To Whosoever has an ear to hear?

1John 5:6 speaks of "SIN NOT UNTO DEATH" and "A SIN UNTO DEATH".

Gaining a heart to do God's Will is what dictates that our sins are not unto death. When our sins are revealed to us, such a heart is drawn by the strength of God to pray for forgivness through repentance and receive the blood of Christ.

"Not yet gaining a heart to do the Will of the Father" is the sin that is unto death, biblically known as "fornication" or "blasphemy against the Spirit of God". Hearts that are drawn by a "will" other than God's Will, desire the things of the flesh and not the spirit, and will not pray for repentance unto Christ.

It is essentiallly the same as the unpardonable sin. This would be any sin that we cherish so much that we don't want to get rid of it but we want to drag it along, thinking that surely one little sin isen't going to keep us out of heaven BUT IT WILL ! P.

, if you read the ENTIRE scriptures, you see that it is the continually refusing to repent of sin. those who worry about this are obviously not guilty of it.

Bible states: fornication and adultery are against the body. Jesus atoned for all sin to free us from it's power to condemn., but there are some sins which have a physical reward,I think Paul was really saying: Don't ask for the knowledge of what that sin is because once you know then you are accountable.Sowing to the flesh always reaps corruption in the flesh, even death that is why we all die.

If we refuse to accepts God's pardon for our sin, THAT is a sin unto spiritual death. If we are believers yet continually refuse to walk in the light we have, it could result in our physical death to preserve our spirit from death. There are scriptural examples of both

Steve, are you bragging about all the negative attention you get on this site? What you do and how you present yourself is nothing to brag about.

Sin leads to death. Most of the time spiritual death, but occasionally physical death. If you don't die physically, then you can repent and be spiritually reconciled to God.

, elder, surely you must admit that i add a level of excitement to the blogs that wouldn't be there without me. right?

Jesus talks about this in Matthew 12:31-32. Paul talks about it in Hebrews 6:4-8. It is persistent refusal to accept God's love which destroys in us the desire to be reconciled to Him. Because of the freedom purchased for man by Christ, if there is no desire for forgiveness and a rejection of the Agent of God (the Holy Spirit) sent to bring conviction, then there is no forgiveness for sin. Sin destroys desire for reconciliation--see Adam and Eve in sin before promise, I will put enmity. Genesis 3:15.
