GOD i remember growing up with people of this mentality

they will always find the hardest way to do something, they believe in
work, work, work

not work as trying to accomplishing something but work to keep you occupied
from exploring life.

but the biggest sin is reading books, thinking, using ones imagination and
individual expression

The Bible says nothing about showing your face on camera. I don't know what
Bible she is reading.

The problem with religion, whether Amish or any other, is that it is based
upon outside rules. Outside rules in life aren't bad but you cannot
regulate someone's inner spirit just with rules. There is a difference
between a living relationship with Jesus when you ask Him inside, and just
following religious rules. Jesus inside gives you a new life, a new
spirit, you are a new person called a "new creation".
No one can achieve this, only God can do it within you. Then you don't
have so much of the desires to do certain things. You will still have
temptations, trials and problems but there is still a vast difference. The
Bible itself says in Romans that no one seeks God, no one is good. Only
Christ was good, He kept the law and He borre all our sins, sicknesses and
problems so that we could have His life in exchange. This is a free gift
for the asking. It's not something you "earn" by "being good" and keeping
religious rules. Keeping religious rules will always lead to one of two
endings: self righteousness, in which you look down on and despise others
and thing you are better because you keep the religious rules and they
don't, OR
despair. Despair is when you realize you can't keep all the rules no
matter how
hard you try. Despair is supposed to lead you to Christ as your answer. But
if you don't know Christ loves you and is there as your answer to help you,
may be driven to other things such as drinking, drugs, suicide, etc. But
the truth is that inside of us we all know that we are not perfect, that we
do and think things that we feel guilty about (even though others or
society may tell us it's normal),
and that something is missing. We all need God because man and woman were
never made by God to run on their own. When humans run their lives and
society without God, we are without the inner fuel or inner life we need.
We are like electric wires without the electricity (God) to power us and
give us life. Unfortunately most Christian religions, as well as non
Christian religions, are basically man made
traditions of man trying to reach up to God, or trying to get to God by
supposedly spiritual or "good" things. This doesn't solve our basic
problem, however as we are still running on mere human energy, and without
God's life. We
are all born spiritually dead and separated from God's life because we
inherited this state from Adam and Eve. Adam rebelled and Eve believed the
LIE of the devil that she didn't need God, she could be as God herself. We
will never be gods, we
will never be truly OK without Jesus. Most Christian religions and groups
do go
off course in emphasizing various outer behaviors rather than focusing on
eternal life we receive from God. With God in you, His life flows and your
and interests will change. You will have access to His unconditional love
which we all desperately need. We all need love and acceptance and we are
not going to find the kind of love we need in another human or in fame, fun,
drugs, drinking, sex, etc. We have drives but our MAIN need is for God.
Him we are like we are starving. Unfortunately God is warped so much that
the way He is presented by religion and the way we naturally perceive Him is
very twisted from what He actually is. God is love and He loves us; He
sent Jesus to bear all our sins and sicknesses; He is not holding anything
against us and isn't mad at us but wants to help us. We need help and
because of the state we are born into. We are naturally proud and resist
idea that anything could be wrong with us or that we could need God or
something outside ourself. Even extremely successful and rich people still
are empty inside and need God. God is NOT like the Amish, Catholic,
Protestant or any other reliigion portrays Him. He is love. Basically we
to be rescued and helped out of our fallen human state. We are born
dead, and only God can give us Life. We have human natural biological life
but we don't have spiritual life. Our attempts at various faiths and
do not solve our dilemma but may serve to blind and fool us into thinking it
does hold our answer. A spiritually dead person is dead on the inside, in
his spirit, and needs to be born again. We can't be fixed we need to
die and receive a new spirit, which was done for us by Christ so that all we
need to do is receive Him inside as Lord and Savior. We are not good in
ourselves, and we don't seek God........He is the one seeking us. He loves
you. Ask Jesus to be your Lord and Savior and read a Bible for yourself
the help of the inner Holy Spirit. You don't have to earn anything or work
God, all He asks is that you believe and receive His solution, His free
gift of love for you which is Jesus Himself. No church or group is perfect.
True Christianity brings freedom, not rules conformity and bondage. You
cans till be yourself and have some fun. The choice is not between a
rigid religion of conformity vs total wild living. Receive true life in
and you will be a new person on the INSIDE, with eternal divine life and
that only comes from God. No religion, no group, and no human can give
that to you.

