Read any good books lately? I did. I’ve been trying out Amish fiction, and this is the 5th book I read. First time reading something of this author. They are all different, because there are different sects of Amish. This one is an old order strict group, and poor Leah gets punished for reading a bible and trusting Jesus Christ for her way to heaven. The old order Amish is a cult. Satan is the author of confusion. I’m sure this book was all true, as it was most likely someones true story.
I read somewhere online that the Amish fiction books put christian beliefs into the Amish circles, and it isn’t always accurate. This book seems accurate and christian beliefs are not falsely written into the Amish way. Their way to heaven is gained by following the bishop and all he says.
Here’s Satan’s confusion: when they died at the stake from being a christian some 300 years ago, those martyrs would have never dreamed that the people coming from them 300 years later would not accept Gods way to heaven (through Jesus Christ). Satan had his way by bringing in confusion , by means of not letting the people read an english bible .
The old order Amish get the word of God from what the bishop says and no interpretation of their own. This sounds like way back when the bible in the Catholic church was chained to the altar (or table) and no one had a bible in their home. This book is what real old order Amish believe. Glad I read it!
