The “Sunday must be work free” campaign by the Church

Christian churches everywhere are trying to keep Sundays “work free” and try to influence legislatures to keep shops closed on Sundays.

I am all for a lot of free time and I think that most people put far too much emphasis on their work life, but I want this to remain my decision. It is not the government’s business when I work, and it definitely isn’t some church’s either.

And isn’t it ironic?

The guys who fulminate against working on Sundays put on their own biggest shows on – exactly – Sundays:

"It may be a bit inconsistent with what we preach, but please let this not deter you from obeying us."

By the way, if you have missed the Sunday service, here is your chance to catch up with it.

    Well, if people are working on Sunday, how can they go and see the show?

    You are right Andreas, if you can call that work. More like spewing their weekly dose of dogma and propoganda to keep those nice coins coming in.

    Hi Mr. Moser, I was searching the internet for information on this work free sunday movement, and I found the post about it you made on your blog. I thought you might be interested to know that this movement is prophesied in the Bible. It will eventually lead to the “mark of the beast” being enforced upon humanity. At first glance, this may seem to be a trivial point because it is just a day, right? The enforcing of a man-made religious decree strikes at the heart of God’s Eternal Law. In Exodus 20:8-11 it is written:
    8Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

    9Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

    10But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

    11For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

    This commandment identifies God as the creator, and when man makes his own day, Sunday, in place of God’s Sabbath (sunset Friday to sunset Saturday) the land will make void the law of God.

    Some will say that the sabbath was for the Jews, but God instituted the sabbath at the end of the creation week (see Genesis 2:2,3); this was before the Hebrew nation existed. Some will also say that the sabbath was nailed to the cross. Why would God get rid of a single commandment? Here are a few scripture verses that support the fact the ten commandments are still in effect:

    Revelation 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. (This verse is stated in the context of the warning about receiving the mark of the beast)

    Jesus says in John 14:15, “If ye love me keep my commandments.” Some will say that Jesus is talking about the two great commandments, love for God and love for your fellow man, and he is. However, this is summary of the commandments. The first four commandments deal with love for God, and the last six deal with love for man. Jesus was giving the whole idea of the law. The ten specific precepts are a necessary expansion of the two great principles. If you would like more information, read the book, The Great Controversy by Ellen G. White. I hope you will consider the enormity of this issue. If you have any questions let me know. Thank you for your time.
