Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Explain this passage using the RAGE + C concept: Question: What is Jonathan Edward's belief in the wrath of God and judgement (water and fury) from this passage?The wrath of God is like great waters that are dammed for the present; they increase more and more, and rise higher and higher, till an outlet is given; and the longer the stream is stopped, the more rapid and mighty is its course, when once it is let loose. It is true, that judgment against your evil works has not been executed hitherto; the floods of God’s vengeance have been withheld; but your guilt in the mean time is constantly increasing, and you are every day treasuring up more wrath; the waters are constantly  rising,  and  waxing more and more mighty; and there is nothing but the mere pleasure of God, that holds the waters back, that are unwilling to be stopped, and press hard to go forward. If God should only withdraw his hand from the flood-gate, it would immediately fly open, and the fiery floods of the fierceness and wrath of God, would rush forth with inconceivable fury,  and would come upon you with omnipotent power; and if your strength were ten thousand times greater than it is, yea, ten thousand times greater than the strength of the stoutest, sturdiest devil in hell, it would be nothing to withstand or endure it.

    Explanation
    The use of a biblical quotation at the end of Edwards's sermon strengthens his argument by associating it with an authority respected by the audience. By quoting from the Bible, Edwards is appealing to the religious beliefs and values of the audience, as the Bible is considered a sacred text and a source of divine authority. This helps to lend credibility to Edwards's argument and make it more persuasive to the audience.

    A. Is often angry and vengeful
    Explanation
    Edwards presents God as often angry and vengeful, suggesting that God is quick to anger and seeks revenge on those who have wronged Him. This portrayal of God implies a sense of wrath and punishment for those who do not follow His commandments. It suggests that God's emotions are often negative and that He is not hesitant in expressing His anger towards humanity.

    • B.

    • C.

      Ugliness in God's eyes

    A. Powerlessness in comparison to God
    Explanation
    Edwards compares each of his listeners to "a spider or some loathsome insect held over the fire" to emphasize the powerlessness of human beings in comparison to God. This metaphor suggests that just as a spider or insect has no control or ability to escape when held over a fire, humans are similarly powerless and insignificant in the face of God's immense power and authority. It highlights the vast difference in strength and control between humans and God, emphasizing the need for humility and submission to God's will.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    All of the following are images used by Jonathan Edwards to scare his audience EXCEPT

    • A.

      A bow and arrow ready to pierce one's heart

    • B.

      Flood waters held back by God's hand

    • C.

      A wide, gaping canyon

    • D.

      A lake of burning brimstone

    Correct Answer
    C. A wide, gaping canyon
    Explanation
    Jonathan Edwards used vivid and terrifying imagery in his sermons to scare his audience into repentance and salvation. The images he used were meant to invoke fear and a sense of impending doom. A bow and arrow ready to pierce one's heart symbolizes the immediate danger and the potential for sudden death. Flood waters held back by God's hand represent the power of God to unleash destruction and judgment. A lake of burning brimstone signifies the eternal torment and punishment awaiting sinners in hell. However, a wide, gaping canyon does not fit the theme of immediate danger or divine judgment, and therefore it is not an image used by Jonathan Edwards to scare his audience.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Toward the end of the sermon, Edwards's tone shifts from

    • A.

      Sorrowful to joyous

    • B.

      Frightening to hopeful

    • C.

      Joyous to resentful

    • D.

      Sympathetic to bitter

    Correct Answer
    B. Frightening to hopeful
    Explanation
    In the sermon, Edwards initially adopts a sorrowful tone as he describes the terrifying consequences of sin and the impending wrath of God. However, as the sermon progresses, his tone shifts to a more hopeful one. He starts to offer his audience a glimmer of hope by emphasizing the possibility of redemption and salvation through repentance. This change in tone from frightening to hopeful reflects Edwards's intention to instill fear in his listeners initially, but ultimately guide them towards a path of redemption and spiritual renewal.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    What is the central message of the sermon?

    • A.

      There is no hope for salvation.

    • B.

      The only hope for salvation is in good deeds.

    • C.

      The only hope for salvation is through Christian rebirth.

