Yes, it is!
Life is just like school. If you knew everything, you will not need to go to school. And if you knew everything and still went to school, you would never make any mistake and would always get everything right.
We go to school to learn. On a greater scale, life is truly a school so long as we are willing to learn and get better. If you are a Bible reader, you will know the story of Paul who was against Christianity. He killed a lot of Christians until one day he came to the realization that he was wrong. Since that day, he went on to convert millions into Christianity.
The key is always about your intends. If you are genuine and convinced about what you do in life, one day an opportunity will be given to you to realize whether what you do is good or bad. That will be the turning point of your life.
The beautiful thing about life is that it is regulated by Laws. If someone committed crimes, regardless if they were terrible or not, they will face the consequences. This is the Law of sowing and reaping. There will come a day where the person who committed crimes will have to reap the consequences of their actions. Such consequences are in the same nature of the action.
Unlike Human Laws, once the person has paid their dues, they are as clean as someone who never committed a crime because they have learned their lesson, but the hard way.
If repentance was not an option, then no one should be happy because everyone cannot agree on the notion of "Terrible Crime". A crime is a crime but the Human Justice is not always in line with Justice rendered by the Laws of Creation or God's Living Will. Humans should have learned to understand the Living Laws and model their Justice from it, then everything would be fair, consistent, and Just.
