Sunday Law / Climate Change
Will "climage change" bring in the Sunday law?
Check out this article about the UN Climate Change Conference.
There has been a lot of talk about an international day of rest for the climate (most likely Sunday).
Dr. Smadja's daring plan calls for an international day of rest (about 53 days per year) plus approximately 15 "holidays" where cumulatively there would be a cessation of all productive activity for approximately 70 days, or about 20% of the year. These days of "non-activity" would help achieve the shared goal outlined in the Paris Climate Conference (COP21) of a 20% reduction of pollution globally by 2050, with the aim of keeping global warming below 2 degrees Celsius.
There are different names for such a day:
Slow Sunday, Shutoff Sunday, Digital Shabbat, Sunday Sabbath, Sunday Rest, Family Day, Earth Day, Green Day, Green Sabbath, Emission Free Day, Fossil-Fuel free Day, Low Carbon Day are some the names given for Sunday as a day of Rest. Sunday Bans on cars and shopping have been passed as laws in Paris and Poland. Italy plans to pass a Sunday Law for the family very soon.
But, it's good to point out that the Sunday law will come from the Sunday churches.
Men in responsible positions will not only ignore and despise the Sabbath themselves, but from the sacred desk will urge upon the people the observance of the first day of the week, pleading tradition and custom in behalf of this man-made institution. They will point to calamities on land and sea-to the storms of wind, the floods, the earthquakes, the destruction by fire-as judgments indicating God's displeasure because Sunday is not sacredly observed. These calamities will increase more and more, one disaster will follow close upon the heels of another; and those who make void the law of God will point to the few who are keeping the Sabbath of the fourth commandment as the ones who are bringing wrath upon the world. This falsehood is Satan's device that he may ensnare the unwary.
- Ellen White, Christian Service, p. 155
The Sunday law is in response to the disasters.
