Confessions of a Pharisee: On Measuring Up to God’s Standards

Pharisee: To connect the dots. To connect the dots from point A, your filthy manner of life and your rebellion against God…
Host A: What are your sins, Miss Perfect?
Pharisee: … and conduct against the servants of God, to point B, the dead children.
Host A: I want to know what your sins are.
Pharisee: I’m not going to talk to you about any such thing. I don’t glory in my shame like you seem to want to do.
Host A: No, I just find this amazing that everyone else is a big sinner but you, and you admit to being a sinner.

So once you’ve established that you’re a sinner, you continue to condemn others because of their filthy manner of life, rebellion against God, and their conduct against the servants of God. Since she’s claiming the Amish were so sinful they deserved to have their daughters killed, let’s see how they stack up. The Amish lifestyle is one of simplicity. The Amish so thoughly believe in not being of the world, they go without many of the things that are common to us and the ‘Baptist’ Church. They might not hold with giving respect to the country, but only out of their reverence to God. They are not the rebellious sort. I must wonder who qualifies as a ‘servant of God’ or what sorts of things the Amish would have to do to cross them. It seems that the acusations of the Pharisee are false. Note that they don’t condemn the crime itself, the depraved murderer. He was only a tool used to punish the Amish for being more Biblically sound than the ‘Baptist’ Church.
