This sermon, preached by Jonathan Edwards at the church at Enfield Conneticut, on July 8, 1741, has as its text Deuteronomy 32:35 'They shall slide in due time.' Edwards described in this message the position of the Israelites under the sentence of condemnation by God for sin. He described how, e…ven though they were indeed condemned, and God was not lacking in power, they were not yet fallen to destruction because of the grace of God which gave them opportunity to repent and change their ways before it was too late. Secondly, in drawing a specific application to the people to whom he was preaching, he applied this same situation to them as was well known, that, even though spiritual revival had swept through neighboring towns, Enfield was untouched and the people of Enfield were largely indifferent and did not care if it came there or not. Edwards described that, even though God's judgment had not fallen, it could at any time, and would certainly fall on any who persisted in unbelief, despite having had numerous and clear opportunity to hear the Gospel truth and repent. Thus, even though there is a clear presentation of the ever present possibility of judgment, there is a clear call to the repentance which will avert that judgment. (MORE)

Jonathan Edwards used a spider on s string being held above theflames. It was a picture of God keeping the sinner out of Hell.
What kept sinners from falling into hell is that we all believed what Jesus Christ has done for us, which was He died on the cross to save us from sin. Our identities used to be "sinners", but if you believe in Christ and what He has done for us, we are identified as "in Christ." Through that, we wa…nt to live to glorify Him daily. The Blood of Christ was shed for us. He took on the sins of the world and mine and yours. Believe in Gods gift to us. It's really very simple and the only way to live forever.

God is good to those who trust Him and terrible to those who do not. (MORE)
Get saved or go to Hell. Hell is not meant for humans, but many force it upon themself. It is my duty as a Christian to attempt to prevent that, not crush people's toes.

In sinner in the hands of an angry god what was the concept of the relationship between God and man?
God will still love him ( make sure u spell god : God cuz god means idol god) but anyway god will still love him but it will be your job to get closer :)
This question is basically the concept of theodicy. Theodicy isthe attempt to answer the question of why a good God permits themanifestation of evil. In classical Western religion, God isomnibenevolent, omnipotent, and omniscient, which makes theterrible things that happen on earth very confusing if… you believethis. How can God be omnibenevolent and allow genocide and naturaldisasters? Many people have tried to answer this question, andpeople have even had to redefine God's powers to explain the evilsof the world. The most common answer to this question is that Godhas a plan, and the things we percieve as evil will eventually makesense. . Additional Comments: I appreciate the clarity and concise and logic of this answer! MayI add that the thought that God enjoy human suffering is contraryto everything else we know (the little that we know) about God'screation. No right mind human being would enjoy seeing other peoplesuffer. How could God be any less? But that still leave us with thebig question why God allows so much suffering. The answer is muchsimpler that most people realize. Just ask these two simplequestions. What happen to humanity in the presence of greatsuffering? And what happen to humanity in the presence of peace andabundance? We all know the answers. Humanity becomes more like Godin the presence of suffering and on the contrary humanity becomesdepraved in the presence of abundance. Only and only throughsuffering can humanity appreciate the depth of God's love andbecome more like Him. (MORE)

In his sermon, Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God , John Edwards described humanity as being attracted to Hell much in the same way objects are attracted to the earth, i.e. by gravity. In other words, Edwards said that the natural tendency of any human soul would be to fall straight into Hell.

He describes us as needing to cling to God to prevent our fall into Hell. . It should be noted that this response is only a brief look at Edwards' theology, and probably an oversimplication. (MORE)
