    I see that all sin is naturally punished. E.g. if someone drinks too much, he can die from alcohol poisoning. He can't do some good deeds to counter-act the effects.

    Well belief in creation ex-nihilo theism gets you the infinite God part (eternal, independent, self-existent, not dependent on or limited by anything besides himself etc.)

    If it is not an attribute of God then from where does man receive the concept?

    Well I think 2 is entailed by 1. By being infinite in justice, God would perfectly make sure that every wrong doing is met with its proper consequence. To do less would contradict the belief of infinite justice.

    And every sin against an infinite God would be more than any finite being could make up for committing.

    ...which establishes the necessity of punishment after death (for those not covered by Christ), and salvation by grace. Thank you for your help.

    Haha, I was re-reading your older posts, and now they all make sense. :D
