Puritans, like Pharisees of old?
I heard that members of the so-called Salvation Army are banned from drinking and smoking and gambling, does this sound like Puritans? And do Puritans sound like the Jewish Pharisees in the time of Christ?
Since the Salvation Army started as a ministry to skid row alcoholics, these rules are not surprising.  The Salvation Army does not regard itself as the Church, and I don't think they would consider these rules to bind all Christians under pain of sin.
