  • The very first thing recorded in the Bible is work done on Sunday, the first day of the week. Genesis 1:1-5 This was done by the Creator Himself. God started creating the earth on Sunday, can it be wicked for us to work on Sunday?
  • Sunday through Thursday are so insignificant that the Bible only names them by: first day, Second day, Third day, Fourth day, and Fifth day.
  • The Bible only gives names to the important days of the week. Friday the Preparation day and Saturday the Sabbath.
  • The Bible doesn't record the wicked desecrating the 1st day (Sunday) of the week.
  • God commands men to work upon the first day of the week. Exodus 20:8-11
  • None of the patriarchs kept 1st day (Sunday).
  • None of the holy prophets ever kept 1st day (Sunday).
  • By the express command of God, His holy people used the first day (Sunday) of the week as a common working day for 4,000 years, at least.
  • God Himself calls the first day (Sunday) a "working" day. Ezekiel 46:1
  • God did not rest upon 1st day (Sunday).
  • Christ did not rest upon 1st day (Sunday).
  • Jesus was a carpenter (Mark 6:3), and worked at His trade until He was thirty years old. He kept the Sabbath (Saturday) and worked six days in the week, as all admit. Hence, He did many a hard day's work on Sunday.
  • The apostles worked upon 1st day (Sunday) during the same time.
  • The apostles never rested upon 1st day (Sunday).
  • Christ never blessed 1st day (Sunday).
  • Sunday has never been blessed by any divine authority.
  • Sunday has never been sanctified.
  • No law was ever given to enforce the keeping of Sunday, hence it is no transgression to work on Sunday. "Where no law is, there is no transgression." Romans 4:15 See also 1 John 3:4.
  • The New Testament nowhere forbids work to be done on 1st day (Sunday).
  • No penalty is provided for Sunday violation.
  • No blessing is promised for Sunday observance.
  • No regulation is given as to how Sunday ought to be observed. Would this be so if the Lord wished us to keep Sunday?
  • Sunday is never called the Christian Sabbath.
  • Sunday is never called the Sabbath day at all.
  • Sunday is never called the Lord's day.
  • Sunday is never called even a rest day.
  • No sacred title whatever is applied to Sunday. Then why should we call it holy?
  • The word Sunday never occurs in the Bible at all. Sunday is simply called "first day of the week."
  • Jesus never mentioned 1st day (Sunday) in any way, never took its name upon His lips, so far as the record shows.
  • Neither God, Christ, nor inspired men ever said one word in favor of Sunday as a holy day.
  • The first day (Sunday) of the week is mentioned only eight times in all the New Testament. Matthew 28:1; Mark 16:2,9; Luke 24:1; John 20:1,19; Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 16:2. Six of these texts refer to the same first day of the week.
  • There was no requirement to break bread on the 1st day (Sunday) in the Bible Sunday threw Thursday.
  • Paul directed the saints to look over their secular affairs on the 1st day (Sunday). 1 Corinthians 16:2
  • In all the New Testament we have a record of only one religious meeting held upon that day, and even this was a night meeting. Acts 20:5-12. That was done in the night-after Sabbath sundown. Acts 20:7-11
  • There is not an implication that they ever held a meeting upon it before or after that.
  • It was not their custom to meet on the 1st day (Sunday).
  • Jesus celebrated passover on Thursday evening (Luke 22), and the disciples sometimes did it every day. Acts 2:42-46
  • The Bible nowhere says that the 1st day (Sunday) of the week commemorates the resurrection of Christ. This is a tradition of men, which contradicts the law of God. Matthew 15:1-9 Baptism commemorates the burial and resurrection of Jesus. Romans 6:3-5
  • Finally, the New Testament is totally silent with regard to any change of the Sabbath day (7th day, Saturday) or any sacredness for the first day.
