Religious Issues in Sunday Hunting

by Steve Sorensen
(Originally published in the Warren Times Observer, Warren, PA., January 7, 2006.)

Is keeping the Sabbath motivated by spiritual legalism?
Jesus said that the Sabbath is made for man, not man
for the Sabbath. Is God honored when we keep the Sabbath
because we want to, or because we must?

Sunday hunting is illegal in Pennsylvania — with a few exceptions — but its legalization is inevitable. As hunters have less time to hunt, as they continue to see fewer deer, and as access to land becomes more difficult, Sunday hunting will become a hotter and hotter issue until Pennsylvania joins about 40 other states in legalizing it.

    Personally, I don’t hunt. Though I would to feed my family. But, if I hunted, I would do so before churchand Sunday school, with a careful eye on the clock to allow clean-up time. Many churches have dropped Sunday evening services, so hunting after churchwouldn’t be aproblem except during revival. 🙂 I honextly cantse a Biblical reason for making Sunday Hunting illegal. Isn’t feeding you family of more weight than getting your mule out of a ditch? (Look it up!)

    Regardless of anyone’s religious beliefs, no one should force  those beliefs upon anyone else. going to church, or hunting, or engaging any any legal activity,no matter what day of the week, should be a personal choice, and not subject to someone’s arbitrary personal views.
