Pieces From Rome's Challenge, Four Editorials From The Catholic Mirror
- "In the old testament, reference is made 126 times to The Sabbath,
and all these text conspire harmoniously in voicing the will of God
commanded the Seventh Day to be kept, because god Himself first kept it,
making it obligatory on ALL as 'a perpetual covenant.' Nor can we
imagine any one foolhardly enough to question the identity of Saturday
with the Sabbath or Seveth Day, seeing that the people of Iserael have
been keeping the Saturday from the giving of the Law, A.M. 2514 to
A.D. 1893, a period of 3383 years..." [ 1: note the calendar units
are different from today's standard; 2: in 1992, it is 3,482 years]
- "Exmaining the new testament from cover to cover, critically, we find
the Sabbath referred to 61 times. We find, too, that the Savior
invariably selected the Sabbath (Saturday) to teach in the synagogues and
work miracles. The 4 Gospels refer to the Sabbath (Saturday) 51 times.."
- "...the Redeemer refers to Himself as 'The Lord of the Sabbath'..."
He never once hinted at a desire to change it... thus the Sabbath
(Saturday) from Genesis to Revelation.
- "Hence the conclusion is inevitable... that of those who follow the
Bible as their guide, the Iseralites and Severth-Day Adventists have the
exclusive weight of evidence on their side, whilst the Biblical
Protestant Has Not A Word In Self-Defense For His Substitution Of Sunday
- "...Whilst the pharisees of old kept the True Sabbath, our modern
pharisees HAVE NEVER ONCE IN THEIR LIVES KEPT THE TRUE SABBATH which
their divine master kept to his dying day, and which his apostles kept,
after his example, for 30 years afterward, according to sacred record.."
- "The Bible and the Sabbath constitue the watchword of Protestantism;
But We Have Demonstrated That It Is The Bible Against Their Sabbath...
We Have Shown That No Greater Contradition Ever Existed That Their
Theory Than Their Theory And Practice! We have proved that neither
their Biblical ancestors nor themselves have ever kept One Sabbath
Day in their lives..."
Now remember, this was from the pen of an extremely knowledgeable Catholic
Theologian -- and he told it exactly like it is... Want more? Read on.
- "The Catholic Church for over 1,000 years before the existence of a
Protestant, by virtue of her divine mission, changed the day from
Saturday to Sunday..."
- "We say by virtue of her divine mission, because he who called himself
the 'Lord of The Sabbath' endowed her with his own power to teach, 'He
That hearth You, hearth Me'... and promised to be with her to the end
of the world. She holds her charter from him -- a charter as INFALLIBLE
"The Protestant world at its birth Found The Christian Sabbath (Sunday)
Too Strongly Entrenched To Run Counter To Its Existence... It was
therefore placed under the necessity of ACQUESCING in the arrangement,
thus implying the Church's Right To Change The Day, for over 300 years.."
- "The Iseralites And Seventh-Day Adventists Are Witnesses Of This Weekly
Desecration of The Day Named By God So Repeatedly..."
- "The history of the world cannot present a more stupid, self-stulifying
specimen of dereliction of principle than this... that immense concourse
of Bible Christians, the Methodists, have declared that the Sabbath has
Never Been Abrogates, whilst the followers of the Church of England,
together with her daughter, the Episcopal Church of the United States,
are commited by the 20th article of religion that the church CANNOT
LAWFULLY ORDAIN ANYTHING, 'Contrary To God's Written Word,' yet God's
Written Word enjoins his worship to be observed on Saturday absolutely,
repeatedly, and most EMPHATICALLY... all Biblical sects occupy the same
self-stultifying position which no explaination can modify, much less
- "They have IGNORED and CONDEMNED their teacher, the Bible... and they
have adopted a day kept by the Catholic Church.. the 'Mother of
- "...their Pretense for leaving the bosom of the Catholic Church was for
Apostasy from the truth As Taught In The Written Word. They adopted
the Written Word as their sole teacher, which they had no sooned done
than they Abandoned It, as these articles have abundantly proved..."
Shocking, isn't it. Rome's Challenege to all Protestants. By the way,
the prophet ISAIAH clealy foretold that the Sabbath would be falsely
done away with, but then reestablished...!"
