ANNA KHKIDKR IM BOURN After thn Revolution and after wo had miido a final adjustment with Great Britain in tho War of 1812, tho country began to dovolop, to take on now lifo. In tho church tho Sunday school, direct study of God's Word (or all, breaking tho shackles of undue human authority In catechetical Instruction, domnnding direct touch with God's thoughts on an equal footing for all. Brothrentsm war, gaining tho. victory of self-assertion. A necessary accompaniment of this freo access to God's Word, without any man's views road In, was the church paper, an open foru,m of freo discussion, a toleration for the other man's view. It wns never in- .t tended by the Creator that should live nnto himself, aM Si can stand faultless In the he has duly considered the tl of his fellows. Brethsenlsm born in Germany, but had b« ed out in Its entirety. *Tha nlte with his detestation for IfifaBt baptism and the Quaker KrttK.Mi^ Inner light were essential aeeolfi* panlments of this Brethrenteftfj Ilt8" purest religion that ever entfcfed, Pennsylvania, God'a holy of fioli&f dtt ' the American continent, in othef T words, it was the Lamb standing M Mt. Zion. But strange to say, these! people got their eyes off the Laffitt and began to put their religion ill their customs, their dress, etc. And stranger still, the Brethren evolved from the most enlightened Pfotfctt* antism of Germany, borrowed Quaker and Mennonite customs and lodged their religion therein. Rut why all this in anlntroductlBO to a sketch of Anna Kreider Irnbo- den? Because even among the Men* nonltes there was a life that would not. be denied participation in the development of this, their beloved country, their divine inheritance. And rather than be denied that right they affiliated with or helped organ' Ize churches where they could have it. But place not all the blame on the Mennonite; nay, nor the chief blame, on the Mennonite himself, tor in Switzerland, tho church, and not tho Roman Church either, stirred up the civil authority to persecute the Mennonito, even unto death. Little wonder that you cannot persuade him that the Christian has part In civil rule, yea, that civil rule belongs to him alone, and that no one bat a Christian has a right to sit ofl thd seat ot any civil authority, that JesUB Christ is King of kings and Lord of lords. In short, the Mennonite Krel- dors married the Lutheran Imbo- dons, and we aro told they got along peaceably together.
