Almost the whole Christian world reverences Sunday, did God know that this attempt to change His holy Sabbath would occur?

"And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. " Daniel 7:25

"Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them." Acts 20:28-30

Yes, long ago God predicted that, from within the church itself, misguided men would arise who would attempt to change His holy law.
Here are some statements showing which show who the Protestan churches are following and its not the Bible:

"Protestants ... accept Sunday rather than Saturday as the day for public worship after the Catholic Church made the change... But the Protestant mind does not seem to realize that ... in observing Sunday, they are accepting the authority of the spokesman for the Church, the pope." Our Sunday Visitor, February 5th, 1950. This Rock

Question: Which is the Sabbath day?
Answer: Saturday is the Sabbath day.

Question: Why do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?
Answer: We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday.”-Rev. Peter Geiermann C.SS.R., The Convert’s Catechism of Catholic Doctrine, p. 50

"The Church, on the other hand, after changing the day of rest from the Jewish Sabbath, or seventh day of the week, to the first, made the Third Commandment refer to Sunday as the day to be kept holy as the Lord's Day. The Council of Trent (Sess. VI, can. xix) condemns those who deny that the Ten Commandments are binding on Christians." The Catholic Encyclopedia, Commandments of God, Volume IV,© 1908 by Robert Appleton Company, Online Edition © 1999 by Kevin Knight, Nihil Obstat - Remy Lafort, Censor Imprimatur -+John M. Farley, Archbishop of New York, page 153.

''The [Roman Catholic] Church changed the observance of the Sabbath to Sunday by right of the divine, infallible authority given to her by her founder, Jesus Christ. The Protestant claiming the Bible to be the only guide of faith, has no warrant for observing Sunday. In this matter the Seventh-day Adventist is the only consistent Protestant.'' The Catholic Universe Bulletin, August 14, 1942, p. 4.

"All of us believe many things in regard to religion that we do not find in the Bible. For example, nowhere in the Bible do we find that Christ or the Apostles ordered that the Sabbath be changed from Saturday to Sunday. We have the commandment of God given to Moses to keep holy the Sabbath Day, that is the 7th day of the week, Saturday. Today most Christians keep Sunday because it has been revealed to us by the Church outside the Bible." The Catholic Virginian, "To Tell You The Truth,” Vol. 22, No. 49 (Oct. 3, 1947).

"... you may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify." The Faith of Our Fathers, by James Cardinal Gibbons, Archbishop of Baltimore, 88th edition, page 89. Originally published in 1876, republished and Copyright 1980 by TAN Books and Publishers, Inc., pages 72-73.

'Deny the authority of the Church and you have no adequate or reasonable explanation or justification for the substitution of Sunday for Saturday in the Third - Protestant Fourth - Commandment of God... The Church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact.'' Catholic Record, September 1, 1923.

"But since Saturday, not Sunday, is specified in the Bible, isn't it curious that non-Catholics who profess to take their religion directly from the Bible and not the Church, observe Sunday instead of Saturday? Yes, of course, it is inconsistent; but this change was made about fifteen centuries before Protestantism was born, and by that time the custom was universally observed. They have continued the custom, even though it rests upon the authority of the Catholic Church and not upon an explicit text in the Bible. That observance remains as a reminder of the Mother Church from which the non-Catholic sects broke away - like a boy running away from home but still carrying in his pocket a picture of his mother or a lock of her hair." The Faith of Millions

"Perhaps the boldest thing, the most revolutionary change the Church ever did, happened in the first century. The holy day, the Sabbath, was changed from Saturday to Sunday. "The Day of the Lord" (dies Dominica) was chosen, not from any directions noted in the Scriptures, but from the Church's sense of its own power. The day of resurrection, the day of Pentecost, fifty days later, came on the first day of the week. So this would be the new Sabbath. People who think that the Scriptures should be the sole authority, should logically become 7th Day Adventists, and keep Saturday holy." Sentinel, Pastor's page, Saint Catherine Catholic Church, Algonac, Michigan, May 21, 1995
“If Protestants would follow the Bible, they would worship God on the Sabbath Day. In keeping the Sunday they are following a law of the Catholic Church.” Albert Smith, Chancellor of the Archdiocese of Baltimore, replying for the Cardinal, in a letter dated February 10, 1920.

“It is well to remind the Presbyterians, Baptists, Methodists, and all other Christians, that the Bible does not support them anywhere in their observance of Sunday. Sunday is an institution of the Roman Catholic Church, and those who observe the day observe a commandment of the Catholic Church.” Priest Brady, in an address, reported in the Elizabeth, NJ ‘News’ on March 18, 1903. This Rock

“Of course these .. quotations are exactly correct. The Catholic Church designated Sunday as the day for corporate worship and gets full credit – or blame – for the change.” This Rock,The Magazine of Catholic Apologetics and Evangelization, p.8, June 1997

“The observance of Sunday by the Protestants is homage they pay, in spite of themselves, to the authority of the [Catholic] Church.” Monsignor Louis Segur,‘Plain Talk about the Protestantism of Today’, p. 213.

Protestant churches don't keep the Sabbath because the Sabbath is not part of the Noahite laws. Gentiles are bound by the Noahite laws only.

