The Amish, yes, I said it, the Amish. I was watching YouTube video from the Red Elephants (in which I don't endorse him/his group) but he had a good video about the rise of the Amish communities in the country. This one group of deeply religious people, might one day, take America back to a Jesus center culture. Now, I'm talking about a Jesus center culture. Not Salvationally. Salvationally speaking, I do have some issues with the Amish's theology. Many of them adopt a works based Salvation. Of course there are those who have a correct understanding of Salvation but still live an Amish lifestyle. I'm sure that there are a bunch of Amish that I will see in Heaven worshiping Jesus. I also am sure that a bunch of Amish are going to hell thinking that they are saved through their work based Salvation. Like in any Christian group, there are unbelievers and true believers. In my perspective of Christianity, which is a Baptist perspective, there are going to be a bunch of Baptists that are going to hell and a bunch of Baptists going to heaven. Anyways, the Amish might actually keep America a Jesus center culture. Meaning, they are the group that are having kids from right to left. The ratio of the Amish leaving the Amish is low, because many of them have an opportunity to ditch the church when they are adults but if they leave, they can't go back and see their families. Not all Amish families and churches are like that but many of them do, in which I would say some of these Amish communities are cult like. Some of them are cults and some of them aren't. But what is clear, is that these Amish families are growing much faster than the typical American family/church, especially the evangelical church (in which it is in shambles). The evangelical church in America are having 2 kids and that only replacement numbers. As a single guy writing this blog post, I hope to one day have a bunch of kids, it may not be 7 kids but I would like to have at least 4 kids (preferably as much as possible) but I doubt that I can find a Christian lady that is willing to raise 6 plus kids. Because that is 6 plus Jesus Freaks living out in the world and if they each have 4 to 6 kids each, then well, that number of Jesus Freaks will just grow over the years. Now, I'm not going to force my kids to be Jesus Freaks but I would do what I can to prepare and teach them about Christianity and hope and pray that they will become believers in Jesus Christ and live for Him Alone.
