one big rant
This sermon is evidence of how theology can warp a brilliant mind. Mr. Edwards is convinced that all humans are dispicable creatures that deserve hellfire. God, who didn't need to save a soul, decided to have mercy on a few of them. These folk are going to heaven. What happens in heaven? Well, besides meeting the Big Guy in the Sky, we also get a lovely view of the dammned frying in hell. Mr. Edwards says he will leap for joy at the sight of it. Big deal. This sermon is one long rant on God and hellfire. Many have read it in American literature classes, which is where it belongs. Read the sermon for its historical value or for insight into the human religious imagination--nothing more.