So Grammy get a life or lose yours in the judgment day, why be so foolish?

You certainly will not lose your life by keeping Holy the Sanctified 7th day Sabbath of the Gods, who created heaven and earth.

Now will you?

If you deny this and say yes you will lose your life

there are only seven days of the week. the week starts its day on Sunday which is the first day of the week. as we read the bible in Exodus through the 10 commandments of God, it clearly mentions the day of the Almighty God's Sabbath. It falls on the 7th day. try search Ellen G. White's information about the sabbath. She is a true prophet who God has reveal all his revelations to. she knows all about the sabbath of God, and the ones who went change the day of the Lord to sunday and the time.
some people might be refuse and deny the truth that im talking about, but you'll see it if it happens. I heard about the Sunday law that has been discussed by the United States Union on January 27th of this year, that is the sign of the truth that im talking about. People went change the day of the Lord to sunday.
Have you heard about the "VICARIUS FILII DEI", which means in Latin for "Vicar of the Son of God?"
In revelation 13:18 it says,"count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six (666)."
Let's do it now and see what we find. Remember the Roman numerals you learned in School?
V=5, I=1, C=100, A=0, R=0, I=1, U=5, S=0 (VICARIUS)...U and V have the same value. Look in your encyclopedia under "Alphabet."
F=0, I=1, L=50, I=1, I=1, D=500,E=0, I=1(FILII DEI)
REMEMBER THAT WORD "VICARIUS FILLII DEI?" THAT I JUST MENTION BEFORE,those are the roman numerics for each alphabets...if you add them all, it will become as the number 666, which wat the book of revelation says about the number of man, and his number is six hunred threescore and six.
It comes out the same in Greek, Hebrew, and Latin.
"The 1260 years of the Papacy's rule are called the "dark ages." i'm sure you've heard that expression before. the reason it was so dark is because the priests frobade anyone to read or even have a bible. for hundreds of years only the priests were allowed to read Bibles. Satan had to get the Bibles away from the people in order to keep them in darkness and superstition. the people just didn't know any better. there was a time when if you were caught with a Bible, you were dragged out of your home, hung up on a pole, and burned alive in your front yard!"
(try search "SUNDAY LAW IS COMING" and you'll see all about it.

Someone explain to me WHY I need a "law" telling me to go to church on Sunday, when I ALREADY go to church on Sunday? And what does me going to a small, independent Baptist church have to do with the Catholic Church?

Where does the Catholic Church get so much crediblity about "changing" the day of worship, when you Adventists, like we Baptists believe NOTHING else the Catholic Church teaches about itself? Oh...because THEY say so? SO?!?

Does that make us official, card carrying members of the Catholic Church just because we go to church on the same day they do? This whole premise is absurd.

Ask them 2 freaks to show you where the word " WORSHIP" is found in EXO 20 or the 4th commandment!?

It's NOT A SIN to WORSHIP on SUNDAY!! Some SDA's worship on SUNDAY ALSO!! We used to worship also on SUNDAY when we were SDA members!! SDA's DON'T like to admit they also worship on SUNDAY! and ON WEDNESDAYS and ON FRIDAYS!!!

The 4th comand says thou shall NOT WORK on the SABBATH DAY!

Notice how those TWO freaks don't even realise that PAUL was NOT ONE of the 12 Apostles and they DON'T even realise that PAUL contradicts scripture and HIMSELF!! http://www.youtube.com/watch...

They mention 2nd Cor 11: 13-15

During the pope's recent trip to Great Britain the papacy stated that they were the only true church on earth, and that other Christians groups were not really churches but segments of the Catholic church, lost outside of the one and only true church.

Since they claim to have changed worship from saturday to sunday they give themselves all the crediblity.

GE:

You really think so?

Then why did she in her first 'visions' say the SDA church would one day in the future "proclaim the Sabbath MORE FULLY"?

Why did Mrs White NEVER say something like that with reference to the Sabbath, again? Because she thought the SDA church already had had all the truth concerning the Sabbath? And she thought there could not be more light on the Sabbath?

Would it not be to contradict herself? Then could she be a true prophet who spoke something that could not be fulfilled?

What would be, "more fully proclaimed" about the Sabbath?

And what would the SDA church do about it when it would have happened? Accept it or reject it?

Then, DID YOU KNOW, that Mrs White proclaimed about the First Day of the week, that it should be a day for all the creation of God to be "REMEMBERED"? That the First Day of the week should be a day of joy and celebration? Words or ideas she never spoke concerning the Seventh Day Sabbath?

Please prove me wrong? Not with empty accusations, but with quotations?

No problem - doing fine, since you won't be making any of those Judgment Day decisions. But you need to repent of your stinging, unloving attitude toward others. Jesus said we will be known as His followers by our love. Keeping (worshiping on) a specific day will NOT save anyone on That Day.

Almost all the world worships at the feet of the false gods of paganism's Trinity three gods=1 god no matter how they twist it they worship the false ONE god. Islam and Friday worship, Jews and Sabbath keepers and their One god/or Trinity, Protestants on Sunday their one god and Trinity, all worship the ONE god. Go figure they (all the world) wonder after the beast, dragon, false god/gods.
