    Quakers Anabaptists?

    Hi Sydney, Quakers were a separate movement from the Anabaptists. Like Amish and other Anabaptists, they have traditionally been considered a peace church (believing in non-resistance).

    Quakers Anabaptists

    Not to contradict, but Quakers do not believe in non-resistance. They are pacifists. The two are not the same. Non-resistance covers one’s entire life choices while pacifism is confined to war and peace issues. Pacifism also usually includes political action such as non-violent resistance. Non-resistance precludes any political activity.
