In the second stanza of Blake’s To Tirzah, the speaker makes a reference to the original sin as committed by Adam and Eve. Saying that they originally were doomed to die, “mercy changd [sic] Death into Sleep”, which is a reference to the creation of mortality.

The desire to assist people as much as possible on their individual spiritual paths, with an emphasis on self-discovery is evident in the layout of the church. For instance, a room includes a large Chartres Labyrinth painted in a single path leading to a center and out again, such that people may symbolically walk the spiritual pilgrimage. The reflecting walk also serves to remind us of those who walked great distances hundreds of years past in honor of the teachings of Christ. The path walked is described as "movement is a body prayer through the architecture of the soul. As we move to the centre, healing, transformation and the divine can be known."
The third appeal described in the NMSI paper is logos. Logos is the appeal to the “audience’s logic by constructing a well-reasoned argument” (“Using” 13). In “Sinners”, Edwards uses the audience’s appeal to logic by stating facts or common sense. He appeals to the unconverted’s sense of intelligence in saying “it would be dreadful to suffer this fierceness and wrath of Almighty God one moment; but you must suffer to it all eternity” if they do not choose to follow God (Edwards 43). Edwards also says “all you that were never born again, and made new creatures, and raised from being dead in sin. .

Smith presents an excellent reminder to preachers that their duty must be to respect God’s word and unite it with his assembly. The preacher must let the scripture characterize the doctrine and express it in a manner that influences the hearer. Doctrine eventually must inspire our living.
