Re: [Covenanted Reformation Club] swartzentruber's
- Dear Jasper,
I just spent the better part of the afternoon reading through this
website. Man... They could give Pharisees lessons in legalism. It
is especially maddening to read about the various types of abuses
that occur and the immunity that these people receive from the civil
magistrate for gross forms of abuse. It sure paints a different
picture of the Amish lifestyle than we are usually presented with.

- Hi Cheryl,
the public perception of the Amish is correct in some
areas and skewed in other areas. This particular sect,
the Swartzentruber's, is one of the strictest in their
legalism and lifestyle. I recently made some light
humor here in regard to this sect, but really there's
nothing funny about their legalism and its effect on
people. May our Lord bless you, Cheryl.

- The Amish are a strange breed, indeed. I've eaten in Amish homes.
I've been to their market places. I've even been on a horse and
buggy ride. And in some sense they are like all other groups: Some
of them are the nicest, kindest, most generous people you'll meet,
and some of them are incredibly rude and just plain foul.
I once spoke with an Amish man who was handicapped (he was a dwarf
who was wheelchair bound). According to his report, he was outcasted
by his society. They told him that his handicap was due to his
being "far from God." Yeah.... maybe THAT'S what caused his handicap
and not the incestual inbreeding committed by the "godly" in his
