Edward Hitchcock sermon no. 177, "Nature of confessing & forsaking sin," 1823 September
View Full Text
Edward Hitchcock's sermon on sin, confession and mercy, based on Proverbs 28:13 (But whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.). Hitchcock noted on the first page that he had preached this sermon only once as well as Bible chapters and hymns related to the sermon. He intended to provide a brief exhibition of the terms on which the penitent is able to be reconciled to God: the confession of sins; the forsaking of sins; and, the nature of the mercy which the penitent receives.
