He used the phrase "City Upon A Hill" (derived from the Bible's Sermon on the Mount: This is a collection of sayings and teachings of the messiah, which emphasizes his moral teaching found in the Gospel of Matthew. The Sermon is the longest piece of teaching from Yahoshua in the New Testament, and has been one of the most widely quoted elements of the Gospels.
So why is he the devil?
Winthrop's attitudes toward the local Native American populations was generally one of civility and diplomacy and a general theft of land. Historian Alfred Cave says colonists generally sought to acquire title to the lands they occupied in the early years, they also practiced a policy that was used most of the time predominately called Vacuum domicilium.
In short Vacuum domicilium means, if land is not under some sort of active use, it is free for the taking. This meant that lands that were only used seasonally by the natives; such as for fishing or hunting, which otherwise appeared to be empty, could be claimed. Winthrop claimed that the rights of "more advanced" peoples such as the white Christians superseded the rights of the hunter-gatherer heathen natives. He felt that God gave him the right to take dominion over the land.
This land garbing was merely a fulfillment of the dream of that "City on a Hill," . Winthrop was the messiah of the Massachusetts colonial but a devil to the so called natives of that land. These so called Puritans were not pure at all but had deceit in their heart to drive the so called Native Indian off of there land.
Thanksgiving is merely a dream in the hearts of white land garbing Americans of the past and misinformed people of today. Blindly celebrating a day of thanks to a god of lies, deceit and many broken treaty promises over and over again.
The Pequot War was an armed conflict between 1634 and 1638 between the Pequot tribe and an alliance of the English colonists of the Massachusetts Bay, Plymouth, Saybrook colonies and their Native American allies (the Narragansett and Mohegan tribes). Hundreds were killed; hundreds of prisoners sold into slavery to the West Indies. Other survivors were dispersed. At the end of the war, about seven hundred Pequots had been killed or taken into captivity. The result was the elimination of the Pequot as a viable polity in what is present-day Southern New England.
Slavery for the Israelites
Slavery, according to Puritan thought, was condoned in the Old Testament, and therefore was not considered sinful towards God. The institution already existed in the Massachusetts Bay area prior to John Winthrop's arrival, since Samuel Maverick arrived in the area with slaves in 1624, and Winthrop supported the practice. This is most clearly evident in the aftermath of the Pequot War, in which many of the captured Pequots were enslaved. The Massachusetts council, headed by Winthrop, approved this action. Male warriors, deemed dangerous to the colony, were shipped to the West Indies, while females and children were divided among the colonists. Winthrop recorded that the exported male Pequots were traded for "salt, cotton, tobacco, and Negroes", and the practice of exporting captured Indians to exchange for goods and Negro slaves became a routine practice. Winthrop was known to keep three Pequot slaves, a male and two females.
The mind set of the Puritans was one of white supremacy by way of war and complete destruction of the Israelite.
