It seems to me that the main section gives an impression of generally trying to be unbiased but actually having an opinion about the subject of the article. See sentences like, for example, "This Elizabethan compromise was opposed by many theologians and preachers who exerted considerable pressure so that, courageously, the church was finally purified from all Roman Catholic doctrines and practices unsupported by the Bible (from this the term Puritanism is mainly drawn)" and the like might contain a certain slant on the subject (note the word 'courageously' and clauses like 'finally purified from... doctrines unsupported by the Bible', ultimately not being fully attributed to a source so far as I can tell, but seeming like a creeping editorialization. Also, the whole last section strikes me as definitely being from a particular point of view on church covenants. Any thoughts, or people being bolder than me on editing the article? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:14, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

I agree that the article, while purporting to be neutral, does contain some partiality and "creeping editorialization"; but despite these provisos it is extremely helpful to this very interested researcher of the subject, and I thank the originator for it.
