      2: the state of being condemned to eternal punishment in Hell
         [syn: eternal damnation]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    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.
