Theological Term of the Week: Propitiation

Theology-image

This week’s term: Propitiation – Essentially the same as atonement: covering, not in the sense of hiding, but in the sense of cancellation, as in mathematical or financial reconciliation. 

Last week’s term: Atonement – The work of God in washing away the sins of His elect, by the offering of Himself in the person of Jesus Christ, thus, making them at-one with Himself, or making peace between God and His elect.
