whenever you start studying something or some paradigm you tend to not often be correct in your analysis. but even if you are correct at first, with time you say more and there is a geometric certainty that the more dogma you articulate regarding the paradigm, the more likely you are wrong about something.
and the problem with eternal through crimes relative to liberal ‘ephemeral’ shame; which no one will recall if you don’t remind them. is that there is no redemption. if you were incorrect in your queries regarding the paradigm, those ‘wrongs’ are never and can never be absolved. even if you later contradict your previous arguments in favour of a new, better educated position. those tallies still lay marked against you.
but what about repenting, or third party absolution/redemption/forgiveness? if that is permitted, then the sins aren’t eternally wrong but ephemerally wrong and not even to the term of needing social sanction and redemption. rather if you repent or are saved by a spiritual being you can’t do wrong meaningfully. for any wrong you do is instantly redeemed or forgiven by tribalism, or by spiritual ambiguity, or by uninterested spirits.
if the wrong is justified by a third party which doesn’t exist. the wrong isn’t justified. so “only god may judge me” is saying ‘no one can judge me but myself’, do as thou wilt. and worse it presumes conspiracy and faith of the almighty in the self, by rationalization from the action merely having occurred, as a miraculous blessing. rather than a vestigue of personal guilt.
so there are layers of the concept of redemption of sin:
– divine redemption which happens instantly by ventured association. like guilt by association there is redemption by association
-redemption by failure of memory. if no one remembers something bad occured it will be like no bad occured.
-redemption by discrete confession
-redemption by victem forgiveness
-redemption by humiliation – scapegoating the villian for the act in ever demonstrable case. to humiliate and/or punish the guilty.
-redemption by violent vindication.
