Gilbert Tennent (1703-1764) was an Irish-American Presbyterian clergyman, and one of the leaders of the Great Awakening. From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent began this sermon in 1758, and added to it in the years following: 1760, 1761 and 1763. In it, he cites Acts 24:16, "And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men." He also cites 2 Corinthians 1:12, "For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward."
