[Sunday School]

When Robert Raikes started the Sunday School Movement, the Archbishop of Canterbury called together the bishops to see what could be done to stop him, for, he said, it was a violation of Exodus 20:8.


In the late 1700’s "Sabbath (or Sunday) School Societies" were started here and there throughout the young United States of America.

But at first, many members of the clergy were opposed to them, maintaining that it was a desecration of the Lord’s Day to hold school on Sunday.

A pastor in Connecticut said of a class held in his church on Sunday, "You imps of Satan, doing the devil’s work. I’ll have you set in the street."
