On April 19, 2022, Crisis Magazine, a prominent Catholic conservative website, called for the restoration of Sunday in our “Christian culture.” To that end, they’re looking at Sunday, the first day of the week, as the “eighth day.” This is a reference that is used to try to demonstrate that the Sabbath was changed from Saturday to Sunday.
Here is what Crisis Magazine published on April 19, 2022: “Reclaiming such ideas like the Eighth Day is no small part in the requisite work for the restoration of Christian culture … When the Good News of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ spread over the world, it came with a marvelous piece of poetry. Christians referred to Sunday, traditionally considered the first day of the week, as the Eighth Day.”
This call to bring Sunday back into our Christian culture has nothing to do with the gospel and everything to do with politics. When Crisis Magazine calls for Sunday to be reclaimed, it’s more about mobilizing political action than anything else. True social reforms cannot be achieved through political action or by enforcing Sunday as a day of rest through state power. Laws can limit people’s actions, but they can’t change their hearts. And if churches want to impose Sunday by legislation, forcing men to rest, this means that they have abandoned their gospel commission and have become political lobbyists, relying on the state’s strong arm to impose church doctrine on society. #sda #adventist #adventista
