How to determine what books should be included in the Bible is an important topic. This post introduces a multi-part series on criteria of canonicity.
I wrote this piece over at Proclaimanddefend.org. I share an alternate perspective on New York State right now. There are many people who need the truth! https://www.proclaimanddefend.org/2019/02/01/come-over-to-new-york-and-help-us/
Continuing my series from last year, the traditionalist position on Sunday has three additional considerations, including (1) Rev. 1's reference to the Lord's Day is insufficient to the traditionalist position, (2) Psalm 118 is not sufficient to provide a basis for rejoicing on Sunday, and (3) There is no necessity for there to be an anti-type of the Sabbath in the Church Age.
While the traditionalist position provides some evidence in support of its position, there remain some problems with the position. The first three points include: (1) There is no explicit command for Sunday worship, (2) The historical references to Sunday are often in narratives especially in Acts that are difficult to conclusively apply, and (3) the command for gathering of donations in 1 Corinthians is overstated in its support for the traditionalist position.
One local church in my area advertised a "launch Sunday" for the first Sunday after the start of the school year. This betrays an acceptance of a worldly attitude toward summer. God wants us to pursue holiness always, and that includes attending your local church. We need the church all year round. If we have neglected church this summer, we need to repent (Rev. 2:5a).
