Taking the Message of the Puritans into the Future

This is an interesting video. The idea of withdrawing from the world as thinking we are more holy for doing so is one that draws my attention to relationships we have established in the Amish community, as is religionizing the 16th century farm life of the Puritans. I do have one issue with taking the message of the Puritans into the future, namely, their puritan hope of postmillennialism, but, that is a topic for another day.

Oh, for the record, there is absolutely nothing wrong with raising chickens, or an agrarian lifestyle, per se. It is quite biblical actually. Just thought I’d, you know, throw that in there.
