Sunday Worship as the mark of the beast.Sunday Worship as the mark of the beast. Ellen White specifically said that it is NOT NOWnot now the mark of the beast. SometimeSome time in the future, laws will become income into place requiring Sunday worship. (withWith the strength of Evangelical Christianity in the US today, I can see it coming sooner rather than later).) When Sunday worship is required, and Sabbath keepers-keepers are persecuted for keeping the Sabbath holy, then the mark of the beast will be enforced. The mark of the beast is really efforts on the part of the individual to work their own way into heaven. Adventists keep the Sabbath because it is a blessing. Those who think that it merits them the Kingdom are no better than those Catholics who think that going to church on Sunday is a key ticket to heaven. The only ticket to heaven is what Christ said in JohnJohn 14:6, that He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. To get to the Father, you must go through Him. 

I will respond to other points as I go through them. WantedI wanted to get this down now.
