The Transference of the Sabbath Dr. Edward T.

The Position of Protestantism No Scriptural Evidence for the Change

 

V0009b Baptist E T Hiscox Nov 16 1893
 
In dealing with the position of the Baptist Church on the law of God, we have quoted from “The Baptist Manual.” The author of that Manual was Dr. Edward T. Hiscox.  At a New York Ministers’ Conference, held Nov. 13, 1893, Dr. Hiscox read a paper on the transference of the Sabbath from the seventh to the first day.  Mention of this paper was made in the Nov. 16, 1893, Issue of the New York Examiner, a Baptist paper, which described the intense interest manifested by the ministers present, and the discussion which followed its presentation.  From a copy of this address furnished by Dr. Hiscox himself, we call attention to these striking and earnest statements:

 

V0009c
“There was and is a commandment to keep holy the Sabbath day, But that Sabbath day was not Sunday.  It will be said, however, and with some show of triumph, that the Sabbath was transferred from the seventh to the first day of the week, with all its duties, privileges, and sanctions.  Earnestly desiring information on this subject, which I have studied for many years, I ask, where can the record of such a transaction be found?  Not in the New Testament, absolutely not.  There is no Scriptural evidence of the change of the Sabbath institution from the seventh to the first day of the week.


V0009d The Transference of the Sabbath E F Hiscox Aug 20 1893 

 “I wish to say that this Sabbath question, in this aspect of it, is the gravest and most perplexing question connected with Christian institutions which at present claims attention from Christian people; and the only reason that it is not a more disturbing element in Christian thought and in religious discussions, is because the Christian world has settled down content on the conviction that somehow a transference has taken place at the beginning of the Christian history. . . .


 V0009e The Transference of the Sabbath Aug 20 1893

“To me it seems unaccountable that Jesus, during three years’ intercourse with His disciples, often conversing with them upon the Sabbath question, discussing it in some of  its various aspects, freeing it from its false glosses, never alluded to any transference of the day; also, that during forty days of His resurrection life, no such thing was intimated.  Nor, so far as we know, did the spirit, which was given to bring to their remembrance all things whatsoever that He had said unto them, deal with this question.  Nor yet did the inspired apostles, in preaching the gospel, founding churches, counseling and instructing those founded, discuss or approach this subject.


V0009f The Transference of the Sabbath E F Hiscox Nov 16 1893

V00014a Corpus Juris Canonici Gregorii XIII Pontif 1582.
This is the standard text of canon law for the whole Roman Catholic Church.  Pope Gregory XIII wrote July 1, 1580, in his preface to this corrected edition:

 

 

 

 

 

V00014b“We have demanded care in rejecting, correcting, and expurgating. . . .  The Decree itself, without the glossæ,  exists now entirely freed from faults and corrected, . . . as much the one without the glossæ as the entire one with the glossæ . . . all recognized and approved . . . this body of canonical law firmly grounded and incorrupted according to this model printed at Rome by Catholic typographers. . . .  We wishing to proceed opportunely, so that this canonical law thus expurgated, may come restored to all the faithful  . . . Kept perpetually integrid and incorruptible, motu proprio, and from our certain knowledge, and from the plenitude of the apostolic power to all and singly in the dominion of our sacred Roman Church.”  -- Preface to Corpus Juris Canonici, Gregorii Xiii, Pontif.

Papal Claims to the Divinity of the Pope

 The following statement taken from a writer in the Osservatore Romano, the official organ of the Vatican, tells unmistakably that the one who was to “speak great words against the most High” is none other than the pope of Rome:  “The man of white race who dominates with his spiritual power all the material forces, the man in whom and by whom the supernatural life of the world is eternalized—behold him!  The Pope, Vicar of God, who stands in the center of centuries, a light lighting all darkness, the symbol of liberty and civilization, the inexhaustible source of life.  “The Pope alone is immovable Truth, the Eternal Light which blesses the destiny of our civilization.  He alone is love, binding the peoples in brotherhood and in lasting and fruitful peace.  “All the world looking at Rome, palpitates with joy, with love, with life.  Here sit genius, sanctity, knowledge, virtue, power.  And the people know that these blessings adorn the soul of the Pope; because in him is centered the supernatural power of Christ.  “When the Pope sends his words to the earth’s ends, the earth keeps silence.  The peaks of earthly intelligence and power redden with light and listen pensively to the word which makes vibrate with its echo the abysses of time, eternity, and all things visible, because the word is from Christ.”  Ernest Gorden in Sunday School Times, March, 12, 1932.

