Much Different Than Modern Christianity!
Who is right: Modern Church or the Pilgirims? Whom did God Bless?
Pilgrims, World View,
This editor PLEADS with you to at least skim the FULL STORY of the Pilgrims. This story has been presented to hundreds & hundreds of ministers over the years and NOT ONE - had even a basic grasp of their full situation. This is a shame that is criminal against the Kingdom of God!
In terms so brief as to border on blasphemy we offer their testimony for Christ’s Cause and GOD’S HAND - holding, helping, leading, hiding, & sustaining through all adversities: their story.
A NewtonStein Narrative:
Had there been another chapter in the famous “Foxes Book of Martyrs”, the chronicles of nearly 800 deaths and terrible persecution of Christians in EUROPE, it would have been The Puritan-Pilgrims . In fact, two of the three founders who started the Puritans-as-SEPARATISTS movement in England - were slaughtered: the third fled into oblivion.
The residue of the Martyr’s Ministry formed “The Scrooby Congregation” of just over 100 members! They formed in secret, They met in secret. They lived according to the Bible in defiance of the Law. They defied the King & British Law in what they did do, and in what they did NOT do. They risked their jobs, homes, property, credentials, fines, whippings, bloodshed, imprisonment, and death - depending upon their degree of leadership, and the person in authority.
The new leaders ranged from the very young William Bradford, to quite elderly. The Puritan men not only risked themselves, but their spouses and even their children. Please note that all those of Scrooby who finally got to the New World - every single one of them including men, women & children - spent time in prison. Every single one of them were stripped of all property, goods & money. The chastity of the women & girls were ubiquitously violated by male authority.
You may be surprised to know that this singular Sect of Puritans - wrote the FIRST DEMOCRATIC Constitution, the FIRST CHRISTIAN Constitution, founded the FIRST ‘FREE COLONY‘- ‘NEW NATION’-‘INDEPENDENT NATION’ (whatever you wish to call it) in the New World. (Note that Jamestown was a British Colony, under jurisdiction & authority of England, located on their authorized property, etc.);
. . . which Pilgrim Nation was a proper Scriptural nation, a CONGREGATIONAL form of Government with Deacons, Elders & Bishop; with GOD’S LAW as the LAW of the LAND, where the School House-Church House-Court House-&-Town Hall were ALL the same building, and the Council of the Elders for each entity was the same Council; which Pilgrims evangelized Native Tribes, and carved out the MODEL Colony-Nation, for all colonies to follow.
This singular Sect of Puritans with such unbelievable spiritual achievement in the Kingdom of God, was NOT the largest denomination in Europe, NEITHER the largest denomination in England, NOR the largest religious organization OR largest association of ministers. This Sect was NOT the largest Church congregation in England, OR even one of the largest. In fact, the “Scrooby Congregation was such a poor, destitute group of believers that they did not even have a Church-building.
The ‘SCROOBY Congregation was just a HOUSE CHURCH!’
In fear for their lives, physical well being, safety of their children and chastity of their wives, they sought to leave England. King James would not grant them passport. They were betrayed by their countrymen, businessmen, government officials, neighbors & community.
They had everything they owned stolen, they were ALL imprisoned and treated as ‘Outlaw Criminals‘ just because they ‘Worshiped outside the Law‘! They were deceived by those whom they hired a ship to escape England by cover of night. They were violated by the soldiers of England in service to the wicked & mad King James - of King James Bible fame.
The Puritan Separatists from Scrooby were called ‘Pilgrims’ when they left the land of their parents & birth - on their Pilgrimage - to seek freedom to ‘Serve God according to the Bible. Having all of their money & property confiscated, they went to Holland long before going to the New World.
However, things were very difficult in Holland due to their poverty, the new language, near-starvation living, and with very difficult labor - even for the women & children: so much so, that their young ladies were growing deformed in bone structures.
Even more sadly, their poverty-&-labor stricken youth had a constant eye on the wealth and wanton ways of the Holland youth. While Holland had religious for the Pilgrims, they also have many freedoms for sin & ungodliness, much like the USA today. Thus many of the Pilgrim youth were drawn by the ‘bright-lights’ of a 'better job’ and less-burdened life of CHRISTIANS who were ‘Non-Puritan & non-separatist’.
The Pilgrims decided they must move to the wilderness of the New World, facing harsh elements, natives with savage war practices, pirates & terrorists, unusual diseases & wild beasts, and - a ‘Once-for-life-decision’ of selling all AGAIN, and crossing the Atlantic: forever!
