World News Group: "No Business can be Forced to Operate on Sunday

World News Group is a biweekly news magazine published by evangelical Protestants that was created to serve the Christian community. [1] On February 14, 2024, World News Group published a defense of Chick-fil-A, calling for the right of businesses to close on Sunday. In fact, the Evangelical magazine made the argument that no business should be open on Sunday because this would go against "text, tradition, and nature." The article even went so far as to lament the fact that "American legislatures" are no longer protecting Sunday as the day of rest, which it called a "historical and social good" for our nation.

World News Group reported the following:

• "In December, New York lawmakers introduced a bill that would require all restaurants operating at rest stops on the Thruway, the state highway system, to be open seven days a week. Chick-fil-A, famous for its Christian ownership and closure on Sunday, has restaurants at nine, and soon to be 10, of the 27 rest stop locations in the state." [2]

• "Were the new law to be legally challenged, there is some cause for optimism. Last term, in Geoff v. DeJoy (2023), the Supreme Court ruled in favor of an evangelical postal worker who refused to work on Sundays, making it clear that employers must accommodate religious beliefs extending to practice. But this only so long as said practice does not unduly burden the employer. The New York Chick-fil-A scenario presents a different and admittedly premature question." [2]

• "No business can be forced to operate on Sunday because no business should operate on Sunday. Why? Because text, tradition, and the very light of nature-that which no just law can contradict-tell us so. A one-in-seven rest is good for the soul as it is good for the body. If that historical, social good is not going to be any longer protected by American legislatures; surely American companies should not be forced to violate it." [2]

Here we see Protestants exalting Sunday and advocating for this day to be protected. They are putting out a call to action for fellow Christians-Protestant and Roman Catholic alike-to oppose making people work on Sundays. Inspiration tells us that efforts will be made by Protestants and Catholics to reinstate Sunday as the day of rest once more:

"The Word of God teaches that these scenes are to be repeated as papists and Protestants shall unite for the exaltation of the Sunday" (Great Controversy, p. 578).

Bible prophecy describes a worldwide movement that is at work right now, trying to get people to worship and obey the beast of Revelation, whose deadly wound is being healed. By honoring Sunday, the papal mark of apostasy, men are giving their allegiance to Rome.

God will not remain silent, despite the spiritual decay that is engulfing the world. As the world wonders after the beast, we are told in Revelation chapter 14:9-11 that the Third Angel's Message will be announcing a message to every nation, kindred, tongue, and people, warning them against the worship of the beast and its image and against receiving his mark in the forehead or in the hand.

These two movements are clearly active at the same time in today's society. These two movements can be seen right now. There are two messages that are at variance with one another and that are sounding from one end of the earth to the other. On one side, the entire religious and political world is wondering after the beast, the image, and the mark. On the other side are the small remnant people, faithfully giving a direct warning against the worship of the beast, his image, and his mark.

There is no peace or compromise between these two parties. The beast and its image will stand in opposition to the Remnant people. There is only one way that the Remnant people can be at peace and coexist with the beast of Bible prophecy. Rome can only be appeased if the Remnant compromises or hides their faith:

"Here is the line of distinction between the worshipers of God and those who worship the beast and receive his mark. The great conflict is between the commandments of God and the requirements of the beast. It is because the saints are keeping all ten of the commandments that the dragon makes war upon them. If they will lower the standard and yield the peculiarities of their faith, the dragon will be at peace; but they excite his ire because they have dared to raise the standard and unfurl their banner in opposition to the Protestant world, who are worshiping the institution of papacy" (Testimonies, Vol. 1, p. 223).

Inspiration tells us that the reason why the dragon is enraged with the commandment-keeping people is because they dare to raise a banner in opposition to the apostate Protestant world (the image of the beast) that is worshipping the institution of the papacy on Sunday. This is what every Seventh-day Adventist Church leader used to believe. Sadly, many of our people have laid down the banner of Christ and have joined the ranks of opposition through Rome's ecumenical movements.

When church leaders attend these interfaith ceremonies designed to unite the churches, exalt Sunday worship, promote spiritualism, reject biblical truth, and unite us under one head, Rome, we must recognize that our participation means we are sanctioning their efforts and thus demonstrating our support. This is a scandal for our people as well as all other religions, and it has serious consequences. We were warned that if we refuse to give the "special" truths for this time, we do so at the peril of our souls:

"The Lord gives a special truth for the people in an emergency. Who dare refuse to publish it? He commands His servants to present the last invitation of mercy to the world. They cannot remain silent, except at the peril of their souls. Christ's ambassadors have nothing to do with consequences. They must perform their duty and leave results with God" (Great Controversy, p. 609).
