Expiation and Propitiation SA 6

Don’t let yourself be put off by this rather technical sounding terminology – it is simply the terminology used to describe how Jesus demolished the third fence. And whereas the second fence was to do with God’s absolute righteousness, this one concerns His absolute justice, the two together comprising what the Bible terms as His holiness. And the problem of fence number three is that a just God cannot just turn a blind eye to sin but must execute judgement on those who are guilty of it. Therefore, how on earth could salvation ever have happened? As with everything the Lord does it is really rather clever; and because He appreciates how slow of understanding we are as well, it is also very simple.
