For a start, both Puritanism and Religion have the concept of eternal life in common. While Religion applies this to spiritual eternity, the Puritans seem to believe in physical eternity. Religion promises that if we obey the tenets of the belief that we will live forever in Heaven, while the Puritans tell us constantly that by not obeying their tenets, we will die physically, often with painful and debilitating consequences which presumably is their concept of Hell.A good read and is found HERE.
