The Sunday Rest Bill and the Trinity

We all know that Sunday laws are on the statute books of America, and many Seventh-day Adventists are waiting for the Sunday law to be enforced in fulfillment of the mark of the beast in Revelation 13. But what the majority of Seventh-day Adventists don't realize, is that attached to the Sunday law bills was another 'religious' law concerning the Trinity. Take a look at the following concerning the Breckinridge Bill, of which A.T.Jones and other Adventist leaders spoke against:
"Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That it shall be unlawful for any person or corporation, or employe of any person or corporation in the District of Columbia, to perform any secular labor or business, or to cause the same to be performed by any person in their employment on Sunday, except works of necessity or mercy; nor shall it be lawful for any person or corporation to receive pay for labor or services performed or rendered in violation of this act ...." ( Arguments on the Breckinridge Sunday Bill pdf pg. 1)
"...In this connection let me say, gentlemen, that the District of Columbia has just the same kind of a Sunday law as that of Ohio. This law of the District of Columbia was in force when this book was issued which I hold in my hand, which was April 1, 1868; and I am told that this law (which I will read) was re-enacted in 1874. I now quote from the law. Section 1 provides that- 'If any person shall DENY THE TRINITY, he shall, for the first offense, be bored through the tongue, and fined twenty pounds; ... and for the second offense, the offender being thereof convict as aforesaid, shall be stigmatized by burning on the forehead with the letter B, and fined forty pounds; and for the third offense, the offender being thereof convict as aforesaid, shall suffer death, without the benefit of the clergy.' Section l0 of the same law has this:- 'No person whatever shall do any bodily labor on the Lord's day, commonly called Sunday ... Now, gentlemen, that law has never been repealed." ( ibid pdf pg. 55)
"Taking this to some lawyers, they told us that the old law we had found was still binding. This is a very strict law, and provides that the offender shall pay a fine of 200 pounds of tobacco. But that which makes this law [Sunday law] appear so strange, is that it is found IN DIRECT CONNECTION with another statute which provides that any one who publicly denies the Trinity as commonly held, shall, for the first offense, have his tongue bored through, and for the third offense, suffer death without the benefit of the clergy. Possibly the reason why the promoters of the present Sunday law ignore the one now on the statutes, is because it is in the company of another law so barbarous in its make-up, thus showing the nature of the company Sunday laws of the past have always kept." (Review and Herald, Jan.21, 1890, Vol.67, No.3, p.44)
"There is now, on the statute-books of this District, an old Maryland law which has never been repealed, under which a person convicted of denying the Trinity, received the mark 'B' in his forehead [reading statute of date Oct. 26, 1723]." (Review and Herald, Feb.4, 1890, Vol.67, No.5, p.74)
So what law on the statute books is in 'direct connection' to the Sunday rest bill? The law that anyone who publicly denies the trinity will be persecuted. And we know that according to Rome, Sunday is directly connected to their trinity god ... "every Sunday is devoted to the honor of the Most Holy Trinity, that every Sunday is sanctified and consecrated to the triune God." (source) ... "Question 1092. What is Sunday, or the Lord's Day in general? A. It is a day dedicated by the Apostles to the honour of the most holy Trinity." (The Douay Catechism of 1649)
"It will also be noticed that this 'league' [The International Sunday Observance League] has other plans besides the intention to prosecute those who will not bow to their man-made Sabbath. Perhaps they will prosecute those who do not believe in the Trinity. Their, spiritual ancestors, the Puritans, considered the arrest and punishment of those who rejected this church dogma as something pleasing to the Deity ... The doctrine of the Trinity and the sacredness of Sunday are BOTH orthodox plums of marvelous sweetness to the ministerial too." (Review and Herald, Nov.20, 1894, Vol.71, No.46, p.730)
And what are all the churches uniting on today? THE TRINITY! See how Trinity doctrine is the core issue for ECUMENICAL GOD OF ROME. So Rome is uniting all the churches on it's Trinity god ready for the mark to be enforced!
Now attached to the Sunday law bill in Ohio, we find the following significant exemption:
"The proviso of the Sunday law exempts those only who conscientiously observe the seventh day of the week as the Sabbath." ( Arguments on the Breckinridge Sunday Bill pdf pg. 9 ).
So you would think the Seventh-day Sabbath keepers would be exempt? But remember, those who DENY the trinity would also be punished! Do you see the deception of Rome? Is this going to factor into the coming Sunday law? We will see. But the fact shows that this is not just about the Sunday law, as the Trinity god of Rome is closely connected to it.
Remember, you can be a Sabbath keeper and still be worshipping the beast by accepting the mark OR name, OR number of the beast. See our page: Mark OR Name OR Number of the Beast. It is imperative that we stand on the truth of God's Word, and NOT follow the teachings of men.
Let us be followers of Jesus Christ, not man!
