Damnation


"In Rom. 13:2, means "condemnation," which comes on those who" withstand God's ordinance of magistracy. This sentence of "condemnation comes not from the magistrate, but from God, whose" authority is thus resisted. "In 1 Cor. 11:29 (R.V., "judgment") this word means condemnation, "in the sense of exposure to severe temporal judgements from God," as the following verse explains. "In Rom. 14:23 the word "damned" means "condemned" by one's own "conscience, as well as by the Word of God. The apostle shows" here that many things which are lawful are not expedient; and that in using our Christian liberty the question should not "simply be, Is this course I follow lawful? but also, Can I" follow it without doing injury to the spiritual interests of a "brother in Christ? He that "doubteth", i.e., is not clear in his" "conscience as to "meats", will violate his conscience "if he" "eat," and in eating is condemned; and thus one ought not so to" "use his liberty as to lead one who is "weak" to bring upon" himself this condemnation.
