    A sermon by Edward Hitchcock discussing the concept that mankind judges people by their actions while God judges by what is in a person's heart, which is the only true form of judgment. Hitchcock notes that there are certain external markers which reveal that the state of a person's heart is not right with God, and discusses six of these markers. He closes by saying that the subjects discussed should cause people to weep for their fellow man, to fear for themselves and their fellow men, and to pray for themselves and for others. Acts 8:21 is quoted. Hitchcock has noted the dates and locations where he delivered this sermon on the first page. less
