Wierd….

Thoughts from a stolen soul posted this blog about a court case involving Amish buggies and reflective orange tape…..

Even stranger – there’s this link to an Amish Web Portal – what the heck are Amish folks doing with a website???? I don’t get it….

According to their site:
“The Amish live by the Bible, their faith is based on the whole book, and they take it quite literally. Much of what we see about them that is “different” comes from the bible verse I John 2:15 ?Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the father is not in him.? This is the reason behind the avoidance of technology and new things. Many of the Amish do not use electricity because their Amish lifestyle is centered God, Family and self sufficiency, the Amish decided in the early 1900’s that linking with electrical wire would constitute a connection with the world that violates the Bible?s instruction not to be ?conformed with the world”

Uh….so why a website???

Share and Enjoy

    I don’t think the Amish know much about this website. Some business group decided to create this as an information and tourism portal. The Amish may have contributed information, but I’d be surprised if any of them lay a finger on a keyboard.
