Trouble in Amish Paradise

Last night I found this video about an Amish family who began questioning their Amish roots steeped in traditions.

Turns out that the Amish do not read the bible for themselves because their tradition allows them to only have a bible in German which most of them don't even understand anymore. But this Amish man began questioning the traditions after reading the Bible in English. It's amazing how God is setting this man free from the rules of the sect he belongs to.

I saw some similarities between the Amish and Alamo's. The Alamos might as well have their bibles in German as well because they've allowed so much other foreign teachings (Alamo's false prophesies and heresies, Apocrypha,  Pentecostal heresies and false testimonies like "A divine Revelation of Hell" by Mary Baxter) to come in and obscure the Word of God that it's weakened the Word of God in their souls and watered it down with all the extra unbiblical teachings and false prophecies. It's crystal clear that Alamo's teachings have departed from Biblical Christianity. There's not just a little leaven in Alamo's camp.

But maybe a current Alamo member will watch this and be encouraged in this Amish person's testimony and remember their first love. Who is Christ who loved them first and taught them what love is. And maybe they could be reminded about the simplicity there is in Christ Jesus. Remember the light burden and that easy yoke which has since become the most horrible burden? Throw off that yoke of bondage to Alamo Ministries and turn to God with all your heart. I know God will help you as He has helped me.
