Sunday, not Sabbath, is, and has been, the traditional day of worship for the vast majority of Christendom. Because of this fact, numerous Christians—including many pastors—have just accepted this practice without careful study. This has played into the hands of sabbatarians. They have well-though-out arguments that are very compelling for those who are not thoroughly grounded in good biblical hermeneutics. The Sabbath and the Lord’s day, by HM Riggle shows convincingly that Seventh-day Adventist arguments for Seventh-day Sabbath keeping are not biblical. Of interest to our readers is the way Riggle clearly shows the difference between the Sinai Covenant and the New Covenant. You will not be disappointed with the biblical scholarship of this book.

“The Law” embraces the whole Mosaic law, moral, civil, and ceremonial

The law was given by Moses, and the law of Moses includes the Decalog
The law was not given till the time of Moses and Sinai
Their fathers did not have the Decalog as worded on the tables.
The Law was given only to the children of Israel
The Gentiles did not have the law
The rewards and penalties of the law were all temporal
God’s eternal law of righteousness existed before the law of Sinai was given
The original law is superior to the law of Sinai
The Mosaic law was funded upon the higher and original law
The law of Sinai was given to restrain criminals who would only obey God through fear.
The letter of the law is not binding upon Christians as a coercive code.
