condemnation. This word is used to denote the final loss of the soul, but it is not always to be understood in this sense in the sacred Scripture. Thus it is said in Romans 13:2, "They that resist shall receive to themselves damnation," i.e. condemnation, "from the rulers, who are not a terror to good works, but to the evil." Again, in 1 Corinthians 11:29, "He that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself," i.e. condemnation; exposes himself to severe temporal judgments from God, and to the judgment and censure of the wise and good. Again, Romans 14:23, "He that doubteth is damned if he eat," i.e. is condemned both by his own conscience and the word of God, because he is far from being satisfied that he is right in so doing.
