Introduction: This thesis reflects part of the story of my life. Born a Roman Catholic, for the first eight years of my life I was compelled to go to Church every Sunday, never understanding why. Yet between attending the morning mass and the evening benediction, extremely unfortunately, I then spent the greater part of Sunday in finding my own pleasure on God's holy Sabbath (cf. Isa. 58:13). At the age of eight, I was converted to atheism. This meant a total breach with all Church attendance, and for the next fifteen years Sunday was my weekly vacation. The ecclesiastical holy day had become my personal holiday In the extreme mercies of Almighty God, at the age of twenty-one my soul was turned from my sinful ways to serve not the ecclesiastical tradition of fallible man, but to serve the living Lord according to His infallible Word to serve Him in every sphere, including the sphere of sabbath observance.
