[EAF disbanded in late 2001] Thank you for visiting Evangelical Anabaptist Fellowship. Here is what other guests have said. Due to spamming, no further guestbook entries are presently being accepted.

I appreciate your humble and complete assessment of Anabaptism, where it started and in some ways where it has diverted in modern contexts. My own life experiences with Jesus have served to stir a passion in my heart to reclaim the Spirit of the early Church which, in effect, was the passion of the early Anabaptist movement. Thanks for taking the time to process and spell out what God has stirred in your heart concerning these matters! To know God and to Make Him Known... Your Brother in Christ, Chris

Hmm. With 200 years of evangelical heritage and a non-Swiss/German name, why would I have called myself an Anabaptist if I hadn't seen something in Martyrs Mirror that I've rarely seen in conventional evangelicalism? Maybe many Mennonites do need to return the personal experience with God which their forefathers enjoyed four hundred years ago. My point is: so do North American evangelicals. Many of us simply replaced intellectual heresy with intellectual orthodoxy. It's got to become more than intellectual. Look at John Bunyan and John Wesley: because of their piety and doctrine, they would have been welcomed into almost any North American evangelical congregation - before they had been converted! We wouldn't have known the difference. But please understand that because of our different backgrounds, we will have different perspectives and goals, and I think I do understand where you are coming from. God bless you and guide you as the EAF brings its ministry to a close.

What a fine valedictory to your work of the EAF. Certainly the MC has gone farther and faster towards heterodoxy than we could have imagined. Would you keep the Church of the Brethren in prayer, as revival fires seem to be lighting. There are still many strongholds of the Enemy that remain, though. Christ's blessings to our faithful Mennonite friends!

I aqm researching an article "Congregationalists debt to Anabaptism: and why it was rightly denied; then, not now." Evangelical Anabaptism was given a 'bad press' in England, and nobody there wanted to acknowledge it. This attitude remains today. However, Congregationalism's greatest thinker, P T Forsyth, claims Anabaptism as the overlooked major contributror to Congregationalism, which is often classed, esp in Britain and US, as a Reformed denomination.
If anyone has any leads on the connection between the two, I would be greqatful to hear of it. I am aware of the MQR article repudiating influence of Anabaptism on Robert Browne.

The "Call to Reclaim" article on eaf.net seems to miss the point of Anabaptist teachings. I think "Jesus Christ alone, grace alone, faith alone" is hardly an Anabaptist statement, nor a statement Christ would have made. These "grace alone, faith alone" statements are not biblical words. Faith alone is used only by James ("Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone" 2:17), and then in a sense opposite to the writer use.

Salvation must inclufe repentance, new birth, discipleship, etc. statements Jesus made? And s biblivsl concept of grace?

I suggest some study justification by looking first at what Jesus taught, then look at Acts to understand the issues in the early, and lastly at Paul and the other epistles teachings. They might be surprised what they taught.

I would also encourage the reader to study my book, "Redemption Realized Through Christ." It builds a case for the biblical (and Anabaptist) teachings on redemption/justification.

It seems to me that the modern day church is far too concerned with using the worlds methods to prosper. The bible is very clear and thorough on how we should live and conduct ourselves. We proclaim the gospel - the same gospel that has been proclaimed for centuries - and people are free to accept or reject it.
What can 'post-modern' philosophies possibly have in comparison to the enduring word of God?

Your site is very good - I only wish there was a conservative christian church near me here in England!

I have been allowing the Lord to change my heart as he also changes my appearance and I wear a covering in obedience to the I Corinthians 11:2-16. My husband finds it difficult since he feels I've blown some scripture totally out of proportian, but I continue to strive and trust the Lord.

It appears to me, not having read Dennis Weaver's book, that like the heretics of old, Dennis has been castigated in the article I just read because his thoughts are (apparently) controversial.

If Dennis is incorrect, ultimately, his error in no way necessitates in my mind such an attack as what I have just read.

