    And yet Menno did not become a Lutheran; he developed his own doctrine of the Lord's Supper. The district of Bern, which owns the castle, would like to sell it for one symbolic Swiss franc. He took a day off while we explored Amsterdam on foot, engaging with a history many of us knew little about — the wealthy, urban, cultured Dutch Anabaptists. Paul Veraguth, left, is a Swiss Reformed pastor who visited U. That was prevented from happening by the Anabaptist policy of congregational autonomy, by the fierce persecution which made Anabaptism become an underground movement, and by geographical barriers. The pacifist Anabaptists in the Netherlands and northern Germany rallied under the leadership of the former priest Menno Simons and his associate Dirk Philips.

    On the obstinate ones it is necessary to inflict serious punishment. Luther felt that there were not enough real believers to form a church. It was the proclamation of the Word of God which was to occupy the preacher. Consequently a deputation of brethren called on Menno and pleaded with him to accept the leadership of the brotherhood. The holy life is the significant earmark of true Christianity. Henry Bullinger, Zwingli's successor in Zurich, said that just as the Old Testament sign of the Covenant circumcision was performed on infants, so also the New Testament sign of the Covenant baptism shall be performed on infants.

    But by that time, two years after the forming of the first congregation, the movement had spread hundreds of miles beyond its starting point through a unique missionary zeal. Its sources were in the groups of dissenters before the Reformation called the "Brethren. It was also a suffering church, not a ruling political body which punished heresy with the power of the state. Those that followed Ammon were later called Amish and those that did not follow him were called Mennonites. They mostly held to a soteriology that resembled Protestantism, with an emphasis on the reality of free will and the necessity of good works to accompany faith. They survived ultimately only by removal to the Ukraine and from there to America.
