THE SABBATH.
[A synopsis of the sermon preached by
1 Rer. W. R. Potter, st the Beptist Church,
j August 26th.J
Ex. 20:8, "Remember tho Sabbath day
to keep it bolr."
Iu view of the fact thst the profana?
tion of tho Sabbath has become common
with Christian? and all alike, and with
name the feurth commandment almost
ontiroly ignored, it occurs to me that a
J discussion of this theme, at this time and
I this place, may not be amiss.
[' I ask you to consider with me, there?
fore, without further introductory re?
marks. I. The origin. II. The posi?
tion. III. The purpose of the Sabbath.
IV. How violated.
1. As to tho origin. Concerning the
time when the Sabbath was instituted
there hare been different opinions. Somo
maintain that the sanclification of the
Sabbath spoken of in den.2:2 3 is only by
way ol anticipation and that the historian
writing after if was instituted there,
gircs the reason of its institution, and
that is thought to be the case, as it is not
mentioned during the patriarchiai age.
Rut agaitft this opinion it might be
named; (1) that it cannot' be easily sup
nosed that the inspired penman would
have mentioned the sanctiticatiou of the
Sabbath among the first transactions if it
had not taken place until 2500 years af?
terwards. (2). Futherrnorc, it is no
proef against its existence because it is
not mentioned. There aro a great many
things iu the Bible implied and taken for
granted. (3). That the Sabbath was
mentioned as a well known solemnity be?
fore the law was published from Jit.
Sinai, we have only to refer te den. 2:23.
where we are told that after God had fin?
ished His work of creation, He bless?
ed the 7th day and set it apart for a
sacred use. Again in Ex. 16:33, where
the children of Israel are commanded to
gather twicc as much Manna on the o'th
day, in order to be prepared for the Sab?
bath of rest. It follows, taking the Au?
thority of these books for fronted, that
the Sabbath was instituted at the begin?
ning and is co-extensive with all time.
"When tho morning stars sang together
and all the sons of God shouted for joy;'
when God said: "Let there bo light and
light there was." After He had made all
things, nothing by the word of His power,
then it was that Ho ceased from His la?
bors and sanctified the 7th day, as a holy
day, to be a perpetual memorial of His
finished work.
(4). Another argument for the early
institution of the Sabbath is the very
word with which the 4th commandment
begins: ''Remember," etc., which inti?
mates that the Sabbath bad been insti?
tuted and observed at the beginning but
had fallen into neglect by the .lews and it
was requisite, therefore, that they should
be reminded of it.
Now, tinder the Christian dispensation,
the Sabbath has been changed from the
seventh to the first day of the week. Some
(iiapule Hint sue)) a change has Leen made,
and yet the arguments for such a change
are conclusive. (1) It was on tho first
day of tho week that Christ made repeat?
ed visits to His deciples. (2). On this
day the apostles were assembled, when tho
Holy Ghost camo down upon them and
qualified them for their work, (3). On
this day we Gnd Paul preaching at Troas
(4) Called fin Rev. 1:10) "The Lord's
Day." John says he was in the spirit on
the Lord's Day, that is, the first day of
the week, ('ailed the Lord's Day because
it was set aside from a common to a
sacred uio. The Jewish Sabbath com
mcmerated the work of creation. The
Christian's Sabbath commemorates the
work of rcpenipti.on, or the resurcction of
our blessed Lord. However, it is not so
much tho precise time, dating from crea?
tion, that is universally binding as that
one day out of bcven shall bo observed. It
seems absolutely sufficient that thereshall
be six days of lab"r and ono of rest,which
there will bo upon the Jewish and Chris?
tian schemes alike. And this leads me to
the consideration of the second head,
namely the position of the Sabbath. What
I place docs it hold iu the law or ten com?
mandments? In order'to determine this
question wo must have clear understand?
ing of the word "Law," which has a vari?
ety of meanings. The principle ones are:
(1) . An established order in the sequence
of events. Example. Law of the planets.
(2) . Uniformly acting forco which de?
termines the relation of events. Exam?
ple. Law of gravitation. (3). Judicial
law, or that which guides tho policy of a
nation as uudor the peculiar dominion of
God as supreme magistrate. (4). Cere?
monial law, intended only for the Jews
aud abrogated when Christ came. (">.)
Positive law, precepts not founded on any
reason known to those to whom they are
given, (fi). Moral law, which is the
declaration of God's will, binding on all
men in all ages.
Now, the law of the Sabbath is both
positive and moral. Positive in the
sense that God did not tell us why we
should keep it. He simply said "Remem?
ber." Moral, because it is binding on all
men ill all ages.
Positive and moral laws from their
nature (they are God's laws) have some
characteristics which are not common to
other laws These we note: (a) A mor?
al law is perfect: "The laws of the Lord
ate perfect." (b) Perpetual.Christ said:
"Think not that I am come to destroy the
Law and the Prophets, I am come not to
destroy but to fulfil," etc. (New Testa?
ment proof enough for the Sabbath.) (c)
Then in Ramans, we aro told that the law
is holy, just and good.
Now the ten commandments ate God's
moral laws. They are all of the same nat?
ure, that is, moral. The Sabbath has a
place iu the ten commandments, and so is
a moral law. What, therefore, can be
affirmed of moral laws can be alfirmed of
the Sabbath. Moral laws are perfect,
perpetual, holy, just and good. It follows
that the Sabbath is perfect, etc., and as
such is to be regarded. And *o it is
ushered in wild a peculiar emphasis, "Re?
member," etc.
