    Council of Toulouse 1229. Canons against Sabbath-keepers: Canon 3. "The Lords of the different districts shall have the villas, houses and woods diligently searched, and the hiding places of the heretics destroyed."

    Louis IX in 1229 decreed to clear southern France from heretics, as the Sabbath-keepers were called.

    It was Jesus' custom, His ethos, to observe the Sabbath day (Luke 4:16). The same can be said of Paul (Acts 17:2).

    The word "Heretics" would have been applied to Jesus' very own apostles and to Jesus Himself.

    IMO, A previous generation of "Christians" has taken us down some very "crooked paths".

    From 1290 to 1656, in England, it was a crime upon pain of
    death to be a Jew on the English Island.
    To bad that the Bishop of Uusher wanted to date the creation
    of Adam and came up with 4004BC. Even the average
    Jew knows it was about 320 years after that.

    Ignatious, a desciple of John, about 100 AD, says, "Those who were concerned with old things have come to newness of confidence, not longer keeping Sabbaths but living according to the Lord's day, on which our life as risen again through Him depends."
    I really like this quote because it shows that the skunk in the woodpile is not the Romanist's as the Sabbath Keepers want us to think. This quote came from a little book written by R.A. Torrey, called, Ought Christians to Keep the Sabbath? pg. 41
    Also he writes about the fact that the Religionists of the day of Christ wanted to kill him for not keeping the Sabbaths. John 5:18
    If anyone would like anymore info from this book there are lots of quotes and rebuttal. Just say so.

    Thanks -----Bart

    Bartimaeus --

    How many students did St. John have? I knew of Polycarp, but not of Ignatious. From what I read, Polycarp still kept the Passover on Nisan 14. Did he keep the Sabbath also? Any books to read about these "students of John" ?
