This group is for the open discussion about the Plain People also called the Anabaptists, spiritual descendents of the people in the 16th century whom the Lord used to restore the Church to what Christ intended it to be, to what it was like in the Book of Acts, chapters 2 - 6.
We represent traditional Anabaptist values, but also include discussions regarding less traditional Anabaptist views.
We can discuss the differences between the traditional Anabaptists and other religions but we will not allow members to promote other religions on this forum. Violators of this rule will result in being placed on moderation.
Spam, Flaming and Disruptive posts are the only things that will not be tolerated. Flaming is computer slang meaning an act or instance of angry criticism or disparagement. We will extend that meaning to include any criticism or disparagement of another person posting on this forum. This is a Christian forum and so we are obligated to follow the teachings and instructions of the Lord Jesus in regards to loving His brother and sisters.
Jesus said, "If you follow My teachings and obey My commands, you are truly My disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth shall set you free." (John 8:31-32)
"For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known." (Luke 8:17)
"You have heard that it has been said, 'You shalt love your neighbour, and hate your enemy'. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you." (Matthew 5:43-44)
