“sharia law Sunday”

Ok, you know that things are going to be weird when someone combines two different doctrinal ideas from two different religions.

 

Sunday laws are of course from the doctrinally weird ideas of ellen g white / seventh day adventism.

 

sharia laws are islams theocratic law system.

 

So if I follow this persons thinking process. Some how ‘Sunday laws’ will become a sharia law system. This means that seventh day adventists (SDA) and Jewish folk who keep the Law of God (Law of Moses) will be saved due to the Sabbath & Ten Commandment keeping. Meanwhile those of us who are supposedly catholic, moslem and protestant (And the rest of the worlds religions) will be ‘marked’ with the mark of the beast AKA Sunday keepers and hell bound.

 

Well here’s some problems with that mode of thinking.

 

Islam’s day of rest is Friday.

 

Here’s just one example:

 

” The significance of Friday in the life of a believer.”

——————————–

Within islam are many holy days, celebrations of which have nothing to do with Christianity and have origins in arab pagan practices.

 

 

Sharia law is made up of at least three documents.

 

1 Quran

2 Sunnah

3 Hadiths

 

All of these documents written long before seventh day adventists (SDA), mormons (LDS) & jehovahs witnesses (JW) came into being in the 1800s. So if islamic law existed before these groups than it is unlikely that islamic theocratic laws will be the dreaded “Sunday laws” that ellen g white wrote of in following book examples:

——————————————-

“The Mark of the Beast—When Sunday observance shall be enforced by law, and the world shall be enlightened concerning the obligation of the true Sabbath, then whoever shall transgress the command of God, to obey a precept which has no higher authority than that of Rome, will thereby honor popery above God. He is paying homage to Rome, and to the power which enforces the institution ordained by Rome. He is worshiping the beast and his image. As men then reject the institution which God has declared to be the sign of His authority, and honor in its stead that which Rome has chosen as the token of her supremacy, they will thereby accept the sign of allegiance to Rome,—“the mark of the beast.” And it is not until the issue is thus plainly set before the people, and they are brought to choose between the commandments of God and the commandments of men, that those who continue in transgression will receive “the mark of the beast.”—The Great Controversy, 449 (1888). {Ev 233.4}”

“Reception of Mark of the Beast Future—The change of the Sabbath is the sign or mark of the authority of the Romish church. Those who, understanding the claims of the fourth commandment, choose to observe the false sabbath in the place of the true, are thereby paying homage to that power by which alone it is commanded. The mark of the beast is the papal sabbath, which has been accepted by the world in the place of the day of God’s appointment. {Ev 234.1}”

 

“No one has yet received the mark of the beast. The testing time has not yet come. There are true Christians in every church, not excepting the Roman Catholic communion. None are condemned until they have had the light and have seen the obligation of the fourth commandment. But when the decree shall go forth enforcing the counterfeit sabbath, and the loud cry of the third angel shall warn men against the worship of the beast and his image, the line will be clearly drawn between the false and the true. Then those who still continue in transgression will receive the mark of the beast. {Ev 234.2}”

 

“With rapid steps we are approaching this period. When Protestant churches shall unite with the secular power to sustain a false religion, for opposing which their ancestors endured the fiercest persecution, then will the papal sabbath be enforced by the combined authority of church and state. There will be a national apostasy, which will end only in national ruin.—Manuscript 51, 1899. {Ev 235.1}”

 

“When Seal of God Is Refused—If the light of truth has been presented to you, revealing the Sabbath of the fourth commandment, and showing that there is no foundation in the Word of God for Sunday observance, and yet you still cling to the false sabbath, refusing to keep holy the Sabbath which God calls “My holy day,” you receive the mark of the beast. When does this take place? When you obey the decree that commands you to cease from labor on Sunday and worship God, while you know that there is not a word in the Bible showing Sunday to be other than a common working day, you consent to receive the mark of the beast, and refuse the seal of God.—The Review and Herald, July 13, 1897. {Ev 235.2}”

————————————-

Now how is islamic sharia laws related to the roman catholic church?

 

Simple. It is not relatable.

 

So if islamic laws are the devils theocratic system that would destroy both Jews & Christians then such man made systems would get rid of both groups not just the sda.

 

Perhaps those in the ‘sda movement’ need to be concerned for secular and islamic laws that would destroy everyone. Not just their own organization.
