Why I Love the Anabaptists

They believed in:

  • serving instead of ruling
  • biblical authority instead of ecclesiastical tradition
  • brotherhood instead of hierarchy
  • the towel instead of the sword
  • the headship of Christ instead of that of any pastor
  • the church as a living organism rather than as a human institution
  • the reign of God instead of a political kingdom
  • the power of suffering instead of the cult of power
Michael Sattler, Anabaptist martyr.
