national sunday law = another book to throw away

Someone passed by my house and dropped a copy of the book - National Sunday Law. According to Rational Wiki the book is distributed by the Seventh Day Adventist and written by A Jan Marcussen. The book was written in 1983. In the book they claim that the United States of America wants to pass a law declaring that Sunday is the day of rest - the Sabbath. They claim that the Pope and the Catholic church is behind this. "When this happens it will be the trigger that unleashes the coming fulfillment of the Bible prophecies in Daniel and Revelation."

According to rational Wiki:

the belief tying Sunday blue laws to Bible prophecy and the Antichrist appears to come from Ellen G. White's book The Great Controversy, specifically naming a universal Sunday law as the enforced taking of the mark of the beast that will unleash great persecution of Sabbath-keepers just before the Second Coming. The most notable attempt at passing a national blue law was in 1888, coincidentally or not the same year the third edition of The Great Controversy was released. The fourth and last edition in 1911, still containing this national Sunday law teaching, is still in circulation today. This fear of a coming national Sunday law became a conspiracy theory and something that must inevitably happen because, after all, Bible prophecy (or at least Ellen G. White's peculiar interpretation of it) says it will.

Several books cheaply printed for mass distribution continue to promote fear of a coming national Sunday law, among them National Sunday Law by A. Jan Marcussen and the anonymous National Sunday Law Crisis. Marcussen's book ties other issues into the conspiracy; for example, there is a conspiracy to bring back the death penalty so Sabbath-keepers can be executed once the national Sunday law is enacted. Marcussen's book has been mysteriously showing up since 1983 in laundromats, phone booths, rest areas, and unsolicited in the mail


So you know I am throwing away the book.

Just a note to say that I don't believe in the teaching of the Seventh Day Adventists however I do admire their work in the communities around Trinidad.

  1. You might want to read the book this time around after seeing the proposal by the EU Sunday Alliance

  2. Well i have found the website for the European Sunday Alliance, but not one news article on them, or their cause, press releases, protests, actions, etc. I did find an article on ABC news dated December 3rd 2009 which says that the German High Court declared that Sunday should not be a shopping day and that stores should be closed. It should be noted that only 30% of Germany is catholic... The article reads

    "This is a result of Germany's long-held resistance to Sunday shopping even in the face of growing consumerism.

    Yet many of Germany's 16 states have already made some exceptions, allowing stores to open a few Sundays a year. And in Berlin the city government had gone the furthest in chipping away at the ban on Sunday trading. In 2006 the German capital gave the green light for retailers to open on 10 Sundays a year, including the four Advent Sundays preceding Christmas.

    However, Germany's Constitutional Court has now upheld a complaint made by the country's Catholic and Protestant churches, based on a clause in the German constitution that Sunday should be a day of rest and "spiritual elevation."

  3. Another book to be thrown away? Oh well, you should have attend the bible study thing to know the meaning of that book. If the Sunday Law comes, you'll be surprised that everything in that book is true.

  5. no where in the bible does GOD change the sabbath from saturday to sunday.Even that JESUS rose on a sunday,that has nothing to do with the sabbath that GOD set forth at creation.(Genesis 2:2)Every excuse i hear to worship on sunday is man-made and has no biblical foundation.The LORD said "in vain do they worship me,teaching the doctrines of men".

  6. Here is the email address to read the entire booklet: http://www.seventh-day.org/NSL-1.htm



    What about 666? Let's take a shocking look.

    On the Pope's official mitre is the title "Vicarius Filii Dei" which means "Vicar of the Son of God." The claim that this is his official title has been stated publicly through the years. The April 18, 1915 issue of Our Sunday Visitor, states: "The letters inscribed in the Pope's mitre are these: "VICARIUS FILII DEI," which is 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 = l
    C = 100
    A = 0
    R = 0
    I = l
    U = 5
    S = O


    "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
    ----------- Total = 666!


    In Greek, Hebrew, and Latin, it comes out the same.

    I want to be quick to say that when a person shares this shocking revelation, he must be kind and tactful. We must let people know that God loves all. The truth must be told - but always in kindness.

    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 forbade 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!

    What John sees next is so unbelievable that he's stunned.

  7. Lies Lies Lies - The above information about the title of the pope is all made up by members of the Seven day Adventist church. There are photos of popes and paintings from the past with the Pope's tiara... and NOT ONE has the title "Vicarius Filii Dei" as they claim. As for the title "the Dark Ages" this was first coined by a Catholic Cardinal in his "History of the Church" in 1602,and was in relation to the tenth and eleventh centuries. Read your history of Europe at the time. The term has nothing to do with bible reading, and everything to do about war vioence and failure of financial and social structures.

  8. Islamists would never allow a Sunday law to be passed. They have gained control, much to America's ruin.
