Sunday defense

Keeping the Sabbath or compromising it?

Defend Sunday (October, page 34)? We need to take it back. Sunday is God's holy day, and we are commanded to keep it holy. Anything less exhibits unbelief and the absence of the fear of God. I see nothing holy in any sport. I see exaltation of self and worship of idols in all sports. How do we take it back? Weekly. Why aren't our children accustomed to sacred time? Because we don't live it. The article was a good one, just not deep enough. At least it gets us started thinking and talking about taking back our Sunday. Jesus must really be disturbed about the way we treat our Sunday. I can almost see him weeping for us.
