John 13:1–17 But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people.
Corinthians 5:11-1 You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.' But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you. Matthew 5:38-42 Little Children Scholars Young Folks Adults Old Folks Rumspringa “The word education as used in American society is regarded with suspicion by most Amish people. To them it signifies ego advancement, independence, and cutting the ties that bind one to the community of faith and work. For almost a half century the Amish expressed their opposition to forced attendance in high school, an education they said would destroy their communities... The role of the public school system is to facilitate uniformity and to provide preparation for those seeking to participate in mainstream American culture.” John A. Hostetler
