Someone emailed me the below link, with his comments and question:
This in one of about six recent posts on this problem.
Why did God put so much importance on human sexuality?
Even the gender-radical feminist icon Germaine Greer has made a semi-anti #MeToo statement recently. Noting that rape becomes violent only if the woman resists and that "a man cannot kill a woman with his penis." Curious.
What think ye?
[What a remarkable date today is, 1/20/2020... so sad this is the topic at hand.]
Unfortunately, the "crimes" of the Amish are not limited to holding down their rival and shaving his beard off. The Amish, for some time, since it USED to be a "closed" system, had a problem with "in-breeding"... but this takes it to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL (and HOPEFULLY this has not been a problem over the past several centuries, but has only erupted in the modern age due to neglect of obeying God's Commands). In an evil society, sometimes being backward is a good thing. Unfortunately, in this case, it is not.
This is a VERY sad indictment... of course the liberals will use this with the leftist slant, that the problem is "religion", people not being indoctrinated in the public schools,* 5 days a week, for 12 years, and "patriarchialism" and "separatism"... and trade one form of indoctrination and humanism and immorality for one that is "state sanctioned". That is the issue... it has to be a "state approved" form of perversion, such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Judaism (which has nothing to do with the Old Testament, which is but a mere cover story, it has to do with Talmudism), American Indian spiritism or African voodoo or shamanism, witchcraft, etc., humanism, atheism, men and boys having sexual relations, lesbians, wife swapping, drag queen story hour, homoparades with full nudity and sex in the streets in front of children, teaching grade schoolers about homoperversion, group sex—all consensual of course (just ignore the contradiction that minors are not legally capable of giving consent and all such "teaching" and activities are child abuse and contributing to the deliquency of minors).
[* Sadly, while modernly the Amish (at least those in the story at the link above) under educate (which is an understatement, if the youth and young adults don't even know the name of body parts) the former excellence of U.S. education can only be attributed to Christianity. Queen Victoria said, "Britain is great because Britain is good; if Britain should ever cease to be good, it shall cease to be great". That greatness, even as that of all the nations of Christendom, was and is due to Christianity. The major institutions of learning that set the Standard (from which they have departed) were Christian and primarily Puritan. Even today, Christian schools and homeschoolers far outshine the state public schools. Princeton, Yale, Harvard were established to teach Christianity, to teach the Bible—intermixed in all other subjects to produce the best PEOPLE (not merely slaves in the "government" cog) to, in accordance with the Puritan Work Ethic: work hard, be honest, provide a good product or service and glorify God and best serve ones fellow man (kinsmen). The U.S. public schools now turn out students who have a 5th grade education—or much lower. for the first century and a half, illiteracy was virtually unknown and in order to get into college one had to be able to read, write, and debate in English, Latin, and Greek. Now a large percentage of incoming freshmen even to ivy league schools cannot do simple math, construct simple sentences, or even fill out the application on their own—due to the continual dumbing down process, the delight of multi-culturalism. Ivy league institutions of higher learning have had to implement remedial courses (that is a "remedy"—trying to teach them, in their freshman year, 12 years of what they SHOULD already know, so that hopefully in the remaining 3 years of "college" they might actually learn something collegiate!
A 20-something girl in my small town came into the post office a few years ago. She was at the counter, hesistating to write on an envelope, and asked the clerk: "It's been awhile since I've done this. Am I "TO" or "FROM"...? I've heard of someone not knowing if they are coming or going, but that takes the cake! This is SAD! This is EMBARRASSING. This is DEATH. This is educational warfare that has purposely been waged against us to destroy us. It has been a moral and spiritual war, as well as educational, from the silent and corrupted, perverted pulpits of the land (which no longer teach the Word of God, the doctrine of the Reformation, but humanism with a few Christian quotations as garnish) and formerly Christian institutions, now secular institutions, and the Talmudic media, entertainment, and book and music publishers (the secular giants have even bought out most former Christian publishers and recording labels and undertaken a theological and moral shift there too). For more details on education, see my The Other Side (contains 5 in-depth treatises on: 1: False Prophets of Peace: Is Communism Really Dying?; 2: Public School Education in America Today: Programmed to Fail Through Educational Warfare; etc.) 460pp., plastic comb-bound, 22.50 + P&H. See also the erudite Dr. Gordon H. Clark's, A Christian Philosophy of Education, 175pp., 10.25 x 7.25, pb., 13.00; Hb., 17.00 (reg. 19.00) + P&H.]
