Catholic Church enforces Sunday Law in Europe

Posted on July 23rd, by Present Truth in Archives. 81 comments

According to the Associated Press this past week, all Croatian shops will have to be closed on Sundays as of Jan 1, 2009. 

ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) _ The Croatian parliament has passed a law forcing shops to close on Sundays in a concession to the Roman Catholic church. The church has campaigned for years for Sundays to be devoted to family or Mass in Croatia, which is almost 90 percent Roman Catholic. But Croatians have begun spending weekends in shopping malls that have flourished across the country in the past few years and remain open seven days a week.
The law adopted Tuesday and goes into effect Jan. 1. It allows Sunday shopping over the summer and Christmas holidays.
The law also allows stores in gas, bus and train stations to open on Sundays year-round, along with those in hospitals. Bakeries, newsstands and flower shops are also exempt from the ban.
Unless we understand the importance of the moments that are swiftly passing into eternity and make ready to stand in the great day of God, we shall be unfaithful stewards. The watchman is to know the time of the night. Everything is now clothed with solemnity that all who believe the truth for this time should realise. They should act in reverence to the day of God. The judgements of God are about to fall upon the world and we need to be preparing for that great day.

    god bless you all. hebrews chapter 3 and 4 has the answer you all are lookin for about the sabath. please read it. first paul tells about how moses tryed to convince the isrealites to belive that god would take care of their every need and they would not believe, then god gave them the ten commandments and all they had to do was follow them and they would not. god only asked them to worship him on the sabbath what ever day that fell on cause i don.t have their calander. but they would not even do the walked in the wilderness till they died and thir kids got to go into isreal. then paul tells about as soon as christ was crucified on the cross he bore all our sinns and now we are to rest in him. if we truly have christ in our hearts and we read the word daily and study then we are not out workin or doin our pleasers like watchin tv or a movie, we are at rest with our savior christ jesus, the more you read the more rested you feel. try it. as far as the sunday law. they can not keep you from worshiping our lord because we are the church not some building. jesus wants us to be awake to watch for the mark of the beast. this is just my opinion that the pope will require all to convert to be catholic, i don’t know i am still studying and watchin. god bless everyone

    what is the purpose of sunday law in every individual?it was not stated in the bible to worhip GOD every sunday.only people does.

  3. JOY says:

    sunday law is not the way to overcome all wat we’ve experienced right now or by putiing 666 tag in every individual.we all know that 666 is satans name.

  4. The National Sunday Law is coming, this Mark of the Beast is already enforced in Germany and Crotia.
    Soon to the whole world, and Australia will be the very last country to get this sunday law.
    The seventh-day Sabbath from friday evening to saturday evening is the seal from the Holy Spirit to all True Christians who worship Jesus in spirit and in truth.

  5. Zion says:

    Sunday 1st day wrong it is mark of the beast. People please stop the sunday law. Read the Bible and pray always. Sabbath 7th was never changed by God.

    This false phophet made times and laws CHANGE for satan not God.

  6. jane says:

  7. collen says:

    Thre remains a Sabbath rest for the people of GOD.HEBREWS 4

  8. Just wanted to stop by and say thanks. Enjoy reading your stuff.

  9. Sunday is not the 7th day of the Gregorian week.
    Saturday is the 7th day of the Gregorian week.

    However, neither Saturday nor Sunday are mentioned in the Bible because the Pagan, Papal Gregorian calendar has only existed since 1582. The Julian, Roman preceded the Gregorian calendar and was changed from March-April beginning of the year to Jan. 1 along with a change in the number of the days of the week to facilitate its adoption by the Christians.

    The Biblical calendar is luni-solar and is composed of both systems: moon and sun.

    It is also based on the Barley Harvest Calendation combining a New Moon reckoning once the barley is ripe. This is proven biblically, astronomically, chronologically and historically. And all the people who keep Saturday as the 7th day, may be right as far as the Gregorian calendar goes, but are wrong according to the Creation Sabbath.

    Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
    9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
    10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
    11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
    ….if it says the sabbath day is the 7th day…and if you look at your calendar the week begins on sunday means is the first day and saturday is at the end and if you start at sunday and count to 7 then it would be satuday which in the bible exodus ch 20:8-11 tells us the 7th day is the sabbath how come Catholics and most churches worship on sunday…except the Seventh-day Adventist?

  11. brian roberts says:

    Well, I guess its finally started, or rather restarted. The catholic church rears its ugly head. It has started in a forign country, but sooner or later it will come to America. If we get a chance to vote on this matter, then we better vote against it.For all the good it will do. They will without doubt run it through against our will, just as they did the health care bill! Probably say we dont know whats good for us, and then push it through! Thanks Bilderberger Group, a–holes, C.F.R.,a–holes,catholic church, beast.

  12. Milana Lopez says:

    The Sabbath is the day of the Lord. The Chatolic Church was the one to change the day. They will get what they deserve at the end.

  13. madziva Praise says:

    God cannot let this whole population perish. The day from history can be Saturday but what matters most is How You Observe the day you have chosen. The meaning of the day. Why we are suposed to rest. Now on Resting we move on to how and whom we Pray. Can someone help me here as to how the counting of days started. Especially during the days of the the old Testament. Which day of the week was moses given the commandments.

  14. Jevon Chapman says:

    the bible says that christ was resurrected on the first day of the week! which we all know to be sunday! seeing that he sunday is the first day then we can conclude that saturday is the seventh!

  15. Tammy says:

    Amen, and amen. My LORD and Saviour is on His way. EVERY knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess HIm. As for me and my household, we shall serve the Lord of the Sabbath forever more. The Sabbath is the memorial of creation and I am created in His image. Come soon, Father and deliver us from this world of woe and lies.

  16. Tibza says:

    Sabbath, from the following broken down roots.

    Sha = Eternal
    Ab from Abba = Father
    Bath same as Beth = House of, or Sign of

    Together, Sign of the eternal Father…….

    Make up your own mind, Follow the sign (mark) of the beast OR sign(mark) of the Eternal Father…….

    He is the son of pedition who exalts himself against GOD,changes times and laws and speaks great things against GOD.

  18. Musoni William says:

    Right from the day of creation,God did not use force to be worshipped.
    It is all about ones faculty to decide whether to obey God or not.Will the Sunday law to be enforced in line with God’s character of love? Think about that and relate to any biblical event where God used force on his people.It matters on which day one worships.God dedicated sabbath as a special day to rejoice in handiwork.Remember passover in Egypt. Do you mean God didn’t know where Islalites were staying? it was just a symbol of obdience.

    My fellow Seventhday adventists, be on watch and guard your faith.

  19. P N Gantayat says:

    As the time of close of this earth arrives speedily, two groups will be separated and distinguished by what they believe.Consequently one will have dead conscience and the other not. Isa 5:20. The dead conscience will say evil to good and good evil, law to lawlessness. Unless their faiths are shown in action the world will not end. Sadly, by then there will be no way out said Jesus “Aporia” in Luke 21:25 from what they have earned to suffer with their deliberate choice of breaking the law of God- The heart of the Law – The Sabbath Keepi- as the sign of love, belonging to God. The law is given for our safeguard, happiness and safety Deut 6: 23-25. Keep His heart in your heart to inherit eternal home by keeping sabbath.

  20. Sunday law will come disguised as Universal Calendar Reform….find out more here>>

  21. Mechee Parker says:

    Accepting Sunday worship is accepting the Mark of Beast which states in Revelation 13:13-17. There are Seven days in a week in which God created when He created the world. God number the days and man name the days. You will never find a calendar that states there are 10 days within a week or 9 days with in a week. You will always see 7 days within a week. Since creation from the beginning of this world created by God(Gen 1&2)there are seven days in a week. Every calendar has 7 days within a week, once again base off God creating 7 days within a week during His creation. Exodus 20:8-11 clearly states the seventh day is the sabbath which is Saturday and in Hebrews 4:3-8 clearly states if Christ would have spoken of another day He would have told you. The Mark of the Beast is a human institution which stands in direct opposition to the Seal of God. The apostate chuch(Roman Catholic Church)has torn the true Sabbath out of God’s law, substituted Sunday, a festival borrowed from paganism, and now points to this bold action as the MARK of her power.

