A Humanist’s answer is not real. It does not account for the disgusting dictatorship of sin in the human heart. Good FUTURE deeds (even if made from the right motives) cannot cancel out bad ones. If wrong has been done, the penalty of God’s broken law must function. God must be strictly fair. His justice cannot simply excuse, for instance, a murderer on his promise of some future behavior. Selfishness unchecked would murder God’s Universe.
