So, if A accuses B of wrongdoing, and the outcome is in B's favor, A gets put to death? That's a pretty harsh way of enforcing the "no contention" rule.

Even with the mercy of the atonement one who sins must suffer for those sins as a part of the justice. The atonement helps us understand the punishment will not go on forever, but that is part of the Godly sorrow we must experience before the gift of the atonement takes over. There are too many people today who think that just because we say sorry, oops, I made a mistake that all will be forgotten and forgiven. We must all follow the steps of repentance and perhaps for the most serious sin, a most serious punishment is needed.
