About this blog:

This site was not developed with the intention of drawing a large number of visitors using trivial methods and shallowness. There is rejoicing among the angels when even one sinner repents and believes in Jesus Christ. (Luke 15:10) If, for as long as this site exists, just one sinner is led to repentance and belief in Christ with the aid of the material presented here, the purpose of this site has been served.

      Propitiation: (n) \prō-pi-shē-ˈā-shən\ ἱλαστήριον

      Friday, December 14, 2007

      For those of you who do not know what this word means regarding Christ, I wanted to post this to help you understand what exactly the gracious Lord has done.

      For those of you who do understand the definition of this word, Paul Washer's comments will strengthen your faith.

      For those of you who do not care, may God have mercy on your pathetic, cowardly, ignorant, man-fearing soul.

      "Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whosoever eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, has eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed."

      - Jesus Christ
      (Joh 6:53-55)

      So leave those who contradict Christ to serve alone by themselves, and sit down at Jesus' feet to learn of Him. Let the Lord Jesus, after they chide Him about you not helping them, tell them, "You are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is needful. This one who is sitting at my feet and learning of me has chosen that good part which shall not be taken away from them." (Luke 10:39-42) Understand His full propitiation to those who have justification by faith in Him. Bless someone by sharing this message as it has been shared to you. Eat and eat and eat of his flesh and drink and drink and drink of his blood for "unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you."

      propitiation (n):



      This means the turning away of wrath by an offering.

      Greek word: ἱλαστήριον hilastērion
      1) relating to an appeasing or expiating, having placating or expiating force, expiatory; a means of appeasing or expiating, a propitiation
      1a) used of the cover of the ark of the covenant in the Holy of Holies, which was sprinkled with the blood of the expiatory victim on the annual day of atonement (this rite signifying that the life of the people, the loss of which they had merited by their sins, was offered to God in the blood as the life of the victim, and that God by this ceremony was appeased and their sins expiated); hence the lid of expiation, the propitiatory
      1b) an expiatory sacrifice
      1c) a expiatory victim

      But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;... Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God has set forth to be a PROPITIATION through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
      (Rom 3:21; 24-25)

      And he is the PROPITIATION for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
      (1Jn 2:2)

      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.
      (1Jn 4:10)

      Hi Lane, it's very ironic that you quote from John 6, even though you well know that Protestants don't take Christ seriously here, where He's quite obviously speaking literally, hammering away at it again and again. But of course we already know that Protestants are in fact quite selective when it comes to taking Holy Scripture seriously, thus the anarchy of their private judgment (every man is a pope) and its 35,000 Protestant denominations. Embrace the Real Presence. Repent and be baptized - into Christ's Catholic Church. Take Christ at His word, for only then shall you know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.

      First of all, there are not 35,000 Protestant denominations. If you listen to Steve Ray, you would believe that because I haven't seen him correct himself often, but James White has already cleared that up for those who will listen to the truth.

      Second of all, what is Christ's blood and his flesh? If you take Scripture seriously, you see that it is "his flesh is meat indeed and his blood is drink indeed." Also you see that he is the bread of life. Perhaps you equate that to a cookie, but that is where you err.

      Third of all, when you say that "Protestants are in fact quite selective when it comes to taking Holy Scripture seriously." Are you referring to verses like Eph. 1:4-5 or maybe 11? Or perhaps Romans 4? Maybe Eph. 2:8-9?

      That just shows what happens when you deem "Popery in the line of Peter" to be absolute. Perhaps you affirm that someone should have explained Peter's autonomy to Paul before he called him out before everyone and withstood him to the face? (Gal. 2:11) Maybe you affirm that someone should have let Jesus Christ in on Peter's infallibility before he said, "Get behind me Satan because you savor the things that be of man and not the things that be of God." (Mark 8:33)

      You're the one who needs to repent for trusting in man's "autonomy" rather than God's sovereignty.

      It is no secret that Rome's anathema still stands on those who hold to justification by faith alone,

      (Wherefore, no one ought to flatter himself up with faith alone, fancying that by faith alone he is made an heir, and will obtain the inheritance, even though he suffer not with Christ, that so he may be also glorified with him.
      [Council of Trent Session 6, Ch. 6]

      If any one saith, that by faith alone the impious is justified; in such wise as to mean, that nothing else is required to co-operate in order to the obtaining the grace of Justification, and that it is not in any way necessary, that he be prepared and disposed by the movement of his own will; let him be anathema.
      (Canon IX, Session 6, Trent)

      If any one saith, that man is truly absolved from his sins and justified, because that he assuredly believed himself absolved and justified; or, that no one is truly justified but he who believes himself justified; and that, by this faith alone, absolution and justification are effected; let him be anathema.
      (Canon XIV, Session 6, Trent)


      If any one saith, that a man, who is born again and justified, is bound of faith to believe that he is assuredly in the number of the predestinate; let him be anathema.
      (Canon XV, Session 6, Trent)

      If any one saith, that the grace of Justification is only attained to by those who are predestined unto life; but that all others who are called, are called indeed, but receive not grace, as being, by the divine power, predestined unto evil; let him be anathema.
      (Canon XVII, Session 6, Trent)

      and those who discount a works righteousness

      If any one saith, that the justice received is not preserved and also increased before God through good works; but that the said works are merely the fruits and signs of Justification obtained, but not a cause of the increase thereof; let him be anathema.
      (Canon XXIV, Session 6, Trent)

      So why would one possibly need to repent for believing the Scriptures? Clearly Rome has "another gospel", as the Apostle Paul so clearly stated.

      Do you imply that these anathema's have been lifted since the Council of Trent?

      Jitpring said...

      As you wish. You'll believe what's most comfortable and convenient for you - in thorough accord with today's dictatorship of relativism and the consumerism at its core.

      I know, you believe you're quite radical, quite against this bankrupt culture. In fact, you're conformed to this world. Get really radical. Reject today's individualist anarchy (know it: it flows from Protestantism itself). Really submit to Christ. Become Catholic.

      At any rate, here's something we can both embrace for now, a new book which utterly refutes that scoundrel Richard Dawkins:

      Will you answer the questions about Rome's anathemas? I think it is only fitting to thoroughly explain to someone what you are so emphatically urging them to "repent and believe" in.