V00045 “Thus by degrees the Corpus Juris Canonici took shape.  This became the official code of canon law for Western Europe during the Middle Ages, and was composed of six books, namely, the Decretum of Gratian (about 1150), the Decretals of Gregory IX (1234), the Sextus of Boniface VIII (1298), the Clementines of Clement V (1313), the Extravagantes of John XXII (about 1316), and the Extravagantes Communes, which contained laws made by succeeding popes.” –“The Papacy,” Rev.

V00066 Later, when Roman Catholic Authorities discovered that Protestants were making use of the foregoing statements to identify the Papacy with the antichristian power of Revelation 13:18, they attempted to repudiate the contents of their former article.  But that article was not written by some contributor to their paper; it appeared in the “Bureau of Information,” for which the editorial staff was responsible.  And on page two of that paper appeared sanctions for the editor from Pope Pius X, dated May 17, 1914; from the Apostolic Delegate, John Bonzano, dated April 27, 1913; and from J. H. Alerding, Bishop of Fort Wayne, Ind., dated March 29, 1912.  If statements made under such high authorities are not trustworthy, we would respectfully ask if their present denials are any more so?

Lecture I
V00086a The Temporal Power of the Vicar of Jesus Christ
It was a dignified obedience to bow to the Vicar of the Son of God, and to remit the arbitration of their griefs to one whom all wills consented to obey.”—The Temporal Power of the Vicar of Jesus Christ,”by Henry Edward Manning, London, 1862, pp. 231-32.  Italics ours.

V00086b The Temporal Power of the Vicar of Jesus Christ 

            Henry Edward Cardinal Manning of England, an extensive Roman Catholic writer, of high esteem in his church, applies the same title to the pope, only using it in its English translation.  He says of the popes:

            “The temporal power in the hands of St. Gregory I was a fatherly and patriarchal rule over nations not as yet reduced to civil order.  In the hands of St. Leo III it became a power of creating empires.  In the hands of S. Gregory VII it was a scourge to chasten them.  In the hands of Alexander III it was a dynasty, ruling supremely, in the name of God, over the powers of the world. . . . . So that I may say there never was a time when the temporal power of the Vicar of the Son of God, though assailed as we see it, was more firmly rooted throughout the whole unity of the Catholic Church.

            “It was a dignified obedience to bow to the Vicar of the Son of God, and to remit the arbitration of their griefs to one whom all wills consented to obey.”—“The Temporal Power of the Vicar of Jesus Christ,” pp. 231, 232, second edition. London:

SUBJECT:  CATHOLIC PRIESTHOOD: CLAIMS—De Liguori, St. Alphonsus (1696-1787):  Dignity and Duties of the Priest, or, Selva.  The book is in the SDA Theological Seminary Library.  According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, art.  “Alphonsus  Liguori,” de Liguori was a theologian and missionary of the Roman Catholic Church, founder of the Redemptorist Order.  De Liguori was an Italian.  His Ascetical Works, of which the Selva is Vol. XII, have long been widely used by Roman Catholic priests in their sermons and proselyting activities.  The book makes very bold claims for the power of the Catholic priesthood.  It can be quoted without hesitation as an authority.  The edition from which these Photostats are taken is that of 1927.

             a. “. . . the priestly dignity is superior even to all celestial dignities.”                   (p. 25).  “. . . the Incarnate Word has obliged himself to obey and Come into their hands under the sacramental species.”  (p. 26). Title,    Imprimatur, and pages 24-27, 4 exposures.

V00089b Dignity and Duties of the Priest. p 28
In the book, “Dignity and Duties of the Priest,” page 28, the author says, “Were the Redeemer to descend into a church, and sit in a confessional to administer the sacrament of penance, and a priest to sit in another confessional, Jesus would say over each penitent, ‘Ego te absolve,’ the priest would likewise say over each of his penitents, ‘Ego te absolve,’ and the penitents of each would be equally absolved.”

