My Favorite Book on the Sabbath

This book well deserves to be reprinted, and Christian Focus is to be commended for so doing. It combines a Puritan view of the Sabbath with extremely practical help on how to make it work, even with small children! I commend it to all readers.

    Lane,

    That is a great book. I see it now has a new cover.

    Good reccomendation.

    Speaking of the Lord’s Day, I read yesterday’s postings, today (Monday) and wondered whether, Lane, you have ever thought about prohibiting postings on the Lord’s Day? Are they works of necessity, mercy, or am I missing something? ;)

    Additionally I was greatly saddened to read some of yesterday’s entries – the anger, accusations and frankly the venom in some was remarkable – given the focus a Christian is meant to have on the particular day they were made!
    One entry stood out – the one which ended with the words “Happy Lord’s Day”! How are men supposed to enjoy the Lord’s Day when they are a) blogging and posting and b) consumed by such anger which they seek to outwork through the pages of this blog ON THE LORD’S DAY ?

    I mean – talk about being consumed by the wrong thing on the Lord’s Day! I think you would be doing us all a great service, if men knew that greenbaggins was “Closed for business” every Sunday. Let me know your thoughts.

    Every blessing.

    MH, you make some good points. By the way, what is your full name? I do not allow anonymous (or effectively anonymous) posting on this blog. My views of the Sabbath are that posting on a blog is not prohibited (although I never advertise for WTS books on Sunday), since what usually happens is fellowship. In this case, it would be no different than talking to someone about theological issues on the Sabbath, which is, of course appropriate. However, as you point out, anger and hostility is not usually appropriate on the Lord’s Day (or any day, for that matter!). I often post my sermons on Sunday, which I think it definitely appropriate.

    By Puritan view of the Sabbath, do you mean “break the Sabbath and we put you in the stocks”?

    Thanks for your reply.

    I would have to think more carefully concerning the blogging = fellowship concept. With regard to most blogs I would have to consider how LCs 116 and 119 come into play in this respect – which might be good advice for the brother who acused you of a breach of LCs 144 and 145!

    Thanks for the blog -always stimulating. Sorry for the protocol breach!
    Matt
