Read the following from the Mayflower Compact: “Having-undertaken for the glory of God, and advancements of the Christian faith and honor of our king and country, a voyage to plant the first Colony in the Northern parts of Virginia...” Why do you think the colonists mentioned God’s glory before the king’s honor?
