Only those who remained blameless and free of sin would reach God’s presence. Salvation in the Old Testament is viewed primarily as a means of going to heaven, which calls for obedience of Gods commandments to be worth before Him. Although this is similar to the New Testament, the New Testament mainly emphasizes on deliverance from sin through Jesus Christ, the son of God, who died to redeem his people from sin and its consequences. Salvation in the Old Testament was mainly based on faith in God (Kärkkäinen 63). For instance, God considered Abraham, who was faithful to him, as a man through whom he would raise a great generation that would please and obey Him.
It is explained that God is the only one who is able to save people from going to Hell. Edwards wants people to imagine how evil and distressed life would be without Gods love and mercy. He explains that to not burn in Hell people need to ask for forgiveness from God, experience Gods mercy, and continuously practice the Lords word. Edwards really lets the message of “Gods wrath” sink into our minds to show how mighty, powerful, and capable the Lord is.

A major similarity that I found in Genesis and Gilgamesh is who they picked to save from the Flood. In Genesis, God picked Noah because Noah worshiped God and stood beside him. It clearly states, “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord” Noah saw the good in God and what he was doing. God trusted him and his well-being to build the ark and take control of it. God wanted Noah on the Earth because he saw no evil in him unlike the rest of mankind.
Why should Christ died for all when He foreknow and predestined that the atonement would only be effective for some people? God foreknown how we would respond and how we would use our free will and yet why does He still decided to atone those whose heart would not be budged toward Him later? I get the impression that God want to give all of us the same opportunity of salvation because all of us is the same according to God, all of us are His image and creation, and the fulfillment of the salvation will depend on our respond to His calling. So is it possible for the pronounced believers to be the unintended object of salvation plan all along? There is still some part that remain unsolved for me and I am still trying to seek for the
John Winthrop uses Tenets of Calvinism in his writings by "and so teaches us to put a difference between Christians and others. ' Do good to all, especially those of the household of faith'. Winthrop shows total depravity in that he recognizes the difference between sinners and Christians using his beliefs that man was born sinful.
