God is righteous; therefore is He just. “Our Lord is righteous in all His ways.” ‘”I have not done without cause all that I have done,’ says our Lord.” “The judgments of our Lord are true and righteous altogether.” The justice of our Universal Father cannot be influenced by the acts and performances of His creatures, “for there is no iniquity with the Lord our God, no respect of persons, no taking of gifts.”
How futile for us to make puerile appeals to God, to attempt to modify His changeless decrees so that we can avoid the just consequences of the operation of His wise natural laws and righteous spiritual mandates. “Be not deceived; God is not mocked, for whatsoever you sow that shall you also reap.”
But even in the justice of reaping the harvest of wrongdoing, His divine justice is always tempered with His divine mercy. His infinite wisdom is the eternal arbiter which determines the proportions of His justice and His mercy which shall be meted out in any given circumstance.
The greatest punishment (in reality an inevitable consequence) for our wrongdoing and deliberate rebellion against the government of our Father is the loss of existence as an individual living personality. The final result of wholehearted sin is annihilation. In the last analysis, sin-identified individuals have destroyed themselves. They have destroyed themselves by becoming wholly unreal through their embrace of iniquity. However, the factual disappearance of such a creature personality is always delayed until the ordained order of justice current in that particular universe has been fully complied with.
But if the sentence of execution is finally confirmed, the sin-identified being [right then] instantly becomes as though he/she had not been. There is no resurrection from such a fate; it is everlasting and eternal. The living energy factors of identity are resolved by the transformations of time and the metamorphoses of space into the cosmic potentials whence they once emerged. As for the personality of the iniquitous one, it is deprived of a continuing life vehicle due to the creature’s failure to make those choices and final decisions which would have assured eternal life.
If any of us should continue to embrace sin, the associated mind culminating in complete self identification with iniquity and thereby failing to evolve the immortal soul required to assure eternal life, [then] upon cessation of life, upon cosmic dissolution, such isolated personality would be absorbed into the oversoul of creation. It would be absorbed as though a drop of water is absorbed back into the sea; never again does it appear as a personality; its identity becomes as though it had never been, with the individual’s experiential spirit values surviving in the reality of the continuing indwelling Spirit Being that had indwelt the mind.
In an universe contest between actual levels of reality, the personality of the higher level will ultimately triumph over the personality of the lower level. This inevitable outcome of universe controversy is inherent in the fact that divinity of quality equals the degree of reality or actuality of any will creature. Thus wealth, beauty, power, race, status, etc., all have nothing to do with the degree of reality or actuality of you; it is how your personality divinely uses these positions in your life that determines the actual level of the reality of you; and whether you will triumph over the personality of a lower level of a divine quality.
Undiluted evil, complete error, willful sin, and unmitigated iniquity are inherently and automatically suicidal. Such attitudes of cosmic unreality can survive in our universe only because of transient mercy tolerance pending the action of the justice-determining and fairness-finding mechanisms of our universe (personality) tribunals of righteous adjudication.
The role in our universe is one of creation and spiritualization. Created perfect personalities of divinity within our universe devote themselves to the effective execution of the Paradise plan of our progressive mortal ascension — to the rehabilitation of rebels and wrong thinkers — but when all such loving efforts are finally and forever rejected, the final decree of dissolution is executed.
