Jacob Thomasz, a member of the Waterlander Mennonites, probably at Amsterdam, was opposed to any kind of confession in the Mennonite church. For this reason he attacked Hans de Ries, who together with Lubbert Gerritsz had drawn up a confession in 1610. In Vriendelijcke Aenspraeck (1613) Thomasz charged de Ries and some of his friends, e.g., Yeme de Ringh, with tyrannizing the church. On 26-28 March 1613, Thomasz had to answer before the church board of Amsterdam for his disloyal conduct. The outcome is not known.
