SIMI VALLEY, Calif.--A debate of sorts is featured on the www.blowthetrumpet.org Web site. When John Ritenbaugh, pastor of the Church of the Great God, delivered a sermon arguing that it is acceptable for a Christian to eat in a restaurant on the Sabbath--and in doing so criticized a booklet called A Sabbath Test produced by the Blow the Trumpet ministry--the people at Blow the Trumpet considered Mr. Ritenbaugh's sermon a challenge.
As a result, the ministry, founded by Dennis Fischer in 2004, has posted a rebuttal to Mr. Ritenbaugh's points.
The refutation, written by Mr. Fischer and Art Braidic, argues that Christians should not eat out in restaurants on the Sabbath.
