What is virtue? Is it possible for a person who is not a Christian to be virtuous?
Webster's Dictionary is defining a word, not a doctrine. Its work has to do with English usage, not the Bible. It is crucial to compare modern Webster's Dictionary with Webster himself.I wonder if that's a matter of definition? Webster's says virtue is defined as "behavior showing high moral standards." In that case it could be possible that one could practice moralism, which would be anti-gospel, and not of faith.
Just a thought.
