Your correspondent, upon Innminp
of a debate to be conducted b the
above named pnrtie, to commence
Tuesday eveninp. Feb 22, liaicmd or
er the snow-clnd hill. to the Martin
Hcboolbouwe, 10 miles south-cut of
town, with pencil and paper in hand.
Upon arriving upon the eccno of ac
tion he found a goodly number gather
ed together at aii early hour, .nnxiotn
to hear what could be paid on both
rides of thin question. After hinging
and prayer the question was read by
Eld. Hon per. ai follows: "Resolved
that the Scriptures teach the Sabbath
of the-Fourth Commandment is bind
ing upon Christians at the present
time. Then Mr. Cudncy Tmade th
opening flpeech. The elder read Mark
2 : 27: ''The Sabbath was made for
n:an, and not man for Sabbath."
Hie Elder paid: "While this text
does not give us all the desired infonn
sthtn concerning the Sabbath question,
yet it doea make nome statements that
are very important in the consideration
f this subject Firat, it ways the Saln
bth was made, hence wo are not left
to make a Subbath for ourselves. It
ho tolls uh for whom it was nuuk.
Home people tell uh it sm made for
tnc JewH only, but Christ says it wa
made for man. In order to show that
it Was only intended for the Jew, it
must first be shown that none but the
Jews are men. As there words were
ppoken by he Savior and written in the
cw Testament, we conclude the Sab
bath was made for the Christian man
as well as the Jew man. Wr arc next
led to enquire, when, where and by
whom was the Sabbath made ? Under
what ?ircu instances was it made, and
what was it made out of? In answer
to these question I will call attention
to thn following scriptures: John I; 3
All thing; wero made by him, and
without hirn was not anything, made
that was made. In order to under
Hand the antecedent of the pronoun
'him.' in this text we will refer to the
first and fourteenth verses of this chajv.
tcr; wc here learn that it was God the
Son who was afterwards made flesh,
and is said to bo the only begotten of
(he Father. Hence we conclude as the
Sabbath was made, and Christ made
everything that was made, he must
have made the Sabbath. How did he
make it? By reading the tenth verse
wo learn that 'the world was made by
him,' so whon we read in Gen. 1:1, 'In
the beginning God created the heav
ens and the earth' we understand that
the work was done by God the Son, as
directed by the Father, and as ChriHt
the Son of God, did the Bix days of la
tent wo ask ho rested the Seventh
day. Evidently tho ono that did the
work, and tho Scriptures already re
ferred to, as Heb. 1:1-4, S-10 and Col. 1:
12-17, dcclaro it was Christ. The same
oije that did the work and rested, hlex
sod tho seventhjday and sanctified it. To
sanctify is 'to set apart for a religious
use." W are now led to enquire what
constitutes a thing, a Christian institu
tion ? Certainly anything instituted
by Christ must be a Christian institu
tion. This we find to be tho case with
the Sabbath; Christ first rested not be
eauso'ho was weary, but to set us an
example, next he blessed the day and
et it apart for a religious use. The
peoplo were not furnished with a writ
ten law until after tho deliverance of
tho Israelites from Egyption bondage.
In tho third month after this the ten
commandments were spoken from Mt.
Sinai, and written on tables of stone.
In tho bo-om of this law wo find a
commandment regulating the observ
ance of the Sabbath, which reads, 'Re
member the Sabbath (Rest) day to
keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor,
and do all thv work, but the seventh
day is the Sabbath (Rest day) of tho
Lord thy God, in it thou shalt not do
any worn, cic. rome ten us me sev
enth day is the 8abbath of tnc Jews.
Tho Bible says nothing of the kind, it
says it is the Sabbath of the Lord. We
then enquire how long does the sev
enth day remain the Sabbath, or r&t
day of the Lord ? Answer, as long :n
it remains a fact that tho Lord rested
on that day. But it may bo asked, can
we not change tho Sabbath from the
jventh day to somo other day ? Let
mo ask can you change your birthday
from the day you were born, to a day
upon which you were not born ? Of
course not; neither can we change the
rest day of the Lord from the day he
did rest to some other dav upon which
lie did not rest. It is his rest day. or
Sabbath day, that wo are commanded
tc keep holy. Aotice, tho command
does not requiro us to make a day hoi v.
The Lord mado the seventh day holy
and now requires us to 'keep it holy,
and not desecrato it by laboring upon
it. Concerning tho ten commandment
law Christ says, 'Think not that I am
como to destroy the law or the pro
phets; I am uot come to destroy, but to
fulfil (establish,) for verily I say unto
you, till heaven and earth pass, (an
event that has not yet transpired,) one
jot or tittle shall in no wise paw from
the law, till all be fulfilled. Matt. 5,
17-18. The Apostle Paul in speaking
of the same law says 'Do we then make
the law; through faith?' God forbid:
Yea we establish the law: Rom. 3:31.
The law is thus established, as a whole.
hy both Christ and Paul. If it. is es
tablished as a whole it must bo estab
lished in all its parts. That portion
that says the seventh day i the Sab
bath as well as the other precepts.
Thus we learn not only the that Christ
made the Sabbath, but what he made
it out of. and that he endorses the Sab
bath command with the rest of the
'law and give us to understan i that it
is in force, and men are exoected to
obey it as long as the heavens and .the
Elder Newcomb followed bv stating
teat there is nothing in which we
houldbeso much interested as to obev
the commandments of God.
