Description

Gilbert Tennent (1703-1764) was an Irish-American Presbyterian clergyman, and one of the leaders of the Great Awakening.

The title of this sermon translates to "On the freedom from care or carelessness of mortal man." Tennent warns against feeling false comfort and joy, as one must be "wounded by the law and spirit of God" and subsequently healed by Christ, as a sort of physician for sick souls, where sin is the metaphorical sickness.
