God does not need His anger soothed? Why does He ask for atonement? The meaning of atonement is to soothe wrath through an offering.Seems is all that you can see based upon my ideas but my concepts come from the scriptures not outside the scriptures.
I did not say that God does not have wrath towards man's sin but God does not needed to be soothed. Such a concept is not scriptural but pagan! God sent his Son into the world to deliver us from sin but not to sooth is wrath. Jesus is not a scapegoat but is a scarifies offering for our sins which shows God's' love for humanity not his wrath.! God bless you. 🙂
Gen 8:21 after the flood, Noah made an offering to God and it says "The Lord smelled the soothing aroma."
