This week: What "churchy" or Biblical word do you hear used but not often consider the meaning of?
I actually have two that I have been meaning to study further. One is "propitiation" and the other is "forbearance." They are not words I hear often, but I have run across them fairly recently and want to study them more. Since Paeter has started working through Romans he will come upon these words soon enough.
"Propitiation" I believe is basically the "satisfaction of the debt" that I owed before I became a Christian. I think that "forbearance" is the patience of God not unleashing His wrath on me the instant I sin, but rather He was willing to wait to give opportunity for salvation or, now, reconciliation. Both of these terms are interesting to me and I need to study them further.
Please feel free to add anything you may have to contribute as I am always looking to learn more and seeking the truth. I'm also looking forward to hearing what other words y'all may have.
