What is the sin unto death?


Did you know that there is a sin that leads to death and we should not pray for that person? It is not the “Unpardonable sin against the Holy Spirit” which only an unbeliever can commit!

If you see a Christian brother or sister sinning in a way that does not lead to death, you should pray, and God will give that person life. But there is a sin that leads to death, and I am not saying you should pray for those who commit it. 1-John 5:16 NLT.

I believe this is a sexual sin, Paul the Apostle rebuked the Corinthian Church for looking the other way while one among them was having sexual relations with his stepmother, it was so appalling to him as he said; “Even the Gentiles don’t commit this sin”.

Paul gave this man into Satan’s hand to kill his body in order to save his soul. I can hardly believe the report about the sexual immorality going on among you–something that even pagans don’t do. I am told that a man in your church is living in sin with his stepmother.1-Corinthians 5: 1 NLT.

I have decided to deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of his flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. 1-Corinthians 5:5 NASB.

Some attend Church while committing sexual sins, and they have no guilt or conviction of their sin, this begs the question, are they really saved? The believer has the Holy Spirit who works with our conscience that will accuse or excuse us regarding sin. Paul wrote that his conscience was clear with his walk with God. Salvation is through a person, Jesus Christ alone! Being religious, going to Church, confession, taking Communion will not save you but if you are “In Christ” through faith then those things are not in vain!

True repentance of sin is turning away from it, not a revolving door of confession and communion deceiving yourself while willfully sinning. I can say this as I have been there and gave up realizing I loved my sin more than the things of God. I thank the Lord Jesus that he sought me and brought me to the “Godly Repentance” that leads to salvation. Worldly repentance is in vain, it does not lead to true repentance of sins and being broken, becoming as a little child. All of this is through the Holy Spirit’s work of regeneration.

The Bible says those who practice sexual sins and the other sins that God hates will not enter Heaven, scripture says that they are prisoners of Satan and do his will. And they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, having been held captive by him to do his will. 2-Timothy 2: 26 NLT.

For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God Ephesians 5: 5 NET.

By the way. that man in the Corinthian church repented and Paul told them to go get him, bring him back into their fellowship.

The Good News is Jesus can set the prisoner free and Satan can’t stop him.


Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11: 28 NLT.


If the Son sets you free, you are truly free. John 8: 36 NLT. Teachers/Preachers of God’s word have a responsibility to reprove and rebuke when it comes to the Church, the Body of Christ. As a Christian I am troubled at the things being accepted in today’s modern Churches. We are the light of the world and should always avoid the sins that God hates especially of immoral sexual nature, our bodies being God’s Temple.


In the Book of Revelation the Lord Jesus judges the Churches, he cast Jezebel upon a bed of affliction because of her sexual sins with the believers, and he is still active in the Churches today, for he is the Good Sheppard!
