there is now no condemnation ...

"'no condemnation' ... an absolute statement, not a 'maybe', not 'a little bit of condemnation left', not 'the possibility of some condemnation in some circumstances' ... but a straight, unequivocal 'NO' condemnation. Remember what it was that put us under condemnation? ... Adam's sin (5:16,18). What makes us aware of that sin and condemnation? ... The law (3:20, 5:20, 7:7-12). What releases us from sin/law/death condemnation? ... the death of Jesus Christ as our substitute, which is considered our death (6:1-11, 7:1-6)."
