- Belief as a way of life.
One may also ask, what Bible do the Amish use? In Old Order Amish services, scripture is either read or recited from the German translation of Martin Luther. Worship is followed by lunch and socializing. Church services are conducted in a mixture of Standard German (or 'Bible Dutch') and Pennsylvania German.
Also asked, what do the Amish believe happens after death?
Amish Beliefs on Death They are immediately with God in the afterlife. Because of this, there is no praying for the deceased after they've passed. The Amish believe praying after death is a pointless practice since their judgment has already happened once they moved on. Instead, the focus is on the goodness of God.
Why do Amish not believe in electricity?
Because electricity comes from the grid, many Amish make their own electricity (generators, solar, wind, etc.) to supply power only for such things regarded as essential. Similarly, Amish don't buy insurance, don't contribute to social security, and don't accept social security benefits.
