Amish - More Than Just a Lifestyle

Amish - More Than Just a Lifestyle

While some sects of Amish are less conservative than others, generally, their hope of eternal life is largely based on their loyalty in keeping the rules and traditions passed down by their forefathers.

You are probably wondering why the forefathers saw a need to establish rules and regulations at all. That is really a good question!

Since they believe their lifestyle will affect their "hope" of Heaven, their church leaders sought to appease God by shunning "worldliness" and living by specific guidelines of which they assumed God would approve.
