“Oh, the unspeakable greatness of that exchange,—the Sinless One is condemned, and he who is guilty goes free; the Blessing bears the curse, and the cursed is brought into blessing; the Life dies, and the dead live; the Glory is whelmed in darkness, and he who knew nothing but confusion of face is clothed with glory.” Trailady

America steadily sliding down a slippery slope

The Sunday movement is now making its way in darkness. The leaders are concealing the true issue, and many who unite in the movement do not themselves see whither the undercurrent is tending. . . . They are working in blindness. They do not see that if a Protestant government sacrifices the principles that have made them a free, independent nation, and through legislation brings into the Constitution principles that will propagate papal falsehood and papal delusion, they are plunging into the Roman horrors of the Dark Ages.—RH Extra, Dec. 11, 1888. (Last Day Events, p. 125.)

Prayer in school, Ten Commandments and crosses in public places, In God We Trust on our coins, Abortion, Save the persecuted Christians around the world, Homosexuality/Lesbianism, Evolution in public schools, all of these and more are the vehicles for the Sunday movement.

How? Because they all represent religio-political issues fought by religious organizations moving the United States government to do their bidding. They all stand for forcing this nation to transform from a purely civil government to a Christian nation.

Again and again I hear Seventh-day Adventists getting on the bandwagon with other Evangelical Christians on these political issues. Adventists, wake up! You are signing your own death warrant! Your focus should be on the Three Angels messages—1) the hour of judgment has come, 2) corrupted religion is pervasive throughout even the Protestant denominations, 3) and anyone who prefers the traditions of men over the commandments of God feels the utter separation from Him and they have not rest, for there is no peace with the wicked.

In the movements now in progress in the United States to secure for the institutions and usages of the church the support of the state, Protestants are following in the steps of papists. Nay, more, they are opening the door for the papacy to regain in Protestant America the supremacy which she has lost in the Old World. And that which gives greater significance to this movement is the fact that the principal object contemplated is the enforcement of Sunday observance—a custom which originated with Rome, and which she claims as the sign of her authority. It is the spirit of the papacy—the spirit of conformity to worldly customs, the veneration for human traditions above the commandments of God—that is permeating the Protestant churches and leading them on to do the same work of Sunday exaltation which the papacy has done before them. —Great Controversy, p. 573.

When the leading churches of the United States, uniting upon such points of doctrine as are held by them in common, shall influence the state to enforce their decrees and to sustain their institutions, then Protestant America will have formed an image of the Roman hierarchy, and the infliction of civil penalties upon dissenters will inevitably result. —Great Controversy, p. 445.
