Re: Why are you a plain Mennonite / Anabaptist?

I'll give Boot a longer reply, but I want to make it clear I think plainness exists outside the scope of Swiss / Dutch / German culture. For example, Apostolic Nazareans are plain, yet their cultural background is almost entirely Eastern European. Romanian Pentecostals and Russian Baptists are (some...

Re: Why are you a plain Mennonite / Anabaptist?

Plain Christianity is a consequence, for me, of following the scriptures. Once I try to follow the whole message of what Jesus and the apostles teach in the scriptures, you end up being plain.

Re: Okay ladies, your turn!

I've know plenty of Orthodox girls and have yet to know any who dress in a way I would consider modest. The wear the exact same clothes everybody else does. As I understand modesty, you are describing it well -- not calling attention to oneself by one's clothing by wearing what everybody else does....

Re: Okay ladies, your turn!

I think this is where the Charity Affiliation hoped to bridge a gap somewhat better? If I know my history, Charity didn't intend to do that at first, but its kinda what they became. In our area (Lebanon/Lancaster County), the Charity people I know would consider themselves almost "better"...

I've know plenty of Orthodox girls and have yet to know any who dress in a way I would consider modest. The wear the exact same clothes everybody else does. A key difference in the plain Anabaptist world is that people who are a members of a plain church actually do have to live up to what is preach...

Re: Why are you a plain Mennonite / Anabaptist?

I chose to be a follower of Christ, including obedience to the full witness of the New Testament.

It seems that most bodies of believers who do the same thing are considered "plain". That's the only reason I'm plain.

Re: Salvation issues

Anabaptism has never been defined by accepting devout Catholics as legitimate disciples, though - its history is the exact opposite. If we all had taken the above approach, Anabaptism wouldn't exist, and we all might as well go back to being Catholic. I disagree. I think you can firmly serve Jesus ...

Re: Transition to a more *liberal* church??

If you're planning to transition to a more liberal church, you'd best get used to this kind of discussion and it being tolerated. There'll be a lot of it in your future. Trust me, brother. My wife and I are weighing the costs. We're actually surprised we haven't gotten any poison pen letters in the...
