Current Events – Global Sunday Push

Prophecy is fast fulfilling before our eyes today and who is ready to meet this challenge?

There is a continual push from all quarters of the world to close down trading on Sunday. Under the guise of economic reasons or promoting better family relations, this global push is Satan’s attempt to have the whole world worship him on the spurious Sabbath that he originated, the first day of the week.

Sylvia Allen: Ariz. senator proposes mandatory church

According to Allen, the real problem behind the increase in our nation’s gun violence begins with something internal – the soul. And what better way to combat a corroded heart condition? Sunday morning worship.

“It is the soul that is corrupt and how we get back to a moral rebirth in this country, I don’t know,” Allen commented to the state’s appropriations committee. But Allen had a plan – and no matter how much her scheme tramples on the Constitution’s separation of church and state – Allen wants butts in the pews.

“We are slowly eroding religion at every opportunity that we have. We should probably be debating a bill requiring every American to attend a church of their choice on Sunday to see if we can get back to having a moral rebirth,” Allen said.

“In the fourth and fifth centuries, Sunday shows and Sunday theaters, it was complained, hindered the ‘devotion of the faithful,’ because many of the members attended them in preference to the church services. The church, therefore, demanded that the state interfere, and promote Sunday observance by law. ‘In this way,’ says Neander ‘the church received help from the state for the furtherence of her ends.’ This union of church and state served to establish the Papacy in power. A similar course pursued now will produce the same results.” (AUGUSTUS NEANDER, General History of the Christian Religion and the Church, Torey translation (3rd American ed.), vol. 2, pp. 300,301.)

Declaration Signed in Poland by Catholics, Orthodox and Evangelicals to Protect Sunday (January 2015)

“This year’s Week of Prayer for Christian Unity was a joint appeal for respect for Sunday. Signed (by) all traditions: Orthodox, Evangelical and Catholic. forcing believers to work on Sunday violates the right to freedom of religion.”

“Church leaders remind workers and employers that free Sunday is essential to deepen their faith, family life and human health. The authorities representing the right to call so its protection, noting that forcing believers to work on Sundays violates the right to religious freedom. It is worth recalling that in our civilization circle of Christianity that the right to rest on Sunday became one of the universal human rights. Thus, the possibility of using a free Sunday should extend to all whose work on that day is not absolutely necessary. This right is respected in most European countries with an established democracy.” Marcin Przeciszewski / br, Warsaw, 2015-01-26
