For many years now there has been strife and debate by historians in regard to the honor of those that settled, what is now the United States. Works such as The Scarlet Letter or The Crucible have rewritten our history to the point that if we look into the thesaurus Puritan synonyms are primitive, strict, holier-than-thou, prudish, snobbish, self-righteous, crude and so forth.
However, how does the Lord view the founding colonizers of our nation? The Lord himself has placed His stamp of approval on the faithfulness of the Puritan fathers who settled Salem Massachusetts. The Book of Mormon emphasizes our pure Christian founding. This is more than a historic controversy, this is a modern battleground.
