John Eliot: Apostle To The Indians

Postby EzraLB » Mon Feb 29, 2016 9:24 am

The English-born Reverend John Eliot (1604-1690) was likely more responsible than any other Puritan missionary in Colonial America for bringing Christianity to the "Native" Indians. The zeal with which he undertook his "mission" is astonishing, going so far as learning the Algonquin language and translating the Bible into the native tongue.

In fact, the 1663 Eliot Bible (or Mamusse Wunneetupanatamwe Up-Biblum God aka Algonquian Bible) is purportedly believed to be the first edition of the Bible published in the New World, which reveals just how misguided the priorities of these Puritans actually were. In keeping with their zealotry, the Colonial Puritans went so far as to compare Eliot's missionary work to that of the Apostle Paul.

It was actually John Eliot who was responsible for creating the first "Indian Reservations" which were small towns specifically dedicated to the "Praying Indians". And to put Eliot's conversion mania into perspective, he spent an estimated 16,000 pounds in order to publish his Indian Bible--a staggering sum at the time.

Of course, Eliot's drive to convert the Indians can easily be traced directly back to the jew, Menasseh Ben Israel, the Holland-based Portuguese rabbi, who was born the same year as John Eliot. It was Ben Israel who first introduced to the English Puritans the idea that the Indians of the New World were descendants of the Lost Tribes of Israel.

There were many English Puritan writers who, under the influence of Ben Menasseh, wrote books and pamphlets "demonstrating" that the Native Indians were The Lost Tribes, most notably Thomas Thorowgood, who wrote, Probabilities that the Americans are Jewes, which made the outrageous claim that primitive Indian rituals were consistent with jewish rituals. He wrote,

"The rites, fashions, ceremonies, and opinions of the Americans are in many things agreeable to the custom of the Jewes, not only prophane and common usages, but such as he called solemn and sacred."

Clearly the jews promoted this idea to the gullible goyim not because they actually believed it, but rather to further their own selfish goals--to gain re-admission into England--allegedly to fulfill biblical prophecy--and to lay the groundwork for their ungodly presence in the New World. ... y%29#Works ... oc12b.html

"No Rothschild is English. No Baruch, Morgenthau, Cohen, Lehman, Warburg, Kuhn, Kahn, Schiff, Sieff or Solomon was ever born Anglo-Saxon. And it is for this filth that you fight. It is for this filth that you murdered your Empire. It is this filth that elects, selects, your politicians." -- Ezra Pound

I have to admit, that is an interesting piece of colonial history that has flown under my radar!
For the Word of Yahweh is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Heb. 4:12
