1 John 5:16 If anyone sees his brother sinning a sin which does not lead to death, he will ask, and He will give him life for those who commit
sin not leading to death. There is sin leading to death. I do not say that he should pray about that.
What is this sin leading to death that we are not allowed to pray to God for forgiveness?
Lev 20:13 “If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.”
Sodomy is an abomination to the Lord and is a sin leading to death. In the OT all sodomites must be put to death for they have defiled the land.
Lev 18:22, 29-30 “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination... For whoever commits any of these abominations, the persons who commit them shall be cut off from among their people. ‘Therefore, you shall keep My ordinance, so that you do not commit any of these abominable customs which were committed before you, and that you do not defile yourselves by them: I am the Lord your God.’ “
In the Old Testament, there are only a few sins that lead to death such as sodomy, idolatry, offering human as sacrifices and incest; all these sinners must be put to death.
What about Christians?
1 Cor 5:1, 4-6 It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and such sexual immorality as is not even named among the Gentiles— that a man has his father’s wife! And you are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he who has done this deed might be taken away from among you. For I indeed, as absent in body but present in spirit, have already judged (as though I were present) him who has so done this deed. In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when you are gathered together, along with my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. Your glorying is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump?
Incest was committed in the Corinth church and the sinners who are without repentance were cast out of the church and delivered to Satan for the destruction of their flesh.
Rom 1:26-27,32 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.... who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.
Today’s distorted truth or possibly heresy –
‘Love the sinners but hate their sins’
in the case of sodomites has caused many unsuspecting and misled Christians representing churches to march in gay parades supporting homosexuality. This is definitely an abomination to the Lord.
Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump?
Brethren, if we obey the word of God, then all these sodomites who refuse to repent must be cast out from His church, otherwise this little leaven will deceive and destroy His church. This is so true, for the majority of churches in the US and the West are defiled by approving sodomy. It is an abomination and a sin leading to death, which is harassing Christians and Christianity today.
