Chapter excerpt

The copyright page: illustration: Although Henry VIII established the Church of england. But the British Protestants think, only from the Church of Rome separated from the Church of England is not enough, still need cleaning, to remove any residual traces of Rome "". These people were called pilgrims (Puhtan), is a radical reform faction. Hopes the massive changes to the Anglican rite and rating system for correction, has one thousand years of history of the Catholic faith error, the church to return to the initial "have not been defiled" state, the Christian original order, freedom and faith. They opposed the Anglican gorgeous arrangement, oppose with Catholic breath rituals, prayers followed against unnecessary and overelaborate formalities, against the church worship of "the Bible" people and things. Opposition to decorate the church ceremony music choir, bells and the organ. Against the Anglican priest wearing brightly colored "Rome gown". They even opposed to decorate the church building cross and stained glass windows, that these "symbols and smear" will only make people thought distraction, as his doubts, and not focus on missionary sermons and the gospel of god. The pilgrims not only against the Church of England's theory and the ceremony, but against the Anglican system. The Church of England by the British monarch and bishops and priests hierarchy control. In Puritan eyes, this system does not have the "Bible" permission, it will only deprive people of the true religious rights. The Puritans abhorred corruption priest who be known to all. Not only those who throw the dice gambling, and go to the prom, they are illiterate and not only from the book of Common Prayer sermon, find a word segmentation mumbled; they play cards, morality; have the illegitimate child, and never regret. The Puritans put such events as a symbol of the Church of England and the performance against corruption "Bible" discipline. "As the" Bible "believers", the Puritans thought the "Bible" text is manifestation of God. Therefore, guiding people's life should be to "the Bible", rather than the king, the pope or bishop. Each social stratum devout Puritans repeatedly read "the Bible", they debate on its meaning, and the "Bible" as the guiding religious, political, commercial and trade standards.
