Reconciliation

"Progress demands humble willingness to reconcile one's thinking to the demands of God"

From the beginning of Biblical history the subject of reconciliation has been important in religious thinking. In ancient times the Israelites offered sacrifices to God believing that this would reconcile Him to themselves and make expiation for their sins by pleasing Him. The Apostle Paul, in his second letter to the Corinthians, indicated a more advanced concept of reconciliation, namely that man must be reconciled to God. Paul wrote (5:20), "Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God."
