An interesting sermon in its definite fierce intensity, I'll give you that.

Glad I don't have a God like that. He sounds mean.

I remember reading this when I was studying the Puritans. I can imagine how effective it must have been, because fear is a good tool. Great imagery in that sermon as well.

I read this a few months ago while studying the Puritans also. It is frightening, but I'm sure that made it all the more effective, and it is put together very well.

AMEN to that!  My God is a loving, forgiving God.  He's jealous if you worship anything but Him but He's full love and forgiveness. innocent.gif

darn, I love reading posts in here, but it will be nice if you could extract the best parts of that page...It's kinda long and people tend to pass on to another thread...

I bet the sermon on the following week had to do with coughing up more money as the plate went by!

CODE
The God that holds you over the pit of hell, much as one holds a spider, or some loathsome insect over the fire, abhors you, and is dreadfully provoked: his wrath towards you burns like fire; he looks upon you as worthy of nothing else, but to be cast into the fire; he is of purer eyes than to bear to have you in his sight; you are ten thousand times more abominable in his eyes, than the most hateful venomous serpent is in ours.

I think this portion was pretty effective. Comparing you to a loathsome bug.
