Weekend Reads: Rediscovering Cotton Mather
Originally one of the most famous American Puritans, Cotton Mather is making a well-deserved comeback.

Maligned in popular culture as narrow-minded killjoys, the Puritans have been rediscovered in some circles as Christians who took their faith seriously into all walks of life and laid a foundation for American liberty.

Kennedy, a history professor at Point Loma Nazarene University, shows how this third-generation Puritan leader lived out a serious and wholehearted Christian faith. In Mather’s post-Puritan New England period, other colonial leaders were content with a nominal or less evangelical faith. ...

Please, read British history to perceive how their influence derived into such groups, and in some cases, still permeate some Presbyterian circles today.

Sound preachers contended the liberals during the Unitarian controversy and a faithful remnant remained.

Not really they became Unitarians perhaps because their mercenary beliefs, but straight from Unitarians, they give a good history how they came to be, [URL=]]] (The Unitarian Controversy and Its Puritan Roots)[/URL]

Yes Harvard Divinity School is as liberal as they come, I have often used a paper that appeared in its journal written by Jew to tell about the founders of TBS and it is excellent! [URL=]]] (The Teflon Evangelists)[/URL] Even if the founder has died, it is still worth reading.

Unlike the above piece on what's-their-names all the articles I gave such as [URL=]]]Notes on "Christian" America--(A Myth That Won't Die)[/URL] Aren't all that anti-Mather or Puritans. They suffered from this, [URL=]]]What is Dominion Theology? (PDF)[/URL]

Donny Brook , DTS has helped many wanting theological teaching on line and during a long weekend. Their not reform, but if you go there you already know that. Don't know much of Harvard theological seminary, But from what I gather they follow a broad socialogical view of cultural religions. Plenty of woman, gay, Islamic studies and departments that are surrounding the cult of professorial personality. But , I digress, happy Sunday evening.

1. The Puritans fomented foundational working ethics in which industry, initiative, hard work and free enterprise endeared British and American societies into prosperity, equity and fair trade.

2. Puritans merged into separatist congregations, non-conformists and Presbyterianism.

Next thing you know, the great Shaker teachings will be promoted--well, maybe not, since they promoted celibacy. You won't find anyone saying, my grandparents were Shakers, my parents were Shakers, etc.

The most significant thing Israel did was debunk the Puritans idea they were new Israel, but wait! They did that to themselves when they turned into Unitarians!

Well, let's see if I can get a URL a little better, [URL=]]][/URL] The first time what I had didn't get you to this article -- which isn't all that anti-Mather when it comes to witch trials. It somewhat said he had an oblique influence. Hmm, I found a weekend read which has to do with the Puritans, and mentions Cotton quite a bit, gasp it's a long article and what I read of it, it's good! [URL=]]] (The Witches of Salem)[/URL]

A more admirable person than Cotton, [URL=]]][/URL] A Baptist besides.

"The author humbly avoids a judgmental tone toward Mather or the Puritans. He does not indulge in chronological snobbery and assume the tone of moral superiority"

Weren't the Puritans the ones who controlled the Mass. Bay Colony? Didn't they make it a law that everyone had to go to church on Sunday; anyone who didn't was arrested and spent time in jail or paid a fine? Didn't they also persecute anyone who disagreed with them, including tarring and feathering Quakers? Some say they even crucified them.
I would study Murray Rothbard's history, Conceived in Liberty, to understand how they ran that colony and their enforced Christianity.
Now, let's move on to today: what is the results of all their teachings? Do you think of New England when you think of a strong, Bible-believing Christian community?
Remember that Harvard University was established as a seminary. Is it still one today? Does it teach a Bible-believing Christianity today?
Can you say the same for another seminary, like Dallas Theological SEminary?

Yes, things change over 200 or so years. Look at the Ford Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, etc. started by conservative capitalists but today fund a leftist agenda.