Well done, Herman Reitz. Revisionist Anabaptist Theology it is...Will we see Mennonite leaders distance themselves from this heresy? Perhaps we shouldn't hold our breath, as it appears Weaver's stance has already gained currency with some. If the Mennonite Church disappears from the radar screen,as he fears, Weaver himself may well be justified in taking some of the credit.

I would think it would be a waste of time to read Weaver's Anabaptist Theology in the Face of Postmodernity : A Proposal for the Third Millennium.

I don't know why reviewer Herman Reitz had to mention Weaver is a son-in-law of J. C. Wenger. Many would think the two have nothing in common.

What the Mennonite church needs to do is return to its biblical roots. To get an idea what these are take a look at bibleviews.com, and also at my four books. These books seek to build a biblical basis for the Anabaptist/Mennonite faith.

Grace and peace,


PS: Surely grace and peace is needed in the church today.

Why are all the good Anabaptist Mennonite churches up north? Nashville is such a mission field if anyone is interested. Everyone thinks they are a Christian here because of the prevailing doctrine of once saved always saved, which is in all the Baptist churches. Praise God He saw fit to show me the true Way. Should I go to a Church of Christ? Would this doctrine be "close enough" to my new found Anabaptist/Mennonite Arminian beliefs?

Excellent website.

I am a Roman Catholic, raised in the Episcopal Church with a Mennonite background several generations back on my father's side(Lancaster,PA).

It is surprising and sad that various anabaptist groups have been infected with the same moral relativism that has infiltrated the American Roman Catholic Church. I would never have even guessed at such a depressing development in our respective congregations thirty years ago!

It's long overdue for our laity to be made aware of the total orthodoxy existing in not only scriptural, but written patristic sources of the early Church.

Moral relativism is an age-old heresy that can be defeated by education and common sense - two areas that often seem to be mutually exclusive in society today!

God bless you and keep up the good work.

This looks to be a very interesting site, and I hope I'll have time to peruse it further sometime soon. I am conservative (in theology and practice) Anabaptist, but the complete lack of interest in being evangelical among some Anabaptists I know has disturbed me somewhat.
I was very interested to see the "signatures" of quite a few people I know in the guest book. You apparently have readers across the whole range of anabaptism.

I consider myself a conservative evangelical Anabaptist. That is why I differ with your views on the welcoming letter. I believe that we need to follow the Anabaptist tradition of humility (Mt 23:12). Acknowledging that we are to serve rather than judge(Jn 13:16, Lk 6:37), we can work together with other Christians who have come to different conclusions in their study of Scriptures. Yes, study of Scripture is important. I wish Barr would give Scriptural reasons for his views about Biblical authority. Looking to Scripture itself, we find that "reverence for the Scriptures" is not the way "into the glorious light of the kingdom of God." The real way is Jesus (Jn 3:16-21), who came to renew the ancient commandments to "love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind...love your neighbor as yourself" (Mt 22:37-40, Dt 6:5, Lv 19:18). Let us humbly follow God's commands.

A nice looking site. While I do not see things from your point of view, I affirm your willingness to openly dream about the possibilities for the Church, particularly Anabaptism.
As one of the signers of the Welcome Letter, I would like to add that the recent article on your Views Page completely misunderstands my reason for signing it (others' motivation too, I think, but I can only speak for myself).

By all means, the central theme of my theology is "reconciliation with a holy and just God." My beliefs are anything but postmodern.

We have models for restoration in the Scriptures. I am encouraged to know that there is a body of believers who are committed to finding out how those models are to be used for the perfection of the Saints. It is to no advantage to dismantle the mechanisms of deceit if we then fail to activate the provisions of the Truth. I hope we can do both.

