.
Question: Do you have a different means of providing evidence that the Church has the authority to create religious festivals?
Answer: If she did not
have this authority, it would not have been possible for her to do
that for which all contemporary religious persons accept; … she
could not have exchanged the keeping of the first day of the week,
Sunday, for the keeping of the seventh day, Saturday, a modification
for which no command of Scripture can be found.
If you obey the Bible
exclusively then the facts of the matter are simply that you are
bound to observe Saturday as sacred. And this because it is the day
which has been particularly commanded by our Omnipotent God to be
observed as sacred to the Creator.
Those who protest may
ask: How is it possible for us to accept the doctrines of a Church
that is unfaithful in religious matters? How indeed may we ask that
you protesters have actually received her doctrines for your whole
life and in blatant contradiction to your generally approved
authority, the Holy Scriptures, on this Worship Day matter?
If those who protest
would only but abide by the Holy Scriptures, then they would actually
show devotion to God on the seventh-day Sabbath. But in the
observance of Sunday they are actually following the command of the
By the command of Jesus
Christ the Church has changed the Sabbath rest day to Sunday. And
this was done in memory of the Lord's resurrection. Therefore the
keeping of Sunday by those who protest is actually an obeisance they
render to the controlling power of the Church. And this they do to
their own doctrinal detriment.
Those who protest, in
rejecting the sovereignty of the Church, do not have any valid
explanation for their Sunday hypothesis. As a result they should
rationally observe Saturday as the true Sabbath day.
ACKNOWLEDGEMENT NUMBER 4: Church dignitaries assert that the Seventh-day Adventist Church is the only notable religious organization among those who protest observing sacredly the correct sabbath of the Bible.
The Church transferred
the keeping of the Bible Sabbath to the first day Sunday by
entitlement due to the Godly inerrant sovereignty granted to her by
Christ Jesus her Founder. Those who protest, asserting the Bible as
the only authority in religious matters, do not have any endorsement
for the keeping of Sunday. The only protesters who are unchanging on
this subject appear to be the Seventh Day Adventists.
Jews esteem the
sovereignty of the Old Testament exclusively, and Christian
[Seventh-day] Adventists acknowledge the New Testament along with the
Old as a Book of divine origin. They ascertain that the Holy
Scriptures, their instructor, is uniform in both Old and New
Testaments, that the Saviour, at no time while living His earthly
life, observed a different weekly worship day other than Saturday.
This concept is simply accentuated by the four Gospels, while the
Acts, Epistles, and Revelation give not a single hint of a command
negating the Saturday convention.
What command is there from the Bible for transferring the Sabbath from the seventh day to the first day of the week?
Who gave the Church Leader the power to
alter what God has commanded?
If the Christian is to be instructed by the Bible exclusively, then Seventh Day Adventists are correct in keeping Saturday along with the Jews.