The problem is the Amish (or Mennonite)... like any Protestant denomination TURNING FROM sound doctrine (the center of which is that God abolished His Law—which includes the JUDGMENTS for the violation of other parts of His Law)... it has to do with evil NOT BEING CUT OFF. "Forgiveness" and "repentance" do not mean that the judgment for crime is waived! The problem is even those in communities that are wonderfully cut off from the evil world, not dealing properly with their own sin, not properly loving God and teaching their families HOLINESS; the problem is Pharisaical lip service while being white washed sepulchers full of dead mens' bones; of going through the motions but being unconverted, spiritually dead... and living just as wickedly as the world, in their own little world.
The nonsense of the person that you quote is abominable... rape is the most intimate violation possible, is a sin against God, against the woman (or man, in our uber-perverse society), and against the woman's husband / father. It can also be considered tantamount to kidnapping... Jacob never again had relations with Bilhah after she was defiled by Reuben. It is as if Reuben kidnapped her forever. Absalom (acting upon the vile, vengeful advice of Ahithophel, David's formerly trusted advisor) did the same thing when he defiled his own father David's concubines. It is also grand theft. If the woman is a virgin, it steals her virginity, payable to the father according to the dowry of virgins, and the rape pollutes her for a time, robs her as well as her husband, on multiple levels, and also may even permanently defile her by disease... which affects the father / husband (and indeed, possibly the entire family) as well as the woman herself.
Just transpose that nonsense in the above sentiments (of the gender-radical feminist) to any other crime. Thus:
- Robbery is only violent if you don't give the robber the $ that he wants or if you resist.
What about homorape? a homopervert psycopath (the only type) raping a sane, straight, moral person?
- The homorape is only violence if you resist.
This is a leftist desensitization to morality, to demoralize us (a demoralized people is easy to conquer), and it desensitizes us to WAIVE our God-given, inalienable right to resist ALL assaults (including those by corrupt government, invading aliens, etc.).
In every generation there are perverse individuals in every society of our people—God commanded certain crimes / sins to be capital offenses... so the offender would be cut off from the land of the living—executed; so that that morally perverse blood would not be reproduced. Our modern prison system allows it to reproduce, even giving conjugal visits! What kind of "punishment" is that...? 3 meals a day, no rent, health care, you don't have to work, and you get conjugal visits...! —all at the taxpayer's expense of $80,000/person (which is about the real average cost to incarcerate, as I showed in an email a few weeks ago, and as I will show in my book Liberty Document). How does that prevent crime? It is a crime itself against the people!
Cut them off from among us, put such sin away from the community, is what God commanded, whether an Amish community or NYC. But since we have not... the homopervert bloom resulted in homomilitancy and pedophilia will soon be legalized and along with it incest...! And healthy, sane, rational, moral people are intimidated (if not brainwashed) into not only tolerance, but acceptance and allowing it to be shoved in our faces and attempting to force us to celebrate perversion and mental derangement as if it were wholesome, normal, and godly.
I seriously that doubt this was a problem in the Amish / Mennonite community 100, 200, 300 years ago... even as all modern Protestant denominations have corrupted their faith and embraced semi-romanism / humanism / paganism in various forms (all with a "good excuse" such as Christmas and Easter and Sunday)... as well as polluting their doctrine and practice with modern notions of "political correctness" and the "new morality"—so also have the Amish / Mennonites—and those whose theology and doctrine was not that great to begin with... don't have as far to fall...!
I descend from the very first* (1701) and the second** (1702) Mennonite Bishop in America, and many other early prominent Mennonite bishops and ministers, those who spearheaded the translation of Martyrs' Mirror from Dutch to German in Ephrata, Penna, those in charge of various synods and conferences. Generations of my ancestors and relatives are buried in Lower Skippack Mennonite cemetery / Lower Salford Mennonite cemetery in Montgomery Co, Penna.