I wonder how many become teen parents.

Автор William Boynton ( назад)
This is what happens to many young people who's lives have been strictly
controlled by others, as opposed to being guided by parents and/or
organized religions. It's much like so many college freshmen who suddenly
have new-found, unbridled freedom, but no clue about what to do with it.
They've been controlled instead of guided. By the end of their 1st
semester, their grades are in the toilet, their driving records have been
seriously bruised, and many times they've had run-ins with the law.

Автор hats242 ( назад)
I think it's because they love God and want to obey Him. They are a strong
people to be able to follow their way of life and to forgo temptation. I
haven't visited any Amish places, but watched a lot of documentaries on
them.They seem to be loving people, so I am surprised they didn't at least
say hi, but some do keep very isolated. I am also captivated with how they
live- so quiet, peaceful, close knit families, self-suffcient. Those are my
favorite aspects of Amish life. 

Автор William Boynton ( назад)
Thanks for your reply. I'm really trying to understand the "why's" of how
Amish people live, Why is that?? I don't really know. I've only been
through Pennsylvania (and Lancaster) once. Unfortunately, it was a
whirlwind trip. Still, I found myself captivated by what all I saw. I
stopped at a roadside park for personal relief, and parked next to a
minivan with an Amish family getting out of it. I smiled and said "Hi!!",
but they pretty much ignored me. Made me kind of sad.

Автор hats242 ( назад)
I believe I saw the same documentary! I think they eat out like that just
as a treat. Was the family shopping at Target? Because I think they ate
there for lunch while out shopping. For the most part though, Amish people
are self-sufficient in growing their own food. 

Автор hats242 ( назад)
They view pictures of themselves as graven images. The Bible says not to
have any graven image (a picture or thing that you worship). So they avoid
pictures and cameras to prevent becoming prideful and making a graven image
of themselves. 

Автор William Boynton ( назад)
@ 3:15. How does having your picture taken or being filmed violate Biblical
teachings?? It's not like they had cameras during Biblical times.

What i don't like is that in shows like this the difference between a
religious and non-religious life is portrayed as the religious life being
just and pure and the "normal" life being one where you have to drink, do
drugs and sleep around. I am not religious, but my life doesn't evolve
around drinking, smoking and having sex Not being religious doesn't mean
you have to live your life like a 24/7 spring break. I do drink, but don't
smoke or do drugs (note: i'm from Holland). I'm a regular joe

Yes, it is true that ecological and organic farming methods will not
provide for 7 billion but the facts are that the resources that have
enabled chemical/fertiliser inputs into agriculture are on the decline.
There will come a point where industrial ag will not be able to keep
supporting 7 bill or more. Then those extra billions that have been
produced by artificial means will have to face desperate times. It then
won't be a matter of choosing which 3 bill or more, it will just happen.

"...worked at a store where they all bought their groceries..." your
statment is that all Amish going to this one store - that is "bunch of
horseshit". Also u cant know people that are not going to store at all
because they ARE NOT GOING TO STORE. I see absolute lack of logic in your
comment. And people using fire to warm food from stone age... I dont
believe that Amish people are like apes but u clearly trying to sell this
kind of picture.

Got a source for that? I fail to see why the body would care whether or not
a handful of the trillions of genes it ingests daily have been re-ordered.
There isn't a checking system - it all goes down to your stomach acid and
is broken down. Also, GM a) uses genes that exist in other 'natural'
species and b) does nothing mutations don't do anyway. There's no reason ti
would reject GM food. Seriously, learn2science.

