Michael E. said, "Monk said
//The way reverend is used in the verse comes from the Latin reverendus meaning worthy of being revered. So it is not the formal Rev. Dr. etc. whatever.//
The point is, it isn't referring to some mortal."


That's what I was saying, Jesus is revered, but not reverend.

The modern meaning of the word reverend is a minister of some church.

Pray for me,
the unworthy monk Brendan

Rob, I just wanted to say "Thanks!!!" I really appreciate the compliment. I study every week, not every day, but every week. In my studies I really try to focus on what God's word says not what some denomination says that it says. I've been studying His word for about 15 years now.

Lord bless you.

Ps 111:9 He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name.
...people ...think it is OK to call someone the Holy Father. By the way, the word Pope means "papa" aka father. I'm not trying to pick a fight I just want people to think.

Mt 23:9 call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. (KJV)
---trey on 9/24/15

You noticed of course who was offended. Ortho's have a pa pa pope too. Might note also that the rest of the scriptures you posted will also be avoided. PaPa, popes prefer, that you obey ...not read. Just keep building their "wide road". Scriptural Blueprints are not to utilized by the common followers.

Trey said, "Ps 111:9 He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name.(KJV)"

The way reverend is used in the verse comes from the Latin reverendus meaning worthy of being revered. So it is not the formal Rev. Dr. etc. whatever.

Pray for me,
the unworthy monk Brendan
---Monk_Brendan on 9/26/15


Trey, I sincerely hope I'm not wrong, but you come across as being someone who takes the needed time to study and examine what people say, which is something that is missing in the world today.

I'm getting up in age. We need more people like you who know and will take a stand for God's Truth!

Without looking at your Bible, trey, can you tell me what the NEXT verse says?

Glory to Jesus Christ!

It's okay Monk. "If you can't make a mistake you can't make anything." (Marva Collins, 1936-2015, educator, Chicago, IL) Sorry for calling you a "monkey". :)

I said, "do you feel obligated to insult somberdy on 99.99% of the CN blogs?"

Please forgive me. I try very hard to spell correctly, and to use appropriate punctuation. However, I misspelled the word somebody, and it came out somberdy, which is not a word at all. Again, please forgive me.

Pray for me,
the unworthy monk Brendan

Good points Trey.

The word reverend appears once in scripture:

Ps 111:9 He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name. (KJV)

I guess the same people who believe it is OK to call someone Reverend would think it is OK to call someone the Holy Father. By the way, the word Pope means "papa" aka father. I'm not trying to pick a fight I just want people to think.

Mt 23:9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. (KJV)

"Why do so many insist people call them REVEREND?" Only they can know for sure, however, I believe they simply like the sound of it:o)
---josef on 9/23/15


Only the name of God is reverend.

Psa 111:9 He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name.


---jerry6593 on 9/24/15


"Reverend" is an adjective, like "honorable."

It's a solecism to use either with simply a surname.

Honorable Judge Smith--but not Honorable Smith.

Reverend John Smith, or Reverend Dr. Smith, but not Reverend Smith.

The two words in 1611 had approximately the same meaning.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