V00089c Dignity and Duties of the Priest p 36
Innocent III has written, ‘Indeed it is not too much to say that in view of the sublimity of their offices the priests are so many gods!”, St. Alphonsus de Ligueri, Dignity and Duties of the Priest or Selfa, p. 36

“Faith of Millions”, “The Credentials of the Catholic Religion”, by the Reverend John A O’Brien, Ph.D., LL.D, with a preface by his Eminence Cardinal O’Connell, Archbishop of Boston, and an introduction by His Eminence Dennis Cardinal Dougherty, Archbishop of Philadelphia, and bearing the Imprimatur of Jon Francis Noll, D.D., Bishop of For Wayne, pp. 242.  “The second great power of the priestly office is that of  PARDONING.  When the PRIEST raises aloft his right hand and pronounces the words of pardon over the sinner in the tribunal of confession,   THE SHACKLES OF SIN ARE TORN FROM THE SOUL OF THE PENITENT.  THE PRIEST PARDONS AS EFFECTIVELY AS IF THE WORDS FELL FROM THE LIPS OF CHRIST…The hand of the priest reaches up beyond the Horizon of the sky, and with Golden Keys unlocks the treasury of God’s Mercy and forgiveness and applies them to the souls of men.”

“Faith of Millions”, “The Credentials of the Catholic Religion”, by the Reverend John A. O’Brien, Ph. D., LL. D., pp. 243-244  “THE ROMAN CATHOLIC PRIEST – ANOTHER CHRIST”  “The third great power of the priestly office is the climax of all.  It is the power of consecrating. . . . For in this role the Priest speaks with the VOICE and the AUTHORITY OF GOD HIMSELF.  When the priest pronounces the tremendous words of consecration, he reaches up into the heavens, BRINGS CHRIST DOWN FROM HIS THRONE, AND PLACES HIM UPON OUR ALTAR TO BE OFFERED UP AGAIN AS THE VICTIM FOR THE SINS OF MAN. . . not once but a thousand times!  The priest speaks and lo!  Christ, the Eternal and Omnipotent God, bows His head in humble obedience to the priest’s command. . . For the priest is and should be another Christ.”

Pope Vicar of Christ & can forgive Sins

V00092b The Pope can forgive sins
8.  Syracuse Post-Standard, March 14, 1912, Rev. Jeremiah Prenderqast (A R. C. Priest).  The Pose is the VICAR OF ChRIST . . . . The claims of the Pope are the same as the claims of Christ . . . .   Christ can forgive all sin.  SO CAN THE POPE
V00092 28.  Syracuse Post-Standard, March 14, 1912, Rev. Jeremiah Prenderqast (A R. C. Priest) “The Pose is the VICAR OF ChRIST . . . . The claims of the Pope are the same as the claims of Christ . . . .   Christ can forgive all sin.  SO CAN THE POPE.”
V00092c The Syracuse Post Stoddard of March 14, 1912 J Prendergast
And this essential claim of the Papacy, which magnifies the pope even to the Prince of the host, Crist, was expressed in the following words by Rev. Jeremiah Prendergast, S. J., In a sermon in Syracuse, New York State, March 13, 1912, as reported in the Syracuse Post-Standard of March 14, 1912:--"The Pope is the vicar of Christ, or the visible head of the church on earth. The claims of the pope are the same as the claims of Christ.... Christ can forgive all sin.  So can the Pope.  The Pope is the only man who claims the vicarage of Christ.  His claim is not seriously opposed, and this establishes his authority.  The powers given the Pope by Christ were given him not as a mere man, but as the representative of Christ.  The Pope is more than the representative of Christ, for he is the fruit of His divinity and of the divine institution of the church."

a. A Doctrinal Catechism, 3d Am. Ed., 1846.  The book is in the SDA Theological Seminary Library.  Proof that Protestants are not guided by Scripture, in their keeping of Sunday; proof that the Catholic Church “has power to institute festivals of precept” in that “she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday . . .  for the observance of Saturday, . . .  a change for which there is no Scriptural authority;” “in profaning Saturday, Protestants violate one of God’s commandments.”  Title, Approbation and pp. 100-101, 174-175, 352-353, and 354-355, 6 exposures.  Also No. 7a complete in combined reduced 81/2”x11” notebook size, 2 exposures.  Order Nos. 7a (1) N and 7a (2) N.

c.. Controversial Catechism, or Protestantism Refuted, and Catholicism Established.  3d (Eng.) ed., 1854.  The book is in the SDA Theological Seminary Library.  Protestants keep Sunday from midnight to midnight, instead of the scriptural “even unto even;” they profane Saturday, in which they follow tradition and “violate one of God’s commandments;” the observance of Sunday “certainly is not” scriptural; hence all acknowledge that Scripture “cannot be the only rule of faith.”  Title, page 53 and page 54, 3 exposures.

