This particular doctrine denotes the very heart of the gospel It is God’s provision and payment for the sins of His people through the sacrificial substitutionary death of Christ The moving cause of the atonement is found in the good pleasure of God to save sinners (Isa 53: 10, Luke 2: 14, Col 1: 19) In the atoning work of Christ we see the Justice of God clearly revealed while the sinner is justified The necessity of the atonement is manifested by God sending His only unique son to be bruised and shed His precious blood for the sins of the elect (Rom 3: 25,26) The advocates of a universal atonement assert that Christ merely made salvation possible for all men, and that their actual redemption is dependent on their own free choice Those of the Reformed persuasion maintain that Christ actually saves those whom He laid down His life for Not one of them for whom Christ paid the price for will lose their salvation All are eternally secure (John 10: 27-29)

To atone means to make amends, to repair a wrong done Biblically, it means to remove sin The Old Testament atonements offered by the high priest were temporary and a foreshadow of the real and final atonement made by Jesus Jesus atoned for the sins of the world (1 John 2: 2) This atonement is received by faith (Rom 5: 1; Eph 2: 8) Man is a sinner (Rom 5: 8) and cannot atone for himself Therefore, it was the love of the Father that sent Jesus (1 John 4: 10) to die in our place (1 Pet 3: 18) for our sins (1 Pet 2: 24) Because of the atonement, our fellowship with God is restored (Rom 5: 10) (See Reconciliation )
The word Atonement was coined by English Reformation leader William Tyndale (1494-1536) It was how he translationed the latin word [reconciliatio], which means to bring together again, conciliate, or restore to union It's where we get the word reconcile In Theological terms it has more commonly come to mean, 'the work of Christ on the cross' in making amends for the enmity and the crimes comitted by man, against the laws of God It is this reparation which allows man, by Christ's death and resurrection, to eternally benefit [back]

the process by which a right relationship with God is restored Christians have no agreement as to how this process occurs Three dominant beliefs about atonement are interwoven in Christian theology: the classical view, the satisfaction theory, and the moral influence theory No one of these views is complete in and of itself In the classical or sacrificial view, God initiates our reconciliation through the sacrifice and death of Jesus In the satisfaction theory, God's honor is offended by our sinning Only through a perfect sacrifice of a divine human being, such as Jesus, can God's offended honor be restored In the moral influence theory, God frees us from our fear of God through God's sacrificial love and death shown to us through Jesus the Christ
Reconciliation; restoration of friendly relations; agreement; concord

the act of atoning for sin or wrongdoing (especially appeasing a deity)
