Edward Hitchcock incomplete sermon on Romans chapter 7

Item Information

Title:
Edward Hitchcock incomplete sermon on Romans chapter 7
Description:
An incomplete sermon by Edward Hitchcock about the interpretation of Paul's meaning in chapter 7 of Romans. Paul refers to being "carnal" and "sold under sin." Hitchcock notes that some people interpret Paul's words as being about an unconverted or unregenerate person rather than about himself, but Hitchcock argues that the text is indeed about Paul. Hitchcock urges his hearers to consider whether they have experienced what Paul has experienced and to consider their own sins.
