I am so powerful i can decide where to send you, but you need to obey me.
THE INFLUENCE PEOPLE HAD ON EACH OTHER
"Unconverted men are now the objects of that very same anger and wrath of God, that is expressed in the torments of hell"
God is so powerful... i need to spread this information too.
God was such a big influence that people got scared when they heard him. He had a lot of power on people even though scientifically he doesn't and did not exist.
We have no food but we have God by our side, and as long as our belief to him is strong, then we shall be safe in heaven.
Writers, people, and society influenced one another. And people were brainwashed saying that God can send you to hell if you were not converted.
It is everlasting wrath. It would be dreadful to suffer this fierceness and wrath of Almighty God one moment: but you must suffer it to all eternity
Hell was a scary place back then. Whatever you did you would have to think about hell and God. You had to worship God in order not to be in Hell. Edwards describes God as a brutal leader as well because if people did one wrong thing, you would go to hell.
If you ever steal again, God will send you to hell!
God was all they had back then, and religion was one of the main things. People depended on God, and believed he could change their life.
They brainwashed children from a little age. So that when they grew older their faith in God would be stronger.
The society was so depended on God that they always used him for either showing good influence or bad.
