Will Trump Sign the National Sunday Law?

Will Trump Sign the National Sunday Law?
Posted by in Facebook's Pentecostal Theology Group View the Original Post

National Sunday law is a conspiracy theory which alleges that the United States government is on the verge of enacting a national blue law that would make Sunday a day of rest and worship. The theory is based on the idea that the Pope is the Antichrist and the Mark of the Beast is worshipped on Sunday. Sinister forces (read: the Vatican) are conspiring to enact a national Sunday law in the United States, which would be the trigger that unleashes the fulfilment of the prophecies found in the Biblical books of Daniel and Revelation. In addition, this law would outlaw worshipping on Saturday, thus beginning a period of persecution of those who worship on Saturday, or Sabbath. This idea originated within Seventh-day Adventism (which considers the Sabbath to be Saturday), and some on the fringes of the SDA church have taken a handful of failed Congressional bills and papal writings and inflated them into the trigger of the apocalypse. This is quite ironic considering that you would think blue law opposition would come from more secular groups.

Also consider

  • Blue laws already exist in many states/counties/municipalities, restricting anything from the sale of alcoholic beverages to, in the past, businesses being open at all on Sunday. What is so special about a national Sunday law that would make it the trigger that sets off the fulfilment of Bible prophecy, when the U.S. was already blanketed with state and local blue laws?
  • The trend over the past four decades has been to repeal those blue laws. Any attempt today at introducing such a bill in the U.S. Congress for a national law would be laughed at.
  • Such a law would be blatantly unconstitutional under the Establishment Clause. Even if such a bill passed Congress, it would be immediately stayed by the courts and struck down soon thereafter.
  • A law requiring businesses to close? In the United States? That might cut into corporate profits! Think of the idle rich job creators, somebody. It seems politically impossible.
  • Such a law would be widely viewed as antisemitic as well as anti-Seventh-day-Adventist.
  • Belief that such a law is inevitably coming is based on a peculiar interpretation of Bible prophecy and fears dating from the late 1800s that have ossified into a persistent conspiracy theory, not on any real legislative priorities in Congress. A quick look at thomas.loc.gov shows nothing of the sort introduced in Congress in recent years. The closest things have been bills mentioning Sunday premium pay or designating certain Sundays “Drive Safer Sunday” or “Parent’s Day”.
  • What is so special about the United States that a national Sunday law in the U.S. would trigger the end times? Would a national Sunday law in Thailand, Ukraine, or the Democratic Republic of the Congo also trigger the end times?
  • Where they get Sunday worship as the mark of the beast is anyone’s guess. (The number of the beast is described in Revelation 13 as 666, and the mark of the beast is described as a physical mark on the hand or forehead.)

    I remember when the Blue Law was in effect. People got along fine with businesses being closed on Sunday. They had more family time together.

      I don’t agree with making such a law and, hopefully, it is a “conspiracy theory” w/o any basis on fact.

      For the GOP to even consider it shows how religious rather than truthful a political party it has become.

      “Can Democratic Socialist Party member’s be Christians?”

      Why not? Is now political party an acid test for being a Christian?

    • Reply July 7, 2019

      CW Sellers

      Not an acid test, but a challenge of Godly character. Name one with that character! The Godly do not promote Immorality and disrespect! It’s a simple process.

      CW Sellers Where in the Bible do we see one’s political affiliation a test of character? That would surely suggest a lot of doubt as to whether evangelical Christians in the Republican party are saved!

      Nelson Banuchi, maybe you should research Paul the Roman (political party of the day) similar to the Democratic Socialist Party!

    • Reply July 7, 2019

      Nelson Banuchi

      CW Sellers What? You think the Republican party is no different from the Roman “party” then or the Democrats today?

      Respectfully, and without any intention to put down, but I really can’t spend my time responding to comments that, from my view, are so biased as to be ridiculous, so I will end my comments to you here.

      CW Sellers Democrats were never socialists and never will be, yet they are for the working class and those held back by prejudices and /or forced into dominion by the rich.

    Saturday social events rely on Christian and secular accommodation businesses cleaning their rooms sometime on sundays; ready for Christian retirees needing accommodation sunday night in their travels to admire God’s creation.

      on sundays i help cook and serve all our members a free lunch; as it often the only proper meal they have all week. In Australia i help clean my Resort bedrooms on sundays, so we can entertain Christian strangers on sunday nights.

    I can see this coming about in the guise of a world wide day to combat climate change. There will be a Sunday law alright where no one will be able to work and business will not be allowed, by law, to continue on that day to combat greenhouse gas emissions. It will be a law and the United States will enforce it. The Pope has invited all heads of state to the Vatican on May 17 2020 to discuss an emergency plan to combat climate change. The hidden agenda and always has been to enact a Sunday law, to get all countries to recognize the need for this law and eventually order by law that all should worship on Sunday to bring the family together. Those that refuse to worship on the Sun Day, the Venerable day of the sun, that was dedicated for Pagan worship, Will be prosecuted by law, and unfortunately all the people’s of the world will be on board with it. In the guise of course to save the planet.
