Columbus to Raleigh:
In the year of 1506 Columbus died and in 1552 Raleigh was born.
These years in between and even before and after were terrible dark years of persecution from the tyrants who ruled the people. In 1517, just 11 years after Columbus died Martin Luther challenged the Roman Church by nailing 95 questions to the church door. Luther called the World Church Council “The Enthroned Lie” that tyrannize the soul of christendom.
In 1522 Luther began his translation of the Holy Bible into the German Language. In 1537 William Tyndale was Burned alive at the stake for translating the Bible into English. The year Sir Walter Raleigh was born the World Church Council declared a decree to ban the Bible in hands of the people.
The (so called) “Peace of Augsburg” in 1552 (6 years after the death of Martin Luther) Mass murder took place at the time of this (so called) peace order. Here are just a few of the names that were murdered and burned alive simply for obeying Jude 3 and defending the faith once delivered to the saints. Thomas Cranmer 1553, Nicholas Ridley, Hugh Latimer, Lawrence Saunders, and Thomas Bilney who witnessed to Latimer through Luther’s translations of the Bible. William Brewster, leader of the Pilgrims was born in 1567.
Raleigh would have been 15 years old when Brewster was born. They may or may not have known each other but they definitely had the same heart for the heart land we now call United States of America. Brewster was in Service of Queen Elizabeth’s assistant, William Davidson. After Davidson’s fall Brewster returned to the town of Scrooby and became the Deacon of the Pilgrims. They worshipped in secret in Brewster’s home. This was around the same time that Raleigh desired to start a colony in his Heart Land of America.