What i* the duty required in this com
in indtneiii'.'
"The keeping I ? ly to God such set
Iimos asIlk ha* appointed in Hi* w?ir?1;

AS >LYSIS Of? THE CO?M \* |?.
1. It id the duty of parsata to set) to it
that their children observe it. "Thon
shall r?"t do any work, nor thy son nor
thy daughter."
2. It is the duty of masters to see that
their servant* keep it. "Thou nor thy
man ?ervant," etc.
Some people think that lb.*)* are keep?
ing the Sabbath when they cease work
themselves and attend God's worship.
Not so; letter let your cooks and house- |
girls off too.
Railroad officials observe it. (?)
when hundreds of trains are tteaming
through the country by their orders, and
thousands of men are employed on that
holy day, forced to work by those who say
that the Sabbath train is a necessity.
I Others think that the .Sabbath train is a
necessity too. Wc refute it by saying
that our forefathers did without trains
altogether. Rut some one says: "This is
a fast age." Is it? When the age guts
ahead of the unchangeable God and at?
tempts to set aside His immutable ,laws,
thes it is high time that the age should
call a halt.
3. It is the duty of heads of families to
seo to it that all within their house keep
it. "Thou nor thy stranger that is within
thy gates."
The most courteous treatment that we
eau extend to our guests is by seeing to
it that they, too, regard the Sabbath by a
holy rest and attendance upon Cod's or?
dinances.
A. The command may also refer to
magistrates, whose duty it is to see that
all within the city regard it, at least ex?
ternally.
This command may have thus been fully
expressed on account of the particular
place the Sabbsth holds in religious
worship. For with the observance of the
Sabbath religion stands or falls. "If the
foundation be destroyed what eau right?
eousness de?"
The Sabbath is the great foundation
stone of our Christian religion. We
might safely say, too, that upon its strict
observance depends the welfare of the
state, the weal of the Republic. To set it
aside would be about the most unreason?
able thing the stafe could do. Abolish
the Sabbath and you have anarchy, dis?
order and confusion. Sunny France tri
od it once. What was the result? A
reign of terror, such as no nation cvsr
saw before or since. It would seem that
the curse of God is resting upon Trance
until this day. N'ot two months since her
noblo President went to Lyons to attend
the opening exercises of the great exposi?
tion. It was opened on the Sabbath, and
it was on the Sabbath that he was stab?
bed to his death. Is this the providence
of God? Can't say, but it looks signifi?
cant. We hfiTc a cast in Jewish history;
at any rate where a man was stoned to
death for profaning God's day. When a
man ignores Cod's law and profanes His
Sabbath, he dares God, and "Woe te that
in a n that at ri vet h with his maker."
ru a roses or mi sabbath, or how sanctified.
"The Sabbath is to be sanctified by a
holy resting all that day, even from such
TTorhlly employment mid recreation as are
lawful on other days, and spending tho
whole time in the public and private ex?
ercises ef Cod's worship, except so much
as is to bo taken up in the works of neces?
sity and mercy."
1. To sanctify this day, then, we must
regard it as a day of holy rest. Holy rest
includes works of charity and mercy. It
does not mean not doing anything the
whole day but Christian work, at loast a
part of the day.
2. Worldly employment and recreation
must bo laid aside.-., sa. 58*13.
3. It is a day of worship. Tho design
of the Sabbath is twofold. First, that we
may secure rest of body, mind, etc. Sec?
ond, that Cod may be worshipped, man
instructed, and his soul brought under
the influence of things unseen and eternal.
The Sabbath is pre-eminently a day of
worship, meditation and prayer, and he
j who neglects these duties fails most of all
to regard it properly.
4. It is a day of joy and of praise, of
thanksgiving And of bright anticipation.
A time when we should look forward to
that endless Sabbath?that ''eternal rest
which remains for fie people ef God."
Finally, let us inquire, how is tin: Sab?
bath violated, or what is forbidden in the
fourth commandment.
'"The fourth commandment forbiddeth
the omission or the careless pesformauce
of the duties required, and the profaining
of I ho day by idleness or doing that which
is in itself sinful, or by unnecessary
thoughts, words or acts about eur worldly
employment or recreations."
I. It is violated, then, by omitting
anythiug that ought to be done.
ii. By doing nothing on that day. God,
I fancy, looks with more contempt on
those who idle the dar away than He
does upon the men who struggle for the
almighty dollar, or than he who is in hot
pursuit of pleasure.
3. Hy doing that which is in itself sin?
ful. Sins committed on the Sabbath are
aggravated. God holds us responsible for
the sin itself and for profaining His day.
4. by unnecessary thoughts, words or
acts about our worldly employments or
recreations. In Isa. fid: 13, we are taught
that we are "not to do our own way nor
to find our own pleasure, nor to speak our
own words." Rigid, perhaps, but it is
God's law.
It follows, then, that writing, reading
the newspapers and periodicals, feasting,
buying, selling and getting gain, working,
amusements of any sort, traveling on
trains, either for business or pleasure, is
a distinct dotation to God's law, and be
who thus makes a practice of these
thiugs, such an one will God in no wise
hold guiltless.
Let us slop, then, in our mad haste and
consider our ways. What will !??? the
outcome of transgressing God'.- ImW and
desecrating His holy day?
Sabbath breaking means national ruin,
individual disaster, eternal death.
