Lunar Sabbaths – Truth or Fable?

There is a new theory that has recently surfaced that has caused confusion for some people. It is the theory of the Lunar Sabbath (that the true Sabbath is determined by the moon).  The resources offered on this page are the result of our study on this topic. We offer them as an aid to those who are wondering about this theory. Their purpose is to defend and uphold the true Sabbath of the Lord (the seventh day).

The material here provides biblical and historical support for the Sabbath. Some of the resources are historical writings from the Seventh-day Adventist pioneers. We were instructed to re-print the writings of the pioneers.  We are further admonished that “We have nothing to fear for the future, except as we shall forget the way the Lord has led us, and His teaching in our past history.” {Ellen White, Life Sketches 196.2}

The wise man said it well when he wrote there is no new thing under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 1:9). May God bless you as you study and may your faith in the true Sabbath be established.
