Modern Bible versions use the word “Atonement” in place of the KJV’s “Propitiation”. The terms are synonymous and signify; the expiation of sin, thus being made favourable, accepted, in the eyes of Almighty God. This is more than the cancelling of a sin debt. The guilt is not simply cancelled, but paid for, and suffered, in full. Here’s an example of how the word propitiation is used in the Holy Bible Ro. 3:21-25a KJV;
But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets.
Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood.