Автор David Cameron ( назад)
For a start, you haven't actually answered any of my points. Oh, and I
could as easily say "oxygen is sick!" An empty statement is meaningless.
What, exactly, is wrong with genetically-modified food? I realise you're
going to come out with a bunch of illiterate hogwash I'll take great
pleasure in dismantling, but the rules of debate insist I give you a
chance, so shoot.

Fun fact: every single thing in existence ever can be described as toxic.
Even water thins your blood and destroys your cell via uncontrolled inward
osmosis if drunk to excess. It's all a matter of degree, and the level of
pesticides in food is low enough to not be detrimental to human health. Oh,
and we'd be able to support a maximum of ~ 4 billion people using only
organic farming methods. So, which 3 billion individuals so you want to
starve to death? Southern hemisphere? Born after July?

There may not be toxins but there is a LOT of artificial crap. Coming from

the food they eat may seem healthier, but amish conditions are both

one more thing..at the end of the video they said the Amish believe that
"Modern technology weakens the family and brings temptation & vanity."
There are a LOT of bad people out here nowadays, bad tv shows, bad movies,
bad music, etc.....it's up to YOU AND ONLY YOU to not give in to evil.
There's almost always temptation. Your family wont weaken if you stay
happy, talk to each other, and even if you do other things outside that you
never did b4 you can still be a family at home..

Автор FromA2mee ( назад)
(continued 2) I hope I didn't offend but in all seriousness, that's the
reality of it. We think if they don't accept Jesus Christ, they will not go
to heaven. BUT, out int he world we talk to Jewish people, we talk to
Atheists, we talk to Muslims, we talk to many different people with
different religions and accept them for who they are because you have to
"love your brother." There are prostitutes out there & we consider them
sinners, but i remember not all of them WANT to be doing it..forgive

Автор FromA2mee ( назад)
(continued) If you SHUN your family & friends...you are NOT showing
forgiveness at all. If the Amish religion considers it a sin leaving &
going out into the world, they don't have to APPROVE of it and they can
think it's a sin, (I'm sure a lot of us here have been in a situation where
you or someone you know wanted to do something you didn't agree with); For
ex. If you're Christian or anyone who believes in god and Jesus,
technically Atheists, Jewish people, and others are going to hell to us!

Автор FromA2mee ( назад)
All I have to say about the Amish is this. You're suppose to believe in God
and Jesus Christ right? it says in the bible... And when you stand praying,
if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in
heaven may forgive you your sins. " Mark 11:25 Then Peter came up and said
to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him?
As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven
times, but seventy times seven. Matthew 18:21-22

store where they all bought their groceries. They have some of the worst
eating habits I've ever seen. They have their own family farms, but have to
adhere to state farming standards just like everyone else. They're
integrated within the community, not completely separate. I butcher with
them every Thanksgiving.

But having all this fancy stuff just gives us English reason to envy and

life. No car=Not constantly having to spend money on gas. Sounds lovely.

Well, neither do a lot of people. The bible I go by says we are not
supposed to envy each other. Though many people do it... we are not
supposed to do it. I think many people who are not amish just feel like a
car makes it easier to get around. I believe God made people and gave them
the knowledge and will to help us out in many ways. Doctors.. lawyers...
those that invent cars...lights.. etc.. etc.. etc..

One thing I like about the Amish community is that the U.S. government has
no control over the food they eat, Amish people don't have to worry about
the tyranny of the USDA, which means they can eat healthy organic foods
that have no government-sanctioned toxins in it. 

Автор DrJay DrJay ( назад)
I think Mormons tend to convince themselves their lives make them happy cuz
that's what they're taught to believe. Because those who leave the Mormon
faith have a VERY different story to tell. For the Amish, it's generally
the same. Life is perhaps richer & more fulfilling for those who don't just
believe everything they're told from birth onwards (most religious folk),
since they actually have to THINK & reflect for themselves. In the USA, I
see a LOT of believing & very little thinking !

The funny thing is. "Rumspringa (Rumm-Shpringa)" is a word out of a german

germany and this is exactly the region i come from. And it means "jumping
around" if i translate it.