    • D.

      Sinners can save their souls through constant prayer.

    Correct Answer
    C. The only hope for salvation is through Christian rebirth.
    Explanation
    The central message of the sermon is that the only hope for salvation is through Christian rebirth. This means that the speaker is emphasizing the belief that individuals can only be saved and achieve salvation by accepting Jesus Christ as their savior and being born again in a spiritual sense. This message suggests that good deeds and constant prayer are not sufficient for salvation, but rather a personal transformation and acceptance of Christian beliefs are necessary.

    After reading Jonathan Edward's piece of literature, the reader will find himself or herself pondering the idea of sin and the underworld. John Edward's sermon was undoubtedly one of the greatest persuasive pieces of literature ever written.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Nothing can even be used to compare the sense of ruthless honesty that John Edwards sought in his sermon. Not only does the audience feel almost ashamed of their wrongdoings, they begin to feel sympathetic and empathetic to all those around them who may be just as guilty of sin as they are. Words and images such as "hot" and "treacherous" give even the most innocent person a sense of fear. There is no argument as to whether or not Jonathan Edward's succeeded in his attempts to draw his community closer together through his sermon. After listening to the brutal honesty and insight from John, most people left the sermon feeling as though they were indebted to God. Jonathan Edward could have very well written the most persuasive piece of literature known to man.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The passage describes how John Edwards sought to create a sense of ruthless honesty in his sermon, making the audience feel ashamed of their wrongdoings and sympathetic towards others who may also be guilty of sin. The use of words and images like "hot" and "treacherous" instills fear even in innocent individuals. The passage also states that there is no argument about whether Jonathan Edwards succeeded in bringing his community closer through his sermon. Based on this information, it can be inferred that the statement "Jonathan Edward could have very well written the most persuasive piece of literature known to man" is true.

    Correct Answer

    Correct Answer
    if it were not for God’s restraints.
    Explanation
    Jonathan Edwards is suggesting that wicked individuals have evil tendencies within their souls that are so intense that they would immediately ignite and manifest as hellfire if it were not for God's restraints.

    Explanation
    Jonathan Edwards is stating that neither an individual's own prudence and care to protect their own life, nor the care of others to protect them, can guarantee their safety even for a moment. In other words, no matter how cautious and careful someone is, or how much others may try to protect them, they are still vulnerable to the uncertainties and dangers of life.

    Explanation
    The given answer correctly completes Jonathan Edwards' thoughts by stating that the foolish children of men delude themselves in their own schemes and have confidence in their own strength and wisdom. They trust in nothing but a shadow, implying that their trust is misplaced and based on something that is not substantial or real. This suggests that Edwards believes that human beings often deceive themselves and rely on false beliefs or illusions rather than seeking true wisdom and understanding.

    Correct Answer
    till he believes in Christ, God is under no manner of obligation to keep him a moment from eternal destruction.
    Explanation
    The given answer explains that until a natural man believes in Christ, God is not obligated to protect him from eternal destruction. This implies that salvation and protection from damnation are dependent on one's faith in Christ. The quote suggests that no matter how much effort a person puts into religion or how many prayers they make, it is only through belief in Christ that they can be saved. Without this belief, God has no obligation to intervene and save them from eternal destruction.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is the continuation of Jonathan Edward's thoughts, specifically referring to the concept of a "lake of burning brimstone" that is extended abroad under the unconverted individuals in the congregation. This suggests that the purpose of discussing this awful subject is to awaken and warn those who are not yet converted to Christ about the potential consequences of their actions and beliefs.

    Correct Answer
    but look at other things, as the good state of your bodily constitution, your care of your own life, and the means you use for your own preservation.
    Explanation
    The answer is a continuation of Jonathan Edwards' thoughts, explaining that people often attribute their protection from hell to other factors such as their physical health, self-preservation, and personal efforts, rather than recognizing the hand of God in their salvation.

    Explanation
    The given answer completes Jonathan Edward's thoughts by explaining that if God were to release the person from his control, they would instantly fall into hell. It emphasizes that no matter how healthy, careful, or righteous the person may be, their efforts would be futile in preventing their descent into hell, just as a spider's web would be ineffective in stopping a falling rock.

