Puritanism in A model of Christian Charity


A modell of Christian charity, also known as A City on a Hill, is the kind of Puritan
literature example that can fade the suspicious reader’s doubts in the Puritan main ideology
and beliefs. At least, this is how it seemed to me. This sermon can be seen as a gateway to the
Puritan society’s attitude and mindset as it is one of the most classical examples of the Puritan
era literature. Although John Winthrop was the leader of the Massachusetts Bay Colony which
was filled with corrupted chiefs, he vigorously emphasizes in his writings the unity of
community, love of others and morals of equality. This sermon also represents the hope of the
colony in God after repudiating the Church of England.

In his sermon A modell of Christian charity, reliance to the Bible is the key element which
reveals in the interpretation of God itself and morals of the Bible. He begins by offering
explanation to the inequality of the human kind and why God wants such inequality to exist at
all. Simple reciprocity is indicated by collating the rich and the poor as it follows: „soe that
the riche and mighty should not eate upp the poore nor the poore and dispised rise upp against
and shake off theire yoake” (Winthrop, 1996). These differences give humans the opportunity
to manifest the work of the Spirit within them. The poor are recommended be loyal and
honest in their worship to their betters and to authorities. The rich and powerful should
honestly and loyally share justice and mercy to the poor. Because of that God’s ignition is to
have these different types of people come together as one religious community that serves
both God and one another through their different strengths.

The element “love” is subjected through the Bible again, referencing to the sin of Adam’s.
Another way of defining this element is expressed as following:“might be all knitt more
nearly together in the Bonds of brotherly affection.”(Winthrop, 1996) Also, this can be looked
as the love of the community and the attempt of bringing the society more closer to each
other. Individuals are as one part of a body,
