Writing The American Bible

God has bid me to help author the First American Bible in order to end divisiveness in America. The Puritans were instrumental in authoring the King James Bible, and John Eliot, with the help of John Wilson, wrote the First American Bible in the Algonquin Language that very few can read. This is an astounding fact. Fourteen years went into writing a special Bible for very special people – the world knew nothing about! Did Islam know of the New World Natives? How about the Russian Orthodox Church? Did the Vikings who had contact with these natives – convert to Christianity?

I have been taking a close look at the Baptist Church, today, and now know I was really on to something when I ordered the Evangelicals out of the Republican Party – that I title ‘The Third Tower’. In Boston there is the Church Tower that John Wilson founded, and, the Church Tower that William Screven founded. They were, and still are, in sight of each other. They are symbols of The Religious Split that Wilson and Eliot tried to prevent. These two Men of God came from England, where religious rivalry had turned into a Holy War between the Catholics and the Church of England. The Puritans found themselves in the middle, and fled to the New World to escape REAL persecution. They were devoted to being rid of Religious Schism. That was at the top of the list. They were not dedicated to governing ones penis and vagina to prove what prigs they are. This is the religious propaganda of those who brought their schism to America, and fought with the Puritans for supremacy. This religious struggle resulted in the establishment of THE THIRD TOWER which is the Republican Party.

The Southern Baptist made a secret church out of a political party, in order to win over all of America. Add to this the demand that the Baptists enhance, and increase the Personal Relationship with Jesus catechism, then mere members of the congressional came to believe they could vote themselves – CLOSER TO GOD! This is why but a handful will look at the High Crimes and Misdemeanor, and his mountain of Sex Sins, lest the truth remove them from their Personal Relationship with God-Jesus. Million of Baptist-Evangelicals said they would let go our Constitutional, then let go of their Personal Jesus. This spells ruin for our Democracy. My claim to being the Rightful Heir to the Republican Party – looms large! I suspect Kim Haffner’s minister, and other church leaders – KNOW MY CLAIM IS VALID -and thus they launched a campaign to lock me up – and destroy me!

An American Schism, 250 years old, has morphed into a Political Schism, that is fastly eroding the Two Party System. This is vastly larger and more threatening than Watergate, because Nixon was not driven by religion. Trump knows nothing about the Bible. He is too busy with his self-loving mirror. He could not find the time to read about Diplomatic Etiquette, where the hand of the First Lady, or Head of State, is taken – first! Following NO RULES can not be the preferred way of the forty million evangelicals that put Trump in the New Baptist Church of the Political Awakening! They are appointing Supreme Court Justices in the name of Jesus – and the Divine Republican House of God.

I suggest a convention of American Religions meet at North Western University for the discussion of the writing America’s First Bible. All American Religions are invited to contribute their ideas of how this Bible will read. Islam is invited. I invite religious opinions that want to do away with all secular rule. Let us build the American House of God that contain the Words of God that will be voted upon. We must stop chasing the bird that got into our house. We are not coo-coo birds! We are Children of God who must instigate a Third Awakening.

First Church in Boston is a Unitarian Universalist Church (originally Congregationalist) founded in 1630 by John Winthrop‘s original Puritan settlement in Boston, Massachusetts. The current building is on 66 Marlborough Street in Boston. The church has long been associated with Harvard University.

History[edit]

The church was created in 1630 when the settlers on the Arbella arrived in what is now Charlestown, Massachusetts.[1] John Wilson was the first minister, and the only minister while the church was in Charlestown. Two years later they constructed a meeting house across the Charles River near what is now State Street in Boston, and Wilson was officially installed as minister there. In 1633 John Cotton arrived from England, and was a teaching elder at the church, helping to establish the foundation of the Congregational Church, the official state church of Massachusetts. In 1677 Dorcas Ye Blackmore, a freed slave, was allowed to become the first African American member of the church. [2] In the 18th century, Charles Chauncy was a minister at First Church for sixty years[3] and gained a reputation for opposing what he believed was emotionalism during the Great Awakening of Jonathan Edwards.[4]

A schism developed at the turn of the 19th century, the trinitarian Christian church eventually transformed into a unitarian congregation by the mid-19th century along with many of the other state churches in Massachusetts.[5] Massachusetts’ state churches (largely Unitarian and Congregationalist) including First Church were officially disaffiliated with the government in 1833.

