It may sound strange but the Roman Catholic Church recently gave a very good defense for the Sabbath:
“In his wisdom, God set aside the Sabbath so that the land and its inhabitants could rest and be renewed. These days, however, our way of life is pushing the planet beyond its limits. Our constant demand for growth and an endless cycle of production and consumption are exhausting the natural world. Forests are leached, topsoil erodes, fields fail, deserts advance, seas acidify and storms intensify. Creation is groaning!” (https://www.vatican.va/content/francesco/en/messages/pont-messages/2020/documents/papa-francesco_20200901_messaggio-giornata-cura-creato.html)
They are right on this one: the Sabbath was part of God’s design when He created the world. That’s why the seventh day was sanctified in Eden the very first week of this world’s history, before sin and death entered the world.
God told Adam and Eve concerning the tree of knowledge of good and evil: “The day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” (Gen 2:17), but the Devil, the archdeceiver, told Eve: “Ye shall not surely die.” (Gen 3:4).
God said “Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, …” (Ex 20:8-11).
But the Roman Catholic Church declared that “Christians must not judaize by resting on the Sabbath, but must work on that day, rather honouring the Lord’s Day; and, if they can, resting then as Christians. But if any shall be found to be judaizers, let them be anathema from Christ.” (Council of Laodicea - Canon 29).
But they are now saying “In his wisdom, God set aside the Sabbath so that the land and its inhabitants could rest and be renewed…”: he is trying to trick the world into believing that Sunday is the true Sabbath and that keeping it is the only solution to solve the environmental, economic, social and health crisis the word is now facing. Do you see how cunning they are? How they are able to twist their tongue?
Anyways, as the prophet Daniel said: “None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.” (Daniel 12:10).
