MUNITY THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 6, 2014 Pa e 5 t, ;C~"..m.- ~ ..... -,~ e.. ~;;;;~ ~ ~ ~ .*4 ,,~ . ' , t ~, ~; . : ,,iYour ecent rtlcle about nine ex-Hutterites .... p rorr pted a,r,esp0nse from us due to false nile- . gaU0ns, M.yo writing. It is obvious, sir, you do ., u erst d or, kr.a. ow our hearts in writing the .,book and the .rr_xessage it contains. In writing our storieslwe expound upon plain facts of truth with- out hearsay or gossip. The message in the booksis clear, that those who so desire can find li6 arid'freed0m. In our book, "Hutterites" Our Sfdr To Frdedorri; We didn't place blame on the fi-ierids ffd rel itives we left behind. We under- sL nd th /t6 en tlie' leaders themselves are vic- tims of a comii t System, just as we were. This m,wti we dldn t name individuals when we -Otd biir first'book. The truth spoken in love may hurt and may :..toffehd, but: n the end it will bring healing. On ' ; theothe hand;;the lies and misconceptions that have been allowed to prevail concerning the re- . :qigious group known as Hutterites, are damag- ing'the spi ; soul, and body of countless indi- viduals. Since you have never lived as a Hutterite w canunderstand why your perspective of the Hutterites'is skewed. The Hutterites may have an'outward form of communal living and paci- fism but the Hutterite lifestyle has become, as scripture says, ?'This people honoureth me with their !ip.s,,but their heart is far from me." (Mark j7:6) ........ ,,,,You claim that we are incorrectly using the Declaratiort.ofIndependence to support the rights . ,and freedoms of individuals. Is it wrong to quote -a.docaxment.that states the true source of an in- -. dividual's right.to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? Those involved in writing the letter George, derstood these rights didn't issues to originate from a monarchy but from "our Cre- ator". The purpose of the government, as un- derstood by our forefathers, is to ensure these God-given freedoms continue to exist This is in harmony with Romans 13, that the govern- ment is a minister of God to punish the wicked and protect the righteous. To view our American rights as purely sec- ular, as you seem to do, is the reason for the fail- ure to consistently uphold these rights in this na- tion. Thomas Jefferson wrote, "God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have re- moved their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my coun- try when I reflect that God is just; that His jus- tice cannot sleep forever." If you, sir, would have ever had these basic rights refused or withheld you might understand in your spirit that the laws of freedom and liberty originate from God and are the highest law of the land. tt is in every na- tion's best interest to follow the divine law clear- ly set forth in the scriptures. We wrote more in- depth about the role of church and government in our second book that was just released, "Since We Told The Troth". This causes us to wonder if you ever read the second book before writing accusations against us. It always be- hooves us to fully research a matter before mak- ing absolute statements. If you had contacted us we would have been happy to do an interview as we have been regularly interviewed by me- dia outlets in both the United States and Cana- da concerning our two books. re nseto, O _-_._ _-_-- The views you expressed in your letter about the role of the church and government surprised us, as we had recently read another of your ar- ticles that was very insightful concerning the churches providing the welfare that is needed in society. We couldn't agree with you more, as the church and community would then also provide the accountability for the individual that the gov- emment is unable to provide. In our own personal lives, after we left the Hutterite religious system with very little, we experienced how the church in Jesus Christ functions in fulfilling their divine role. They provided not only for our physical needs but the emotional and spiritual help we so desperately needed. This has motivated us to now also reach out to others with the same love and share those principles that can guide a commu- nity and nation towards prosperity. As for your argument that we should attempt to settle our differences privately: We have done due diligence in repeated attempts to resolve these matters on a personal level with Hutterite lead- ership but have been refused as brethren. So now, in our two books, "Hutterites" and "Since We Told The Truth", we speak the truth very bold- ly so people can be set free from the fear and op- pression. This is our heart in writing our books and it is written in love to see people set free and become all they are called to be. -Signed "The Nine'Darlene Waldner, Sh- eryl Waldner, Cindy Waldner, Karen Wold- net, Jason Waldner, JunTa Walner, Titus Waldner, Glenda Maendel and Rodney Wald- ner. food benefits away from others (which they Softie think it is too difficult to apply for SNAP, andothe don't even know the program exlst .
