1 John 5:17 ESV All wrongdoing is sin, but there is sin that does not lead to death. Last night at church we had a discussion on this passage. There are various interpretations people have of it. In your view, what is the sin not unto death. Keep in mind this passage: Romans 6:23 ESV 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
