Let the elders who rule well be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in preaching and teaching.I Timothy 5:17 ESV
Sunday, October 11 is Pastor Appreciation Day, a day to let your pastor know what a great job he is doing and encourage him in the ministry of the Word. Paul exhorted Timothy to give honor to those whose work is preaching and teaching.
One excellent way to honor your pastor is with the gift of Noah Webster’s 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language. The Webster’s 1828 Dictionary is a unique and essential tool for educating Christians. It has the greatest number of Biblical definitions of any reference. This dictionary becomes not only a reference tool for defining words Biblically, it becomes a way of thinking that forms your worldview. It helps any scholar to be more effective in communicating Christian principles and to clearly understand how the Bible has influenced every area of life.
Keep reading for two testimonials from pastors using the Webster’s 1828 American Dictionary. This publication is so important for our nation and every American Christian home and church should have a copy.
All of our inalienable rights were established and given to us by the Creator. Everything the Creator established is built upon the foundational principle of words. Since words have the power to bring structure or chaos in the lives of mankind, knowing their true meaning is of utmost importance. Noah Webster the founder of American education invested his life to define and give meaning to all the words of the founding era. As citizens of this great nation our investment should be to obtain, cherish, and study this precious resource. The Noah Webster 1828 Dictionary is a valuable tool of education that should be on the shelf of every American citizen today.Scott C. Lovett, Overseer of Real Church & Fervent Fire Ministries, Tulsa, OK
As a Pastor I am continually reminded of the critical importance of defining words correctly. As we study the Scriptures, “rightly dividing the Word of truth” is the difference between Orthodoxy and Heresy. When it comes to our understanding of the English language, whether it be the English translations of the Bible or the Founding Documents of these United States having a reliable source for accurate definitions is indispensable. That is why I treasure my copy of Webster’s 1828 Dictionary. Webster crafted his monumental work at a time before the devolving of the English language began. To understand what the Founders of our Country meant in the Founding Documents, Webster’s 1828 Dictionary is the key. I also value the fact that his work is thoroughly drenched in Scripture. He uses the Word of God to illustrate the use of the words being defined. I commend this volume to every Christian.Pastor David Whitney, Pastor of Cornerstone Evangelical Free Church, Pasadena, MD
