  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Damnation 
  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.
