Of course, no one who makes such statements ever thinks they are in the latter group. Someone else is. They look out with clarity and discernment about who and what is Christendom, and who and what is God's Kingdom.
“Two men went up to the temple to pray. One was a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed, ‘God, I thank You that I am not like the other men—swindlers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week and pay tithes of all that I receive.’

But the tax collector stood at a distance, unwilling even to lift up his eyes to heaven. Instead, he beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner!’

I tell you, this man, rather than the Pharisee, went home justified. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.” Luke 18:10-14
Better worry about your own judgment and that of those whom the Lord has placed on your heart.
The epistles of the Apostles and Revelation clearly state the coming judgement on the apostate church. But it happens after the Lord Jesus has taken the real Christians up to be with Him. After the wheat is gathered into the barn. The Tares who were gathered into bundles prior to the Wheat being taken to be with the Lord with be burned. Christendom is filled with mere professors of Christ who don't possess His Life. But there are many many true believers also,but they will already be taken up to be with the Lord before the Lord judges the corrupt system
