Mennonites are a Protestant evangelical religious group, which originated in Switzerland and the Netherlands at the time of the Protestant Reformation.門諾教派是基督教福音派宗教組織,起源於瑞士和荷蘭舉行的時候,新教改革。


Mennonites are divided into a number of separate bodies, some of them more conservative and withdrawn from modern society than others; but they hold in common the ideal of a religious community based on New Testament models and imbued with the spirit of the Sermon on the Mount.門諾教派都分為若干個獨立的機構,他們中的一些人更保守和退出現代社會比其他人,但他們持有共同的理想,是一個宗教以社區為基礎對新約聖經的模式和充滿精神的山上寶訓。 Most of the principal tenets of the Mennonites are found in a confession of faith promulgated at Dordrecht, the Netherlands, in 1632.大部分的主要原則的門諾教派是指一個認罪的信仰頒布了多德雷赫特,荷蘭, 1632年。 The Bible as interpreted by the individual conscience is regarded as the sole authority on doctrinal matters, and no powers of mediation between an individual and God are conceded to the ministry.聖經的詮釋,是由個人的良知被視為是唯一有權對教義事宜,並沒有權力之間進行調解個人與神是不能讓步,以財政部。 Baptism is administered only on the profession of faith; infant baptism is rejected.洗禮管理不僅是對專業的信念,嬰兒的洗禮,予以駁回。 The Lord's Supper (see Eucharist) is celebrated, although not as a sacrament, and the rite of foot washing is sometimes observed in connection with it.主的晚餐(見聖體聖事) ,是慶祝了,雖然不是作為一個聖餐,並成年禮的腳洗,有時觀察結合。

Mennonites were among the first to espouse the principle of separation of church and state and to condemn slavery.門諾教派的第一批國家之一擁護分立的原則,教會與國家,並譴責奴隸制。 They have traditionally obeyed the civil laws, but many refuse to bear arms or to support violence in any form (see Pacifism), to take judicial oaths, and to hold public office.他們歷來服從了民事法律的,但很多人不攜帶武器或支持任何形式的暴力行為(見和平主義) ,以接替司法宣誓,並擔任公職。 The more conservative Mennonite groups are distinguished by plain living and simplicity of dress.較為保守的基督教門諾集團是由傑出的艱苦樸素和簡潔的禮服。


The Mennonites emerged in Switzerland in the 1520s as radical Protestants who went beyond the positions held by the Swiss reformer Huldreich Zwingli. They broke with him over the issue of infant baptism, and so were called Anabaptists, or "rebaptizers." Because these Swiss Brethren rejected the concept of a state church and refused to sanction war or to accept military service, they were regarded as subversive and were persecuted.該門諾教派出現在瑞士,在1520年代由於激進新教徒,他們超越了陣地舉行,由瑞士改革者huldreich zwingli , 他們打破了他的問題,嬰兒的洗禮,因此,被稱為anabaptists ,或" rebaptizers " ,因為這些瑞士兄弟拒絕概念的國家教會,並拒絕制裁戰爭或接受兵役,他們被視為顛覆,並遭到迫害。

A parallel movement emerged at about the same time in the Netherlands, led by Menno Simons, from whom the name Mennonite is derived.一個平行運動出現在大約同一時間,在荷蘭,帶領緬諾西蒙斯,從誰的名字,是基督教門諾會得出的。 Educated for the priesthood and ordained in 1524, Menno Simons gradually moved to a radical position, until by 1537 he was preaching believer's baptism and nonresistance.學歷為神職人員,並受戒,在1524年,緬諾西蒙斯逐漸轉移到了一個激進立場,直到1537年,由他的說教信奉的洗禮和不抵抗。 As they did in Switzerland, Anabaptists in the Netherlands experienced years of persecution.像瑞士, anabaptists在荷蘭經歷了多年的迫害。 Similar groups sprang up in southern Germany and also in Austria, where they were led by Jakob Hutter and called Hutterites or Hutterian Brethren.類似團體興起,在德國南部,並在奧地利,他們將在那裡領導的雅各布胡特,並呼籲哈特萊特人hutterian謠言。

