Puritans and The 10 Commandments

Puritan Life

The Puritans were a serious group of people who put God and hard work first in their lives. They hardly had any time for fun or good times.


They worked together to build their towns, but this led to a fear of outsiders and nonconformity. People who threatened them were either banished into the woods or were killed, sometimes accused of witchcraft. The Puritans believed in a "fire and brimstone" way of preaching, and feared an angry God.