    Correct Answer
    and groan when they are abused to purposes so directly contrary to their nature and end.
    Explanation
    God's creatures are good, and were made for men to serve God with, and do not willingly subserve to any other purpose, and groan when they are abused to purposes so directly contrary to their nature and end. This means that all of God's creations have a purpose and were intended to be used in service to God. They do not willingly serve any other purpose and express their dissatisfaction when they are misused for purposes that go against their inherent nature and intended purpose.

    Correct Answer
    full of the dreadful storm, and big with thunder; and were it not for the restraining hand of God, it would immediately burst forth upon you.
    Explanation
    The given answer accurately completes the remaining portion of Jonathan Edwards' thoughts. It describes the black clouds as being "full of the dreadful storm, and big with thunder." The phrase suggests that a severe and terrifying punishment is imminent. Additionally, the answer states that if it were not for God's restraining hand, the punishment would immediately be unleashed. This implies that God's mercy and intervention are the only things preventing the impending wrath from being unleashed upon the people.

    The wrath of God is like great waters that are dammed for the present; they increase more and more, and rise higher and higher, (type in the remaining portion of Jonathan Edwards' quote) (page 6). 

    Correct Answer
    till an outlet is given; and the longer the stream is stopped, the more rapid and mighty is its course, when once it is let loose.
    Explanation
    The wrath of God is compared to great waters that are dammed, which means that it is held back or restrained for a period of time. However, the longer it is held back, the more it builds up in intensity and strength. Once an outlet is given and the wrath is unleashed, it becomes even more powerful and unstoppable, just like a stream that has been stopped for a long time and then suddenly released. This analogy emphasizes the idea that God's wrath, if not restrained indefinitely, will eventually be unleashed with great force.

    Correct Answer

    Correct Answer
    whose wrath is provoked and incensed as much against you, as against many of the damned in hell.
    Explanation
    The quote from Jonathan Edwards suggests that sinners are in great danger and are being held over a furnace of wrath. The remaining portion of the quote explains that this wrath is provoked and incensed as much against sinners as it is against the damned in hell. This implies that God's anger towards sinners is just as intense as it is towards those who have already been condemned to hell.

    Our next pieces in class are, "The Minister's Veil" and "The Scarlet Letter" Read the passage below and check all boxes that describe Nathaniel Hawthorne. Nathaniel Hawthorne (born Nathaniel Hathorne; July 4, 1804 – May 19, 1864) was an American novelist and short story writer.He was born in 1804 in Salem, Massachusetts to Nathaniel Hathorne and the former Elizabeth Clarke Manning. His ancestors include John Hathorne, the only judge involved in the Salem witch trials who never repented of his actions. Nathaniel later added a "w" to make his name "Hawthorne" in order to hide this relation. He entered Bowdoin College in 1821, was elected to Phi Beta Kappa in 1824,[1] and graduated in 1825. Hawthorne published his first work, a novel titled Fanshawe, in 1828; he later tried to suppress it, feeling it was not equal to the standard of his later work.[2] He published several short stories in various periodicals which he collected in 1837 as Twice-Told Tales. The next year, he became engaged to Sophia Peabody. He worked at a Custom House and joined Brook Farm, a transcendentalist community, before marrying Peabody in 1842. The couple moved to The Old Manse in Concord, Massachusetts, later moving to Salem, the Berkshires, then to The Wayside in Concord. The Scarlet Letterwas published in 1850, followed by a succession of other novels. A political appointment took Hawthorne and family to Europe before their return to The Wayside in 1860. Hawthorne died on May 19, 1864, and was survived by his wife and their three children.Much of Hawthorne's writing centers on New England, many works featuring moral allegories with a Puritan inspiration. His fiction works are considered part of the Romantic movement and, more specifically, Dark romanticism. His themes often center on the inherent evil and sin of humanity, and his works often have moral messages and deep psychological complexity. His published works include novels, short stories, and a biography of his friend Franklin Pierce.
