    A sermon by Edward Hitchcock discussing the sixth chapter of Romans. He goes through the chapter verse by verse, going into depth about the meaning of certain portions of these verses. For example, Hitchcock explains the phrase "buried in baptism" in detail, and emphasizes the concept that those who have been justified by faith are incapable of performing sinful acts. At the end of the sermon Hitchcock draws several inferences from the text, including that a true child of God would not exclaim that by saying men are saved through sin alone the scriptures give an excuse to sin. Hitchcock has noted on the first page that the sermon was delivered in Conway in February 1825. There appears to be a portion missing from the sermon since it is not completed on the last page. less
