God gives us His Words, preserved unto every generation just as He PROMISED in Psalm 12:6-8; but then the SBC and many like them reject those Words for something more hip to our times.
Obviously, dedication and service are highly desirable, but they are the privilege and the duty of the saved, never a condition of salvation for the unsaved (cf.

To show you the context, we included the next verse as well:
"Also, since the verse divisions and number were not included in the Bible until 1560 A.D., I haven't always quoted the verse, but rather focused on the phrase that was appropriate. My model for this is Jesus and how he and the apostles quoted the Old Testament. They often just quoted a phrase to make a point."
"...we often miss the full impact of familiar Bible verses, because of poor translating, but simply because they have become so familiar! We we know what a verse says because we have read it or heard it so many times. Then when we find it quoted in a book, we skim over it and miss the full meaning.

Other than the dedication, students will have another chance to recognize the people who helped them with the paper. In the acknowledgments section of the dissertation, students will need to recognize the professors, advisers, librarians, committee and researchers who made the dissertation possible. While some of these individuals may be directly involved in the process, others may be included in the acknowledgments for their morale support. A supportive spouse or parent may be included on occasion. Additionally, students should keep in mind all of the librarians at different archives and research assistants who helped with the research. While the committee members should be included for political reasons, the librarians and researchers should be acknowledged because they actually contributed to the completion of the dissertation.

Most books at the library will have a dedication page. Normally, this page includes quotes like “For my mother” or “For Lucy who never gave up on me.” A dissertation dedication is the same concept. In this part of the dissertation, the student must use a sentence or a paragraph to dedicate their text. They may want to use the dedication to recognize an individual who inspired them to go to college or someone who helped with the dissertation. Dedicating the dissertation to someone is a way to honor them. After putting so much work into this paper, it is a chance for the student to recognize the people who influenced the process.
As students create their dissertation, they spend weeks agonizing over the research, outlines and writing. At the end of the process, there is unfortunately another detail to worry about: the dissertation dedication. The dedication is fairly easy to write and can be completed in a few hours. Despite the worries about the college student, the dedication is an extremely straightforward piece of writing.
