    Jonathon Edwards knew what he intended to be understood when writing his sermon "Sinners in the hands of an angry God." He makes the audience of the eighteenth century grasp onto their chairs and look away in fear of the sight or sound of hell. He wants to make sure the audience is aware of heaven and hell, so they may achieve the "right one." Edwards scares the audience to believe that God can do away with them at any second. He uses dramatic comparisons to show the wrath of God....

Jonathan Edwards in his fiery sermon “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” exasperates conviction for the eyes of the sinners. Edwards utilizes figurative language, tone, and imagery to manipulate his sinful congregation into repentance. Repentance is depicted in the sermon through Edward’s use of figurative language. He prodigiously compares...

  • Could the existence of Hell as a place of eternal punishment be morally justified?
    Hell has been used throughout the centuries by religion as the place where all those who do not enter heaven will be sent, to face punishment for all their sins. However, there is a problem associated with the existence of hell, especially if the idea that there is a morally perfect theistic god is proposed. The idea that there is an irreversible hell where people can be sent would be incompatible with the theistic god, for primarily the fact that no matter what the sin has been, the core...
