Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God
The story of “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” is written in the new world by a reverend for a Protestants church. He wrote this to bring fear into the hearts and minds of sinners and none believers to try to get them to convert and come back to God. He believes mankind was moving away and becoming a world of sinners and that would become evil and greedy. The reverend that tried to scare people was kind of successful but also kicked the people out of the mass that were converted to let the sinners and none believers in. The comparioson to some of the other cultures that try to relate to this story can relate because most people worship the same God, and have almost the same history.
The literature in this story is very similar to European writing because the peoples in the new world came from Europe and share some of the same culture. The freedom of religion is one of them they share a common God that they can relate. But the fear from this story is quite unique most people don’t see heaven and hell I this way so when people first read it the fear stuck in their hearts. This made them think is he right? Could God just drop us in the fires of hell? Although this is a theory of something that could happen most of them didn’t take a chance and converted.
The history behind the story is different because most areas of the world can kind of and kind of not relate to this. Some worship many gods so this excludes them in the way they see things in the afterlife. The closest people besides the colonist are probably the British. They are the ones who really brought the religion over to the new world when the people left. The God they worship is the same the religion is the same and the people are very similar in the way they act and their culture.
This story was written before the Great Awakening Era of American literature. This Era was similar to the Enlightenment Era in Great Britain. Both of these were religious...