  22. Schelumiel says:

    In 1850 Ellen G. White Predicted by the Spirit of God that this will happen. It is the truth that God give this prediction to Ellen G. White.

    The Pentecostal always tell that Ellen G. White prediction is false.

    This a true proof for them.

    This is the real truth that the mark of the beast is the Catholic roman.


  24. dev says:

    wow… i am a catholic and i’m in a relationship with a girl who was raised adventist…. i’m really sorry to hear all this hatred for the catholic church… there’s plenty of scripture that says the sabbaths are no longer binding, just as the old law is not binding anymore… read collosians 2:16… sabbaths is used in old testament for both holy days and seventh day sabbaths… read galatians 4:9,10 and a whole bunch more… i love all of you adventists and hope for your salvation… God bless

  25. luis says:

    nowhere in hte bible youll find the day of worship being sunday, the sabbath is on saturday, it was establish by God in creation. It is a covenant we must observe it…the calendar might have have changed but the days remained the same, sunday still the first day of the week. Saturday still the seventh day..the sabbath still binding up to today, the 10 commandments are in the old testament so to the gentleman that says thats an old law. You have to keep the sabbath day holy…

  26. Leo says:

    well just as jesus promised he said this would happen from the beging but this is not something to be afraid of this is the sign that jesus is comeing very soon 🙂 we all what the bible says about this we will be persecuted and temted but be strong for the Lord is with us

  27. ABAINE SYLOCK says:

    Sunday law is soon coming !.Fellow adventists let come whatever may,no worship on SUN DAY.

  28. Halie Allen says:

    I just want everyone to know that Sunday is not the correct day of worship. Therefore, the Sunday law is a bunch of crap. The pope changed the day of worship to Sunday many years ago… notice the pope did this…the one who had 666 on his crown…the one who inforced perogatory ( purchasing salvation) The one who put the innocent to death due to Self power issues. Get Real people.. even the dictionary tells us the seventh day is saturday…even Sabbath means saturday is spanish. How obvious can it be??? Why would anyone want to follow man? I want to follow God. I will give you my house, my car, all of my money and possesions and my LIFE if you can find one verse in the bible that says we worship on Sunday. you can email me and send the verse if you dare to find one, but i assure you it is not there. Go ahead and look for yourself.

  29. Hibin Masalin says:

    All of us are sinners and we all need Jesus to sanctify us. Our salvation is soley based on faith to Jesus, faith that I am referrint o here is the saving faith through abiding with Jesus, see John 15:4, 5. As we continue to abide in Him we will love Him more and more. All sincere Christian strive to know the Will of God. When Jesus said “if you love me keep my commandment” He was referring to the commandments where love to the Creator is the first requirement and love to one another is second importance. That’s the summary of the Ten Commandments. Keeping the Sabbath is therefore an evidence of our love to our Lord. My dear friends, show our love to Jesus by keeping His commandments. We can’t possibly obey the commandment s by own efforts, it’s impossible. But when we are united with Jesus, His grace sanctify us and the Spirit change us to the likeness of Jesus thereby we shall live automatically live in conformity with the law because the law now are written in the heart. This is the gist of Paul message to the gentiles.

  30. Shelly says:

    OkJesus died so we may have a personal relationship w God and He did not like religion but a relationship w God our father. Laws on how and when we practice is ridiculous and no one has the right to take away our freedoms which this country was founded upon which was freedom of religion and separation of church and state!!!

  31. Redeemed In Tn says:

    I pray that all are waking up. The Sunday law will be the mark of the beast in the end…DO NOT ADHERE TO THIS …I am Christian and not Jewish and if all Christians will read the Sabbath is NOT on Sunday…as the comments above say it is from sundown Friday evening to sundown Saturday evening and God says in scripture to not change ANYTHING in his word/bible nothing…and to keep my commands and the fourth commandment is Keep the Sabbath day holy…not SUNDAY…Pray you have the strength in Jesus Christ to NEVER GIVE IN TO THIS SUNDAY LAW…It will be the final end time markings of the Satan!! I pray that you all read about this and look at scripture.
