Ah, Amos and LH. Even for those of us with no religious leanings know about Jonathan Edwards and his Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God. It's one of the "cultural literacy" things that goes along with learning American History. "The arrows of death fly unseen at noonday; the sharpest sight can't discern them. God has so many different unsearchable ways of taking wicked men out of the world and sending 'em to hell, that there is nothing to make it appear that God had need to be at the expense of a miracle, or go out of the ordinary course of his providence, to destroy any wicked man, at any moment."

It did have something to do with the conversation several dozen posts back. :)