Mennonites are a large body of Anabaptist groups today, descendants of the Dutch and Swiss Anabaptists (the Swiss Brethren, as they came to be known) of the sixteenth century.門諾教派是一個大機構的anabaptist團體,今天的後裔,荷蘭和瑞士anabaptists (瑞士弟兄們,因為他們後來被稱為)的16世紀。 The basic doctrines of the original Swiss Anabaptists, as well as the Peace Wing of the Dutch Anabaptists, are reflected in the 1524 Programmatic Letters of Conrad Grebel; in the Seven Articles of Schleitheim, 1527; in the voluminous writings of Pilgram Marpeck (d. 1556); in the writings of Menno Simons and of Dirk Philips (Enchiridion or Handbook of the Christian Doctrine); in the Swiss Brethren hymn book, the Ausbund (1564); and in the huge Martyrs Mirror of 1660.基本教義的原始瑞士anabaptists ,以及為和平聯隊的荷蘭anabaptists ,反映在1524綱領性信件康拉德格列伯,在七篇文章的施萊特海姆時27分,在浩繁的著作pilgram marpeck (四1556 ) ;在著作緬諾西蒙斯和德克飛利浦( enchiridion或手冊中的基督教教義) ,在瑞士兄弟在聖歌書中, ausbund (第1564 ) ,而且在巨大的烈士的一面鏡子, 1660 。

The Swiss Brethren were the Free Church wing of the Zwinglian Reformation.瑞士兄弟分別是自由教會翼的zwinglian改造。 Initially the pioneer leaders such as Conrad Grebel and Felix Mantz had nothing but praise for Zwingli.最初的先驅領導人如康拉德格列伯和Felix mantz無關,但稱讚zwingli 。 But by the fall of 1523 they became increasingly uneasy about the tempo of the Reformation in Zurich, and particularly about Zwingli's practice of allowing the Great Council of the 200 to decide what Catholic forms of doctrine, piety, and practice were to be dropped.但秋季1523年,他們越來越感到不安節奏的改革,在蘇黎世,特別是關於zwingli的做法,容許大會的200決定什麼天主教形式的學說,虔誠和實踐被撤銷。 These young radicals felt that Zwingli was too lukewarm and slow in carrying out his strongly biblical vision for an evangelical Reformed Church in Zurich.這些年輕的激進派認為zwingli過於冷淡,並緩慢在履行他的強烈聖經的願景是一個福音教會改革後,在蘇黎世。 But they did nothing until they were ordered to have their infants baptized and forbidden to conduct any more Bible study sessions.但他們沒有採取任何行動,直到他們被命令有其嬰兒受洗,並禁止進行任何更多的聖經學習班。 It was then that they met, and after earnest prayer ventured to inaugurate believer's baptism and to commission each other to go out as preachers and evangelists.這是當時說,他們會晤,並經過認真禱告誰敢在開幕信奉的洗禮,並委託對方走出去,因為傳教士和傳道士。 The date of organization of this Swiss Free Church was January 21, 1525.日起組織了這次瑞士自由教會是1525年1月21日。

At this organization meeting the three strongest leaders were Conrad Grebel, who died in 1526; Felix Mantz, who died as a martyr early in 1527; and George Blaurock, who was severely beaten and banished from Zurich in 1527, only to be burned to death in the Tirol in 1529.在這個組織會議的三個最強的領袖康拉德格列伯,死於1526年;菲利克斯mantz ,死於成為烈士早在1527年和喬治blaurock ,那些被嚴重毆打和被流放到蘇黎世,在1527年中,只有被燒死在查看地圖1529年。 After the original leaders were off the scene, the mantle of leadership fell upon a former Benedictine monk of South Germany named Michael Sattler.經過原領導人小康現場後,地幔的領導下跌後,原本篤會僧侶的德國南部任命Michael增多。 It was Sattler who helped the scattered and sometimes differing Swiss Brethren to settle upon what was a biblical faith and way of life.這是美國海軍陸戰隊的人,幫助這些分散的,有時是不同的瑞士弟兄定居後,什麼是聖經的信仰和生活方式。 This was realized at a village in Schaffhausen called Schleitheim in 1527.這是認識上的一個村莊在Schaffhausen所謂施萊特海姆在1527年。 Seven articles were worked over and finally adopted unanimously by the "brethren and sisters" who were present.七篇文章被工作,並最後一致通過了"兄弟姐妹"誰出席了會議。 These seven articles may be summarized thus:這七條可概括為:

