Importance of the Dictionary
The dictionary defines the words that expound the theology and the vocabulary with which to describe the knowledge of God. Consider the definitions of the word “sin.”
Modern Dictionary (1980) – An offense against religious or moral law; an action that is thought to be highly reprehensible. Transgression of law of God. A vitiated state of human nature in which the self is estranged from God.
Webster Dictionary (1828) – The voluntary departure of a moral agent from a known rule or rectitude or duty, prescribed by God; any voluntary transgression of the divine law, or violation of a divine command; a wicked act; iniquity. Sin is either a positive act in which a known divine law is violated, or it is the voluntary neglect to obey a positive divine command, or a rule of duty clearly implied in such command. Sin comprehends not actions only, but whatever is contrary to God’s commands or law. 1 John 3; Matt. 15; James 4 (this definition goes for another column in the 1828 Dictionary)
