Or did you come into the community after you completed your education and find favor with one of the young Amish Gentlemen and conform to their ways and get married?

I wasn't raised Amish. I just knew that this was the most holy way to go. When my husband saw that he would get home-cooked meals all the time, he thought it was a good idea too. Actually I am a terribly confused person, trying to fit in. But I never tell anybody that because then they wouldn't want to be holy like me. :)

Really I am just a just ficticious person having fun. :D

There is no plan of salvation in the Amish Community Church, is there? If not, how can you claim to be Holy, you're just good. I don't even think they pray, am I correct?

Dost thou believe that Emma is a real person?! :winkgrin

It's all a FARCE sister, If she were real I would not have said she wasn't Holy either, that's not my call to make, but I have read lots of things about Amish people. It would be really neat to know one personally. Of course one would not be allowed to use this evil one eyed monster. LOL

You bumped it and we're all looking at it.

Maybe you need to bump yours, too.

Why hello, Timotheous. Imagine my shock and surprise that when I read todays postings, there was my name "EMMA" right there on the first page. I have not posted in a long time as I am very busy, but, not too busy to say hello to my friends and loyal fans, of which, I know you are one.

Now, I must say, Timotheous that competition is not becoming. It is certainly not a good nor godly thing to be thinking when it comes to spiritual threads such as these but I am glad that you brought the subject up so my horse can continue to outrun yours, so to speak. Emma's Holy Answers must certainly be more spiritual and holy than anything that could be thought up by certain which shall not be named and not to be taken in any offense whatsoever, but I speak the truth in love, of course, for the benefit of all who read.

I am certain that there are some, who, seeing the light, will certainly give up the worldly things like cars and watches and suchlike. Would that there were two of me, to sacrifice my time on the saving of souls and not just the rearing of fleshly children.

I would like to add that it is hard for me to understand why certain people are saying AFF has become more worldly. More worldly than what, I may ask? I think it is bizarre that people think they are more holy than others when both drive cars, both have electricity and so much is no different from the other. Separate yourselves in truth! THEN, you can say AFF is worldly. To me, there is no difference between the wedding ring wearing and the necklace wearing. They are ALL jewelry. No difference between the cut hair and uncut hair with no covering....neither is covered. No difference between the red wearer and the make-up wearer. Save yourselves from this untoward generation. (I have no idea what untoward means, but it's Bible!!)

Hey, guess what! We had a three-hour power failure a few weeks ago. We were that much holier, at least for a while! Thought you'd be pleased to hear that, Emma. :)

I'm glad you're back, Emma, as I have a question.

Our (electric) dryer broke down, last November. We used clothes-line outside, for a couple of months. Sadly, we bought a new dryer a few weeks ago. But my question is this: do I get any holiness credit for the months that we used the clothes-line? Or was that all washed away (pun intended) when we stopped?

Say three Hail Maytags and call me in the morning.

Hello, Timmy. Sorry, it has been a while since I have been online. I have been very busy with my 12 children.

You did get some holiness credit. However, it was indeed all WASHED away when you bought the dryer. You are completely backslidden re:clothesline holiness. Unless the dryer was bought by your wife. Then you are only at fault for not leading her correctly.

Oh, that sounds awfully Catholic. And kinda trinitarian.

Thanks, Emma. It was indeed my wife who bought the dryer. I'll work on my leadership skills. ;)

Yes, those Jezebel women will set you back, especially when they go lusting after dryers and such. I will pray for you that your leadership will become more efficient. Of course, you can't help it when you have a brazen usurper living with you.

"Emma" was a spoof account designed to mock or perhaps even malign ultra-conservative holiness standards.

Almost like “Slapastolic,’” I assume.

Thanks.
