Should Christians And Muslims Live Like Amish?

Amish folks don't use cars, phones, have tv or use anything modern, in some case even electricity refridgerators or stoves, definetely no ac.

They believe in the simple life, hard work, family and helping your neighbours. Divorce is basically unheard of, and everyone goes to church.

Maybe if Christians and Mu$lims live this simple live we would never hear of Divorce, we'll have a higher percentage of children doing better in school, no gangs, kids corrupted by TV instead of spendng time reading the Bible etc.

@poster youv'e spoken well . but relegion has been turned upside down. all we are after now is money.u will see pastors going to a harbalist for a supernatural power so as to perform miracle in his church. alpha doing concortion and all sort. Now i beleif that the end time is not far from now,b'cos God has described all this phonomenone in his holy books as sign of the end time.We will all be surprise if we see most of our relegious leader in hell fire when that day comes. Oh God ! forgive me before i DIE (amen)

Am asking you to join the in-crowd of muslim women, in the nearest masjid near you. Where do you live in the city? I will recommend a masjid; buggiedown bronx, or crockling/with a tree growing in it or queen. Maybe mahahiin; you know we do it. I am thinking staten island. Right?

There is a scripture in the Bible Corinthians 11:3-10.(see below)  I myself always wonder why the churches don't enforce this Bible teaching)Another thing this demonstrate the obvious fact that the head cover was not introduced by Islam, but rather that this requirement has been in place for thousands of years (Paul's letter).

This is also fact that that Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad were all prophets of the same God and that they each carried the same basic message.

Peace

3But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

4Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head.

5But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.

6For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.

7For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

8For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man.

9Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.

10For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.[i][/i]

@Olrotimi:

Me think Olrotimi dey live under a Rock. Maybe under Olumo Rock! Which western gadget can you name that there is no allowance, in special circumstances can not be unsed by the muslims? The Idea of Video, TV, etc can be drawn from Qur'an and or Sunnah.

And the African, by an large have traditionally some forms of pants that are roomy, loose fitted, yet show the ankles. Yoruba's Kembe, and the old buba and sokotoo combination are two examples. But you fail to notice that the women clothings are supposed to cover, rather than expose the ankle!

@ Karma:

1 Corinthians Chapter 7 verse 10-11.

All i am saying is that if we live a simple life like the Amish, I think plenty christians and Mu$lims would stay together. You see one of the problem I see causing divorce among Christians/muslims is not respecting their culture. I've seen folks from my country (especially women) who come to America and start behaving "badly" or as they say in America "girlz gone wild"

@ Davidlan, Thanks for the laugh. Honestly, I live a plain and simple life.

Gone to bed. Good night and God Blessings to all

No, I am not kidding you.  Just think about it. The Amish lifestyle is not about rejecting technology. It is about devotion to God and family and leading a life of humility, and rejecting those aspects of the outside world that they feel would interfere or destroy that devotion.

can you the same thing about Christians and Mu$lims in general?