Also No. 7bc complete in combined reduced 81/2”x11” notebook size, 1 exposure.  Order No. 7bcN.

V000102b A Doctrinal Catechism S Keenan

 The Roman Catholic Church Declares that Sunday keeping is not based upon the Bible but upon tradition.  Q.  When Protestants do profane work upon Saturday or the Seventh day of the week, do they follow the Scripture as their only rule of faith – do they find this permission clearly laid down in the sacred volume?  A.  On the contrary, they have only the authority of Tradition for this practice.  In profaning Saturday, they violate one of God’s commandments, which He has never clearly abrogated – “Remember thou keep holy the Sabbath day.”

No. 15.  SUBJECT:  “VICARIUS FILII DEI:” POWER OF THE POPES – Ferraris, F. Lucius (18th century):  Prompta Bibliotheca (Ready Dictionary), Venice, 1772.  The book is in the SDA Theological Seminary Library.  This Roman Catholic dictionary was highly thought of and much used by Catholics.  The Catholic Encyclopedia says in art.  “Ferraris, Lucius,” it is “A veritable encyclopedia of religious knowledge,” it “will ever remain a precious mine of information, although it is sometimes possible to reproach the author with laxism.”  In the second article on Papa (the Pope), in Vol. VI, we have several important statements based on older Catholic writings, on the power and standing of the popes, of which the following are translations:

 a. “Hence the pope is crowned with the triple crown, as King of Heaven, and of Earth, and of the Infernal Regions.”  (p. 26).  “Moreover the excellency, and power, of the Roman Pontiff, not only compasses the Celestial, Terrestrial, and Infernal Regions, But is even above the Angels, of whom he himself is the greater.”  “He is of so great Dignity, and power, that he makes one and the same Tribunal with Christ.”  “The  Pope is as it were God on Earth, the unique Chief of those who are faithful in Christ, greatest King of all Kings, holding the plentitude of power, to whom are entrusted by the Omnipotent God the guidance at the same time of Earthly and of Heavenly Rule.” Just as the Blessed Peter has been constituted on earth the Vicar of the Son of God, So also the pontiffs his Successors (have) on earth the power of the supremacy more fully than the clemency of our earthly imperial serenity is seen to have.”  (p. 27) Note: It will be seen concerning this last statement, by comparing it with the translation of No. 13, that Ferraris quotation claims for the pope more power over earthly matters Than even the original False Donation of Constantine, from which both are taken, allows  Title, and pp. 26-27, 2 exposures.  Also No. 15a complete in combined reduced 81/2”x11” notebook size, 1 exposure.  Order No. 15aN.

b. “General opinion now teaches this, that the Pope has the power, spiritual indeed and  temporal, of both swords, which Jurisdiction and power Christ himself committed to Peter, and to his Successors.”  “Wherefore he grants the Provinces, which once were

Christian, occupied by Infidels, to anyone from among Christian Princes, to corrected.” (p. 28).  “Hence it is no wonder, if there is attributed to the Roman Pontiff, as the Vicar of him (Christ), whose is the earth, and it fullness, of the lands Of the world, and all who dwell in it, the fullest authority and power, not only by the Spiritual, but also by the unsheathed material sword, for the transferring of  government, the breaking of scepters, the removing of crowns.’  The Pope is of so Great authority and power, that he can also modify, explain, and interpret Divine Laws.”  (p. 29).  Title, and pp. 28-29, 2 exposures.  Also No. 15b complete in

