Sinners in the Hand of an Angry God

Yesterday was the 273rd anniversary of Jonathan Edwards' sermon Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God. This sermon is seen as an important event and exemplar of the preaching during the First Great Awakening, a period of fervent religious revival in the American colonies. Edwards' argument basically establishes that sinners (us) are in danger of the punishment of a just God, and that the only thing that is keeping us from that punishment for the time being is God's own mercy. The solution, as he argues, is to repent of our sins and turn to Christ. Mr. Mandalorian illustrated this in LEGO for a school assignment (I've actually blogged this here before, but heard a news item yesterday about the anniversary and thought it was timely).
