God always rewards good and eventually punishes all evil. No detail, no matter how minute--escapes His attention. Most lost people and many immature believers speculate that God, because He is good, grants some type of general amnesty to people, adding up good deeds, subtracting the bad, and throwing in some extra mercy here and there, so that just about everybody can make it to heaven somehow.
One thing is certain—sin always pays back both believers and unbelievers with boredom, guilt, shame, loneliness, confusion, emptiness, loss of purpose, and loss of rewards.
The negative consequence engine for the Christian should never be thought of as punishment because Jesus has already been fully punished for the believer’s sins.
