Yale Covers Up Gun in Stone Carving of Puritan, Indian
Yale University has covered up a musket on a stone carving depicting a hostile interaction between a Puritan settler and an American Indian, leaving the latterâ€™s bow and arrow uncovered.
Yaleâ€™s head librarian, Susan Gibbons, and the schoolâ€™s Committee on Art in Public Spaces decided the carvingâ€™s presence at a reopened entrance to the schoolâ€™s library was â€śnot appropriate,â€ť according to Yale Alumni Magazine.
Cover up common- Facts covered up of Lincoln's crimes 1 Lincoln criminally rounded up Maryland officials - Lincoln's political detainees were imprisoned in Fort McHenry and Point Lookout without trial, in many cases, for several years. 2 Lincoln ordered Sherman &others to murder- murder of 50,000 innocent Southern civilians is like David's misuse of power for personal ends. 3Lincoln suspended writ of habeas corpus without consent of Congress (as required by the Constitution). 4.illegally shut down &confiscated the printing presses of dozens of newspapers that had spoken out against him. 5.

Here is a much needed reminder for the accuser of the brethren - From what has been said of our feelings and thoughts, it is evident that this class of sins also must be exceedingly numerous; for it is out of the abundance of the heart, that the mouth speaketh. If then, sin prevails in the heart, it will flow out through the lips. That it does so, is but too obvious. Not to insist on the falsehoods, the slanders, the profane, impious, and indecent expressions, which are daily uttered by many persons, it may be sufficient to remind you, that of every idle word which men speak, they shall give account in the day of judgment. Every idle word then is a sin. But what are idle words? I answer, all that are not necessary, and which do not tend to produce good effects. God's precepts are, Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth; but that which is good to the use of edifying. Let your speech be always with grace, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. Let not foolish talking or jesting, which are not becoming, be once named among you; but rather giving of thanks. Edward Payson Every time you falsely accuse, you sin against God Jim Lincoln,it is apparent you are not coming under conviction for your sins......

So Jim, other than getting the conversation off the topic, what do you think of the Yale librarian covering up the stone musket?
Puritans:- The Good News: "Today, many Christians are turning back to the puritans to, â€śwalk in the old paths,â€ť of Godâ€™s word, and to continue to proclaim old truth that glorifies Jesus Christ. There is no new theology. In our electronic age, more and more people are looking to add electronic books (ePubs, mobi and PDF formats) to their library â€“ books from the Reformers and Puritans â€“ in order to become a â€śdigital puritanâ€ť themselves."

BDM wrote: In fact, the Puritans were the direct forerunners of today's Kingdom/Dominion/Reconstructionist heresy. The Puritans believed that they were carrying to America true Christianity as decreed by God, especially as written in the Old Testament. They believed too that they were on a divine mission to America, a place specially appointed by God to be the "New Israel," a theocratic "city upon a hill." The Puritans viewed themselves as God's special people, replacing national Israel, and that the American Indians were the "new Canaanites." The fruit of the Puritan's theology was brutal. They saw their mission as convert these "Canaanites" to Christianity, or slaughter them in the name of Christ. For example, the Puritan massacres of the Pequot Indian tribe on May 26, 1637, and again on July 14, 1637, were deemed by the Puritans to be directed by God -- Captain John Mason declared, "God laughed his enemies and the enemies of his people to scorn, making them as a fiery oven ... Thus did the Lord judge among the heathen, filling the place with dead bodies" ...

No doubt there were some worthies among Puritans, especially the Engligh ones, like Matthew Henry. It is interesting to note, what is left of the Puritans today? Some Congregationalists and guess, [URL=http://uudb.org/articles/unitariancontroversy.html]]]http://tinyurl.com/jkhsosd (The Unitarian Controversy and Its Puritan Roots)[/URL].
So, it is the religious descendants who are liberal and attacking this stature. The fruits of Puritanism has been bad indeed.
It's a pity that the Puritans didn't learn about [URL=http://dominion-theology.blogspot.com/]]]http://tinyurl.com/gud7u8l (The Deception of Dominion Theology)[/URL].

BDM wrote: The Puritans viewed themselves as God's special people, replacing national Israel. Nowhere do the dangers of this assumption become more clear than in the Puritans' treatment of the native Americans. Since the Puritans considered themselves God's chosen people, they concluded that they had the right to take the land from the heathen Indians. The American Indians were the "new Canaanites" in America's "Promised Land." The fruit of Puritan theology was brutal. They saw their mission as convert these "Canaanites" to Christianity; failing that, it was acceptable to slaughter them in the name of Christ.
The actions of the Puritans toward the Indians are an excellent indication of how reconstructionist eschatology will lead one into ungodly behavior -- one's eschatology will always affect one's worldview. The Puritans misguided view of God's calling for them led them into a worldview alien to that of the apostle Paul's -- i.e., to be sojourners and peacemakers.
The Puritans are even an embarrassment to atheists.
From the news: "Yale University has covered up a musket on a stone carving depicting a hostile interaction between a Puritan settler and an American Indian, leaving the latterâ€™s bow and arrow uncovered."
The photo makes you wonder how they decided it was "hostile interaction." They aren't even facing each other. Oh well, when a point is to be made, one liberal snowflake lie is as good as another. Besides, liberal snowflakes are afraid of stone muskets, not stone bows and arrows.
