“Again, Christ was crucified and resurrected in the spring, near the time of the moon festival. Why not have the same time as the heathen and even do as they did, but call it in honor of Christ’s resurrection.  The cakes to the queen of heaven became the hot cross buns.  The forty days of ‘weeping for Tammuz’ became Lent; and at the close of Lent came Easter Sunday, a counterfeit masterpiece.”

“The voice was silent for a time.  The old man’s face darkened as he seemed to see, in the embers of the fire, a sinister event against which he would cry out. Suddenly there rang out in the stillness the trumpet like tones that had called to the men on the battlefield, when as a drummer boy, he had snatched up the colors where a dying bearer had fallen, and rallied a regiment that had nearly broken.

“Oh the cowards! The cowards! They allowed the flag of God, His holy Sabbath, to trail in the dust.  They trampled it under their feet, they exalted the sun’s day; they broke the command of God, and all in the name of the One who had given His life so save His people from that very thing!

“Oh, how Jesus in heaven must have wept when His so-called followers, to gain influence, set up the mark of rebellion against heaven—Sunday.  And how He must weep today people profess to honor. His resurrection by trampling on His day and honoring the flag of the defeated foe.  God forgive our nation if she ever passes a law to do that.  If she passes a national Sunday law”

“Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples; and they are written for our admonition, upon whom he ends of the world are come.  Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall” (1Corinthians 10:11-12).

“It was by associating with idolaters and joining in their festivities that the Hebrews were led to transgress God’s law and bring His judgments upon the nation.  So now it is by leading the followers of Christ to associate with the ungodly and unite in their amusements that Satan is most successful in alluring them into sin.   Come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean (2 Corinthians 6:17).

“God requires of His people now as great a distinction from the world, in customs, habits, and principles, as He required of Israel anciently. If they faithfully follow the teachings of His Word, this distinction will exist; it cannot be otherwise.  The warnings given to the Hebrews against assimilating with the heathen were not more direct or explicit than are those forbidding Christians to conform to the spirit and customs of the ungodly”.  (Patriarchs and Prophets, 457-458)
