I have been taught that we need standards, fences or guard rails to keep our sheep in. Why do we all have different kinds of fences or guard rails? We all want to have the strongest fences, and still the sheep may keep getting out. Didn't God give us a good enough standard? Didn't God give us the laws which govern how to build the strongest fences? How about going back to God's laws and leaving our own laws out, and see if that won't build a stronger fence?
Greetings of love in Jesus' name. How are you doing? I think of you often, and I have wanted to write you for a while, but our last letters felt rather cut off; it seems we are not seeing things eye-to-eye anymore.
I don't want to go on and on, writing many words because I feel too unworthy to admonish you. May I , instead, write a little about us?
When I was Amish, I was told over and over to surrender to and obey the Amish church. Last year, when I was in the ban for issues not related to leaving, I felt the Amish church was doing something wrong.
Mom, wondered how I spend my Sundays. I go to church almost every Sunday and five month ago I started to read my bible everyday. I can not even tell you how excited it makes me to talk and think about going to church. Every Sunday's service is different. I love it!! God is so extremely powerful.
