Review: National Sunday Law
Written by A. Jan Marcussen
AT Publications / 2006 / 70 pages
Some months ago, I found a book on my doorstep when I came home from work. I thought to myself, “If someone is going to go out of their way to give me this book, then God damn it, I’m gonna read it.” That day came today when I was home not feeling well, taking a nice long bath. It ain’t easy feelin’ queasy, but a hot bath and a good book always helps.
So first off, before getting into the content, I would like to comment on the writing style. I enjoyed how the author chose to make emphasis. He would use lots of exclamation points. Imagine that! How wonderful it is to be given notice when to pay attention! Just like that.. This was common throughout the book. There were also many informal references to the personal life of the author, including experience of what happened to him just the day before. He made it seem as if he was speaking to me directly, rather than me just reading his words.
The theme of this book was centered around the fact that Sunday is not the end of the week, but rather the beginning of the week. I found that to be interesting because I remember being in school as a small child learning that Sunday was the first day of the week, and I thought that was strange because school started on a Monday. My parents went to work on Monday. I’ve made mention of this in my adult life on at least one occasion, and I wasn’t taken seriously. It’s like everyone knows that Sunday is the end of the week.. but it’s not. That’s what this book is about.
Of course it goes in deeper than that. See it’s the Babylons that created Sunday as a day of rest. This is because of their pagan worship of the sun. The Romans picked up this tradition and also used Sunday as a day of rest. When Christianity was adopted by the Roman empire, they kept with Sunday being the day of rest.. even though it was the first day of the week! Clearly, God wants us to rest on Saturday! He worked from Sunday to Friday and so should we. Later the Catholics and Protestants took the same tradition. I never really knew the difference between the three, but always figured the devil was in the details. But no, the devil is in the detail of which day of the week to lounge around and do nothing.
The author explains that Christians, Catholics and Protestants are each accepting the Mark of the Beast over the Seal of the Lord, because of this recognition of Sunday. He goes into detail about how there are laws on the books in many states that clearly say that you cannot work on a Sunday, and other similar laws that legally force you to recognize Sunday as the sabbath. More of these laws will come and will eventually apply world-wide. Accepting these laws is accepting the Mark of the Beast! The remainder of the book goes into detail about final judgment on those that make this acceptance.
At the very end, we are presented with more information.. if you send $5 for shipping and handling to a PO box in Thompsonville, Illinois. You will be sent a follow-up book with details about what you can do, as well as information about any churches that actually follow the requirements necessary for a group to constitute as a “remnant church” of Revelation 12:17. I’m not real sure what that’s all about, but it sounds pretty bitchin’ to me. Count my 5-spot spent.
In the mean time, the book clearly states that Christians, Catholics and Protestants are going to spend eternity in fiery damnation because of their belief in Sunday as a day of rest. I suggest you play it safe and do nothing on Saturday and Sunday.Back to Top
