The question, therefore, as to the change of" the day in no way affects the perpetual obligation of the "Sabbath as an institution. Change of the day or no change, the" Sabbath remains as a sacred institution the same. The observance of the Sabbath is sometimes advocated on the ground that man needs a day of rest, and will grow prematurely old if he labors seven days in each week, which is doubtless true; and it has also been advocated on the ground that God will bless in basket and store those who hallow his Sabbath, which may be true in many cases; but the.
