What is ‘the world plot’? In my vocabulary ‘the world plot’ is the cosmic conflict over the character of God. Is there a connection between Sabbath and the world plot? If there is, what is it? In conversations I have had with others about this subject, it seems increasingly evident that the Sabbath’s limited success in our time owes to the possibility that its promoters are confused about the relationship between the Sabbath and the world plot.
