Sinners Follow Up Post

When Jonathan Edwards gave this shocking sermon, it was the mid-1700s.  Now, nearly 270 years later, it is curious for most to think of what it would be like if this sermon was first introduced today.  Back then, everyone was religious, and it was all the same religion for the most part.  Currently in the world there are atheists and there are non-Christians, so this would be a big factor because there would not be as many people who are necessarily affected by this.  As a result, something like “the Great Awakening” might not have taken place.  In fact people might just think that Jonathan Edwards is nothing but absolutely out of his mind.  Then again with this technology word would spread fast, it would not take as long because Edwards would not have to go to every town and city to make his point.  Instead people would find out before he could even start his sermon again.  Taking all these into factor, in this day and age the people would have reacted less scared and frightened to “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God”.