In answer to the affirmative he took
positkm that Christ existed only as the
word until he was born in Bethlehem
end did not exist as a personal being
p Co that time. Christ signifies an
enointed, and the anointing of Christ
was his baptkm; and prior to that
event he was not the Christ. He then
ought to show that the earth was cre
ated in six indifTerrent periods of time
of which the animal is the sixth and
that the seventh; and that the sabbath
. ef Genesis J23 is not yet ended that the
word "day" iudiflerrent, hence we
Wave had one continual Sabbath since
creation and will have henceforth.
He next took 'the position that the
first four commandments were positive
looa), national and periodical and giv
en only te the Jews. To sustain this
ne read from a work contaiuing the
see testimony of several authors on the
object, Bishop Butler Ac If a posi-1
IMSjSSbI iBank f
dispensation to another, it must- be
done by tho same signs and miracles
as was manifested at the giving of the
law; but as there was no such display
of powers shown to introduce the law
in the christian dispensation, therefore
we have no law in the christian di.-pen-except
what was given by the aponles
after the day of neutocost, for all laws
ewsential was given after pentecont.
Then he stated that Christ or his apos
tles intensified all of the decalogue ex
cept the fourth commandment and as
the sabbath command is contained in
that and as the apostles did not say
that wo should keep it we are under
no obligations whatever to keep it.
The first two commandments, he said
were intensified when spoken to Satan
Luke 4:8 ulxo that the law has no pen
alty and a law without a penalty is of
no force and "You havo togo uown'to
the law in the side of the ark for a
penalty to enforce the law in the ark."
The ten commandments is called the
law of Moses and has no mercy and
kuows'iiothing but death. We want a
a law of life to free us from tho law of
sin and death.
Elder C. followed by first answering a
few objections. First, Several asser
tions and no proof. The Question is,
"kesolvcd That the scriptures teach
that sabbath of the fourth command
ment is binding upon all enristiaus at
the present time." Elder U still con
tendsthat Christ existed before the cre
ation alo that lie was a personal being
Heb 1:1-3 8-10 Col. 1:12-16. One ob
jection that tho earth was created in
six, indifferent periods. Tliis he show
ed WHbunscriptural as in each account
of Gen 1 it reads, The evening and .the
morning were the first day, itc." and
that the last four days were ruled by
the sun. Besides six indefinite
periods aro equal to one indefinite per
tod. "This is the conclusion that our
brother is driven to by having the law
abolished at the crosses." He says
"The apostles did not command us to
kc-?p tho sabbath therefore we are not
obliged to keep it." J'He forgets then
that there would be a space of time
from the crucifixion until pentecost,
that thev had no sabbath nor law con
sequently no sin for sin Jis the trans
gresMon of the law 1st John 3-4; Koiu.
1:15." We call for a text that says
that the ten commandment in the law
of Moses. Wheref did chriat quote all
the three commandments. If he did
not quote the Sabbath to tho young
man in Matt. 19: 10-22 we want to
know if he quoted tho 3rd, 2nd, or 1st
commandment to him ? Christ did
not i-ome to destroy the law as lie af
firms in Matt. 5:17 but to fulfill. Now
to insert the wordjdestroy as some of
our friends would JJhave it. it would
read thus: Think not that I
am come to destroy the law but to
apply tho law to destroy. Apply Jthis
definition in other scriptures where
the word "fulfill" is used and it will
not answer in overy case. The Savior
taught that as lonir as heaven and
earth remained the law would be in full
force Matt. 5:13 Again docs the sab
bath belong to the Jews? The text
says it was mado for man. For the
lint man as well as for the last man
and Christ was the lord of it. Our
brother says that the Sabbath wasjused
in a general sense. But the 23rd and
24 verses of Mark 2ud chapter forbids
this as these verses have distinct refer
ences to the weekly Sabbath. The
New Testament further asserts that the
Sabbath was past when the first day
came Mark I0.I-2. the holy women
that followed their Savior, refused to
even perforin the labor of annoimmg
him at his tomb, but kept tho Sabbath
according to the commandment. Luke
23:54-56; 21:1. This is certainly strange
that they rested because the command
ment said so when according to our
brother it was done away at this tune.
For Christ, is the end of the law for
righteousness .to every one that believ
eth Rom. 10:4 Now if Christ is the end
of the Law, where will.our Sabbatarian
friends jjet their Sabbath ? If Christ
had not been without sin, the law
would have remained; but at Christ
had no sin the Law is abolished. The
Sabbath age was made for man that
is the age of man, and there has been
nothing created since tlve first six days.
The creation was finished with the
creation of man and there has been
one unbroken sabbath iroiu that time
until the present. Be it then claimed
that it is mete that we have ono sev
enth part of time, and that was given
to the Jews as a weekly Sabbath. I
did not mean that the six periods are
equal to one, but that there was six in
definite periods of time at creation.
Next he said that Christ intensified the
first and second commandments in his
reply to the adversary in the tempta
tion Matt. 4U0 and such portions of the
commandments as were not thus inten
sified are not binding on christians
Rom. 5:13 was offer red in support of
there being sin where there is no Law.
Moses wrote the Law in the book that
was kept by the side of the ark. And
in this book were written the ten com
mandments. And that Law was abol
ished. Now as the decalogue is a part
of that law, it was also abolished at the
cross. Yet the last six command
ments are moral precepts, which relate
to our duty to our fellow men, and can
not be abolished. Further the ten
commandments are called the coven
ant, so when the first covenant was
done away they were too. In Matt-1 9:
17 the Savior quoted all ihe command
menu necessary for him to keep. Yet
he did not quote sabbath, thereto e we
are not obliged to keep it. He then
showed that the law was Kood and
could bo kept. Because Jesus kept it
to show that it could be kept. If
Christ had broken it then he would
uot have any thing to oner for us, for
