Sunday Law (1911)

If you think the coming Sunday Law is just a joke, and that they'll never do it, think again.

In 1911 there already was such a law proposal. The legislation was known as the "American State Papers - Sunday Legislation". Also better known as "the Blue Laws".



Here's an excerpt from it:

Every man and woman shall repair in the morning to the divine service and sermons preached upon the Sabbath day, and in the afternoon to divine service, and catechising, upon pain for the first fault to lose their provision and the allowance for the whole week following; for the second, to lose the said allowance and also be whipt ; and for the third to suffer death.
- American State Papers

And another one:

Whosoever shall profane the Lord's day, or any part of it, either by sinful servile work, or by unlawful sport, recreation, or otherwise, whether wilfully or in a careless neglect, shall be duly punished by fine, imprisonment, or corporally, according to the nature, and measure of the sinn, and offence. But if the court upon examination, by clear, and satisfying evidence find that the sin was proudly, presumptuously, and with a high hand committed against the known command and authority of the blessed God, such a person therein despising and reproaching the Lord, shall be put to death, that all others may feare and shun such provoking rebellious courses.
- American State Papers

So it very much looks like an attempt to get everybody to acknowledge the Sunday as the Sabbath by going to a service on that day. If you don't show up you will be punished accordingly. These guys are serious!

That's a very scary prospect. How are we ever to overcome this? Well, with man this is not possible, but with God...

But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
- Matthew 19:26 (KJV)

I think it's very important to think about these things now, so that we can prepared later.

The final movements will be rapid ones.
