Product Description

The writer issues a stern warning to keep the Sabbath holy – “You who call your selves Christians………. will you disobey God’s holy and righteous Laws & obey your own carnal & sinful gratifications……” The pseudonym “Philant(h)ropos” was used by a number of clerics at this period. The severity of the warning could indicate a Non Conformist.
