An Amish girl’s reaction to depraved western culture
To say that I view the West as immoral and depraved falls short. The West has become wicked in the extreme, depraved in the extreme! It is totally outside my mind. It is sick! I am shocked and appalled every day by its godlessness. The West is headed for eternal damnation! I am absolutely serious about that. I live in a society which is calling good everything which I instinctively, intuitively, down in the very center and core of my being, know is evil; and it is calling evil everything which I instinctively, intuitively, down in the very core of my being, know is good. It is a society in which all the people in positions of power (in government, mass media, educational system, etc.) are unanimously dead against everything I am, everything I have ever been, everything I believe in. It is a society in which school children, starting in the first years of school, are being indoctrinated in high wickedness and gross immorality in the name of tolerance training and sex education. Its lack of any fear of God is astounding. It is openly, brashly, brazenly wicked.
Today I have been looking at some YouTube videos on the Amish. I am not Amish, yet in regard to values and outlooks, I think I have more in common with the Amish than any other religion. I think their outlooks and values (with their emphasis on modesty, moral purity, decency, abstinence from alcohol, hard work, separation from the world, etc.) are closer to my own than those of any other religion. The women dress modestly and don’t wear jewelry. Things like this impress me greatly. How a woman dresses speaks a world about her. I am sure I wouldn’t agree with many of the Amish rules (such as prohibitions against using electricity and modern conveniences) but I think their simple, plain manner of living in the country is the healthiest, best way to live. I would support their way of isolating themselves from the rest of society. This world is so wicked that you must separate yourself from it to avoid becoming contaminated.
The Amish girl Leah Miller in the following National Geographic YouTube video who expresses personal qualms to so many things that she sees on a month stay in Great Britain is my kind of person. I am impressed by her. She is just the kind of person I would want for a wife. How very different she is from the British culture that she is introduced to! She is a decent, good, God-fearing person. She is a Christian. This is all reflected in her feelings and reactions. See the video:
