Transcript of "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God"

Let's Try...
Read over each of the following passages and determine whether the author's purpose is to Inform, Persuade, or Entertain.
Author's Purpose
Author's Purpose is the reason why the text was written
Main purposes for writing include:
to inform
to persuade
to entertain
Secondary purposes for writing include:
to explain
to describe
to illustrate
Author's Purpose: To Persuade
It’s the author’s goal to persuade the reader to agree with the author’s opinion. Even though the author shares his opinion, he may provide facts or examples to support the opinion. Example: advertisements, commercials, newspaper editorials, sermons etc.
"Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God"

Author's Purpose: To Inform
It’s the author’s goal to enlighten the reader with topics that are usually real or contain facts. Facts are used to teach, not to persuade. Examples: textbooks, cookbooks, newspapers, encyclopedias, etc
In-Class Activity
Write a two to three paragraph sermon talking a friend out of cheating on a test or skipping school. Think beyond the answer, "because it is wrong to skip school". Explain:
Why is it wrong?
What are the consequences for cheating or skipping school?
Who will you have to answer to? (principal, parent/guardian, teacher, coach, etc.)
What could cheating on a test or skipping school prevent you from doing? (playing a sport, passing a class, hanging out with friends, etc.)

You can use fear tactics like Edwards did or you can go with a more gentle approach.
Author's Purpose:
To Entertain

The author’s goal to tell a story or describe real or imaginary characters, places, and events. Examples: poems, stories, plays, comic strips, etc.
Identify this passage
Primary children in this day and age have far too much time to mess about. They should not be given license to fight, call names and generally cause trouble during school hours. Recent studies have suggested that the benefits of ‘play time’ are very small and that more structured outdoor activities are a better way of giving children exercise and a ‘break’ from lessons. 'Play time’ in school is a waste of time, and it should be stopped. It is ridiculous to think that pupils should waste so much of their school lives. Structured drink and lunch breaks, with organized exercise activities along with longer lessons, are the only ways to stop school children running riot and to focus their minds on their education.
Identify this passage
The Earth is wrapped in a blanket of air called the 'atmosphere', which is made up of several layers of gases. The sun is much hotter than the Earth and it gives off rays of heat (radiation) that travel through the atmosphere and reach the Earth. The rays of the sun warm the Earth, and heat from the Earth then travels back into the atmosphere. The gases in the atmosphere stop some of the heat from escaping into space. These gases are called greenhouse gases and the natural process between the sun, the atmosphere and the Earth is called the 'Greenhouse Effect', because it works the same way as a greenhouse.
Identify This Passage
Sitting at Prim’s knees, guarding her, is the world’s ugliest cat. Mashed-in nose, half of one ear missing, eyes the color of rotting squash. Prim named him Buttercup, insisting that his muddy yellow coat matched the bright flower. He hates me. Or at least distrusts me. Even though it was years ago, I think he still remembers how I tried to drown him in a bucket when Prim brought him home. Scrawny kitten, belly swollen with worms, crawling with fleas. The last thing I needed was another mouth to feed. But Prim
begged so hard, cried even, I had to let him stay. It turned out okay.
Identify This Passage
Students should wear uniforms to school. In a recent study, 90% of the British population surveyed agreed with this notion, for a number of reasons. Students are more easily identifiable when wearing a uniform, intruders in the school can be identified easily, therefore improving student safety in school. Student safety can also be improved by the wearing of uniform while out on school trips, as children are more easily accounted for.
Excerpts from
"Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God"
Exit Slip
You just completed a sermon, what was the purpose of your sermon?
"Your wickedness makes you as it were heavy as lead, and to tend downwards with great weight and pressure towards Hell: and if God should let you go, you would immediately sink and swiftly descend and plunge into the bottomless gulf... for the wrath of God is like great waters that are dammed for the present; they increase more and more, and rise higher and higher... God stands ready to pity you: this is a day of mercy; you may cry now with some encouragement of obtaining mercy. But once the day of mercy is past, your most lamentable (miserable) and dolorous (mournful) cries and shrieks will be in vain... therefore, let everyone that is out of Christ now awake and fly from the wrath to come.
