Q[99] Of God's Mercy And Justice Towards The Damned
< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]   A[4]   A[5]  

We must next consider God's justice and mercy towards the damned: under which head there are five points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether by Divine justice an eternal punishment is inflicted on sinners?

A[2] Whether by God's mercy all punishment both of men and of demons comes to an end?

A[3] Whether at least the punishment of men comes to an end?

A[4] Whether at least the punishment of Christians has an end?

A[5] Whether there is an end to the punishment of those who have performed works of mercy?
