My name is Anah. I am 13 and I’ve lived in the Community ever since I was born. I am being raised by wonderful parents in an environment of love. My parents are raising me according to the Proverbs and according to the Word of God. In the Community our parents do discipline (love) us in obedience to Proverbs 19:18, “Discipline your child while there is hope, and do not set your heart on his destruction.” Our parents do not abuse us.
When I woke up on September 5, 2013, the first thing I heard was that all the children were taken from our communities in Germany and put into foster homes. I was shocked! How could a government be so hardhearted as to come and abuse children by taking them away from their parents, with an accusation that they were abused by their parents?
I want to pose a question. Why is it that Germany, a so-called “Christian Nation,” raids peoples’ homes for obeying the Word of God? It is proof that the government there is calling evil good and good, evil. It is so sad that a government would outlaw parents loving (disciplining) their children. The Word of God says that an undisciplined child brings shame to his mother.
The world today is full of unloved, undisciplined children. The children of the Twelve Tribes are loved and disciplined, we are not abused. I am thankful for the way my parents are raising me!
In the case of the children being taken from their parents, the media has fabricated all manner of evil accusations against us. One day every man will appear before the One True Judge of this earth and give an account of everything he has done in his life, and this will determine where he will spend eternity. We have a God, and our God is real, and He will judge every man according to His deeds! Will He not judge those who have caused the hurt and damage and pain in separating many, many families from each other?
I’m thankful that I am a disciplined child, so that I can have the confidence to stand before that Judge some day.
