  • Remember John is a Jewish apostle and Jesus told his apostles to do what the Pharisees said to do because the temple was still standing and the Pharisees and teachers of the law enforced the law.

    The Pharisees and teachers of the law governed the Jews and would put to death people for sins committed that required death.

    So let''s say a believer sees his brother in Christ commit a sin that leads to death---per old law regulations---one then should not pray he not be put to death.

    That works for Gentiles too, of course, even though they are not under the law, but we are all required to obey the law of our Government.

    There is also an added consideration here, and that is how there is a connection to sin and sickness and being forgiven and healed; that would make another good discussion.

    Remember how the people who didn't properly engage in the Lord's supper got sick and died.

    Remember too how Ananias and Sapphira lied about the money and they dropped dead.

    I believe that during the laying of the foundation, God was real strict at times to teach what to do and not to do.

    • 1 Corinthians 11

      Correcting an Abuse of the Lord’s Supper

      17In the following directives I have no praise for you, for your meetings do more harm than good. 18In the first place, I hear that when you come together as a church, there are divisions among you, and to some extent I believe it. 19No doubt there have to be differences among you to show which of you have God’s approval. 20So then, when you come together, it is not the Lord’s Supper you eat, 21for when you are eating, some of you go ahead with your own private suppers. As a result, one person remains hungry and another gets drunk. 22Don’t you have homes to eat and drink in? Or do you despise the church of God by humiliating those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you? Certainly not in this matter!

      23For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, 24and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” 25In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” 26For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

      27So then, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. 28Everyone ought to examine themselves before they eat of the bread and drink from the cup. 29For those who eat and drink without discerning the body of Christ eat and drink judgment on themselves. 30That is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep. 31But if we were more discerning with regard to ourselves, we would not come under such judgment. 32Nevertheless, when we are judged in this way by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be finally condemned with the world.

      33So then, my brothers and sisters, when you gather to eat, you should all eat together. 34Anyone who is hungry should eat something at home, so that when you meet together it may not result in judgment.

      And when I come I will give further directions.



      We can see from these scriptures that believers got sick and some have died from their sickness. From the scriptures we can see that what they did not result in the ultimate sin of blasphemy, but they are being disciplined, some even unto death.

      I do believe the New Testament times are special times, the foundation being laid, and there were some strict consequences, because people were watching and learning. It might seem too tough to hear, but from their discipline, we can see the importance of obedience.

      We can compare the above scriptures to that of the time of Moses and the giving of the old law. Aaron's two sons were killed because they added things to God's commandments.

      • So when someone says the sin leading to death is the ultimate sin of blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, we can see that it is not what the scriptures are saying.

        • There are a lot of people who are afraid they did the ultimate sin of blasphemy of the Holy Spirit.

          Those afraid that they did that, probably did not, because someone blaspheming in such a way are the kind of person who would never see it, or even worry about it.
