Independence Museum: What famous ship carried this Bible?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

All week in Salt Lake City, the Independence Museum will give vistors a chance to view iconic pieces of American history in an up close and personal way. But for those who aren’t headed to Man in the Moon, Glenn has been revealing a few pieces on radio and TV for the past few days. Today, he unveiled William Bradford’s Bible, which accompanied the Pilgrim leader on his journey on The Mayflower.

“This is the Bible that Bradford had on the Mayflower. So Winthrop, Bradford, when they come to America, when Bradford comes to America, he has this Bible. This is the Bible that on the Mayflower they are talking about the shining city on the hill,” Glenn said.

The journey on The Mayflower was chronicled during Restoring Love last year in Dallas, TX:

    Glenn you must not believe the end of the world is near, otherwise you would not be spending millions on artifacts that will mean nothing at the end of the world.  They would be saved for what reason?  If I thought the end were near, I would be sending it all to missionaries to spread the good news before it was too late.  But, I’m not sure the end is yet, though it could be.

    William Bradford sailed on the Mayflower and established the puritan colony on Plymouth.  John Winthrop sailed on the Arabella ten years later and landed at Salem.  Winthrop, not Bradford, is famous for the “shining city on the hill” quote, and it is found in his A Model of Christian Charity sermon, which was, most likely, written aboard the Arabella.  Glenn, before you get on the air talking about such an important part of American history, and such an awesome artifact, get your facts straight!  You owe this to your listeners.

    Remember that “the end” will not be as quick & sudden as some think it will. Even during the greatest turmoil our world will experience, the Gospel message will still need to be spread. When Christ will come & reign upon the earth, not everyone will be converted necessarily. At least that’s how I understand the scriptures. I see it a bit like being similar to when the Nephites had their period of peace after Christ visited them. The peace wasn’t because they were all members & all agreed on everything. The peace came from them maintaining the vital mechanisms that ensure a peaceful society. I’m sure part of that was having a fair economic system, with a free market, but one in which a physician wasn’t valued at 5-10x that of a home builder or bread maker. Also, they probably kept their food system far more pure, so that people weren’t acting out of deficiency or toxicity like a lot of people do nowadays. I’m sure they weren’t afraid to discuss their disagreements & stick their heads in the sand like most people (especially church members) do today. It’s as if so many are asleep and they think that by ignoring a problem it will go away. But, rather, they are only giving it more power. Just like if there is a bully in the school yard- if those that have the power to stop the bullying & reason with or discipline the bully don’t do anything, then the bullying will most likely only get worse.

    In Winthrop’s sermon, I didn’t see him use the word “shining” in front of “city on a hill”. Did I just not see it? Or is the “shining” added because it’s from the scriptures?

    I just thought that I’d also mention that it has been estimated that Glenn has made in just the last few years over $80 million, so I’m sure that he has plenty of it to spare to preserve a few pieces of American history. I realize that you are probably one of those people (I often fall in this category as well) that does not care too much for keepsakes or heirlooms when it just seems like “moth & rust” will “corrupt” it shortly (or it’ll be burned with the wicked). I don’t condemn you for this mentality, but I would just like to mention that I have come to realize that there may not really be anything wrong with the nostalgia of it. We might just be judging something that is part of his personality. I don’t know, but that is what I think right now. Anyway, I do honor your enthusiasm for spreading the Gospel. I feel more every day that the most important work we can be doing at this point is spreading the Gospel as well as any truth that we find because all truth is of God.

    I have so many things from my ancestors that I need to give to all the kids but they don’t seem eager to take them. I do like the history of them and many of them remind me of the good times we had. But they have mostly sentimental value. I was just commenting that to spend a lot of money on those things, bother me from a Christian point of view but it’s up to him. I was just saying that a person would not be out there buying that stuff if they thought the end was near.

    Two will be in the field and one will be left and the one taken. Behold, I come in the twinkling of an eye. If anyone says that I am in the desert or here or there do not believe them. (paraphrased of course).

    You make great points in both of your replies to me. Thank you for taking the time to kindly respond to my comments & help me see things better. I truly appreciate it. I agree with you & apologize if anything I said was out of line. Thanks again for clarifying your comments. :-)

    Nobody knows how these things will exactly play out.  For now, we see as through a mirror darkly.  God bless you and yours

    You’re faith in the bible is sickening.  You remind me of a retarded asshole,  Who believes everything he reads and never questions anything.  No wonder your kids don’t want your artifacts, it’s sad you’re to retarded to realize that.  But then again you’re a Glen Beck viewer you never question anything.  You bonehead.  I’m willing to bet you;’re an 80 year old bitch trapped in a nursing home.  Am I right? 

  • landofaahs

    I’m in between the steaks and roast ears of corn. I have a few moments. The kids are movers and shakers moving all over. They have the resources to explore and enjoy life wherever they wish. The world is their oyster as it was once mine. They will appreciate those things one day as I do now and did not appreciate when I was experiencing every culture I could to acquire knowledge. I am fit enough to have to take care of the steaks on the grill, feed chickens, milk cows, grow garden, plant trees and say you are the walking dead. LOL

    Who are you trying to bullshit?   You hate your kids.  You admitted to being a climate denier which proves you have no respect for your kids future.  Stop putting god,  fossil fuels and the 1% before your children.  Why don’t you pray away climate change.  Why?  Because your god can’t do shit,or he doesn’t want to.  Which is it? Is your god lazy or incompetent.  Or both!

    Silly rabbit. I have the young ones on my lap showing the nasty posts you make in order to show them at the impressionable age what liberals really are. Thanks for assisting for free in the education of the grand one’s. ;)))))))

  • landofaahs

    No, because we are watching you next month in “Dumbarry”. Watch for that sweet young gal that will smile at you…she will probably be one of ours in your area, ie a a NO WAY occupier. LOL

    Sweetheart what’s nasty about my posts?  Are they nasty, because the truth hurt’s, and because you’re a “KOCH-SUCKER” who supports the Koch brothers, fossil fuels and the 1%? This  is what this conversation should be about.  As that kid is sitting on your lap, I want you to look him in the eye, and tell him.  In 20 years you’re gonna hate me because I sat on my fat ass and put my party before you.  Thanks grandma  BATTA-BING!!  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4e8pKzXzH4A

    Time to put the bottle down, and say that in English.  What are you talking about?

  • landofaahs

    All the children are great.  Even the step children are great with the exception of one homo sapiens without the sapiens.. But we love him anyway, though he is…bent.  You won’t have to worry about his children
    Frankly vac.  I saw your profile and have pictures of you.  You had better go on a diet. If family history has anything to do with it, I will outlast you by years.  Only a few in our family do not make it into the 90′s.  They are for the most part drinkers and smokers.  Die young my friend. LOL )))))) 

  • landofaahs

    By the way vachead. How’s the cleaning business?  Losing any contracts? LOL ))))))

    I’m swamped honey.  I’m getting ready to pass the torch to my kid.  I think I’ll get a nice rewarding job, putting tattoo’s (solar-panes) on roof’s, and making people money.  In Connecticut we enjoy putting money in our pocket’s, while benefiting the future of our children.  We care about or kids. You want to burn fossil fuels and kill your kids. Isn’t that sad?  Why do you hate your kids?

    Numbers 15-32 The bible and god are both a piece of shit.  And you believe in both, that sad.  Have you ever read the bible?  If you have and you still follow what it teaches you a sick bastard.  I ain’t killing no one for working on sunday.  I don’t care what god tells me to do.

    Yes, you are right; he did not use the word shining, just city on a hill.