I would encourage you to see that not all of the benificiaries of the anabaptist vision are now in the denominations and fellowships that are directly connected by history. There is a much broader subgroup within the Church that understands and stands with the renewing power of the anti-sacralism, Kingdom allegience, and the call to personal integrity that were so vividly demonstrated by the first anabaptists. I am part of a new church plant effort that is not part of any existing denomination, but we acknowledge a tremendous debt to and affinity for all of those that have and continue to stand for the truth of the Gospel, with the Anabaptists and their antecedants standing prominently in that category.

Appreciate the perspective of the EAF and the prophetic challenge to stay close to biblical anabaptist orthodoxy. I encourage you not to be a "single issue" voice (i.e. homosexuality) in regards to evangelicalism with the the GC-MC Community. Whatever you may think of the continuing dialogue within MC-GC and it's member congregations, you have yourself recognized that the creedal statements and resolutions are true to biblical anabaptism. Therefore, you are putting yourself in the position of judging how much and how long grace should be extended to members of fellowship that are in violation of confession of faith. That's a tenous position to put oneself - Pharisees and Sadducees of Christ's time chose the path of "enforcing the law" and Christ was very hard on them for it. I don't know "why the debate still goes on" but I do know that sitting in judgement and practising legalism is dangerous territory. I affirm the resolutions on human sexuality adopted by the MC/GC and pray that continued dialogue with congregations that are in violation of them can ultimately lead to restoration of those congregations aa members in good standing. As long as the dialogue continues in the presence of clear theological statements that affirm our biblical-anabaptism, what do we have to lose by extending the patience of grace rather than the hammer of legalistic orthodoxy? Christ was unwavering in biblical orthodoxy and generous (indeed lavish) in the grace of discipleship.

just wanted to sign up. i have been a member of providence mennonite for several years. we are members of the gc and i was wanting to know the truth about where they stand on the homosexuality issue. we have not heard much about the conference in our church for a while. we recently just went through a split because of the charismatic movement. our former pastor decided that the mennonite/anabaptist doctrine was not right. he just didn't like any doctrine. he was caught up in a very mystical relationship. he was a wonderful speaker and it is such a tragic thing when that movement can seep its way into the church. i personally see no end in sight to the movement. that is a scary thought. i would love to hear some thoughts on this movement. in Christ's love

I'm the webmaster (or whatever) of this site.

I posted the new "To The Point" article this morning. And discovered some problems with the option to send those articles to yourself or someone else. I got those fixed.

Then I decided to visit the guestbook and discovered a problem there!

This is a test to make sure *that* problem is resolved.

Blessings to all who visit and read here!

Love the site!
I became interested in Anabaptists while writing a paper for a Church History class in seminary. I've always identified with Anabaptists. After getting my MDiv and ordained, I even toyed with the idea of opening the first Charismatic Anabaptist Church.
This dream has yet to be realized. but is still in my heart and prayers.
I have visited Mennonite and Amish congregations in the NE Ohio area and have been received warmly. I have gotten many good ideas from these encounters and intend to continue to pursue them. I have looked into other congregations with Anabaptist heritages (ie. Brethern) but have found then somewhat liberal in theology and practice.
I am profoundly dismayed by the idea that homosexuality is even an issue in the Mennonite movement. The apostle Paul, not to mention Menno himself, would be appalled. I have grieved over the effect that an "open door policy" on divorce has had on the church. Now homosexuals. Admittedly, we are to treat homosexuals with love and by teaching and example lead them to renounce their sin and lead godly lives according to scripture. But how to do this without excluding them from hearing the teaching of the gospel or seeing true worship in a congregation is problematic. Does letting them attend say we are condoning their unbliblical behavior? Are we then afraid to preach from Romans 1 for fear of offending them? Being IN THE WORLD and affecting it without becoming OF THE WORLD. The historic Anabaptist congregations are characterized by their seperation from the world.
What does it mean to be an Evangelical Anabaptist????
Sorry, I got carried away preaching. :)
God Bless your work, I have bookmarked the site and hope you will send more info on membership in the EAF etc.
