I've been looking up several of my reference books for a good definition of condemnation, but evidently it's simply "judgment" based on its context, including in Rom. 8:1.
It's clear from other passages that Christians can be chastised/disciplined for their wrong (Heb. 12:3-11) or die at the hand of God for sinning (1 Cor. 11:27-30 and Acts 5:1-11). So these examples are not the condemnation meant, since the person in Christ can't be condemned, according to the promise of Rom 8:1.
Could this condemnation therefore refer to a judgment of eternal rejection, whether preliminary in this life, or at the final Judgment Day to come, that those in Christ are exempted from?
I prefer answers from Protestants who accept the Apostle's Creed.
