Defining Marriage
MODERN DICTIONARY (2020): The state of being united as spouses in a
consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law. The mutual relation
of married persons; the institution whereby individuals are joined in a marriage.
WEBSTER DICTIONARY (1828): The act of uniting a man and a woman
for life; wedlock; the legal union of a man and a woman for life. Marriage is
a contract both civil and religious by which the parties engage to live together
in mutual affection and fidelity, till death shall separate them. Marriage was
instituted by God Himself for the purpose of preventing the promiscuous
intercourse of sexes, for promoting domestic felicity, and for securing the
maintenance and education of children. “Marriage is honorable in all and the
bed undefiled.” Hebrews 13.

Defining Education
MODERN DICTIONARY (2020): The action or process of educating or of
being educated; a stage of such a process; the knowledge and development
resulting from an educational process; the field of study that deals mainly with
methods of teaching and learning in schools.
WEBSTER DICTIONARY (1828): The bringing up, as of a child; instruction;
formation of manners. Education comprehends all that series of instruction
and discipline which is intended to enlighten the understanding, correct the
temper, and form the manners and habits of youth, and fit them for usefulness
in their future stations. To give children a good education in manners, arts and
science, is important; to give them a religious education is indispensable; and an
immense responsibility rests on parents and guardians who neglect these duties.

Defining Sin
MODERN DICTIONARY (2020): An offense against religious or moral
law; an action that is or is felt to be highly reprehensible; an often serious
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. I John 3; Matthew 15;
James 4. (The definition goes on for another column in the 1828 Dictionary.)

Defining Law
MODERN DICTIONARY (2020): A binding custom
or practice of a community: a rule of conduct or action
prescribed or formally recognized as binding or enforced by
a controlling authority. (This definition continues for two
inches of one column.)
WEBSTER DICTIONARY (1828): A rule, particularly an
established or permanent rule, prescribed by the supreme
power of a state to its subjects, for regulating their actions,
particularly their social actions. Laws are imperative or
mandatory, commanding what shall be done; prohibitory,
restraining from what is to be forborne; or permissive,
declaring what may be done without incurring a penalty.
The laws which enjoin the duties of piety and morality, are
prescribed by God and found in the Scriptures. (This definition
continues for twenty-one inches of three columns.)
