Bible verses to fight feeling condemned and condemnation

Bible Verses to Fight Condemnation
Bible verses to fight condemnation include:
1. If any person is in Christ, they are a new creation because old things have passed away and all things have become new. (2 Corinthians 5:17)

To claim this Bible verse and use it to defeat thoughts and feelings of condemnation, you have to be in Christ or get saved. 

To get saved say with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord" and believe in your heart that when He died for our sins, God raised Him from the dead and you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)
Put on the helmet of salvation Ephesians 6

2. One thing I do is, forgetting those things which are behind I reach forward to those things which are ahead. (Philippians 3:13)

This is an awesome Bible verse to confess and meditate on when thoughts of the evil things you did in your past enter your mind trying to make you feel condemned because of the mistakes in your past.

It is also a great Bible verse to remind yourself when people remind you of the bad things you did in your past so that they can keep you chained in feelings of guilt and remorse instead of enjoying the freedom of Christ.
One thing I do is, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those which are ahead, I press toward the goal Philippians 3:13-14

3. I am free and free indeed because he/she who the Son sets free is free indeed. (Philippians 3:13)

This is a good Scripture to remind yourself when your past creeps up on you and tries to make you feel condemned. 
I am free and free indeed because he/she who the Son sets free is free indeed John 8:36

4. As far as the East is from the West, so far has God removed my sins from me. (Psalm 103:12)

This is another great Bible verse to remind yourself every morning so that you can start your day without feeling condemned.

5. God did not send His Son to condemn the world. He sent Him so that the world might be saved through Him. (John 3:17)

6. If your heart condemns you, God is greater than your heart and He knows all things. (Adapted 1 John 3:20)
This is a great Bible verse to remind yourself whenever feelings of condemnation cross your mind. 

7. I do not condemn you. (John 8:11)
Meditate on this Bible verses and visualize Jesus saying it to you the way He said it to the woman who had been caught committing adultery to fight condemnation.

How to Stop Feeling Condemned as a Christian
If you want to stop feeling condemned as a Christian I suggest that you follow these steps:
1. Confess your sins to God
Confess the things that you did that make you feel condemned in front of God because the Bible tells us that If we confess our sins, God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to purify us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)

To confess your sins, you can pray, Heavenly Father I ask You in the name of Jesus to forgive me of (name your sins).

You can also pray, Heavenly Father I ask You in the name of Jesus not to withhold your tender mercies from me. 

Let your loving-kindness and truth always keep me safe because I am surrounded by many problems and my sins have caught up with me so that I am not able to look up. 

I am discouraged because they are more than the hairs of my head but please O Lord God, help me. (Psalm 40:11-13)

2. Receive God's forgiveness
After asking God to forgive you, you have to receive His forgiveness by believing that He has forgiven you even if you do not feel forgiven.

To help you feel forgiven, you can pray, Father God I thank you because You are good and ready to forgive. You are also abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You (Psalm 86:5) like I do today and I thank You for forgiving me of my sins. 

You can also remind yourself of If your heart condemns you, God is greater than your heart and He knows all things (Adapted 1 John 3:20) whenever thoughts of condemnation enter your mind after you have confessed your sins to God. 

3. Right the wrongs
Righting the wrongs you have done is another important thing you can do to stop feeling condemned as a Christian. 

A rough guide to follow when compensating people for the harm you have caused them is to give them four times what they have lost through your actions. We can see this from Zacchaeus who told Jesus, If I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I will restore it to them fourfold. (Luke 19:8)

King David also declared that the rich man who had slaughtered the poor man's lamb for his guest should also Restore fourfold for the ewe lamb. (2 Samuel 12:6)

Therefore if you have stolen $1000, make an effort to repay back $4000. 

If the wrong that you did does not involve money, estimate the monetary value of the harm you caused the way a Judge in a Court of law would calculate a pain and suffering settlement.

As you do so, ask God's Holy Spirit to guide you in this matter. Perfect examples of such cases include spreading rumors that destroyed a person's reputation, marriage or career.  

If the person you harmed with your words or deeds has died or moved or if trying to contact them to right the wrong would cause them more harm, do the good deed to a less fortunate member of your society. 

For example, you can give decide to buy food worth $10 each month for a homeless person until you clear your "debt" of $4000. You can also pledge to give a Christian ministry which feeds orphans $10 each month until you clear your "debt".

4. Sin no more
As you work on righting the wrongs you have done, you also have to stop doing those same wrongs and all other wrongs. 

We see this from Jesus who told the woman who had been caught committing adultery for He told her, I do not condemn you, go and sin no more. (John 8:11)

Therefore make a commitment to yourself that you will stop sinning and try to always do the right thing in the sight of God.

Make it a point to especially stop doing the things that make you feel condemned as a Christian so that after you  have received God's forgiveness and have been washed by the blood of Jesus you do not behave like A dog which returns to its own vomit or a pig, which having been washed goes back to wallow in the mire (2 Peter 2:22) so that you can stop wallowing in feelings of condemnation. 

5. Stop receiving condemnation
If people try to make you feel condemned by reminding you of what you did in the past, do not receive their condemnation since God has already forgiven you for those sins. 

To do this remind yourself that All people have sinned and fallen short of the grace of God. (Romans 3:23) This means that even though their sins are not known publicly like yours, they are also sinners and so they do not have any right to try and make you feel guilty. 

Another Bible verse you can meditate on when people are saying or doing things to try to make you feel condemned is, Who is the person who condemns us? For Jesus died for us and is risen and seated at the right hand of God and He also intercedes for us. (Romans 8:34)
