Propitiation

Part 3 of Finished

In pagan religions, it was believed that man could appease an angry god by offering gifts or sacrifices. This was propitiation.

Biblical propitiation is much different. Our sin does anger God, but it is not the sinner who offers the propitiation. "God set forth [Jesus] as a propitiation by His blood" (Romans 3:25 NKJV). "In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins" (1 John 4:10 NKJV).
