Life in the world to come as well as an improvement in this life is
guaranteed to those who earnestly and honestly do Teshuva. Therefore,
how does this coalesce with the fact that many sins which people
transgress on a regular basis are punishable by death according to
halacha? If a person has been condemned to death, How can he improve
his life in this world and connect with the tree of life and the
promise of a place in the world to come?
