1 John 5
16 If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.
17 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.
- two kind of sin: sin not unto death and sin unto death
- if our brother sin not unto death, we pray for him
- if it is sin unto death, apostate, we do not need pray anymore
