Christ's sinlessness makes him able to pay for others and not need to pay for his own sin. But that would not make the degree or amount of time equate. The fact that Jesus is infinite God makes his sacrifice sufficient. This, if I understand right, is part of Anselm's argument In "Cur Deus Homo" or "Why the God-Man". This would mean that cults that deny the deity of Christ would not have a Savior sufficient to atone for all sin. Jesus must be Infinite God in order for the atonement to be complete.
The sinner at death without redemption is separated from God for eternity. Jesus at death was separated from God for eternity but being a perfect being and sinless was able to redeem Himself, and with him all others who believe, after death and return to God. The separation was the same but the sinner can't redeem themselves and so save themselves from this eternal separation while Jesus, who was sinless, can and did for all of us.