(1) Baptism is to be given to people who have repented and believed on Christ, who manifest a new way of life, who "walk in the resurrection," and who actually request baptism. ( 1 )的洗禮,是考慮到人的懺悔,並相信基督,他們表現出一種新的生活方式,那些"走在復活" ,究竟是誰要求的洗禮。 (Infants and children are considered saved without ceremony, but infants are often "dedicated.") (嬰兒和兒童被認為是保存儀式,但嬰幼兒往往以"專用" ) 。

(2) Before the breaking of bread (the Lord's Supper), special effort shall be made to reclaim from any form of sin any brothers or sisters who may have strayed from Christ's way of love, holiness, and obedience. ( 2 ) ,然後打破麵包(主的晚餐) ,特別的努力,應予以填平,以防任何形式的罪過任何兄弟或姐妹,他們可能已偏離了基督的方式愛,純潔,服從。 Those who are overtaken by sin should be twice warned privately, then publicly admonished before the congregation.那些超越了單應兩次警告,在私底下,然後公開告誡前聚集。 The rite of exclusion of impenitent sinners the Swiss Brethren called the ban.這項成年禮的排斥impenitent罪人瑞士弟兄所謂的禁令。

(3) The Lord's Supper is to be celebrated by those who have been united into the body of Christ by baptism.

(5) Every congregation of true Christians needs a shepherd. ( 5 )每名會眾的真正的基督徒需要有一個牧羊人。 The shepherd (or pastor) shall meet NT qualifications, "the rule of Paul."牧羊人(或牧師)必須符合新台幣資格, "香港的法治保羅" 。 He is to read God's Word, exhort, teach, warn, admonish, discipline or ban in the congregation, properly preside in the congregational meetings and in the breaking of bread.他是讀神的話語,勸告,教導,警告,告誡,紀律處分或禁止在會眾,妥善主持,在堂會會議,並在破門的麵包。 If he has financial needs the congregation shall give him support.如果他有經濟需要的會眾應給他的支持。 Should he be led away to martyrdom, another pastor shall be ordained in "the same hour."如果他帶出去殉道,另一個牧師應受戒,在"同一時間" 。

(6) The section on being nonresistant suffers is entitled "The Sword." ( 6 )一節被nonresistant患有標題是"劍" 。 The sword is ordained of God "outside the perfection of Christ" (the church).劍受戒上帝"之外的完善的基督" (教會) 。 The only method the church has to deal with transgressors is the ban (exclusion).唯一的方法,教會,以應付transgressors是禁止(豁免) 。 Disciples of Christ must be utterly nonresistant.弟子基督必須完全nonresistant 。 They cannot use the sword to cope with the wicked or to defend the good.他們不能使用刀,以應付壞蛋或捍衛好的方向發展。 Nonresistant Christians cannot serve as magistrates; rather, they must react as Christ did: he refused when they wished to make him king. nonresistant基督徒不能充當裁判,而是他們必須作出反應,正如基督所做過的事:他拒絕的時候,他們希望使他國王。 Under no circumstances can Christians be other than Christlike.在任何情況下,基督信徒被其他較christlike 。

(7) Finally, by the word of Christ, Christians cannot swear any kind of oath.

