How the Bible got to America.
The new learning of the Protestant Reformation was the original theology of the Apostle Paul translated into English from the original Greek without any interpretation other than what the Apostle Paul said. The study of these manuscripts exposed the errors of the Latin Vulgate Version which was owned only by the World Council Authorities.
All protestants accept the Bible as the final authority about God and the Salvation of man. In the autumn of 1617 Raleigh still remained alive in prison in the Tower of London when two messengers, John Carver and Robert Cushman, were sent from Holland where the Pilgrims had escaped from persecution in England in 1607. At this time King James 1 had only come to the Throne of England a few years before.
By 1611 the King had lifted the Ban on the Bible and released it for publication into the hands of the people. Upon the request to move the Pilgrims to the New Heart Land of America, Carver and cushman sent a letter to the Secretary of State. Here is a partial quote of the letter giving permission from King James: “After my hearty salutations, the agents of your congregation, Robert Cushman and John Carver, have been in communication of his Majesty’s Council of Virginia and by writing of seven articles subscribed by your name (Pilgrims of Holland) has given them the said decree of satisfaction which has carried on with a resolution that may be for your own and the public good. For the protection and Blessings of the Highest God. from Edwin Sandys
