"The Justice of God in the Damnation of Sinners" was published in 1738 and is a discourse on why it is just for God to render a harsh judgment towards mankind. Jonathan Edwards explores how we stand as sinners before God and that God is under no obligation to us. The APPLICATION involves a review of one’s life and if God treated people how they acted toward God it would be much worse than God’s marvelous love toward us.
