Johnathan Edwards Sinners in the hand of an Angry God is an inspiring sermon. He passionately narrates the fall of man and reinforces it with literary examples that the target audience at the time can easily relate to. His message is clear and concise and drives the point home. In this sermon, Edwards uses the narrative aim by describing the “anger” that God possesses toward “sinners”; sinners being the target audience he was preaching to. Before examining the examples he uses, one must first understand to who the sermon was directed.
As they look at the cereal one brother says “dumb cereal, it’s supposed to be good for you” and then they agree with each other to give it to Mikey who hates everything. Since Mikey hates everything they think that he will not eat the cereal. They watch with extreme discernment while the younger brother is deciding to try out the cereal. Mikey then digs into the cereal and with excitement the two older brothers yell out “he likes it, hey Mikey!” As soon as the commercial starts ethos becomes immediately apparent with three brothers at a table eating breakfast in a traditional family setting. The commercial proves to the audience that Life cereal is not a repulsive cereal.
How do we know this to be true?”. “ We have a religion that was given to us from our forefathers and has been handed down to our children. We worship in that way. It teaches us to be thankful for all the favors we receive; to love each other, and to be united. We never quarrel about religion.” “Brother, the Great Spirit has made us all, but He had made a great difference between his white and red children.
David tries to steal some of his brother’s breakfast, but both parents tell him off. The audience hears the mother telling David to ‘grow up’ through the use of digetic sound. The mother then gets ready to leave the house and the audience see a CU of her kissing Ben’s head before walking out of the frame. The director then shows a CU of David’s face which seems to display his jealousy, suggesting that Ben is treated better and taken better care of due to his disability. This is re-emphasised when their

I’m glad where able to come under banner one and man of God, because we have different demonstrations and teachings, but were serving one God. We live in a world where individualism is encouraged to the extinct, where we are sometimes forced to consider ourselves separate from one another. That’s why I’m glad I have Bishop James McNeal Jr. in my life. He knows how to bring the people of God together. N.C.F.C.
The Character of Michael Hosea in Francine Rivers Redeeming Love Francine Rivers retells a story of God’s unfailing love as she writes a biblical love story. Michael Hosea the main male character in “Redeeming Love” is a representation of God’s real love for us. Michael Hosea seems to be a quite man and anything but soft.

A proper concept of holiness terminates in the obvious-whatever belongs to a pure and righteous God must correspond with His nature, and be responsive to the uses of a pure and spiritual service.

A character of this nature can only come about through a definite, instantaneous work of grace known to us as
Everything is Not What it Seems Part 1 (Theme): Deception Deception seems to occur on every page of the Summoning of Everyman, printed by John Skot. The play begins with God informing us that Everyman has deceived him by living his life loving riches instead of worshipping and acknowledging the Lord. God sends Death to summon Everyman to his reckoning, and Death informs him that he can bring along whoever or whatever he sees beneficial to him. After Everyman learns this, he begs several people in his life to join him on his journey. They all agree until they find out that Everyman will not be returning.
And this true relationship is one of the main advantages of being human – that we are “a little lower than God and crowned with glory and honor.” (Psalm 8:5) This is proven in John 14 because as Jesus, whose relationship with the Spirit is incomparable, talks of the Spirit, he uses the pronouns he and him – not it. The reason for us to develop our relationship with the Spirit is that he may be with us even more so than God or Jesus. I say this because we know that Jesus ascended into heaven to be with the Father, but the Spirit has been sent to us on earth by Jesus to be our comforter and our guide (John 14:16). He has three main jobs with the church: to teach us the truth, build the church, and help us spread God's love. The Spirit's job in regard to truth is to teach us unknown things about God, for just as no one knows are deep secrets of a person but that person's spirit, so can no one know God's secrets except his Spirit (1 Corinthians 2:11).
