An excellent modern presentation of this famous sermon, first preached by Jonathan Edwards in 1741. (Deuteronomy 32:35). An urgent, stern and compassionate call to sinners to repent and believe in Jesus Christ for salvation. It is also an implied challenge to the Body of Christ to share the Gospel with all those who are perishing.

This sermon is an excellent example of faithful preaching of the doctrines of sin and the total depravity of man; man’s urgent need for repentance; and the glorious offer of forgiveness of sins and life eternal by God himself, available to us through the saving death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ. If you hear this sermon and find it repulses you, then perhaps it is for you. If you are unmoved, perhaps it is also for your. For those already saved, this sermon should serve as a humbling reminder of what we have been saved from, and how important it is to be always ready and willing to share with others the reason for the hope we have in Christ.

About Jonathan Edwards, from sermonaudio.com:

JONATHAN EDWARDS was born on October 5, 1703, in East Windsor, Connecticut, into a Puritan evangelical household. His childhood education as well as his undergraduate years (1716-1720) and graduate studies (1721-1722) at Yale College immersed him not only in the most current thought coming out of Europe, such as British empiricism and continental rationalism, but also in the debates between the orthodox Calvinism of his Puritan forebears and the more “liberal” movements that challenged it, such as Deism, Socinianism, Arianism, and especially Anglican Arminianism.
