What should we learn from the Pilgrims? This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
The Pilgrims, who miraculously established the early American colony at Plymouth in 1620 and celebrated the first Thanksgiving with local Indians in 1621, were a subgroup of the Puritans, who believed the Church of England needed purifying in doctrine and practice from Roman Catholic influence.
The Pilgrims fled persecution in England for Holland, eventually making their historic voyage to America for religious freedom and economic opportunity.
Two things Christians can learn from the Pilgrims are their steadfast trust in God’s rule over the affairs of life and their willingness to separate from compromise.
This weekend, we’ll examine the recent State of Theology survey.
