    A Reply to "What Do the Scriptures Say About the Sabbath?"

    A careful review and reply to the arguments on which the worldwide Church of God based its abandonment of the Seventh-day Sabbath.

    A REPLY TO “WHAT DO THE SCRIPTURES SAY ABOUT THE SABBATH?”
    Frank B. Holbrook

    In 1995, the Worldwide Church of God, a Sabbatarian denomination, published an extended
    documententitled, “What Do the Scriptures Say About the Sabbath?” as a supplement to the
    organization’s well-known journal, The Plain Truth. In this statement the present leaders surprisingly deny that Christians are under any moral obligation to observe the Sabbath precept of the Ten Commandments.

    They write:

    As we in the Worldwide Church of God continue to worship Jesus Christ on the seventh day,
    we will be asked why we do differently than most Christian churches. We will have to explain why
    we worship on the seventh day, and the honest answer is that we used to think that we absolutely
    had to, but we no longer think that. Then we’ll be asked why we continue to worship on the seventh
    day, and the honest answer is that we are free to be different” (p. 23).
