John says that if we ask anything according to God’s will, He we will have what we ask for. So, why am I not receiving the things I pray for? In this message we wrestle with that tough question in the light of this and other Scriptures on prayer. We also consider John’s puzzling statements regarding "sins that lead to death." Are all sins the same in the eyes of God? Also, what are the sins that lead to death? Can Christians who commit such sins be forgiven if they repent? Finally, John reminds us that the whole world is under the sway of the wicked one, while we Christians know Him who is always true.
