This is Day 18 of a 5 week session on Anabaptist History. This message starts with a little tribute to Dirk Willems the famous Anabaptist Martyr that rescued his enemy from the ice only to be later burned at the stake. After that the decline of the Mennonite Church in Holland is discussed. Reflections of the church in America is suggested. Finally the Mennonites in Russia are introduced including their early mission emphasis, connection with the Moravians of Herrnhut and discussion about their early Revivals.
Helpful, thanks. Now if I could just figure out if there is a denomination distinction between liberal and conservative Mennonites (ala the Presbyterians)

Some congregations have veered into promoting the homosexual lifestyle and, in some cases, performed homosexual "marriages". To me, they have ceased to be Mennonites when they have participated in this.
This film only shows the liberal side of the Mennonite family. Where are the Old Colony and the Kleine Gemeinde? You might have mentioned and shown them but it seems the liberal side of the Mennonite tree is embarassed by their fellow Mennonites who have not departed from the original principles of the faith.
never knew they were exempt from war
Remind me of what my mentor says. "They want to call themselves mennonite but they don't want to look or act mennonite"
If Mennonites are not willing to defend their nation and freedom with even weapons they will have to keep on running or secularizing. They are making the mistake to want to be exclusive, together with the Amish and the Hutterites. To be a good believer is not an end in itself, but only preparation for something better and higher; this time we have the Family Federation for Worldpeace and the UPF
Everything is still closed in Steinbach on Sundays and they just started selling liquor around 2 or 3 years ago. They actually got a Walmart and it's closed Sundays
Modern Mennonites are more boring than Baptists generally.
There is a very wonderful and encouraging breakout evangelical movement happening among the Amish in recent times. It is set to renew the extraordinary witness the anabaptists had back in central Europe back in the 1500’s. It is just a small remnant at present but growing. See this video, which is one of four. #2 A renewed Amish community. https://youtu.be/SgekY-96CYo
Now this is how you do immigration! Not the irate crazy shit we are doing today to bring in the Trajan horse and feed it too!
Pretty old. Mennonites are in trouble today as they have become so generic they simply appear evangelical. 20 year old video.
Yes even in the Mennonite churches, you can be who you want to be. The ultimate form of rebellion, telling God that he made you wrong, in satan's church, gender identity is whatever you make it...
It may seem bizarre to put the words “Mennonites” and “Drugs” in the same sentence, but for years some members of the God-fearing religious community has been smuggling narcotics from Mexico into the United States and Canada
