I often link to Mennonite articles because of their sound peace teachings. Whatever can be gleaned from their peace teachings is very good. Unfortunately it doesn’t end there because the Mennonite church has fallen into serious deception in many other areas (especially their unequal ecumenical yoking with the Roman Catholic church) and we need to be aware of that.
Also, I am sad to have to say that some Mennonite churches have also strayed from the biblical doctrine of “peace.” Not all Mennonite Churches “are created equal.” We visited a Mennonite church several years ago specifically because of the Mennonite peace teachings. The church was very much like a Pentecostal Church. In fact if they didn’t identify themselves as Mennonites I would have thought the church was Pentecostal. We found out after the service that one of the young congregants recently left for duty in the military. The pastor told us they had a special prayer meeting for the young man before he left. I asked about the historic peace teachings in the church. The pastor told me that the Holy Spirit would minister to the young man. I was very disappointed and very surprised to hear him say that. We know the Holy Spirit ministers, but He ministers truth through God’s Word. What ever happened to teaching the Word of God to people? So even in the area of “peace” some Mennonite Churches have gone astray.
Remember the song “WHERE COULD I GO BUT TO THE LORD?” It’s tough out there folks.
