Q99 Of God's Mercy And Justice Towards The Damned
< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A1   A2   A3   A4   A5  

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

A1 Whether by Divine justice an eternal punishment is inflicted on sinners?

A2 Whether by God's mercy all punishment both of men and of demons comes to an end?

A3 Whether at least the punishment of men comes to an end?

A4 Whether at least the punishment of Christians has an end?

A5 Whether there is an end to the punishment of those who have performed works of mercy?
