There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Romans 8:1, KJV. Condemnations is defined as: adjudging guilty, unfit for use, or forfeited; the act of dooming to punishment or forfeiture. Think about a condemned building; it is of no use to anyone. God says. “No” to condemnation. And this is not a viable tool for getting people to do things in the name of Christianity. God loves us and may work with us through conviction, chastening and correction, but never through condemnation.
