The Working Classes Absolutely Require A Day

“The Scriptures mention the Sabbath much sooner than Adam fell into sin. Was it not appointed at that time that he should work six days and rest on the seventh? … Nature teaches that the working classes…who have spent the whole week in their work…absolutely require a day in which they can…rest and refresh themselves and…attend to the worship of God.”

~Martin Luther, Larger Catechism.

Per F.N. Lee:  “Compare too the citation in J.N. Andrews & L.R. Conradi: History of the Sabbath and the First Day of the Week, Washington, Review & Herald, 1912, pp. 609 & 627”
