1. The very first thing recorded in the Bible is work done on Sunday, the first day of the week. If God worked on this day, how can it be wicked for us to work on Sunday?
  2. God commands men to work upon the first day of the week (Exodus 20:8-11). Is it wrong to obey God?
  3. None of the Patriarchs ever kept it holy.
  4. None of the holy Prophets ever kept it holy.
  5. By the express command of God, His people used the first day of the week as a common working day.
  6. God himself calls it a working day (Ezekiel 46:1).
  7. God did not rest upon it.
  8. God never blessed it.
  9. Jesus Christ did not rest upon it.
  10. Jesus was a carpenter (Mark 6:3), and worked at his trade until he was 30 years old. He worked 6 days a week, and kept the sabbath day holy.
  11. The apostles worked during the same time, and kept the sabbath day holy (Paul was a tentmaker, Acts 18:3).
  12. The Apostles never rested upon it.
  13. Jesus Christ never blessed it.
  14. It has never been blessed by any divine authority.
  15. It has never been sanctified.
  16. No law was ever given to enforce the keeping of it, hence it is no transgression to work upon it. "Where no law is, there is no transgression" (Romans 4:15).
  17. The New Testament nowhere forbids work to be done on it.
  18. No penalty is provided for its violation.
  19. No blessing is promised for its observance.
  20. No regulation is given as to how it ought to be observed. Would this be so if the Lord wished us to keep it?
  21. It is never called the Christian Sabbath.
  22. It is never called the sabbath day at all.
  23. It is never called the Lord's Day.
  24. It is never called even a rest day.
  25. No sacred title whatever is applied to it. Then why should we call it holy?
  26. It was simply called the "first day of the week".
  27. Jesus never mentioned it in any way, never took its name upon his lips, so far as the record shows.
  28. Neither God, Christ, nor inspired men ever said one word in favor of Sunday as a Holy day.
  29. The Bible nowhere says that the first day of the week commemorates the resurrection of Christ. Baptism commemorates the burial and resurrection of Jesus! (Romans 6:3-5).
  30. Finally, the New Testament is totally silent with regard to any change of the sabbath day or any sacredness for the first day.
