    This is really a question for those of you who are Mennonites, Hutterites or similar Anabaptist persuasion: given that Menno Simons basically adopted Melchior Hoffman's Christology, can it be said that Mennonites are really Trinitarian in belief?

    I don't have an answer to that but boy oh boy do they have great strawberries and friend chicken mmmm mmmm good!!!!!!

    though considering that they claim heavily to phil 2:5-6 as a basis for the argument that Jesus is God I would pretty much say that the mennonites around here at least are trinitarian in belief and practice. And since they claim to be direct decendants of the early dutch ana-baptizers who carried the same belief I would say that they are such. Though I leave their belief of the heavenly flesh (that is where they believe that Jesus was both fully God and fully fleshly man BUT that humanity did not come from Mary) open for discussion and study. Menno did have one or two very awkward beliefs trying to psychologize Jesus Christ.
