So, you meant it metaphorically, right? Not a personified entity?

Anyway, I believe that condemnation is crippling believers throughout the kingdom, and preventing them from living an overcoming life. We all battle it, and even when we learn to forgive ourselves and get back to running the race, there's the process of growing into an intimate relationship with the One who forgives others with a love that does not keep record of wrongs - that would be agape love.
Not having this understanding is the reason the Christian bookstores are full if all the self help books. People trying every new technique, fad, or 10-step for a meaningful relationship with God type of books. It is a sad sight.
It is Guilt, fear, and shame.
Guilt of the present
Fear of the afterlife
Shame if our past

The true trinity that binds most believers.
