Something I'm finding confusing: Books, forums, conversations, and indeed whole churches you encounter on the web or travelling make so much of trying to imitate the puritans. You hear or read stuff like: don't complain the services are too long. Puritans had 4 hour services. Or you read: we need, like the puritans, to purify our town and take it back for God. That sort of thing. The real irony is that it is coming from Baptists. Baptists were on the puritan hit list. They flogged and hung people for being Baptists. So why imitate them?
