God will make a spectacle of those who condemn a true believer

If you are a true believer in God, if you have repented of your sins and trusted in Jesus to save you, then you can no longer be legally condemned to hell for your sins:

having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. (Colossians 2:14 NIV)

Some people will try to condemn you anyway, because they hate you. They will point out the sins which you have humbly repented of, and claim that you deserve to be punished. But these people are only agents of Satan, who himself will be punished for his hypocrisy. Jesus Himself will “disarm” their arguments. His death on the cross that saves us condemns them, because they have not repented in faith and yet dare to speak slander against those who have repented in faith.

And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. (Colossians 2:15)
