  1. So - 1. The Savior satisfied the demands of Justice - by paying the price Justice requires as the consequence of the sins of mankind. 2. Those who do not repent must endure endless torment and endless, eternal punishment according to eternal laws, including that of Justice. To me, this seems like a very long time which will be very unpleasant. I dont get why someone woudl choose this, nor why Justice would have nothing better to do than continually gnaw at the souls of the guilty. 3. Therefore: Justice will be satisfied either by the Savior or by us stubborn mortals - BUT if it's endless, does that mean that the Savior: a. endured endless torment and endless, eternal punishment and suffered an eternity of guilt, pain, anguish, and repentance (?) in Gethsemane which satisfies Justice - eternally, or b. He suffers eternally as Justice is unrelenting and mankind contiue to be born, sin, die, etc. I imagine it's a. but wanted to hear your thoughts and opinions on this. I think Justice though carrying out his/her role and function - is just a big jerk. Also, is Justice like a personage or more like gravity, that is to say, a law? D&C 19: 3...I shall... djudge every man according to his eworks and the deeds which he hath done. 4 And surely every man must arepent or bsuffer, for I, God, am cendless. 5 Wherefore, I arevoke not the judgments which I shall pass, but woes shall go forth, weeping, bwailing and gnashing of teeth, yea, to those who are found on my cleft hand. 6 Nevertheless, it is anot written that there shall be no end to this torment, but it is written bendless ctorment. 7 Again, it is written aeternal damnation; wherefore it is more express than other scriptures, that it might work upon the hearts of the children of men, altogether for my name’s glory. 10 For, behold, the amystery of godliness, how great is it! For, behold, I am bendless, and the punishment which is given from my hand is endless cpunishment, for dEndless is my name. Wherefore— 11 aEternal punishment is God’s punishment. 12 Endless punishment is God’s punishment. 13 Wherefore, I command you to repent, and keep the acommandments which you have received by the hand of my servant Joseph Smith, Jun., in my name; 14 And it is by my almighty power that you have received them; 15 Therefore I command you to repent—repent, lest I asmite you by the rod of my mouth, and by my wrath, and by my anger, and your bsufferings be sore—how sore you know not, how exquisite you know not, yea, how hard to bear you know not. 16 For behold, I, God, have asuffered these things for all, that they bmight not suffer if they would crepent; 17 But if they would not repent they must asuffer even as I; 18 Which asuffering caused myself, even God, the greatest of all, to tremble because of pain, and to bleed at every pore, and to suffer both body and spirit—and would that I might bnot drink the bitter cup, and shrink— 19 Nevertheless, glory be to the Father, and I partook and afinished my preparations unto the children of men.