In the 19th century, the First Church moved to Back Bay in Boston. The building at 66 Marlborough Street in Boston dated from 1867 and was designed by Boston architects William Robert Ware and Henry Van Brunt. After a fire in 1968, First Church and Second Church merged and built a new building at the same location. This building, by architect Paul Rudolph, incorporates part of the facade of the 1867 building.

Second Church, founded in 1649 when the population spread to the North End legitimated an additional congregation sited closer to those individuals’ homes, was also known as the “Church of the Mathers;” its pulpit was home to Increase Mather, Cotton Mather, and Samuel Mather from 1664 to 1741. Both churches were examples of the westward movement of Boston churches from the crowded, older downtown area to the newer, more fashionable Back Bay after it was filled in during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Second Church’s Back Bay location in the Fenway was sold (it is now owned by the Ruggles St. Baptist congregation) just before the merger.[6]

Notable people associated with the church[edit]

The First Baptist Church (or “Brattle Square Church”) is an historic American Baptist Churches USA congregation, established in 1665. It is one of the oldest Baptist churches in the United States. It first met secretly in members homes, and the doors of the first church were nailed shut by a decree from the Puritans in March 1680. The church was forced to move to Noddle’s Island. The church was forced to be disguised as a tavern and members traveled by water to worship. Rev. Dr. Stillman led the church in the North End for over 40 years, from 1764 to 1807. The church moved to Beacon Hill in 1854, where it was the tallest steeple in the city. After a slow demise under Rev. Dr. Rollin Heber Neale, the church briefly joined with the Shawmut Ave. Church, and the Warren Avenue Tabernacle, and merged and bought the current church in 1881, for $100,000.00[citation needed]. Since 1882 it has been located at the corner of Commonwealth Avenue and Clarendon Street in the Back Bay. The interior is currently a pending Boston Landmark through the Boston Landmarks Commission.

History[edit]

1665–1837[edit]

The congregation was founded in 1665 despite a Massachusetts law prohibiting opposition to infant baptism. Many of the early members of the church were persecuted and imprisoned by the state church for heresy, including the first pastor, Thomas Gould. Shortly before the founding of the church, the first Harvard College president, Henry Dunster, was forced to resign his position for refusing to baptize his infant. Dunster had been theologically influenced by Dr. John Clarke and other Rhode Island Baptists persecuted in Massachusetts.[2] During King Philip’s War, John Myles pastored the church while on hiatus from the First Baptist Church in Swansea, which was the first church in the state. “In 1679, the Boston Baptists built a meetinghouse in the North End of Boston, at the corner of Salem and Stillman Streets. …In the early 1700s, the small building was replaced by a larger wooden one on the same site. Here the Church flourished, for 43 years (1764–1807) under the leadership of Samuel Stillman.”[2] Samuel Stillman kept the doors open for services while the British invaded Boston and is said to have preached against them every single service.

In 1682, under the watch of William Screven, the church organised a spinoff mission in present-day Kittery, Maine; as a result of issues with Congregationalism in the 1690’s, the church moved to Charleston, South Carolina and is the modern day First Baptist Church meeting in James Island, South Carolina.

1837–1882[edit]

In 1837 the First Baptist congregation moved into a new brick church building (fourth meeting house) on the corner of Hanover Street and Union Street. Preachers included Rollin Heber Neale.[3] The congregation remained at this location until 1882.[2][4]

1882–present[edit]

The current church building (fifth meeting house) was constructed in 1869–1871 by the notable architect Henry Hobson Richardson. It opened in 1872 to serve the Unitarian congregation of the Brattle Street Church, also known as the Church in Brattle Square, which had been demolished in 1872.[5] The Unitarian congregation dissolved soon after moving to this building.[6] The First Baptist congregation bought the building in 1881 for a sum of $100,000/00. The historic and prominent tower with distinctive friezes carved “in-situ” by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi (sculptor of the Statue of Liberty) representing four sacraments, with faces of famous Bostonians (including Longfellow and Hawthorne), Abraham Lincoln, and Bartholdi’s friends of that era, (including Garibaldi). This building was H. H. Richardson’s first church before he designed his masterpiece Trinity Church. This church was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972. The congregation is affiliated with the American Baptist Churches USA.
