Comment on Saints or animal abusers? by Mary.
Well, I tell ya…I’m from Maryland and will be moving to the Ephrata, Pa area. God forbid I see some horse or animal being abused! I will completely come unglued. Amish or not, religious or not…I will lose it! I don’t think the Amish are going to like me very much at all. They have some nerve saying they think we’re “disturbing” their way of living…Well, eeexuuuuuse us! We have a God Given right (outside of societal views and laws) to say something and to insist that they treat their animals in high regard. Do I mean having them to the dinner table? No. I mean, treating them with the love and kindness that God states in his word. I thought these people were bible fanatics? If so, then they have misinterpreted the bible verse that states, we are head over the animals. We are! But that doesn’t mean we are to beat the living crap out of them when they don’t do what we’d like them to do. “A righteous man cares for the needs of his animal, but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel” (Proverbs 12:10) Apparently Mr. and Mrs. Amish are not as righteous as they’d have themselves believe. In Proverbs 27:23 it says, “Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds.” Well, apparently some of these Amish people don’t give a crap about what Gods word says. Here’s what I think and I believe…some Amish, not all, choose this way of living so they don’t have to operate and be accountable to anyone in the real world. What they fail to understand is in the end, baptised or not (by the way there is only ONE way to heaven…Christ says that in the Word as well…”I am the WAY the TRUTH and the LIFE, NO MAN comes to the FATHER but through ME!” I believe that one is in Acts) they will all be judged. I realize there are some who do not abuse their animals and it makes perfect economical sense to me that one would treat the crop or animal kindly as to get the most out of it, but then again you’re talking about a bunch of people who believe that education somehow spoils the soul…pa leese….give me a break already. Let’s just pray and hope I don’t see someone abusing their animal…I may end up in the county jail…enuff said.
