PostSubject: Amish Values: The Books   Fri Dec 01, 2017 11:46 pm

The Amish base their values/beliefs on their own interpretation of Luther's German Bible as well as the Martyrs Mirror, the Ausbund, and the Dordrecht Confession.

     **The Amish are concerned about practicing their faith instead of teaching the formal theological doctrines**

Luther's German Bible: Teaches them to follow the teachings of Jesus in their everyday lives by loving their enemies and forgiving the insults they receive from others.

Martyrs Mirror: In this book, their religious leaders died for their faith in the sixteenth century.
       Mutual Aid--Church members help each other in times of difficulties and disasters

  • Based on the religious principle that their practices should be separated from the world

  • The Amish see the kingdom of this world different from the peaceful kingdom of God

  • Teaches them that they should depend on the church community rather than government-operated Social Security and insurance coverage

The Ausbund:A book of hymns written by imprisoned Anabaptists in the sixteenth century

  • There are no musical notations

  • Primary book used in Amish worship services

Dordrecht Confession:  A book containing eighteen articles written by a Dutch Anabaptist

  • Before being baptized, the Amish review the articles of faith which also include beliefs such as nonviolence, excommunication, and shunning