[* Willem Ruytenhausen / Ruddinghuysen (1644-1708) — though of a German family he adopted the Dutch form of the name while he was in the Netherlands learning the papermill trade—that is, Vilhelm Ruttenhaus [originally Rittershausen]. Rittenhouse Square in Phila. was named for a cousin of mine [David, a scientist and friend of Benjamin Franklin's] descended from the same Mennonite Bishop.
** Jacob Henrichs Godtschalk [Van Der Heggen] (1669-1763).]
However, none of my ancestors alive at the time that I was born or raised were Mennonite (and probably had not been for several generations)... I have only learned this in my own research, a few years ago.
Regardless, in my study of church history, the Reformation, true Reformed doctrine, etc., of the Amish, Mennonites, and Moravians, etc., their doctrine is not the best; and like Quakerism* ... it sort of relies on the "honor system" and it relies heavily upon "personal experience" / mysticism... and is nondoctrinal (that is, unbiblical) "Christianity" (another word for humanism**).
[* William Penn was a cousin, as was Daniel Boone, and other early prominent Quakers in the founding of Germantown Penna., as I descend from 11 of the 13 founding families and many other prominent early founders... most of whom were Mennonite or Quaker.
** Thus, some Quakers were better than others, because it has little to do with Quakerism, but the individual person: whether his humanism is of the most-secular sort; or whether his humanism is interspersed with enough true Christianity and true conversion to actually make him a better person (since all are depraved at conception, and there is no basic goodness of man—and those who believe otherwise call God a liar.]
Just because someone was / is Amish or Quaker really does not mean a thing, any more than someone being Baptist. It is a mere label, unfortunately. In fact, though most people are unaware of it, William Penn was actually conned out of the entire Commonwealth of Pennsylvania by a fellow "spiritual" Quaker—about 400 years ago! His trusted, right-hand man realized that Penn never read anything that he put before him daily to sign, he just trusted him and signed the daily business. One day the despicable assistant drew up papers of transfer of the entire Commonwealth from Penn to himself. Fortunately, an honest court judge overruled the "contract" recognizing that the only reason that Penn would have ever signed such a paper was due to fraud; and therefore, it was not a legal transfer! If such could happen even nearly a half a millennia ago, what do you think happens today? Despite the false doctrine of meliorism, and all humanist notions, society is not "getting better", because man is not getting better. Evolution, likewise, violates all known science. Things don't progress on their own, they decay. Entropy rules, even as does gravity.
Even (as I explained in my book, Who Was the Serpent in the Garden...? ... and the Waters that Covered the Earth) as a very interesting report by Brian Thomas, M.S., “New Genomes Project Data Indicate a Young Human Race” in 2008 revealed that due to the fact that gene anomolies in DNA coding are cumulative, the human race has to be younger than 300 generations. As I show, based upon my A Coordinated Chronological Table of the Patriarchs* it is only about 184 generations maximum from Adam to the present. So also, I believe that without TRUE REVIVAL / REFORMATION there is a parallel or corollary doctrinally among "Christian" denominations — the moral and spiritual atrophy and entropy and "gravity" of sin have a similar cumulative effect in doctrinal, moral, and spiritual decay among those who consider themselves "Christians".
[* A Coordinated Chronological Table of the Patriarchs: From Adam to the 12 Tribes of Israel and the death of Moses... From Creation to the Exodus... [Covering 26 generations and 2,553 years of history, with around 3,000 co-ordinated dates.] — a 10-year project - 38” x 50” full-color wall chart showing all Patriarchs from Adam to Moses; how old each was at time of all other Patriarchs; age in relation to Flood, 2 Calls of Abraham, Tower of Babel, Sodom & Gomorrah, Exodus; dates in terms of age from Adam, and B.C. dates by 8 different methods / chronologists; incorporates 2 other small charts: calendar of events of the Flood & difference between Masoretic and Septuagint chronologies; clears up numerous chronological mysteries, 2 dozen pictures. Most-detailed, comprehensive work of this kind ever attempted. A wealth of info. Invaluable to any Bible student, pastor, author, researcher. Easily see who was alive and when and in relation to everyone else and certain key events. 27.50 + 7.50 P&H in rolled tube (several posters ship in the same tube for one shipping price).]
