How America was colonised by Christians -the arrival of the Mayflower Pilgrims - by Bill Federer
16/09/2006

One youth, John Howland, was swept overboard by a wave and rescued. His descendants include Ralph Waldo Emerson, Humphrey Bogart, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and George W. Bush. A boy died, and a mother gave birth. Intending to land in Virginia, they were blown off-course. Upon landing, Governor William Bradford wrote: "Being thus arrived in a good harbor, and brought safe to land, they fell upon their knees and blessed the God of Heaven who had brought them over the vast and furious ocean, and delivered them from all the perils and miseries thereof, again to set their feet on the firm and stable earth, their proper element." Though half died that first bitter winter, Governor Bradford wrote: "Last and not least, they cherished a great hope and inward zeal of laying good foundations...for the propagation and advance of the gospel of the kingdom of Christ in the remote parts of the world." Alan Franklin comments: Isn't it interesting that from one young man, who almost died, a varied group of talented individuals emerged. This shows how evil and wrong abortion is. Who knows what talent the world has thrown away, which would have sprung from the 50 million babies killed in America and six million in Britain? If you have had an abortion you can repent and be forgiven. With Jesus there is always the chance of a new beginning.
