Elder James Allen: Oct 25, 2015

On October 25, 2015, in Uncategorized, by admin

Elder Allen speaks on the topic, “What is a sin unto death and a sin not unto death?”  The term “death” used in the text verses, I John 5: 16-17 refers to spiritual death/ a loss of fellowship with The Lord while still in this world.   In Jeremiah 7: 3-16 we learn that God will not hear prayers for His children who are in a state of perpetual rebellion (“a sin unto death”).  God tells us in Isaiah 30: 8-15 that rebellious children want to hear only “smooth” things.  In Hebrews 6: 1-6 we learn that it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, but have fallen away, to be renewed unto repentance.

In the second portion of the message, we learn that we can admonish a child of God who is guilty of a “sin not unto death”.  James 5:20  says we can “save a soul from death.”  (While we cannot lose our eternal salvation, it is possible for us to lose the “joy of our salvation”.)  In Romans 15:14, Paul said he was persuaded that those in the church are able to admonish one another.  Love your brother enough to admonish/talk with him about his sin in a tender manner.  Galatians 6:2  “Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.”
