Description

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

Tennent begins this sermon, on the subject of enmity, by citing Romans 8:7, "Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be." He also cites John 15:24, "If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father."

From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote this sermon in 1758, then delivered it again in 1760 and 1763.