Of course, the modern counterparts among the Amish and Mennonites departed from the writings of Jacob Amman and Menno Simons, and like the majority of modern Baptists and Presbyterians and other "churchgoers" (the few that actually exist), they are ignorant of history and doctrine and follow, half-heartedly, the watered down, humanistic, traditions of their elders and go through mere ritual because that is what has always been done, without any real conversion experience, without any real understanding of the Word of God.
THAT is the genesis of the problem in the disgusting story at the link above. Because they have separated themselves from the world and live more simply, merely means that they will not be as affected by the more blatant sins of others, broadcast through tv, movies, music, clothes, advertisements, billboards, etc.; but their living in simplicity and seclusion does NOTHING to solve their own SIN NATURE. Thus, though they will not be "big league", they will still be corrupt... even as a small town of 3,000 will have corruption in politics, though it cannot compare to the millionaire and billionaire movers and shakers of corrupt politicians and big business in a megacity, it is corruption nonetheless.
Amish groups are also absorbing Africans, Asians, and Hispanics. That probably accounts for it being "fast growing". Satan draws the enemy to cozy up to God's people and attempt to wiggle themselves into the family—to destroy God's people. They may think they are sincere; or they may do it to destroy. The result is the same: the destruction of God's people into a mingled people who are not His people; and the destruction of the true Faith and His True Moral Standard / Law.
Why did God even create sex? Everything has boundaries, and needs to be in moderation.
The same thinking applies with food... Why would God make 1,000 different things that taste so good (and still most of God's people want to eat abominations that He forbade)...?
Why would He not simply make for us a single, tasteless nutrition pill?
1. because He created all (within moral boundaries that He established, which NEVER change) for our enjoyment as well as for the main utilitarian purpose; and
2. as a test.
The same thing applies to other forms of addiction, as well as other racial / familial / gender / marital, etc. boundaries that God established within social and sexual relations. If something cannot be crossed, it is a barrier, not a boundary; and a barrier is no test of obedience.
Likewise, it could be queried whether there will be any women in Heaven either—for those who rebel against their fathers and husbands, rebel against God Himself... and how can a woman who rejects her husband as God's Authority in her life, be so deluded into thinking that Christ will claim her as part of His bride, since she has demonstrated refusal to be submissive? Understand, the act does not create the nature; the nature creates the act. Those who live in opposition to what God commanded, most probably, have never been converted. This indeed seems to be a corollary to "how can a man love God whom he has not seen, if he cannot love his brother whom he has seen...?" Christ certainly will not accept a bride who will treat Him the way she treated her husband on earth. [And excuses to divert from self are meaningless shams.]
Christ will not return for a rebellious bride unwilling to submit to His Rule. That is why God is culling out the chaff from His wheat, by the flood that the Dragon has spewed out of his mouth. Scripture says if a women is not obedient to her husband then she blasphemes the Word of God (Titus 2:5).
However, the "obedience" that God's Word commands of women to their husbands, in all things, as unto the Lord Himself does NOT include that which God forbade (such as incest, adultery, fornication, homoperversion, etc.). If someone in authority orders someone under his authority to disobey God, the person in lower authority is not in rebellion if he does not obey the immoral order. The person in higher authority is the one who is in rebellion. The person of higher authority has stepped out of the chain of command and the person in lower authority should then continue to obey the next higher up authority (and there can be only one higher authority in such matters, because no one has the authority to set aside what God commanded in His Word—which never changes; despite pandemic false doctrine to the contrary): God.
In such cases (as the Amish women being abused) if women (mothers, sisters, daughters, neighbors, etc.) do not bring the crime to the attention of the authorities, then they share in the guilt of the perpetrators and are actually accomplices (even as Achan's whole family was stoned, for he hid the accursed thing / stolen booty that was God's, in the floor in the midst of the tent, and therefore, clearly, the whole family knew about it). If the Amish community church authorities do nothing, then indeed anyone who is godly and knows about the crimes being committed should go to the secular powers—and everyone involved should be punished; for to hide / cover / ignore someone elses sin makes you an accomplice.
