    What makes one's keeping of the Sabbath Day, 'holy'? Is it possible the Jews could keep the Sabbath Day holy just like Christians would or might? What - if there is any difference - would be the reason for it?

    Kid of Calvin! Ja sure, Protestant in every fibre. Free Grace; Christian duty;have you faith, keep it to yourself and do your job! That's 'Reformed' in my mind. Only the Scriptures - that's 'Reformed' - which very few 'Reformed' take seriously. Let's go Catholic, and renounce the Scriptures, then we won't be bothered in the least - then we'll all be happy, like Hillclimber, with no concern whatsoever, jeepers!
    That's what gives me, the creepers! That some call themselves Reformed but don't give a dime for the Scriptures.

    It can be lekker; or it can be hard - and boring to death; no harder labour than a Sabbath Day by reason of the Law. And even harder for a Christian were it by reason of the Law he kept the Sabbath Day. That is not keeping the Sabbath Day holy; that is transgression of the Fourth Commandment and the trampling underfoot of the Sabbath Day. God forbid! Not by reason of the Jews' reason d'etre for a Christian - for a 'Reformed'! So Calvin humorlously rejected and despised the superstion of the Sunday-keeping Church; he called it thrice as bad as the Jew's hypocricy. The pope revers it. Have your choice - you only have a choice between the pope's and the Lord's Day. Don't think you are too good to face and answer this choice Hillclimber; you'll never get over it; you must go through it.
