Philosophy in life

Adhere the problem with divine justice, is it unjust for any finite sin to be meted out with infinite punishment? Or a finite goodness with an infinite reward?
Question asked by: poopoo

Asked on: 04 Jan 2011

You can only just on people's past, and so if people's past actions occurred in a finite time (and since we are mortal, that must be the case) then there is no other way to base judgements.

So it comes down to what is possible rather than what is fair.

Of course one could say that if during infinite time one's behaviour changed so as to warrant a reassessment then that would be the best way.
