AMISH Man Excommunicated for healing ministry!

Lapp received prayer and experienced an immediate healing. He went from a wheelchair to crutches to being completely restored physically. Word spread quickly throughout the Amish community, and people began coming to Lapp’s home day and night asking for prayer.

http://www.charismamag.com/cms/news/...es/0610081.php



With his talk of supernatural healings and events, Lapp seems more at home — at least theologically — in Pentecostal churches than among the Amish. But he is just the most extreme example of an evangelical influence creeping into the Old Order Amish community, according to a number of observers. The trend may be most evident here in Lancaster County, which, with 25,000 members, is one of the world’s largest Amish settlements.

When I first read the title I thought it read, "AMISH Man Executed for healing Ministry!"

Thanks Mark!

Churches have a way of squelching anything they view as outside their comfort zone don't they.

It would be interesting to see what the actual charges of dismissal were.

That would be a bit over the top!
