  • Jonathan Edwards God Holds You Over The Pit Of Hell Analysis

    where it is stated, “God that holds you over the pit of hell, much as one holds a spider or some loathsome insect over a fire.” (paragraph 1) In this analogy Edwards is bringing back the idea of predestination --which was abandoned during the enlightenment-- in effort to demonstrate that God can easily determine whether the audience is going to heaven or hell. “God holds you over the pit of hell…” evokes a sense of urgency to the audience by implying they need to revert back to traditional ways of religion now, in order to avoid the near coming condemnation from an angry God. In addition to the first, Edwards uses another analogy when he says, “your destruction would come like a whirlwind, and you would be like the chaff on the summer threshing floor.” (paragraph 4) This analogy effectively shows the power of the self-inflicted destruction and the vulnerability of the audience; however, the sermon also emphasizes that their destruction and vulnerability is avoidable through repentance. The purpose of his use of analogies throughout the excerpt is to evoke fear and declare the strength of God to persuade the audience to repent. To continue, Edwards also uses imagery to persuade his congregation to repent. Edwards says, “if God should withdraw his hand they would avail no more to keep [them] from falling, than the thin air to hold up a person suspended in it.”(paragraph 2) His replacement of thin air instead of air, exaggerates the inability of air to keep you from falling.…

  • Who Was Paul Contradicting Himself?

    Paul refused to bend basic Christian principles simply to accommodate an ancient cultural mooring of the early Jerusalem Church.

In the mission field, Paul applied the gospel without compromise, but with love and sensitivity. Similar to Jesus, Paul saved his boldest assertions and…

  • Go Tell It On The Mountain Summary

    One of the things that I found in the book was that it was a loosely based autobiography on James Baldwin’s life. Like Baldwin, I myself grew up attending a Pentecostal church, so while I was reading the story there were things that Baldwin talks about when he mentions the church that I understood. The perfect example was when Baldwin talks about storefront churches; even though I didn’t attend one, I have been to multiple, so I found it very interesting that there are things that were in my…
