Today is the first time I've seen this, but I agree with the sentiment

Although it's true that Eric isn't Jewish, his commitment to his religion is admirable. It was characters like that that saved many Jews during WWII. While I never saw this before, it's a great lesson in sticking to your ideals. I agree with the sentiment completely. Nothing is worth selling yourself short and betraying your beliefs, even if others think less of you for it.

Wrong Day

While I can appreciate the idea of keeping Sabbath, this is a very flawed message. Eric observed Sunday, the first day of the week as "sabbath". God set aprt the SEVENTH day as a day of rest, from the very beginning. It is not up to man to decide which day is the Sabbath. He, alone, decides which day is to be set apart, to be holy. We do keep to keep His Shabbat, and not the one of man's making.

A test of our commitment

If we give up our commitments for the sake of money, fame, etc. the principles behind our commitments are weak or useless.
