I Appreciate the Amish Voice, By M.H.

Dear Amish Voice,
I have wanted to let you know for a long time already that I appreciate the Amish Voice. I have been getting it for more than two years and I just wanted to let you know how much my life has been impacted by the Bible truth that you point out. Some churches warn everyone in their communities not to read the Amish Voice. This bothered me a lot because I was able to learn so much, so I kept on reading them.
One of the bishops in our community started a Bible study with his family, and when the church found out about it, they threatened to excommunicate him. The last I heard, he quit having the Bible studies because of fear.
Thank you for the Amish Voice and the biblical truths that you teach. We must keep following God.

Dear M. H.,
Thank you for your encouraging words. May you always seek the truth of the Word of God.
While many church leaders encourage their people to read the Bible on their own, I, too, have heard of some who do not want their people reading the Bible. They want their people to be told what to believe instead of following Jesus and seeing what God says.
This reminds me of Martin Luther and the Reformation. The Roman Catholic Church did not want people reading the Bible on their own. They said that the church leaders needed to tell the people what the Bible meant. I am glad that Martin Luther and others wanted to get the Bible into the hands and hearts of the people. Once the people read the truth of God’s Word, they could be set free from dead works and religion.
Jesus taught us to search and know the Scriptures, and Paul told Timothy that the Holy Scriptures are able to make us wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 3:15).
We hope that you keep reading the Amish Voice, and especially the Bible!
