Bishop Enright Letter


IAUA End Time Ministry

Preparing for the End of Time

The Lord is Coming!   Are you ready?


The SDA church is proud when the Roman Catholic Church points to Adventists as following the true Bible weekly Sabbath, when the Catholic Church criticizes Protestants. The SDA church will be quite surprised when the other shoe drops. One day the RCC will remind Adventists it also changed the Jewish festivals (the true Bible yearly Sabbaths). Those Adventists who have taught the observance of the RCC pagan holidays and spoken against God's yearly Sabbaths will face a dilemma and their hypocrisy will be exposed.

Seventh-day Adventists upholding the weekly Sabbath love to quote from Bishop T. Enright. They do not accurately quote the following letter from T. Enright CssR, Bishop of St. Alphonsus Church, St. Louis, Missouri, June, 1905.

"Dear Friend, I have offered and still offer $1000 to any one who can prove to me from the Bible alone that I am bound, under grievous sin to keep Sunday holy.

It was the Catholic Church which made the law obliging us to keep Sunday holy. The church made this law long after the Bible was written. Hence said law is not in the Bible.

Christ, our Lord empowered his church to make laws binding in conscience. He said to his apostles and their lawful sucessors in the priesthood "Whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be binding in heaven." Mth. 16:19. Mth. 18:17. Luke 16:19. The Cath. Church abolished not only the Sabbath, but all the other Jewish festivals.

Pray and study. I shall be always glad to help you as long as you honestly seek the truth.


T. Enright CssR

What is usually quoted is “The Catholic Church abolished the Sabbath". If this letter is fully quoted, Bishop Enright stated, “The Catholic Church abolished not only the Sabbath, but all the other Jewish festivals.” What an amazing statement!


The church will soon face a realization. The weekly Sabbath and the yearly Sabbaths are inextricably joined together. When the church is confronted with this glaring contradiction to their teaching and practice, there will be three choices.

1. They can continue to keep their heads in the sand and ignore the situation. This will become increasingly difficult and embarassing in the time of trouble as persecution increases.

2. They can correct their hypocrisy and contradiction by embracing all of God's Law. This will require them to admit they have been wrong. I am afraid pride will keep many from admitting they were ever wrong.

3. They can submit to the pressure and recant the truth and decide they were wrong about the Sabbath. Many former Sabbathkeepers have already done this. Those who have not studied truth for themselves will easily become confused when confronted by their hypocrisy, the glaring contradictions and join with the Catholic Church.

In the coming time of trouble the church as an organization will fall. The true church of those who believe and follow all of God's truth will go on. Time is short and the coming persecution will be very intense. There will probably never be a new organization created.

Those who follow God will stand as individuals and little companies. They do not depend on others for their understanding of truth. They trust in God and not the failing arm of man.

Jeremiah 17:5 Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.
