Condemnation, conviction, what's the difference?

Condemnation comes from the enemy, is all about guilt, and asks the question, What good are you? or, How could you? The end goal of condemnation is to draw you away from God.

Conviction comes from the Holy Spirit, is all about redemption, and simply asks the question, What did you do? This is the same question that God asked Adam and Eve in the garden after they had sinned (Gen. 3). The end goal of conviction is to draw you back to God.—What’s Your Secret? page 33
