    Great article! It was nice to have all that information in one place to read. I have wondered what the differences where exactly, and you answered that question. Thanks!

    Who Leads the Amish Church?

    Although enlightening, I am interested to know more about their views regarding the New and Old Books of the Bible. Is the translation a matter of conjecture and symbolism, or are the words taken at face value?

    Church hierarchy

    Who do the Bishops report to? There is a Bishop in the area of Coudersport, PA that is not dealing with other they way that he should. Can you please tell me who he would report to?

    Are the Amish Christian?

    When God gave man dominion over the animals it was to care for, and protect them. Some Amish lust for money and run puppy mills where dogs may endure incredible neglect and cruelty. Not one sparrow falls that goes unnoticed by God, and good Christians know it. Those who participate in the puppy mill industry are fooling themselves and others when they claim they are Christian. They are anything but, and will be punished when the time comes. Those who know this practice is taking place but fail to do anything about it are just as guilty in God’s eyes. Everyone one of us will be called upon to answer the question “What have you done to care for that I have entrusted to you?” I hope God has more mercy on the puppy mill operators, and those who know about this evil but remain silent, than these evil people show for creatures that were created by and belong to God alone.

      Amish vs God's creatures

      Amen Roland, thank you for caring and praying for the abused and neglected.

      I searched the topic “who is in charge of the Amish church?” specifically to beg them to have mercy on and respect God’s four legged critters. The Amish proclaim to follow The Bible so faithfully . . . meaning there is but one Creator, yet they treat God’s animals, especially horses and puppy mill dogs horrifically!! How God must weep seeing the way his supposed devout Amish followers treat “His” animals. Puppy mill dogs sustain the Amish families yet they are used and abused while they are alive and thrown away like trash 🙁 The horses are worked to death again sustaining the Amish families yet many are treated horrific. It is much more sin to follow God, read his book, and defy it than it is to not know. Everything you read about the Amish proclaims they follow The Bible completely . . . how then can they treat God’s animals as they do? Sinful in Our Father’s eyes. For the many Amish who do care well for God’s creatures I am thankful. Having been in dog rescue for decades the abusers in the Amish community haunt the rescue world.

    D Gordon, I am thankful that you recognize there ARE Amish people who do care well for their animals! To be fair, we cannot class all of any group is a certain way… For example I do know of non-Amish people who are very cruel in how their animals are treated, but I don’t assume that ALL are. It always saddens me to see an animal neglected or cruelly used by ANYONE.