instead of Saturday, but for rejecting tradition, which is the only safe

No. 72.  SUBJECT:  TRADITION AND THE SABBATH AT THE COUNCIL OF  TRENT – Holtzmann, Heinrich Julius (German nineteenth century authority on  tradition in the Church), Kanon und Tradition (1859). He states that at the Council of Trent the change from Sabbath to Sunday was argued as evidence of  the authority of the church’s tradition.  A translation of the passage, from the German, reads:  “At last at the final opening [of the council] on January 18, 1562, they rid themselves of all hesitation; the Archbishop of Reggio made an address in which he declared openly that tradition was elevated above the Scripture. On this account the authority of the Church could not at all [he said] be tied to the authority of Scripture, because the former had, not according to the ordinance of Christ, but on its own authority, change circumcision into baptism, and the Sabbath into Sunday.  With this the last illusion was dispelled and clarified, that tradition represented not antiquity, but continuing inspiration.” Title page and pages 262 and 263, 2 exposures.  Also No. 72 complete in combined reduced 81/2”x11” notebook size, 1 exposure.  Order No. 72N.

Forsaking therefore the Judaic observance of the Sabbath, let us see what sort of  Observance of the Sabbath is expected of the Christian?  On the day of the Sabbath nothing of worldly acts ought to be performed.  If therefore you cease from all worldly works, and do nothing mundane, but are free for spiritual works,you come to the church, offer the ear for divine readings and discussions, and thoughts of heavenly things, give attention to the future life, keep before your eyes the coming judgment, do not regard present and visible things, but the invisible and the future:  this is the observance of the Christian Sabbath.” Migne, Patrologia Graeca, Vol. XII, title page and cols. 749-750 (Latin), 2       exposures.  Also No. 117 complete in combined, reduced 81/2”x11”  1 exposure.

No.  13.  SUBJECT:  “VICARIUS FILII DEI” – Corpus Juris Canonici

    (Body of Canon Law), in Latin, published in Leipsic, Germany, in 1879. The book is in the SDA Theological Seminary Library.  This reproduces The Decretals included in Canon Lay by Gratian, who first published a complete edition of Catholic Canon Law about 1150.  Of this work the Catholic Encyclopedia, art.  “Corpus Juris Canonici” says: “The ‘Corpus Juris Canonici’ was now, indeed, complete, but it contained collections of widely different juridical value.  Considered

    as collections, the ‘Decree’ of Gratian, the ‘Extravagantes Joannis XXII’, and the ‘Extravagantes Communes’ have not, and never had, a legal value, but the documents Which they contain may possess and, as a matter of fact, often do possess, very great authority.  Moreover, custom has even given to several apocryphal canons of the ‘Decree’ of Gratian the force of Law.  The other collections are official, and consist

Of legislative decisions still binding, unless abrogated by subsequent legislation.” Item No. 12 reproduces from the Decree of Gratian, Pars Prima (First Part), Distinction 96, the 14th chapter, headed, “The emperors ought to be under and not over the pontiffs.”  This chapter 14 is a quotation from the false “Donation of  Constantine,” supposedly given to pope Sylvester in A. D. 337, but actually not written The ninth century.  This document is the originator of the expression “Vicarius

Filii Deli.” Of the Donation of Constantine the Catholic Encyclopedia says in art “Donation of Constantine,” “This document is without doubt a forgery,  fabricated somewhere between the years 750 and 850.  As early as the fifteenth Century its falsity was known and demonstrated.  Cardinal Nicholas of Cusa . . . Spoke of it as a dictum apocryphum.  Some years later Lorenzo Valla  . . . proved the forgery with certainty.”  (See items No.  14 and No.  36).  A translation of the material in point is as follows:  “Together with all our satraps and the whole senate and my nobles, and also all the people subject to the glory of the Roman government, we declare it proper that, just as the blessed Peter is seen to be constituted on earth the Vicar of the Son of God, so also the Pontiffs, who rule in the place of the prince of the apostles himself, should obtain from us and from our government a power of  supremacy greater than the earthly clemency of our imperial serenity is seen to have conceded to it,  choosing the same prince of the apostles and his vicars to be for us

strong patrons with God.  And just as we decree our earthly imperial power, so we decree that his holy Roman Church, be reverently honored, and more fully than our government and earthly throne, the most holy seat of the blessed Peter be gloriously exalted, attributing to it power and the dignity and vigor of glory, and imperial honor.” Title, cols.  341-342, and cols.  343-344, 3 exposures.
