The Godly heritage rooted within the real story of Thanksgiving and the Pilgrims

The Culture

Most kids in public schools are no longer being taught what a rich godly heritage this nation has. God and prayer have been thrown out of their schools, and with it the knowledge that early settlers made covenant with God and this allied the country with Him.

Much of this early heritage started with the Pilgrims in Plymouth, Massachusetts. These fervent religious believers were about so much more than turkeys, big belt buckles and a Thanksgiving feast. But what made the Pilgrims’ toehold in the New World so special and so miraculous has mostly been stripped away from today’s public school students.

On a recent trip down the East Coast, a group of pastors, interns and students from Victory Faith Church in Spokane, Washington came to reclaim that lost education for themselves and their children.

Or as Pastor Trevor Seaman put it, “Getting all of this information, revelation and the heart of God into the next generation.”
Victory Faith’s Senior Pastor Craig Lotze said of today’s young people, “Most of them, if they’ve been through public school and even a lot in Christian schools, they don’t know their history as far as how our nation was founded.”

Like that Pilgrims didn’t just come here to escape religious persecution, but to set up a new type of government.

In an age of absolute monarchs who ruled like God, the Pilgrims believed the radical idea that the real God made all humans equal, so no one of them should rule over all the others. Any leaders should be elected by the community and should be servants of the people, not lords over them.

“They didn’t think there should be this one man that was God over all the people,” said MeKenna Phillips, a member of Victory Faith’s School of Leadership.

“We’re all created in the image of God and therefore no one is above, no one is below,” is how the church’s Youth Ministries Director Trebor Angerman put it.

Only One King Was Acceptable: King Jesus

But Pilgrim re-enactor Leo Martin of Plymouth’s faith-based Jenney Museum told CBN News this didn’t mean the Pilgrims weren’t in submission to authority.

“They had another king…a heavenly king…King Jesus, and that’s who they followed,” he explained.
