Question: What is the difference between satanic condemnation and Holy Ghost conviction and how does a person and their preacher/pastor differentiate between the two (recognizing the cut-off place so to speak so as to avoid a re-re-re-repentance situation concerning 'truly' repented-of sin)?

Answer: Condemnation tends to be generalized and brings with it a sense of hopelessness. Conviction is always very specific and comes with an inward urging to change. I'm not sure what you mean by 'cut-off place' and the idea of avoiding a 're-re-re-repentance situation concerning 'truly' repented-of sin.' Perhaps you could explain this more clearly.
