Do you think living an Amish lifestyle is a good thing?


Do you think living an Amish lifestyle is great, or keeping young people from the real world as it is today (technology and all)? My concern would be that simple though the way of life is, the children are incredibly sheltered from basic realities of life on earth as it is today. Having recently followed the TV series 'Breaking Amish' it became very apparent how unprepared for the 'real world' these youngsters were, plus the fact they were shunned by their families simply for choosing to try living in 'the real world' for themselves.

    Jesus was crucified because the Priests were jealous. So, it is basically impossible to secure a society that is unspoiled, unselfish, not self-righteous, and nonviolent. Man is the master of his destiny so when violence occurs man created it.

    I largely agree with you for all the reasons you have given, indeed the lifestyle in many ways appeals to me. I guess my problem is more with the way those who choose to leave that way of life are shunned by their families for clothing choices etc.

    Lol, I actually find the smell or horses quite pleasant, and even their poo is only digested grass and grain so not an unpleasant smell (at least to me). Horses as transport are one of things I really like about the Amish lifestyle.

    Correct. When immoral actions are permitted to be accepted as moral, the moral individual draws suspicion. Prov 24 Follow thou not evil men, desire thou not to be with them. For the soul of them bethinketh ravens, and their lips speak frauds.

    Amen.

    An interesting point, but then again you can't always believe what you read in newspapers either! I agree some families shun their children for choices they make, but 'rarely' for ones so ridiculous as wanting to wear western clothes etc.

    I thumbed your comment down because you're basically telling those raped Amish women that left their family....their reality is questionable therefor a lie maybe...It saddens me that you would question their honesty...
