How to use "Atonement" in context?

Atonement can be defined as the action or work through which something is made right, and the state of being atoned for. For Christians, atonement refers to the process Christ went through on the cross in order to save sinners. Christ's death on the cross was both complete and sufficient for the forgiveness of sins.

The atonement of Christ sheds light on the concept of sin and redemption. Sin is anything that separates us from God and damages our relationship with Him. Redemption, on the other hand, is the act of paying for something with money or something of equal value.
