Did the Catholic Church change the Sabbath to Sunday?
I have a pamphlet given from a Seventh-day Adventist called “Rome’s Challenge: Why do Protestants Kepp Sunday?” It’s a reprint of various articles from the Catholic Mirror, Sep. 2, 1893. It’s basically a challenge that this publication gave to Sunday-keeping Protestants: why do they keep Sunday if they deny the authority of the Catholic Church?
One of the essential quotes is as follows:
“The Catholic Church for over one thousand years before the existence of a Protestant, by virtue of her divine mission, changed the day from Saturday to Sunday.”
My question is this: is this quote actually heresy? If so, what is the correct reason? If not, how can I defend this statement to a SDA?
