This disorientation is diabolical," she wrote, and "it is sad that so many people let themselves be dominated by the diabolical wave sweeping over the world! And they are blinded to the point where they are incapable of seeing error! Their principal fault is that they have abandoned prayer.

This pope is not physically in Dante’s Hell, because he was not yet dead at the time he was writing the poem. However, to Dante, Pope Boniface VIII was one of the most corrupt and fraudulent because he led a false perception of wanting to make peace.

In the NMSI chart, pathos is defined as appealing to the "audience 's emotions" and can "evoke anger, laughter, sadness, fear, joy, pride, etc." ("Using" 13). In the sermon, this is the primary appeal that Edwards uses to influence the unconverted.

To see so many others feasting while you are pining and perishing [in hell]..."(Edwards 44).
God has a right to be angry at the human world. Humans make mistakes left and right, but we don’t sin in purpose. God forgives us for our sins, but the Author of “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” said something different. Jonathan Edwards told many that even the smallest sin, even a sin that can easily be set right, deserves the same punishment as killing someone.
“Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God”: Text Analysis In the sermon “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God”, Jonathan Edwards proclaims that without God’s courageous heart and belief in each and every one of us, we would all be suffering in the furnace of Hell, accompanying the devil. He makes this known by using many occurrences of imagery, and metaphors; Edwards’s style of writing and frightening diction also assists in getting his point across to the audience. Edward’s sermon, reaching out to all religious followers, helps to comprehend the faith and wrath that God possesses. Edward uses the metaphor “…the arrow made ready on the string, and justice bends the arrow at your heart.”
His sermon and Bradstreet’s poem are alike in their ability to show eternal life and the prizes and consequences of following and putting your faith into God. Bradstreet shows the consequences of sin by using a subtle interpretation to go back to righteous ways, Edwards on the other hand is very aggressive in the way he shows the price of sin and to “persuade” un pure puritans back to christ. He is very detailed in the way he speaks on hellfire and pain. Both writers attempt to draw back puritans and to show the cost of sin in two different ways. Both writers show the eternal life given to them good or bad , sinful or righteous.
