A Model of Christian Charity points us in the direction of enlightenment through the love of God based on mutual respect and adoration, never lustful or sinful, and following in the spirit of connected separate bodies. John Winthrop ask his people to love one another as neighbors, as brotherly bonds whom strengthen pure love and separate this love from carnal love on a model of affection. Winthro...
Hello my name is Alma Castro, I am 16 years old and I am now attending Skyline High School for the Child Care Cluster. I live with my mom, dad, 1 sister (Cynthia who is 14), and 2 brothers (Alfredo 12 and Eduardo 9) in a house in Oak Cliff. My house is about 5 minutes from downtown Dallas. My family and I enjoy going to the movies, the park, and going out to eat as a family. But this is only the beginning of what I am about to tell you about my life.
The colonies in America were so different from each other. They struggled to be unified together and because of that difference, America became a home of different ideologies about religion and politics. It became a melting pot full of ideas. That was what American culture became and what it still is today, except America is not under the control of another
He instructs them “to doe Justly, to love mercy, to walke humbly with [their] God” to avoid the typical misfortunes that occur with new settlements, such as the disaster of Jamestown (paragraph 1). These instructions depict the Puritan lifestyle as open performances of kindness and encouragement of others to perform these same acts. Here, Winthrop emphasizes the values of community and brotherhood. In Winthrop’s eyes, everyone is a living example of God and His goodness, and everyone must show God’s compassion through every action, lest they “shame the faces of many of gods worthy servants, and… their prayers be turned into Cursses upon us” (paragraph 2). In this speech, the internal goals of America can be found, such as kindness, meekness, and brotherly affection. Winthrop instructs the new colonists to “entertaine each other in brotherly Affeccion,” which is similar to the American concept of a nation formed from brotherhood (paragraph 1). Americans at least had the intent of living by the true morals of Christianity, like altruism and almsgiving, but somewhere along in its development, these morals became easier said than
Many Europeans came to America and settled. The English Colonies were eventually established as the permeant power in what is now the East Coast.The thirteen original colonies were growing and expanding but they were unable to establish their own laws or a militia unless they petitioned the king of England. The Colonies declared independence on Great Britain because they realised how unjust the monarchy was, how they had no say in what was to become laws and with the way taxes were held.
Virginia and Massachusetts were colonies created by English men that left Europe. In the years of 1580 and 1650 England population expanded to more than 5 million . The expansion brought economic problems to England people were desperate for work. Many families couldn’t afford money for food because the expansion drove up the prices. The expansion and poverty forced people to migrate to other countries. For those English men, America was the easiest solution to their problems because in America they would have a place where they could support their families. Many of the English immigrants came to America with the need to give their families a better life style. Some of them wanted to find wealth in America. The two settlements Virginia and Massachusetts were the result of families’ quest for a better future in the new world. Another reason that people left England was for religious freedom.
The society that became known as the United States had its beginnings when the first English settlers set foot on North American soil. Whether that settler landed in Massachusetts or Virginia, their beginnings on this continent were all influenced by the society that they had left behind. These included many aspects of England's society, culture, economy, and politics. Those societal, cultural, economic and political beginnings can be traced throughout our history in the mindset that both the North and South represented. This migration to a new world set the stage for the culture of slavery that which was not the only cause by any means certainly went a long way toward bringing about the American Civil War.
I believe Englishmen came to North America because they were having problems in their country like religious issues, economic and political values. For years and years the problems kept getting worse until it started into the civil war that forced them to leave their country. England economy led them to be in poverty. How they were affected coming from England to the New World, and it was better for them.
As a dedicated Puritan, John Winthrop believed in the necessity of following God’s rules. “God Almighty... ”, Winthrop highly uses the name of God in his “A Model of Christian Charity” from 1630. While preparing to a new life in the newfangled colony, the soon to be the first Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony was determined to build a better life to his supporter based in God’s fundaments of living. Winthrop believe in use the power of God to create a strong and compliant colony. His vision of a unified colony was excessive reinforce in his speeches. A colony where the people work together and help each other, always following the God’s principles.
John Winthrop was a well-respected man of his time. He wrote one of his famous sermons “A Modell of Christian Charity” as him and other Puritans left England for America in 1630 and he also became the first governor of Massachusetts, but before that he was a different man. As an early child raised in England, John was usually exposed to religious conversations between his father and clergymen that resulted in John receiving information about religion. As he grew older he would also keep a journal to describe his religious understanding and feelings towards religion. By having these influences and by wanting to know more about religion, it helped shape what he wrote because if he was never exposed to the religious views and religion in general,
