"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved."  John 3:16-17

A word on dictionaries:
The above quote came from a godly man who obviously knew the Holy Scriptures i.e. Bible. The new Merriam-Webster dictionary defines this word simiarly, but please note the original examples (1823 and 1913 dictionaries) were substituted and a newer word is introduced. The definition of PROPITIATE was added and is cross linked with PROPITIATION, the example given is detailed below. This new word orginated in Latin and thought to be first used in 1583 but was added later to the Webster dictionary after 1913. Perhaps this gave license to change the original example Mr. Webster used.
Copyright law was modifed through the efforts of Noah and Daniel Webster - see bottom of page.)

From Wikipedia
"His 1828 American Dictionary contained the greatest number of Biblical definitions given in any reference volume. Webster considered education "useless without the Bible." Webster released his own edition of the Bible in 1833, called the Common Version. He used the King James Version (KJV) as a base and consulted the Hebrew and Greek along with various other versions and commentaries. Webster molded the KJV to correct grammar, replaced words that were no longer used, and did away with words and phrases that could be seen as offensive."

We hear often of the world moving futher from the true God, the God of Christianity in this country, here is proof of this fact.

Copyright from Wikipedia
Politician Daniel Webster was Noah Webster’s cousin. As a senator, Daniel sponsored Noah’s proposed copyright bill.[24] The first major statutory revision of U.S. copyright law, the 1831 Act was a result of intensive lobbying by Noah Webster and his agents in Congress.[25] Webster also played a critical role lobbying individual states throughout the country during the 1780s to pass the first American copyright laws, which were expected to have distinct nationalistic implications for the infant nation.[26]
