Description: This sermon given by Jonathan Edwards over a hundred years ago is a stunner! I surprised myself when I recorded it because the only way to make the King James English come across as clear was to emulate the intensity and emotion with which he originally gave the message. I found myself yelling, gasping for air, and shell shocked by the end of it. What a masterpiece! I'm not suggesting I agree with it, but I acknowledge the skills!
I would imagine he left his congregation so speechless, I doubt they clapped or got up when it was over. They probably just sat there until the usher asked them to leave.
This sermon sparked a revival the likes of which we haven't seen since. And quite frankly, I think it's a message of warning everyone should hear two or three times in their lives.
