Final Answer

What's the difference between puritans and separatists?Explain the significance in the colonies

Puritans

Were not radical enough to want to split away from the Church of England. They wanted to reform it from within.

Puritans completely opposed the way in which the English churches functioned and they struggled to make changes to it. They believed that religious schools and the practices resulted in corruption; even in the worship of God. Therefore, Puritans believed that people should start following purer forms to worship God.

Puritans were interested to remain a part of England and to work for biblical reformation by remaining there. They declared themselves as English, even after their migration to New England. They wanted their new colony to be a biblical witness setting an example of the right kind of religious practices, and wanted to set an example for Old England and for the entire world.

Separatists

Did want to form a separate church. They felt that the Church of England was too far gone and that it was not possible to save it.

Separatists totally opposed the racial refinement and genocide. The people with more power exploited the weaker class economically. The separatists completely opposed this economic exploitation, and they tried through all their actions to put a stop to this unfair exploitation.

The Separatists aimed at achieving reformation without tarrying, though they were aware that it could separate them from the church and the nation. They also declared themselves as English, but aimed at innovative political and religious identity.