In the covering letter accompanying the Seven Articles, Sattler acknowledges that some of the brothers had not fully understood God's will aright, but now they do.在採訪函所附的七篇文章,美國海軍陸戰隊承認,有些兄弟沒有充分理解上帝的意志的戒律,但現在他們做的。 All past mistakes are truly forgiven when believers offer prayer concerning their shortcomings and guilt; they have perfect standing "through the gracious forgiveness of God and through the blood of Jesus Christ."所有過去的錯誤,真正原諒的時候,信徒們禱告,提供有關他們的缺點和內疚,他們有完善常委會"透過慈悲寬恕的上帝,並通過血液循環中的耶穌基督" 。

In 1693 Jakob Ammann, a Swiss elder in Alsace, founded the most conservative wing of the Mennonites, the Amish.在1693年雅各布ammann ,瑞士一名老在阿爾薩斯,創立了最保守的右翼的門諾教派,阿米緒。

Down through the centuries the Mennonites have produced numerous confessions of faith, catechisms, printed sermons, and hymn books.歷經幾個世紀的門諾教派已經製作了大量的供述中的信念, catechisms ,印刷布道,並聖歌書籍。

Mennonites hold to the major doctrines of the Christian faith and feel free to confess the Apostles' Creed. They are dissatisfied, however, with the creed's moving directly from the birth of Christ to his atoning death. They feel that it is also important to study Christ's way of life, his beautiful example of love, obedience, and service. They cannot believe that seeking to be faithful to both the letter and the spirit of the NT is legalism, if such obedience is based on love for God and love for man. 門諾教派舉行向各大教義的基督教信仰和感覺免費招供使徒們的信條,他們也很不滿意,但是,隨著信仰的移動直接從耶穌的誕生,以他的atoning死刑,他們覺得這也是很重要的研究基督的生活方式,他的美麗的例子,愛,服從,服務等,他們可以不相信謀求互相忠實,無論是文字和精神的新台幣是法家,如果這種順從是基於對上帝的愛和愛文。 Indeed, Michael Sattler wrote a moving essay in 1527: Two Kinds of Obedience.事實上,邁克爾鮑威爾寫了一動雜文1527 : 2種服從。 They are (1) slavish obedience, which is legalism; it involves a low level of performance and produces proud "Pharisees."他們是: ( 1 )盲目服從,這是法家,它涉及到一個低層次的表現,並產生驕傲"法利賽" 。 (2) Filial obedience, which is based on love for God and can never do enough, for the love of Christ is so intense Mennonites see the will of God revealed in a preparatory but nonfinal way in the OT but fully and definitively in Christ and the NT. ( 2 )孝,這是基於對上帝的愛和永遠做不夠的,基督的愛是那麼激烈門諾教派見上帝的意志透露,在籌備,但nonfinal方式,在職能治療,但充分和明確,在基督和新台幣。

Violent suppression of the Mennonites practically led to their extermination in Germany.暴力鎮壓的門諾教派幾乎導致其滅絕在德國。 In Switzerland they survived chiefly in two areas, the Emme valley of Berne and the mountainous areas of the Jura.在瑞士,他們存活,主要在兩個方面, emme河谷伯爾尼和山區的( Jura 。 William I of the House of Orange brought toleration of a sort to the "Mennists" (the name coined by Countess Anna in Friesland in 1545 to designate the Peace Wing of the Dutch Anabaptists) of the Netherlands about 1575.威廉本人眾議院橙帶來的容忍是一種以" mennists " (名稱創造countess安娜在friesland於1545年劃定的和平聯隊的荷蘭anabaptists ) ,荷蘭約1575年。 The severe persecution of the Swiss Taufgesinnten, the Dutch Doopsgezinden, and the Frisian Mennists effectively silenced their evangelistic and mission concerns for several centuries, but these were revived slowly in the nineteenth century, first in Europe and then in North America.嚴重迫害的瑞士taufgesinnten ,荷蘭人doopsgezinden ,弗里斯蘭mennists有效地壓制他們的福音和使命感,關注的幾百年了,但這些都慢慢復甦,在19世紀,首先是在歐洲,然後在北美。 Mennonite missions have been most successful in Africa, Indonesia, and in India, and have started in Latin America.門諾派代表團一直最為成功的,在非洲,印度尼西亞,而在印度,並已開始在拉丁美洲。
