I would best explain honor centered concepts of Justice as concerned about who was offended, where our more egalitarian forms of justice are more concerned about what the offense was and how it caused harm. If anyone knows where I am going with this, this is over the idea that an infinite sin against an infinite being merits infinite punishment. I know this has been addressed, and there are many conclusions brought up. I have heard the responses A) that the scriptures in the Old Testament Law are more concerned about the nature of the offense than who it was against, as was the standard held by old testament kings. In fact, an orthodox bishop claimed that retributive views of Hell were influenced by medieval honor codes. B) The nature of the offense is not about offending God, as he is completely whole, perfect and incorruptible, and therefore cannot be truly offended, or this would make God no different than a demiurge. However, the infinite wrong hypothetically would be the ultimate nature of sin, which willingly done are an ultimate no to God, and the source of all life. C) Even so, nothing can be earned, as even our own existence is all gift not of our own merit, and even if our own merits could only damn us, Gods mercy is still superior. Not that this makes mercy any less necessary than justice.
Now getting back to the point, I have found that most Universalist thought accepts the validity of more distributive/restorative forms of justice, where one only is obliged to set things right. For example, I remember an analogy of accidentally destroying someone’s property, that the person would be obligated to pay them money to have their property fixed. This seems to be most in line with more modern concepts of social justice. Now I remember reading in a Catholic book arguing for limited libertarian government that in many overarching states that make too many laws for compensative justice often lead to debts being owed to the government than the person harmed. This would be similar to the question is if something like theft would be unjust because its illegal(honor centric) or because it is harmful to another(restorative justice). On a societal level, the problem I recognize in honor centric justice is that it makes offenses too subjective, and can impose a guilt sentence just because the wrong person got offended. Yet I wonder if on the cosmic level this could be so dismissed.
