I have to say with Adam who also replied that I am not aware of the incident with Cotton Mather.

I hope I can offer some encouragement, though, Linda.

First of all, be at peace knowing that all judgment has been given by God the Father to His Holy, Righteous Son, Jesus Christ, the Messiah. Each one of us will appear before Him; and Cotton Mather will give an account of his deeds, and will be judged accordingly. God is good and wise, and He will do the right thing by all parties concerned.

Secondly, Jesus was very clear on several things. He tells us that hatred in the heart is murder. If you are angry and hateful over what seems to be injustices done in the past, then you, dear Linda, are no better than Cotton Mather was. We see so clearly the mote in others' eyes, and fail to see the beam in our own eye. Hatred is 'heart murder', i.e., we'd murder someone if we could get away with it.

Jesus also told us to love our enemies, to pray for those who despitefully use us, because God Himself gives blessings to those who serve Him and to those who do not. By doing so, we conform ourselves to God, instead of conforming ourselves to the devil, 'the god of this world."

Jesus told us to pray to the Father, 'forgive us our trespasses AS WE FORGIVE those who trespass against us", further explaining that if we do not forgive, neither will the Father forgive us! THAT is scary, Linda! Is it worth your eternal soul, to harbor grudges against others, and risk leaving this earth unforgiven yourself? What FREEDOM you would experience if you forgive and FORGET, because FORGETTING what 'they' did to me/us is a huge part of forgiving! How wonderful you will feel! If you can't do this on your own (and none of us can!), ask Jesus to help you!

You are heaven-laden with all of the resentments for the past, yet Jesus invites you to cast your burdens on Him; release these cares to Jesus, and pick up your cross and follow Him.

Grace to you, Linda...

Peace to you.

For what it may be worth:

"Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man. Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man." Genesis 9:3-6

"...blood it defileth the land: and the land cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it." Numbers 35:33

According to John Chapter 9, sinners can be born in the flesh again (and their blood can be shed so the land can be cleansed).
