If these sort of things can happen
to a peaceful religious community
like these conservative Christians,
what could be the future “fate” of
such non-christian groups?

Federal authorities raided the compound of a breakaway Amish group and charge seven men, including group leader Sam Mullet, with hate crimes. “We’ve received hundreds and hundreds of calls from people living in fear,” he said. “They are buying Mace, some are sitting with shotguns, getting locks on their doors because of Sam Mullet.” Members of the Amish community in; Ohio, Pennsylvania and Indiana, were frightened by recent hair-cutting attacks. —MILLERSBURG, Ohio (AP)
Mullet allowed the beatings of those who disobeyed him, made some women sleep in chicken coops and had sexual relations with some married ones to “cleanse them.” Several members of the group in eastern Ohio carried out the attacks by forcibly cutting the beards and hair of Amish men and women and then taking photos of them. Mullet’s complaint about the other Amish bishops is that: “They changed the rulings of our church here, and they’re trying to force their way down our throat, [to] make us do like they want us to do, and we’re not going to do that.”
U.S. Attorney said that religious differences are a matter of theological debate, not… violent attacks.” The men appeared in U.S. District Court in Youngstown, ordered detained by the U.S. Marshals and carry a possible penalty of up 10 years in prison. Authorities said before that some Amish refused to press charges, following their practice of avoiding involvement in the courts, and that: “It is not the victim’s job to decide or to bring charges. I think that’s a message I would like people to understand. These charges in this case are the result of our independent determination that crimes occurred.”
Since governments are willing to prosecute Amish extremists, this doesn’t bode well for certain white Christian and fringe Jewish sects! Not only has this event shocked the West, but it has drawn the attention of Muslims in the Middle-East and around the globe!

“How much longer, Oh God?”
“This blog is about good people coming together, to find the truest form of worship. They don’t like what’s happening in the churches, nor do they trust its preachers. It’s focus is on biblical research to understand, and do the true God‘s will; not that of false priests. Even if many aren’t ‘Christian’, the Bible and Jesus are well-regarded as reputable sources to learn from. Some recoil at this idea, since they know of Christendom’s atrocities and misrepresents Jesus.” …WOE TO THE FALSE SHEPHERDS!
“Yet allot of; Messianic Jews, moderate Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists agree with many of Jesus and the Bibles teachings. That’s why all should come together as one people of humanity to serve Yehuwah God. He’s our Creator, deserves our worship and we should learn the Bible’s basic teachings. The benefits to a united brotherhood and a greater understanding of ‘truths’ will far outweigh any fears associated with the challenge!” …OUR GOD IS ONE GOD!
”This can be easy, though we’ll have to do it without a religious organization. These have proved throughout man’s ages to become corrupt in a short time. So rather than imitating priests, imams, or shamans; we must investigate ‘the truth, about the truth!’ This requires that our studies include more than a search within the Bible, but excluding much of a theological context. These have added many false beliefs over the centuries, and many a historian has called then pagan beliefs and practice! In recent years archaeologists have uncovered more evidence to prove this.” …TRUST IN GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART!

If you’re like most normal people, you hope and pray for better world conditions. For it to improve we need to take charge of our lives. Yet many have never been trained to think that way, and continue to be manipulated. It’s no wonder that those in power continue to take advantage of others, because it’s by design!
This world’s ruling elites, clique parties, and military dictators have little concern for the people! Lately the masses have become outraged over corruption on all levels of government, and have protested. It has become clear that God is not going to change evil rulers, wicked groups or bad individuals. But if we change how we think, talk and act; God will approve and bless us with peace and hope.
There has been an increase of crime even in stable countries, and maybe your neighborhoods have gotten worse too. Yet; our lives can still improve by putting faith in our Grand Maker, and living by His righteous standards. In order to accomplish this; we need to believe in our Creator, and learn to practice what expects from us.
Thus; by listening more closely to our Creator, we can improve our relationship with Him. This will give us “peace of mind”, and joy in life; though things are tough. Until the time comes when God removes the wicked, we need to endure and keep up the faith. Isn’t that a goal worth striving for? It will also add fulfillment in your everyday lives!
