Thanks. I should know, after all. I am one who worships, and you are one who does not.


Perfect!


If you want to learn about baking, do you go to a baker, or do you go to someone who knows the definition of "to bake" from dictionary.com?



Keep going, it's getting better and better!

That someone would seem silly for questioning dictionary.com. I don't like that dictionary site in general. Webster has more depth of meaning and connotation in its definitions.


Here are the sources for the sundry definitions on the previously-linked URL (in the order in which they appear):

-Random House Unabridged Dictionary
-The American Heritage? Dictionary of the English Language
-(Harper's) Online Etymology Dictionary
-(Princeton U.) WordNet
-Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary *ahem*
-Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary


Point...err...taken? *shrug*

Someone chose those definitions and in doing so left out others. If you included all of the definitions of "worship" that were not chosen alongside the basic ones included on dictionary.com, you would see more of the meaning of the word.

Re: Christian fist fight at Church of the Holy Sepulchre

It appears to me that you're the one with the unnatural bias for all things Webster's, especially when their etymology section is known to be quite limited and the whole thing has an American slant (particularly compared with the OED).

Remind me, was Middle English spoken a lot in the Colonies?

Re: Christian fist fight at Church of the Holy Sepulchre

some more definitions:

a feeling of profound love and admiration
great admiration or devotion
adoring or devoted regard

some synonyms: veneration, reverence, piety, adoration

So, as you can see, we can throw words around but it doesn't prove anything. I think you actually do worship and call it something else.

The above don't come from Webster's...I checked various online resources (wordsymth, oxford, etc.)

Here's another one, which IS from Webster's:


To respect; to honor; to treat with civil reverence

Oh, and no we are not speaking Middle English and it wasn't spoken in the colonies...but it was once spoken by Christians who shaped our ideas of worship, so I would say that the origin of the word is important.
