Why Did the Pilgrims Leave England?

Answer

The Pilgrims left England for religious reasons because they believed that they were true Christians, determined to purify the Christian church and return to a scripture-based service. Pilgrim groups of Puritans gathered on their own until the English parliament outlawed independent congregations. Due to living under the constant threat of imprisonment or even execution, they were forced to flee after three years.
