Sinners By Jonathan Edwards Envision living in the day of the Puritans Living in a land where everything is new and exciting There is the freedom of speech and religion But some chose not to believe in the divine religion the religion of believing in a higher power or in some cases God Jonathan Edwards had a lot to say to those who chose not to believe in that awesome power the power of God Jonathan Edwards wants to frighten the Puritans into following a more righteous path In the passage that Edwards writes he says Men are held in the hand of God over the pit of Hell in this direct quote Edwards is trying to say the Puritans are going to hell unless they follow the more righteous path This is a good quote because it tells how Edwards feels about the path and how he thinks that everyone is going to fall into the blazing pit of Hell Edwards wants to get his point across to the non-believers and in doing so he feels that he must frighten them into following that path he uses a lot of metaphors similes hyperboles and personification in doing this Edwards says in one simile that he wrote Your wickedness makes you as it were heavy as lead in this simile Edwards says that the Puritans are evil without Christ they are heavy and falling into hell because they dont believe The simile expresses how Edwards feels about the people who are without Christ he thinks that they are wicked and he shows how strongly he feels about the religion and the non-believers In the next quote Edwards says The Devil is waiting for them Hell is gaping for them in this personification Edwards is saying that hell is just waiting for the non-believers to fall into the trap that hell is waiting to pull them into its grasp
