Three church groups came out of the Elizabethan Era that had great affect on the English colonies

Look at p64.  What was the Puritan theology
                       the idea of the covenantGod deals with mankind through a series of covenants, or agreements.  In salvation, the believer enters into a "covenant of grace" with God.  God saves an individual and in return the believer fulfills his "covenant obligations" - obeying God's law. (10 Commandments)

Puritans believed that good works was a natural result of salvation.  Is this what we believe today? Let's look at

Romans 12                            Living Sacrifices to God

                              1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.                              

Puritans agreed that Christian dedication was simply the "reasonable service" of one who had received the "mercies of God."  What do you believe?

Eventually descendents of the Puritans lost sight of the covenant and became luke warm.

There was no separation of church and state.  In order to be a citizen, buy property, obtain a license you had to be a church member.

So, they passed a law:

    Half-way covenant  descendants of church members could be on the church rolls with out being saved.
