Sabbath Keepers Obliterated
"Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet," and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law." (Romans 13:8-10)
Notice how the Apostle Paul states that love is the fulfillment of the entire Law. He clearly did not make Sabbath observance his priority, as do the Seventh-day Adventists. Moreover, Paul in this text is referencing the Decalogue. Yet, he nowhere even alludes to the Sabbath. This is ironic, given how Seventh-day Adventists view the Sabbath as a seal of God and even claim Sunday worship is the mark of the beast. "Whatever other command there may be" would include Sabbath observance. Paul sums up every possible commandment with love of God and love of neighbor.
