Nwoye didn't feel comfortable near his father but feared. He says that hope and compassion in Mr.Brown, was their main circumstances that caused Nwoye to convert as he seemed compassionate.

Sometimes it is easy to take the gift of salvation for granite, which is why we should review how and why it was given to us. The sermon “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God,” was so effective because it showed people who they really are. The sermon opened people’s eyes to where they were spiritually, how powerful God truly is, and the things He can do but chooses not to. The sermon described how we are all born sinners and deserve to go to hell.
It was during the Great Awakening, when powerful preachers like Jonathan Edwards decided to intensify their ways of broadcasting their religious seriousness. The idea of secularism and religious neglect had been the cause for this religious movement. In his sermon, from Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God, Edwards used strategies to guilt, persuade, and redirect the “sinners” into conversion, and to give a wakeup call to those who overemphasize their own worthiness as holy citizens. Throughout his sermon, Edwards used a variety of figurative language like imagery, metaphors, personification, and allusions to reveal his attitude towards “sinners” as unworthy and insignificant in the eyes of God, and his attitude towards God as being enraged
Sinners in the hands of an angry God. In Jonathan Edward’s Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God, he tries to tell the colonist of Massachusetts and the people in his congregation that they cannot take their life and success for granted but that each day they are fighting to keep their souls up from what he calls “hellfire”. This has a reaction to the people to a period known as the Great Awakening. The Great Awakening has been know as time where people gain religious interest and practice these interest by going to church and not believing in predestination .
The message of Cranach's Law and Gospel is to portray that kind acts and good faith could lead one's soul to heaven. He trying to convey to his viewers because church and religion were making a big change during this era and people worried about their salvation. He also wanted to show how people were judged in the eyes of God and how God grants Mercy to his children. To Cranach, God was almighty and able to forgive sinners, to forgive all of us. Cranach wanted to inspire hope and belief in
3. King uses biblical figures and events to help the reader better understand him. King is a Christian and this helps with showing authority. Basically any of the references that king makes to religion are appealing to pathos because they show emotion.
The directors want to show us how the pursuit of their ideals actually end up meaning more to them than their lives, leaving their ears to be closed off to other options and ideas. The directors know the importance of a priest being shunned as it emphasizes the intensity of their ideals. These characters are so engrossed with their task, words that could possibly comfort or even guide The Good and The Bad towards a brighter path are completely ignored. This ignorance can be found in Julian
Often in Sermons ministers/pastors persuade their audience to behave in a spiritual or moral fashion. Such is the case in “Sinners in the hands of an angry God” by Johnathan Edwards where he says “sinners should repent for their sins or burn in the eternal pit of hell. If sinners repent, they will receive eternal life.” God destroys sinners, but is merciful to the repentant. Edwards wanted to impact his audience by appealing to the fears pity and vanity.
John Winthrop’s “A Model of Christian Charity” showed that the people valued their God most importantly for their God was their only hope in surviving in a new environment. Jonathan Edwards’ “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” was said very seriously and was taken seriously by the people who listened to the sermon. Edwards focused on a lot towards how sinners will be punished by God and will suffer an eternal punishment if they did not change their ways. Qualities shown were very serious and religious to achieve a well functioning society. George Washington’s Rules of Civility were also serious and showed that people must show the qualities of honesty, respectfulness, and self discipline.
“Sinners in The Hands of an Angry God” is a appall sermon. Jonathan Edwards is motivated to make this speech so dramatic because he is talking about the Mighty God. He is also motivated because he wants to tell people what happens when you are a sinner. When you are talking about our God you should use all of you energy and might to talk about our Lord. The tools that he uses to keep his listeners focused is his voice.
Jonathan Edwards version of God was very aggressive and unforgiving. Insult after continuing insult, this does not seem like the Jesus Christ with the wonderful forgiving spirit. With the words, “God hates you,” repeated multiple times throughout the sermon, it is truly hypocritical that the God described as forgiving and loving of all would say “I hate you,” every five minutes. I personally feel like this is not the way God would like to be described, and that God would much rather liked to be showed as a forging and gentle spirit.
His sermons were made to serve as a wake-up call for those who dismissed God’s magnificence while exaggerating their own value as decent, hard-working individuals. Edwards strongly believed that only a sincere conversion is required for a person to join a church. Preachers like Edwards wanted not only to address their congregations’ intelligence but also to engage their emotions so as to convince them of the weight of their iniquity and motivate them to seek salvation from the wrath they could expect from a powerful God. The results were encouraging as revival was spreading throughout the colonies, but one congregation in Enfield, Connecticut, seemed to be resistant to the call for radical conversion. In response, Edwards was invited to preach there.
In 1741, the Theologian delivered the sermon, Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God to a small congregation of people, yet it started an uprising in the theology of the Great Awakening. He wanted to install fear of hell, and to tell everyone to repent to God for forgiveness. In the sermon, Edwards uses language that uses words or expressions with a meaning that is different from the literal interpretation, or otherwise known as figurative language.