The Pilgrims bought a ship this time - after the two rentals: the Speedwell, which nearly sank. They went ashore in a far English port for repairs and headed on. Not far out to sea, it came even closer to sinking, and obviously, was not sea worthy [There is evidence that the sailors they hired to take their ship to New England - sabotaged the Speedwell - so they would not have to fulfill their contract with the Pilgrims - already having been paid to get aboard. Betrayal-three.
Nearly 15 years had gone by. Many of the First Pilgrims hoping to go to the New World had died. Some decided they were too old, too tired, unhealthy, sickly and/or too poverty-stricken, and thus ill-prepared to carve out a life in the distant wilderness.
However, when it seemed there were NO MORE possibilities, word of their fabled story reached the leaders of a wealthy Land Company in London, which offered to ‘buy the Pilgrims like indentured servants’ - and send them to the New World, where they had been trying to go for years. Once there, the Pilgrims would pay the Land Company so much per year for many years to come for the voyage across the sea.
There is much more - so much more - with Many Magnificent Miracles!
One example of the Heavy Hand of God working is as follows.
The Pilgrims having no choice became the hired-long-term servants of the London land company. Thus the Pilgrims were to start an ENGLISH Colony, under ENGLISH Law & authority, on ENGLISH soil in northern Virginia.
Thus they would NOT have the freedom and autonomy they had long for these decades, but it would be far better than Europe in many ways: from religious persecution to sinful temptations.
However, on the long voyage across the Atlantic, much of the trip was filled with powerful storms, of which most people would have complained mightily - as the Pilgrims spent most of their days & nights in the cramped quarters of the Mayflower: very small, only 4-feet high, without heat, without restroom facilities, only candle light and much sea-sickness from the stormy seas.
The Pilgrims were FORCED to believe that God was directing the storms and had purpose for them, as He knew - how much the Pilgrims loved Him. and were willing to suffer all things, sacrifice all things, and surrender all things - to serve Him according to His Word. As difficult as it was, the storms continued.
Even their leader - Mr. Bradford - lost his wife as a stormy wave swept her over board, never to be seen again. She was 29 years of age, and her 30 year old husband: became a widower.
God was in those storms and the Pilgrims were blown hundreds of miles off course to the north - so far north, that they were no longer in the territory belonging to England. Thus they were truly FREE!
There was NO LAW or authority where they landed, and realizing they needed legal structure for their new settlement-colony-nation, they drew up this FIRST CHRISTIAN CONSTITUTION, with God’s Law as the Law of the Land: The Mayflower Compact!
There is so much more I PLEAD with you again to read it all - at least ONCE in your life. For example: HALF of them died from sickness the first winter, their FIRST THANKSGIVING was one of famine: truly thankful for the peace & freedom, but in such famine that they DUG UP GRAVES of native tribes (whose custom it was to bury beans & corn with their dead- the Pilgrims eating the ‘robbed-grave-food’ to keep them all from starving completely to death.
Another example! IT took them ALL OF THEIR LIVES - and much of their children’s lives - to work and pay off the London Company who brought them to the New World.
Here’s the whole point!
What was the Pilgrims’ WORLDVIEW to cause them to ENDURE grief and great hardship,
What was the Pilgrims’ WORLDVIEW to cause them to ENDURE grief and great hardship, for decade after decade, with setback after setback, with seemingly nothing from this life but the Devil’s Brew of Bitter Tears?
 Modern Church USA looks for Jesus to come at any moment: maybe yet today!
* * [1-a] Conversely, the Pilgrims did not look for Him UNTIL the world had been completely evangelized, every creature, just like Jesus said, 'Teaching them ALL THINGS - whatsoever Jesus had taught His disciples - and insuring that they OBSERVE HIS COMMANDMENTS' - Just as Jesus had said! Mat 28.18-21
 Modern Church USA, believes EVERYTHING is to get ever-worse, ever-more wicked, and there is nothing the Church can do about it.!
* * [2-a] Conversely, the Pilgrims believe that each new convert makes the world a little more the Kingdom of Heaven, that this is what Jesus commanded us all to do, until EVERY CREATURE was gospelized, taught ALL things that Jesus taught, and made to OBSERVE THESE TEACHINGS!
 Since Modern Church USA, believes EVERYTHING is to get ever-more wicked and ever-more worse, and there is nothing the Church can do about it, that urgent prayers for revival are useless, there really is no need to worry about this evil world, witness to this evil world, convert this evil world, or teach them all things.
There’s gonna be a GREAT FALLING AWAY anyhow, and it can’t be stopped. So why Bother? OBVIOUSLY, there is NO SPIRITUAL URGENCY.
