There is no shame or condemnation in Christ oldthenew. This is true based on the word of God. Romans 8:1-2
Therefore, [there is] now no condemnation (no adjudging guilty of wrong) for those who are in Christ Jesus.
2 [/SUP]For the law of the Spirit of life [which is] in Christ Jesus [the law of our new being] has freed me from the law of sin and of death.
It is the world..the flesh and the devil who condemns the believer and we believers should not be helping him by adding our own condemnation and sarcasm oldthenew. As far as your request to put names of people out there for condemnation? I do not hear the call and instruction from the Bible or from the Holy Spirit to condemn other Christians by name.
What I can say is many Christians as well as myself have in the past and some do so today., try to establish their own righteousness believing it to be the way to keep being saved and or keep being approved of God. After being saved by grace through faith many Christians have gone on to trying to establish their own righteousness instead of allowing Jesus to always and forever by their righteousness.
We Christians are called to look to Jesus not to self. Once we have Jesus we must seek to forever keep Jesus in the forefront of our minds despite the world...flesh and devil. Despite how much the world calls for our condemnation., despite how our flesh or other people's flesh calls us to condemn ourselves., and despite the lies of the devil who uses the lie of condemnation against us. Despite those 3 things that come at us daily in a million different ways we are to still and always look to Jesus who IS our righteousness.
Then we can stand strong because there is NO condemnation to those who are IN Christ Jesus. Amen!
