Liberal Anglicans do not like the reference to the wrath of God being satisfied in the hymn 'In Christ Alone', so what do they do? Censor it.

The Copyright version of Stuart Townend and Keith Getty's classic hymn says:
In Christ alone! who took on flesh
Fulness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones he came to save:
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied -
For every sin on Him was laid;
Here in the death of Christ I live.

In the unauthorised version in use in liberal Anglican circles, the sixth line of this verse reads: The love of God was exemplified.'
