Edwards Relationship With God

Decent Essays
Edwards had a vigorous relationship with God. He prayed 5 times a day, and often had “secret conversations with God (p403)” that lasted for hours. Edwards explored more with practices and personal connection with God, than the Puritans. Who referenced the Old and New Testament to validated statements, than with personal experience, which Edwards explicitly does. Edwards occasionally drifted away from God, especially at the beginning of college, but then reverted back to religious practices on his own terms. Oppositely, the Puritan followed a strict mandatory contract with God.
