Jonathan Edwards In Hand Of Angry God Analysis

Satisfactory Essays
During the 1741, there were many opinions on God as during this time was know as the enlightenment period. In the sermon, ¨Sinners in hand of angry god¨ by Jonathan Edwards he delivers a sermon in a frighten tone. As many in this time did not see god with importance as science was over running the ideas of god. Jonathan Edward says, ¨ [one] day wherein many are flocking to him¨(Edward 125). Jonathan is trying to state that when science fails many will go to god even though they have shrugged him off before. His tone of words shows us that he takes this topic seriously and doesn't want to use to be playing around. For example, “why you have not dropped into hell since you arose in the morning , but that's God's hand has held you”(Edward 123).
