THE BOOK THAT TELLS YOU THE FACTS
In the Old Testament, the people of God faithfully kept the Seventh-day Sabbath given by the God of heaven in the beginning (Genesis 2:1–3; Exodus 20:8–11; etc.)
In the New Testament, Jesus gave no command changing the day of worship to Sunday. Sunday sacredness began outside the Bible, not in it.
What are the facts in the case? Where did Sunday worship come from? How did it begin?
In these pages you will learn that none of the early Christians (with the exception of some worldly ones at Alexandria and Rome) accepted Sunday as a sacred day for over a hundred years AFTER the last New Testament book was written by John in 95 A.D.
You will also learn that a majority of the faithful Christians were still keeping the true Sabbath in the fifth century, over 350 years after the Bible was finished.
Why did Christians later begin keeping Sunday? What forces were at work to pressure them into this? What are the lessons we can learn from their experience as we today seek to return to simple, pure faith of the Bible?
In this book you will find the facts. They were written by a Christian scholar who spent years digging them out.
Thank God every day for the Bible. Cling to what it says ... and you will be safe in the days ahead.
