  Propitiation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Christianity, Propitiation is a theological term denoting that by which God is rendered propitious, i.e., that 'satisfaction' or 'appeasement' by which it becomes consistent with His character and government to pardon and bless sinners.
In Christian theology, propitiation is the work of Jesus Christ on the cross, by which He appeases the wrath of God(not an emotional response of anger but a moral response of indignation, and conciliates Him who would otherwise be offended by our sin and would demand that we pay the penalty for it.
Propitiation is not the placating of a vengeful God but, rather it is the satisfying the righteousness judgement of that holy God; thereby making it possible for Him to show mercy, without compromising His righteousness or justice.

The need for propitiation was due to the holy nature of God (Exodus 15:11; 1 Samuel 6:20; Psalm 99:9; Isaiah 6:3; Revelation 15:4) on the one hand, and the sinful nature of man (Romans 3:23; 11:32; Galatians 3:22) on the other.

 Propitiation in I John 2:2 by Dr. Gary D. Long
propitiation is conceived as merely laying a basis for actual forgiveness of sins, and is spoken of therefore rather as "sufficient" than efficacious—becoming efficacious only through the act of faith on the part of the believer, by which he secures Christ as his Advocate.
John introduces the declaration that Christ is—not "was," the propitiation is as continuous in its effect as the advocacy?our propitiation, in order to support his reference of sinning Christians to Christ as their Advocate with the Father, and to give them confidence in the efficacy of his advocacy.
The efficacy of the advocacy rests on that of the propitiation, not the efficacy of the propitiation on that of the advocacy.

 What is propitiation?
Propitiation is a two-part act that involves appeasing the wrath of an offended person and being reconciled to them.

The only satisfaction, or propitiation, that could be acceptable to God and that could reconcile man to Him had to be made by God.

Propitiation - that by which God is rendered propitious, i.e., by which it becomes consistent with his character and government to pardon and bless the sinner.

 Christ, Our Propitiation
In the Greek, the word "to propitiate" is hilaskomai, which means to appease, to placate, to avert, to turn aside the wrath of an offended person by means of a sacrifice.
Four things are involved in propitiation: First, there is an offended deity; second, an offending sinner; third, the offense committed; and fourth, the sacrifice which removes the offense and causes the offended person to be gracious to the one who offended him.
So propitiation means a sacrifice offered to God to turn away his wrath from us and put it on a substitute, that God may be gracious to us and forgive us our sins and restore us to fellowship with him.

 PROPITIATION
Thus propitiation in the New Testament must be understood as turning away wrath, not as expiation, that is, making amends for a wrong or nullifying the effects of sin.

It is of the utmost importance that we should understand that propitiation in the crude sense is not possible with the God of Israel, and that the Greek words used reflect this view of the deity.

 Still Reforming: The Bible--without Grace and Propitiation
Thanks to the ESV Blog for their post today about propitiation (and corresponding link).
As PJ has so eloquently put it, when the doctrine of propitiation comes under attack, a whole generation of people who don't even know the word have no clue how to defend the doctrine (actually, he puts it more eloquently, but you get the drift).
Propitiation, for example, certainly includes the idea of atoning sacrifice, but it doesn't specifically tell us anything about atonement being made because God's righteous wrath has been satisfied.
