“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.”
King James Version (KJV)

John 16 9 "of sin because they believe not on me " Rejecting Jesus would be a sin unto death.

A christian bother may need prayers when he is down with a problem or a sickness.So, when his problem attracts other brothers for prayers,God who has the power to classify sins would reveal to them whether they should pray or not.No Christian brother can detect the class of sin of a fellow brother by his own observation and inspection.The case of Ananias and saphira is a good example of sin unto death.Classing sins is a holyghost affair.We cannot ask him why he judged Ananias & Saphira that way and overlook some that are stealing church money because He is all knowing.

All unrighteousness is sin, and there is a sin not unto death. We that are spiritual are to seek to restore in the spirit of meekness, less we be tempted, the one who has committed a sin not leading to death. Matthew 12:31 refers to that generation that rejected Jesus Christ, they committed the sin unto death. It is true if you die in unbelief, you have committed the sin of blasphemy. We will only know once we get to heaven, and stand before the Savior who shall declare what every man shall receive. We are to examine ourselves, and see that we are in the Faith. These things are written that we sin not, but if any man sins we have an Advocate with the Father, who is Jesus Christ, the righteous one.

Most people don't understand that the meaning of death is "seperation". obviously when we die we are seperated from our body but when we aren't alive spiritually we are dead to God, we are seperated from Him, until we gain the life that He so freely offers. when we die we no longer have the option to choose God or man so we have to make that desicion while we still can. God is waiting for us to make that movve to join Him in His Kingdom forever

I believe 1Jn5:16 is referring to physical death, while Mat12:31 is referring to spiritual death. I would like to see other thoughts on it.

This verse tells us that God will forgive us any sin for which the wages thereof is death if we ask or our brethren askes for forgiveness if they repent in prayer, but he will not forgive the sin which there is no forgiveness; that is unto death: blasphemy of the holy spirit . And we shall not pray for it or them
Matthew 12:31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy [against] the [Holy] Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.
