Peace be with you!
I’ve got a Protestant on another site arguing against Sunday worship. I can’t even cite the New Covenant as evidence because in his first post he said “and don’t cite some verse about a new covenant with man”. So he won’t accept any of that anyway.
He posted these quotes from publications I’ve never heard of before. This is supposed to disprove Sunday worship (and he says these are all written by Catholics):
“Sunday is a Catholic institution, and its claim to observance can be defended only on Catholic principles. From beginning to end of Scripture THERE IS NOT A SINGLE PASSAGE that warrants the transfer of weekly public worship from the last day of the week to the first”.- Catholic Press, Sydney, Australia, August, 1900.
"Ques.- Have you any other way of proving that the Church has power to institute festivals of precept?
"Ans.- Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with her: She could not have substituted the observance of Sunday, the first day of the week, for the observance of Saturday, the seventh day, a change for which THERE IS NO SCRIPTURAL AUTHORITY- Stephen Keenan, Doctrinal Catechism, p.176.
“Not the Creator of the Universe, in Genesis 2:1-3, - but the Catholic Church can claim the honor of having granted man a pause to his work every seven days”.- S.C. Mosna, Staria della Domenica, 1969, p.366-367.
I looked at Doctrinal Catechism on this site: biblelight.net/keenan.htm and that quote does not appear on page 176.
I believe this person got his quotes from this site: seventh-day.org/historians.htm I guess I’ll probably just call him on posting from a biased second hand source, but does anyone know of, or has read, any of the publications that contain these quotes?
