Puritanism exists in what we do today. We relate back to Puritanism from the past in the actions we do.
Puritanism has a large influence on many things in life today even though Puritans no longer exist in the present day. People can still relate to the same concepts and principles that Puritanism was based on, such as beliefs in loving care for others and respect for his or her religion. Just days ago, an anonymous citizen in Port Jefferson, New York showed those same thoughts and feelings as Puritans had when he won the lottery. The lottery was worth about three million dollars, and this man gave all of the winnings to The True North Community Church of Port Jefferson. Barack Obama also seems to follow the concept of Puritanism as he gives many speeches to our country. He mentions the importance of people’s hard work and moral behavior just as the Puritans had. Our country shows our beliefs in some aspects of Puritanism in Obama’s speeches by voting for him to become a candidate and installing those ideas into the United States Government. Many other people in our world today and in the past have proven to be splendid examples of Puritanism and continue to reinforce its topics as good ideas.