[3-a] Conversely, the Pilgrims believed that there was EXTREME URGENCY, each new convert makes the world a little more the Kingdom of Heaven, that Christ had ALL AUTHORITY just like He claimed in Matt 28.18-21, thus they were to establish CHRISTIAN GOVERNMENT, with GOD’S LAWS, and insure that all things Christ taught - WERE OBSERVED BY ALL! - Just like Jesus commanded in His Great Commission!
 Since Modern Church USA, believes EVERYTHING is to get ever-more wicked and ever-more worse, that the Anti-Christ is coming - probably alive on Earth right now - which evil decimate & emasculate the Church, that the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ has NO CHOICE but to:
> CLOSE CHURCHES by the scores of thousands,
> > get ever SMALLER,
> > > get ever WEAKER,
> > > > win ever FEWER SOULS,
> > > > > get ever POORER as people quit tithing,
> > > > > > have ever LESS INFLUENCE on government & culture,
> > > > > > eventually become a STAGNANT, USELESS, PATHETIC REMNANT - losing our children and failing to reach the lost: COLD, DYING, LUKEWARM, CARELESS, WORLDLY, & DESTITUTE
You know - just like the TYPICAL CHURCH IS Today in the USA!)
[4-a] Conversely, the Pilgrims believed NONE of these things, but rather believed thet JESUS WAS BUILDING HIS CHURCH - has ALWAYS been building, would KEEP ON building it, and NEVER STOP building it - that each new convert makes the world a little more the Kingdom of Heaven;
That each nation becoming truly a Christian majority, electing ONLY Christian Leaders, who legislated ONLY Christian laws, sending their children to ONLY Christian schools: that the MIGHTY CHURCH of Jesus was C-O-M-I-N-G Convert-by-Convert;
Day-by-week-by-month-by-year-by-decade-by-century and would NEVER stop coming [GREEK CONTINUING VERB TENSE] just like Jesus commanded us all to pray: “Thy KINGDOM C-O-M-E” [continually until completely] thy will be DONE, ON EARTH JUST AS IT IS IN HEAVEN!
With such clear-cut teachings of Jesus, the Pilgrims were FULL of hope for tomorrow, that Christ’s will WOULD BE DONE ON THIS EARTH, just as in Heaven - WHEN - all Christians did their job of evangelizing, teaching ALL people ALL things Christ taught and seeing to it that ALL OBSERVED THESE TEACHINGS!
The Pilgrims believed the Kingdom of Christ was to Shine as a “City-sat-on-a Hill” whose light was to reflect the “Light of Christ” which city on that hill COULD NOT be hid, and thus not hid, ALL could see the Light - which 'shined ever-brighter unto a perfect day', which John wrote that the darkness WAS ALREADY PAST and the TRUE LIGHT of Gospel Truth NOW SHINED;
By which Light Jesus compared His C-O-M-I-N-G Kingdom (Greek continuing verb tense, coming Continually until Completely) to the 'Morning Rising as the Mighty Sun' - that His C-O-M-I-N-G would be like the morning light that shined out of the eastern morning sky:
Barely at first, Slowly all along, but Completely, Invincibly, in fact - destroying ALL night and burning away ALL fog - and Globally: Jesus said His Kingdom would fill the Earth, and be the GREATEST of ALL KINGDOMS!
That it had already begun - WITH HIM, and would grow as His parable teaches First the SEED, Jesus said, then it would grow more and a little blade would be seen, then the full plant, then the grain, then the full grain: then HARVEST TIME!
The Pilgrims believed very simply that as ALL OBEYED CHRIST’S GREAT COMMISSION they would:
> Evangelize the World Completely, which would lead to
> > Spiritually Conquering the World, which would lead to
> > > Christians Dominating the World, which would lead to
> > > > Christians Governing the World, which would lead to
> > > > > Christ's will being done on Earth, as it is in Heaven - just as He Commanded us to pray, which would lead to
> > > > > > His Church being OBEDIENT, FAITHFUL & DONE: which would lead to
> > > > > > > Christ’s Return to a world of Believers who LOVE, OBEY, HONOR & PRAISE HIM!
The Pilgrims believed very simply: Jesus PROMISED HE would build (Greek continuing verb tense, coming Continually until Completely) His Church - and contrary to the EVIL WORLD STOPPING THE CHURCH,
JESUS SAID the GATES OF HELL DO NOT PREVAIL AGAINST THE GLORIOUS CHURCH of the Lord Jesus Christ!
