    “Similarly, we have metaphysical laws of Divine Justice and Mercy.”

    Is the mercy applied according to a law or is it the Divine suspension of law?

    If anything, I think that Divine Law is a manifestation of His Mercy. We need predictability and well defined limits.

    But in reality, I think all of the above are true. We’re not discussing how Hashem really is, but how we perceive His actions. And how He chooses to show Himself. When dealing with the human condition, conflicting answers are often (usually?) both true, in their own way.