Women with the spirit of Jezebel, who reject the rule of their husbands, who act like the boss, who attempt to manipulate rather than be in submission, are on very shaky ground concerning whether they will be in Heaven—because quite possibly they are not converted. It is not the Holy Spirit who fills them with the Spirit of Jezebel. As I have long written, "Where no fruit is evident, the Holy Spirit is not resident". It is no test of obedience to "pick and choose" what you will "obey"—and it is NOT even obedience, but doing what you want. Slaves and servants don't choose what they will obey; and God compares children and wives—and men too—to servants and the chain of command and parellel of authority in general is the same (whether slave to master; child to parent; private to general, employee to boss, wife to husband, church to church leaders, etc.). Furthermore, obedience includes doing what was commanded with the right attitude. To go through the motions of obedience, with a cold, bitter, resentful, evil heart is NOT obedience. God says, "For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry" (I Samuel 15:23). Those who "gamble with their souls and eternity" thinking God won't judge, most probably are not converted, or they would not consider their soul or eternity something worth gambling with; they would not think God's chosen authority in their lives to be so unimportant.
God save Your people! Pour out Your Holy Spirit as you promised to CONVICT THEM OF SIN... the knowledge of what sin is, their guiltiness of it, shame, and true repentance (which entails turning from what God forbade and turning to and doing what He commanded) and the Presence and Power of the Holy Spirit to want to obey, and the ability to actually be obedient to You in all things.
[Also, showing how pathethic (possibly unconverted) most "Christians" and "Churches" are, a few years ago I spent 36 hours researching the internet, finding email addresses of Amish, Mennonite, and conservative / Reformed Presbyterian churches, etc. Because I care about the dying faith, I put together a PDF flier of books on the history of the faith, Amish, Presbyterian, Reformation, and posters / charts that I produce, all rare and important titles... which, with dial up, in about 6 separate bulk emails (which took 3 hours each) I then emailed that info to 2,000 different churches...
All my time and effort was well rewarded. Of the 2,000 churches, ZERO ever replied showing any interest; several dozen sent nasty emails back saying "take me off your list"—even though at the very top of the email I had clearly stated, "You are NOT on any email list, this will be a one-time email, as I wanted to let you know about these important Reformed resources)... and numerous individuals, it seems, reported me to their email server as a SPAM ABUSER—and without any trial or remediation process, based upon mere accusation, I was put in the "email Bastille" and "internet purgatory" for 4 months, and I could not email many individuals even on my regular email list whom I had emailed for a decade, because the internet rejected any email I attempted to send to any person with those totalitarian servers (like Yahoo, Frontier, etc.). THAT is the "Christian" character and "love for the faith" that even REFORMED "Churches" have... Likewise, I get Amazon customers ordering Christian books, who prove themselves to be not Christians at all. In the rare event that there is a problem with the shipment (or the customer simply decides, after reading the book, to lie and make up an excuse to return the book for a full refund, or according to Amazon's policy—he doesn't even need a reason to defraud the seller, read the product and then return it) if such "Christians" have a problem, instead of simply bringing it to my attention, such as in the very rare case, if a book was mistakenly "used" and not new (and had pencil underlining on one or two pages out of 600, which missed, or if I accidently sent a used copy, thinking I was grabbing the new copy), they leave DISHONEST feedback, actually even LYING, and one even reported it to Amazon and Amazon BANNED ME from even listing that title ever again. Based upon mere accusation, without proof, WITHOUT ANY INVESTIGATION, without being heard in my own defense. Such is the totalitarian communism exercised by such megacompanies, who like corrupt politicians, think that they are above the law. Paypal does the same thing, and other similar companies, like Amazon, who falsly imagine that they are the moral conscience of the world and they have the right to impose their own "moral" (without any legal, religious, or philosophical authority) on the rest of the world; because being multi-billion dollar corporations, most, it seems, don't care if they violate the law or violate someone elses rights. They could drag a lawsuit out for decades, spend millions of dollars, and never even miss it, but the tiny individual wanting "justice" would have to sell his house and be bankrupted, starved out for decades, with little chance of ever winning, while the rest of his entire life is put on hold and neglected. This is the antichristian, Talmudic "legal" system that has replaced our Justice System—and corrupt politicians do nothing to stop it. They are accomplices. May God convict and bring to repentance and true conversion, or reward all such evildoers who delusionally think they are Christian, who are clearly devoid of God's Holy Spirit.]
