Two damnations A. Eternal damnation i. There is a damnation which is eternal which all who are not under the blood Christ will experience. ii. Damnation - 1. The action of condemning, or fact of being condemned (by judicial sentence, etc.); condemnation. 2. Theol. Condemnation to eternal punishment in the world to come; the fact of being damned, or doomed to hell; spiritual ruin; perdition. (Opposed to salvation.) iii. Adam's sin in the garden of Eden eternally damned the entire human race. 1. Rom 5:16 - And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. 2. Rom 5:18 - Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. iv. The Pharisees were children of the devil who were condemned to eternal damnation. 1. Mar 3:29 - But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation: 2. Mat 23:33 - Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? v. The souls of the wicked will have eternal damnation in hell upon death, and their bodies will have eternal damnation in the lake of fire after they are resurrected. 1. Luk 16:22 - And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; 2. Luk 16:23 - And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 3. Joh 5:29 - And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. 4. Rev 20:15 - And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. B. Temporal damnation i. There is also a damnation which is temporal which both the elect and reprobate can experience in this life. ii. Those who resist legitimate God-ordained civil government will receive damnation in the form of punishment (jail, beatings, death, etc.). 1. Rom 13:1 - Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 2. Rom 13:2 - Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 3. Rom 13:3 - For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4. Rom 13:4 - For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. iii. Christians who abuse the Lord's supper, not discerning the Lord's body while partaking of it, will receive temporal damnation such as sickness or physical death. 1. 1Co 11:28 - But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 2. 1Co 11:29 - For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. 3. 1Co 11:30 - For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
