Not uncommon. Before seeking Anabaptism (when I only had "images" of Mennonites and Amish), I thought that Plain folk adhered to the OT. Many I know think this, too.
And evangelical groups like MAP keep perpetrating these lies, particularly how they claim the Amish are not born again.
Ah, that explains it. I was giving a quick talk to the Chinese group that I work with on the Amish, and I got this flame mail from one of the other workers, who goes to a KJV only baptist church.
<<Will this be exposing the Amish as a cult of people who are good, moral, and decent, but who are lost in their sins? They are entirely works based salvation with no eternal security who believe that baptism cleanses them from sin.>>
I guess they had to re-attach his jaw when I had to tell him that I did not, and never have believed in eternal security in the sense he does.
I guess now he and his friends are going to make conservative Mennonites their next target.
