Ads Everywhere! Do you hate ads as much as I do? I've found a great extension to block ads from your computer: Adblock It's free, but the guy who developed it takes donations...if you love it as much as I do, you might consider sending him a few bucks.

The Amish believe in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. They usually take the Bible literally. For example, James 1:27 says to "keep oneself unspotted from the world," so they stay away from cars, TVs, make-up, electricity and phones. (They do use generators). Some communities are more strict than others. If one of them participates in “worldly” things, they are often shunned by their own.

No tractors or combines....
Even though they believe in Jesus as our salvation, they also believe good works gets them closer to God, and if the good in their lives outweighs the bad, they’ll make it to heaven. They are good, simple, hard-working people, and very forgiving people. I wish they knew a little bit more about grace. They believe in “Amish as a lifestyle” rather than a religion, and they focus a lot on family and home.
