4. how does the speaker's comparison of sinners to aninsect (paragraph 7) contribute to the central idea of thetext? o a it emphasizes the negative view god has ofsinners and how inconsequential they are to him. o b it stresses the connection that exists between allof god's creatures, whether they be human orinsect. o c it suggests that sinners can change for the better, as insects are known to go throughtransformations. o d it portrays sinners as being just as prevalentaround the earth as the wide variety of insects.
I would choose this one, it uses the word sinners which is used in the question. we arent given the reading either so we dont know how to answer the question.
B. It stresses the connection that exists between all of God’s creatures, whether they be human or insect.
The speaker's comparison of sinners to an insect in the idea of the text explains the relationship as to how God view human and insects, and how he holds over them and the sinners. These comparisons actually stresses the connection that exists between all of God’s creatures, whether human or insects.
The correct answer is option letter A (It emphasizes the negative view God has of sinners and how inconsequential they are to him.). Taken from the sermon “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” by Jonathan Edwards (1741), the excerpt presented above narrates the comparison between sinners and insects arguing that sinners are as loathsome/worthless/abominable as some mere insects in the view of God. This comparison contributes to the central idea of the text that Hell is real and that the audience should be horrified by the hell that awaits them if they do not take advantage of the chance they are given to confess their sins. In other words, if beings do not confess their sins, they will become as irrelevant as a mere insect.
