“That is to say, why would we imagine that God cannot or does not wish to continue pursuing the one after that individual’s death? …Most victims of crimes, as it turns out, do not just want to see the perpetrator punished; they want the person to understand the consequences of their actions, to feel remorse, to repent, and make amends of some kind.”
After death God may bring to memory every action of betrayal and how it felt to their victims. The cleansing and educative effect may take longer for some than others. But Jesus’ message wasn’t to say the sinner’s prayer or go to Hell. God wants to inspire and empower us to live a life here on earth that we can look back on life with fewer regrets.
