Understanding the original spirit of America … – blog Jacek KM

When Americans talk about their Judeo-Christian foundations, it is not metaphorical, the American Puritans who created their state believed that they were the new chosen people, whom God blessed and gave a chance to build a state according to the best biblical patterns. If anyone today wants to understand the power of the unconditional bond of American Evangelicals with Israel, he cannot ignore this biblical aspect.

Each nation was created on its proper foundations, which, by getting to know it, we gain knowledge about the factors that shaped it over the centuries and left their mark on its character. The colonial America, fighting for its independence, isolated from greater dangers by the Atlantic Ocean, appeared on world maps when the First Republic was disappearing from them, surrounded by neighbors growing in strength. Compared to the multi-ethnic and multi-religious Republic torn apart by internal and external intrigues, the emerging America was at odds with the kingdom of Great Britain on economic and religious grounds. In this statement, let us try to look at the enormous importance of the religious factor in American history.

The European emigrants who settled in the English colonies on America’s east coast were Protestants, Puritans fleeing persecution first from England to Holland and then to America (1620 the Mayflower landed at Plymouth Rock). During the American Revolution, Protestants accounted for almost 85% of the local European emigration, although their number slowly decreased over the next decades, but to this day they are a great force (WASP). Puritans created the necessary myths necessary for the building of a new state, filled the cultural fabric of society with these myths and the specific mission resulting from them.

When Americans talk about their Judeo-Christian foundations, it is not metaphorical, the American Puritans who created their state believed that they were the new chosen people, whom God blessed and gave a chance to build a state according to the best biblical patterns. If anyone today wants to understand the power of the unconditional bond of American Evangelicals with Israel, he cannot ignore this biblical aspect. Of course, another matter is the depth and degree of penetration of the American political elite by Jewish lobbyists.

According to the Puritans, God gave sinful people a second chance, and after a less successful experiment with the first chosen people, the new Americans were given a new chance. So they became the new Israelites also fleeing the persecution of the evil ruler Pharaoh (BTW in Egypt there were no “pharaohs”, former kings, the word refers to a ruler from the Arab peninsula on the border with Yemen). Of course, the “evil pharaoh” of the Puritans was Queen Elizabeth I, who persecuted them and, in their opinion, was not Protestant enough (she liked exquisite stained glass windows and figures of saints, did not like long, e.g. 3-hour masses). As we remember, Puritans in England destroyed statues of saints, Our Lady, etc. because they believed that their creators and sponsors wanted to brazenly gain God’s favors in this way, which was unauthorized (here, for example, Calvin). It is God who decides who will be saved, and you do not have much influence over it, even if you try hard.

If Elizabeth I was employed as a pharaoh, then for the new Israelites the Red Sea through which they escaped from the evil ruler’s repression was the Atlantic Ocean. Let me just remind you that the Israelites did not flee Egypt through the Red Sea, but at most in the north through the swamps and backwaters of the Nile delta, where the heavy beds of the proverbial pharaoh on horses could get bogged down at that time, but whatever, the myth is a myth. If Moses, who led the refugees across the Red Sea and deserts, was the father of the Israelites, then General George Washington became the father of a new nation in America. Of course, every religion, as part of rebellion and fight against corruption, gives birth to sects in its womb, which with time become religions. It is said, you join a sect, you are born in religion. A good example of this is the Mormons who followed the path of the Puritans, for them East Coast Christianity has become as corrupt as Elizabethan England was before. Therefore, discriminated against Mormons, in order to be able to confess God and live according to his principles, decided to go deep into the American continent (today the state of Utah).
