While the Christian and cultic forms of sabbatarianism disagree on which day the Sabbath should be observed, they use the exact same arguments to prove that we should keep a Sabbath. Thus it does not really matter if we are dealing with followers of the Puritans or the Adventists, they will both argue that the Sabbath is a creation ordinance, a moral law, etc. A refutation of the basic arguments which underlie all forms of sabbatarianism is the focus of this study.

    Sabbath keeping is one of those issues, like the trinity, where good arguments exist on both sides. This book is apologetic in nature and therefore allows no room for ambiguity or uncertainty, so it is very one-sided despite claims to the counter. The biggest flaw is not addressing the history of the shift from Saturday to Sunday which was in the 4th century, which means it was a catholic/roman imposition; and the fact that Jesus and his followers were sabbath keepers and he never abrogated that tradition. This doesn't mean there are not arguments for abrogation, just that they are not cut and dry as this booklet insists.

    Note: Don't have the paper copy, but there were quite a lot of typos in this logos version :( This is a small book (more of a booklet, as it is just over 30 pages) taking an apologetic approach to the elevation of the Sabbath and Sabbath-keeping (both the original Saturday version, and the Sunday version). The author approaches things in quite a point-wise manner, which I did find appropriate in a book this size. Thus making it quite useful if you are looking for some pointers, or wish to address some arguments raised concerning this area. Overall, I do think that the Author has made his case well and concisely. I don't see SDA as a cult, nor do I necessarily see many of the seventh-day Baptists (and others) as cults, so I think the division of Cultic Sabbatarians and Christian Sabbatarians as unfortunate - as many in the former would agree with the historical creeds (at least these days they would), even if they do not specifically confess them. Sadly the Author never acknowledges that for many of us (Lutherans and Catholics for example) the 4th Commandment is not about the Sabbath, rather that is the 3rd Commandment - though many of us are used to "transposing" the commandment numbers ;-) I am impressed that a small book like this has suggested reading - always a welcomed addition, especially in apologetic works.

    The Sabbath as a day of rest was handed down to us by God Himself at creation (Genesis 2:1-3), Jesus our example worshiped on the Sabbath (Acts 4:16; 1 John 2:6), and according to prophecy, this will be the day that all who are saved will worship (Isaiah 66:22-23). I can't find anywhere in the Word of God where it was changed. So please forgive me if I don't reject the Word of God in order to follow a tradition of man... As for me and my house, we shall follow the Lord in the manner as it has been laid out for us in His Word.

    I worship each and every day, not just one day a week.

    Sabbath day is a day of rest and Jesus said He is the Master of that day, So what day did he worship?
