America’s Thanksgiving: From Socialism to Prosperity

by Marshall Foster

As our thoughts turn to Thanksgiving this year, it is a perfect time to recapture the true spirit of America’s Pilgrim ancestors. We are in a time of great trial, in many ways reminiscent of these faithful believers. It would be wonderful to share with our families and friends this Thanksgiving this brief story of the amazing sacrifice of these brave forerunners of our freedom. As we shall see, it cost them everything to lay the foundation of the most prosperous and free nation in history. Will the strength of our character be tested like theirs was?

The story begins in the small village of Scrooby as the Separatists (later called Pilgrims) began an underground church in the basement of a livery stable. These unlikely world changers desired to live a quiet life, raise their families and worship God according to the teachings of the Bible. But their biblical faith brought them face to face with the big government tyranny of their day.

King James I, the divine right tyrant of England, claimed absolute control over every person in his realm. He tortured, killed or exiled all who disagreed with him. He broke with the laws of England, to make all laws at his whim. (This is called “king’s law” and has been the tool of tyrants to keep almost all people in the world cowering in fear before them for 5,000 years.) The king was enraged that the Separatists dared to obey God rather than the king with regard to their worship and sacredly held beliefs. King James said “I will harry them out of the land - or else do worse.”

Thanksgiving Produces Thanks-Living

Rose Familyby James and Barbara Rose

Christian Self Government produces Local Self Governing Christian Homes, Churches, Communities. Self Government is explained in I John 3:24: "He that keepeth his commandments DWELLETH IN HIM, and HE IN HIM. And hereby we know that HE ABIDETH IN US, by the Spirit which He hath given us." The internal gives rise to the external.

George Washington's and America's FIRST THANKSGIVING PROCLAMATION requested Americans to pray God… 1) "to pardon our national sins; 2) "to render our national government a blessing to all the people (HOW?) by being a government of wise (laws), just and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed, and 3) "to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion (which was Biblical Christianity at that time) and virtue (or the righteousness of Christ)…".

"The Pilgrim wanted LIBERTY for himself and his wife and little ones, and for his brethren, to WALK WITH GOD in a Christian life as the rules and motives of such a life were revealed to him from God's Word. For that he went into exile; for that he crossed the ocean; for that he made his home in a wilderness." (Leonard Bacon, 1874)

Restoring the Real Meaning of ThanksgivingRestoring the Real Meaning of Thanksgiving
by Dr. D. James Kennedy with Charles Hull Wolfe

Restoring the Real Meaning of Thanksgiving
finds its origin in the Pilgrims' practice of being thankful for God's provision -- adapted from an Old Testament tradition, the Feast of Tabernacles. Our American Thanksgiving originally was a day to remember the God of our Fathers and His blessings on our land. Today, however, it is all about feasting and football. Restoring Thanksgiving will require a culture-wide renewal, and Dr. Kennedy, with coauthor Charles Hull Wolfe, outlines steps believers can take to restore their own Thanksgiving Day observance.
