Tom

But Tom, the word gender does not mean male or female, even though modern day liberals have changed its meaning, in the same way they have changed the meaning of other words, such as "gay."

This is the same type of language corruption as using the word "they," or using the phrase "he or she," or "he/she" when referring to an individual, rather than using the proper construct of the single word "he" or the single word "she." And the point of this corruption is once again to mask the sex of the individual, because the liberal/feminist agenda cannot accept any difference between male and female.

It seems as if the term neo-orthodox can refer to many beliefs on viewing Christianity. For instance, Reinhold Niebuhr is said to be a neo-orthodox theologian. Did he completely distance himself from the gospel and biblical teaching? Who are the current day neo-orthodox and have for the most part they have stopped calling themselves as neo-orthodox?

I remember hearing quite a while ago that the using propitiation is important in biblical understanding.Is propitiation one of those words that has a different understanding in theology, than it does in general?

Atone/Atonement is an inclusive term which refers to the whole aspect of making one right with God.

There are 4 main aspects and a few minor ones (not to be construed as less important) of atonement:

  • Redemption
  • Reconciliation
  • Sacrifice
  • Propitiation

Propitiation has a two-fold prospective: a) to appease the wrath of one offended, b) the removal of that which has caused the offense. In biblical/theological terms, The Lord Christ paid the penalty for the sins of the elect, thus appeasing the wrath of God and judgment upon them. The Greek noun is hilasterion and the verb is hilaskomi (cf. Rom 3:25; 1Joh 2:2; 4:10)
