There is no new theology.
There are new books published every month. Under all the cultivations of heaven, they brought forth bitter and poisonous fruit; as in the two verses next preceding the text.
The expression I have chosen for my text, Their foot shall slide in due time, seems to imply the following doings, relating to the punishment and destruction to which these wicked Israelites were exposed.
That they were always exposed to destruction; as one that stands or walks in slippery places is always exposed to fall. This is implied in the manner of their destruction coming upon them, being represented by their foot sliding. The same is expressed, Psalm It implies, that they were always exposed to sudden unexpected destruction.
As he that walks in slippery places is every moment liable to fall, he cannot foresee one moment whether he shall stand or fall the next; and when he does fall, he falls at once without warning: Which is also expressed in Psalm How are they brought into desolation as in a moment!
Another thing implied is, that they are liable to fall of themselves, without being thrown down by the hand of another; as he that stands or walks on slippery ground needs nothing but his own weight to throw him down.
For it is said, that when that due time, or appointed time comes, their foot shall slide. Then they shall be left to fall, as they are inclined by their own weight.
God will not hold them up in these slippery places any longer, but will let them go; and then at that very instant, they shall fall into destruction; as he that stands on such slippery declining ground, on the edge of a pit, he cannot stand alone, when he is let go he immediately falls and is lost.
The observation from the words that I would now insist upon is this.
The truth of this observation may appear by the following considerations. There is no want of power in God to cast wicked men into hell at any moment.
The strongest have no power to resist him, nor can any deliver out of his hands. Sometimes an earthly prince meets with a great deal of difficulty to subdue a rebel, who has found means to fortify himself, and has made himself strong by the numbers of his followers.
But it is not so with God. There is no fortress that is any defense from the power of God. They are as great heaps of light chaff before the whirlwind; or large quantities of dry stubble before devouring flames.Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God Jonathon Edwards, famous for preaching during “The Great Awakening” lived as a puritan, but later found out that church needed reform.

Jonathan Edwards SINNERS IN THE HANDS OF AN ANGRY GOD SERMON VI. This is the classic sermon preached by Jonathan Edwards on July 8, in Enfield, Massachusetts (now Connecticut).
All the means that there are of sinners going out of the world, are so in God's hands, and so universally and absolutely subject to his power and determination, that it does not depend at all the less on the mere will of God, whether sinners shall at any moment go to hell, than if means were never made use of, or at all concerned in the case.
The excerpt from Jonathon Edwards’ sermon Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God, is an example on how Puritans followed their religion. Jonathon Edwards’ work describes how God hated Puritans for their sins; which led the Puritans to feel guilty for their sins.
