After earning his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1603 at the tender age of 17, Cotton went on to earn a Master of Arts in 1606. Immediately after receiving his master’s degree, he was appointed as a tutor at Cambridge’s Emmanuel College, where he rapidly moved up through the ranks to the position of head lecturer. During this period, Cotton experienced a spiritual awakening after hearing a sermon by the Puritan minister and theologian Richard Sibbes, and he converted to Puritanism.
But Cotton promised they would continue and eventually bring us to unspeakable joy. A Family Tragedy and a Spiritual Crisis From statements she made later in Massachusetts Bay, it is evident that Anne Hutchinson was immediately drawn to John Cotton’s distinctive views regarding how conversion occurs and how an individual can know whether he or she has truly been saved. She was particularly attracted to Cotton’s emphasis on conversion as a highly mystical and emotional event, rather than a primarily intellectual process for which Christians could prepare through scriptural study, good deeds, and pious thoughts.
The idea that a believer could actively prepare himself to receive God’s saving grace and find assurance of his Elect status in his ability to live a sanctified (holy) life had become widely accepted among the Puritan clergy and laity (nonclergy) by the early 1600s. In the wake of her spiritual crisis regarding her own Elect status, however, Anne had come to see the doctrines of preparation and sanctification as dangerous departures from the covenant of grace, in which God promised his saving grace to undeserving sinners in return for Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross.
