In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government ought to be instructed... No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people.

approve

APPROVE', v.t. [L. approbo; of ad and probo, to prove or approve. See Approbate, Prove and Proof.]

1. To like; to be pleased with; to admit the propriety of; as, we approve the measures of administration. This word may include, with the assent of the mind to the propriety, a commendation to others.

2. To prove; to show to be true; to justify.

Would'st thou approve thy constancy? Approve first thy wisdom.

[This sense, though common a century or two ago, is now rare.]

3. To experience; to prove by trial. [Not used. See Prove.]

4. To make or show to be worthy of approbation; to commend.

Jesus, a man approved of God. Acts 2.

This word seems to include the idea of Christ's real office as the Messiah, and of God's love and approbation of him in that character.

5. To like and sustain as right; to commend.

Yet their posterity approve their sayings. Ps. 49.

This word, when it signifies to be pleased, is often followed by of, in which use, it is intransitive; as, I approve of the measure. But the tendency of modern usage is to omit of. "I approve the measure."

6. To improve.

About 1828

First dictionary of the American Language!

Noah Webster, the Father of American Christian education, wrote the first American dictionary and established a system of rules to govern spelling, grammar, and reading. This master linguist understood the power of words, their definitions, and the need for precise word usage in communication to maintain independence. Webster used the Bible as the foundation for his definitions.

This standard reference tool will greatly assist students of all ages in their studies.

No other dictionary compares with the Webster's 1828 dictionary. The English language has changed again and again and in many instances has become corrupt. The American Dictionary of the English Language is based upon God's written word, for Noah Webster used the Bible as the foundation for his definitions. This standard reference tool will greatly assist students of all ages in their studies. From American History to literature, from science to the Word of God, this dictionary is a necessity. For homeschoolers as well as avid Bible students it is easy, fast, and sophisticated.

Victoria Maizes MD- Practicing Gratitude One simple way to feel happier (and healthier) is to begin a gratitude practice. I like to practice gratitude before I go to bed at night. Turning over the events of the day in my mind, I acknowledge three people or events or things that I am grateful.
Victoria Maizes MD- Mind and Body Practicing yoga can be a wonderful, life- affirming way to prepare for pregnancy. Yoga helps us become comfortable with our bodies and what they are capable of.
Victoria Maizes MD- Facing Cancer In integrative medicine, we usually recommend conventional treatment of the cancer and use the tools of nutrition, mind-body, and alternative systems to help support a personís over all well-being and reduce treatment side effects.
Victoria Maizes MD- Environment In addition to being mindful about what we put into our bodies, we need to be aware of the potential toxins in the environment in which our bodies reside.
Victoria Maizes MD- Conventional Medicine As an integrative physician, I regularly use the many advances available in conventional medicine.
